Lyrics[]

There was a tailor had a mouse
High diddle lumkin feedo
They lived together in one house
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the town of Ramsey
High diddle lumkin
over the knee
High diddle lumkin feedo
The tailor thought his mouse was ill
High diddle lumkin feedo
He gave him part of a blue pill
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the town of Ramsey
High diddle lumkin
over the knee
High diddle lumkin feedo
The tailor thought his mouse would die
High diddle lumkin feedo
He baked him in an apple pie
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the town of Ramsey
High diddle lumkin
over the knee
High diddle lumkin feedo
The pie was cut, the mouse jumped out
High diddle lumkin feedo
The tailor chased him all about
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the town of Ramsey
High diddle lumkin
over the knee
High diddle lumkin feedo
The tailor thought his mouse was dead
High diddle lumkin feedo
So he caught another one instead
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the town of Ramsey
High diddle lumkin
over the knee
High diddle lumkin feedo
The tailor really loved his mice
High diddle lumkin feedo
He let them sleep on a bed of rice
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the town of Ramsey
High diddle lumkin
over the knee
High diddle lumkin feedo
The tailor chased them 'cross the bay
High diddle lumkin feedo
He chased them to this very day
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the lab of ACME
High diddle lumkin
Pinky and the Brain
High diddle lumkin feedo
High diddle lumkin
Tailor Tumpkin
In the lab of ACME
High diddle lumkin
Pinky and the Brain
High diddle lumkin feedo

Trivia[]

  • This particular segment has been the subject of comparisons to the later infamous series- Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain; due to how similarly both the tailor and Elmyra Duff acted towards the mice.
