The Rum Tum Tugger -

Meow.

Meow.

The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat:

The Rum Tum Tugger -

If you offer me pheasant I'd rather have grouse.

If you put me in a house I would much prefer a flat,

If you put me in a flat then I'd rather have a house.

If you set me on a mouse then I only want a rat,

If you set me on a rat then I'd rather chase a mouse.

All -

The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat-

Tugger -

And there isn't any call for me to shout it:

All

For he will do

As he do do

Tugger -

And there's no doing anything about it!

Quaxo -

The Rum Tum Tugger is a terrible bore:

Tugger -

For when you let me in, then I want to go out;

I'm always on the wrong side of every door,

And as soon as I'm at home, then I'd like to get about.

I like to lie in a bureau drawer,

But I make such a fuss if I can't get out.

The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat-

Tugger -

And there isn't any use for you to doubt it:

All -

For he will do

As he do do

Tugger -

And there's no doing anything about it!

Bombalurina -

The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious beast:

Tugger -

My disobliging ways are a matter of habit.

If you offer me fish then I always want a feast;

And if there isn't any fish then I won't eat rabbit.

If you offer me cream then I sniff and sneer,

For I only like what I find for myself;

No. (Hmm)

So you'll catch me in it right up to my ears,

If you put it away on the larder shelf.

All -

The Rum Tum Tugger is artful and knowing,

The Rum Tum Tugger

Tugger -

doesn't care for a cuddle;

So I'll leap on your lap in the middle of your sewing,

Cos there's nothing I enjoy like a horrible muddle.
