"Hie! Diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran after the spoon."

You might recognize this classic nursery rhyme, which dates back to the 16th century, with slightly different wording. This is the version that appeared alongside this very image in The Boyd Smith Mother Goose, published in 1920. It's a timeless classic that has endured in various forms, and we're delighted to reproduce it in this manner for future generations of children! See this image as an art print!
