Doggy in Bed
Black Cat 2


By Josie Whitehead

Rat a Tat-Tat

There’s a knock on our door

     That goes rat-a-tat-tat.

It isn’t a donkey and it isn’t the cat.

     It isn’t a horse or a tiny wee mouse.

Oh rat-a-tat-tat –

     Who’s come to my house?                    

Rat-a-tat-tat – I can hear it again,

    And it isn’t the wind and it isn’t the rain.

Rat-a-tat-tat – Look! 

     A shiny red van!

Oh, I think that you’ve guessed . . . 

    It’s our friendly postman!
