Three Blind Mice - Billy Taylor

Three Blind Mice is an English nursery rhyme and musical round. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 3753.

The modern words are:

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?

from Wikipedia

Kingston Calypso - Monty Norman Orchestra

Three blind mice in a row
Three blind mice there they go
Marching down the street single file
To a calypso beat all the while
They’re looking for the cat
The cat that swallowed the rat
They want to show the cat the attitude
of three blind mice

Three blind mice here and there
Three blind mice everywhere
Searching all around for the cat
All over Kingston town pitter pat
They got the carving knife
To cut the pussycat’s life
The puss will get the knife for triflin
with three blind mice
So beware
Three blind mice
Watch your step
Three blind mice
Deadly mice
Three blind mice
Where they go?
Three blind mice
What they do?
Three blind mice
Oh, the mice
Three blind mice
Deadly mice

‘The Three Blind Mice’ are paid  assassins working for Dr. No. After Strangways informs Professor Dent of  his findings on Crab Key, Dent arranges for ‘The Three Blind Mice’ to  kill Strangways and his secretary Miss Trueblood. ‘The Three Blind Mice’  are killed when their plan to force Bond off the road backfires sending  them careering off a cliff to their death.

They never really make an attempt on Bond’s life. They’re waiting  outside of the Bond’s hotel in Jamaica, but as they’re preparing to  shoot Bond, a car drives by and they miss their chance. They also chase  Bond in their car, but that ends with Bond getting away and them getting  an introduction to the bottom of a ravine.
The Three Blind Mice are not mentioned in the film’s opening or end  credits. The name “Three Blind Mice”, comes from the song that plays in  the background when they are first introduced at the beginning of the  film.

The opening scenes are in Kingston, Jamaica,  where the ‘three blind mice’ amble through Harbour  Street, downtown. John Strangway is gunned down by the ‘mice’ and  spirited away after a bridge game at the ‘Queens Club’, now the Liguanea Club, 80 Knutsford  Boulevard –  a private sports club and hotel, and also the home  of the Jamaican Squash Association.
