This French folk song is the story of a shepherdess who is making cheese in the presence of a cat that would desperately love to have a taste of the cheese. She told the cat she would punish him if he stuck his paw in the cheese. Well, the cat listened, but stuck his chin into the cheese instead. The story ends there, but we might agree that the shepherdess was not at all pleased with the outcome.
