"The Dog Had the Giggles"

Hey, biddle, biddle!
The dog had the giggles,
  The cheese was on the moon;
The cat lied down
To make a plan,
  and the cheese was gone by noon.

The modern version
Hey diddle diddle,
The Cat and the fiddle,
The Cow jumped over the moon,
The little Dog laughed to see such sport,
To which the Dish ran away with the Spoon.
The origins of "Hey Diddle Diddle" from 1765
High diddle diddle,
The Cat played the Fiddle,
The Cow jump'd over the Moon,
The little dog laugh'd to see such Craft,
To which the Dish kicked the Spoon.
