Little Tommy Stout

Never got credit for pulling Pussy Cat out of the well. 
But everyone remembers Little Johnny Flynn.

Who the hell is Little Johnny Flynn???!!

Who threw her in?
Little Johnny Flynn.
Who pulled her out?
Little Tommy Stout.
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor pussy cat...

See? All that freakin' MotherGoose has is blame for Johnny? Where's the justice? I say Tommy's due some respect after all these years.

Sounds like typical Hibernia bashin' t'me. Damn English gits and their fairy tales. Always blamin' it on the Micks.

Never thought of that. But, as stout is Irish as well, they cancel each other out, no?

If you look up ding dong bell on wikipedia, you'll find the culprit is "Little Johnny Green." It doesn't bash the Irish, but it doesn't rhyme, either.

Stout is Irish only in a glass. Otherwise it sounds German or Dutch.
