Three blind mice. Three blind mice.
See how they run. See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a sight in your life?
As three blind mice.

This  Mother Goose Rhyme was initially published on the front page of many newspapers in Massachusetts in 1892.  All three rodents that were later hospitalized, stated they had no idea that the woman they were chasing trying to scare, was Lizzie Borden.
