I Bought Me a Cat is a children's song on the lines of Old MacDonald, with a verse repeating and adding a new animal with each repeat [the last "animal" being a wife]. The accompaniment imitates the barnyard sounds of the cat, duck, goose, hen, pig, horse and cow.

I Bought Me a Cat is one of five American folk tunes which Copland arranged at the request of Benjamin Britten, who planned to program them in his Aldeburgh Music and Art Festival. Copland wrote this first set of Old American Songs for male soloist and piano in 1950 and they were premiered in June of that year by Peter Pears with Britten at the piano. First Edition.
