Hey Diddle Diddle Help Opus Details
This English nonsense rhyme for children dates back to at least 1765. This arrangement is for a string trio of violin, viola and cello.

Hey diddle diddle, The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
