Old Deuteronomy -

Jellicle Cats come out to-night,

Jellicle Cats come one come all:

Jemima, Victoria, Old Deuteronomy and Munkustrap -

The Jellicle Moon is shining bright-

Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball.

Alonzo -

Jellicle Cats are black and white,

Jellicle Cats are rather small;

Jellicle Cats are merry

Pouncival -

and bright,

Jemima and Victoria -

And pleasant to hear when we caterwaul

Skimbleshanks -

Jellicle Cats have cheerful faces,

Tumblebrutus -

Jellicle Cats have bright black eyes;

Mistoffelees -

We like to practice our airs and graces

All -

And wait for the Jellicle Moon to rise.

Admetus, Munkustrap and Plato -

Jellicle Cats develop slowly,

Tumblebrutus -

Jellicle Cats are not too big;

Asparagus -

Jellicle Cats are roly-poly,

Mistoffelees and Skimbleshanks -

We know how to dance a gavotte and a jig.

Demeter -

Until the Jellicle Moon appears

Bombalurina -

We make our toilette and take our repose:

Jennyanydots -

Jellicles wash behind their ears,

Jellylorum -

Jellicles dry between their toes.

Coricopat and Tantomile -

Jellicle Cats are white and black,

Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer -

Jellicle Cats are of moderate size;

Tumblebrutus, Pouncival and Skimbleshanks -

Jellicles jump like a jumping jack,

Cassandra -

Jellicle Cats have moonlit eyes.

All -

We're quiet enough in the morning hours,

We're quiet enough in the afternoon,

Mistoffelees and Munkustrap -

Preserving our terpsichorean powers

All -

To dance by the light of the Jellicle Moon.

Alonzo -

Jellicle Cats are black

Victoria, Etcetera and Rumpelteazer -

and white,

Tumblebrutus, Skimbleshanks and Mistoffelees -

Jellicle Cats (as we said) are small;

Admetus, Munkustrap and Plato -

If it happens to be a stormy night

Tumblebrutus, Skimbleshanks and Mistoffelees -

We will practice a caper or two in the hall.

All -

If it happens the sun is shining bright

Rum Tum Tugger -

You would say we had nothing to do at all:

All -

We are resting and saving ourselves to be right

For the Jellicle Moon and the Jellicle Ball.

Jellicle Cats come out to-night,

Jellicle Cats come one come all:

The Jellicle Moon is shining bright-

Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball.

Jellicle Cats come out to-night,

Jellicle Cats come one come all:

The Jellicle Moon is shining bright-

Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball.
