“I Love Little Pussy” is an old nursery rhyme, dating back to the 18th century England.

The song was first published in 1830 in “The Child’s Song Book” and its lyrics have been attributed to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’s author, Jane Taylor.

“I love little pussy” lyrics have been changed lately as the term “pussy” has more a deprecatory meaning today. “But pussy and I, very gently will play” was replaced with “and her and I, very gently will play”. The term “pussy” can also be replaced with “kitty”

“I love little pussy” Lyrics

Original version:
I love little pussy,b
Her coat is so warm,
And if I don’t hurt her,
She’ll do me no harm.
So I’ll not pull her tail,
Nor drive her away,
But pussy and I,
Very gently will play.

Additional lyrics

Some versions have additional lyrics:

I’ll sit by the fire
and give her some food
and Pussy will love me
because I am good.
