The entire tribe rejoins as their benevolent and wise
Leader Old Deuteronomy arrives. The cats adore and respect him.

Solo:
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

All:
Well of all things can it be really
No. Yes. Ho. Hi. Oh my eye!
My mind may be wandering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

Solo:
Old Deuteronomy's lived a long time
He's a cat who has lived many lives in succession
He was famous in proverb and famous in rhyme
A long while before Queen Victoria's accession

Old Deuteronomy's buried nine wives
And more I am tempted to say ninety-nine
And his numerous progeny prospers and thrives
And the village is proud of him in his decline

At the sight of that placid and bland physiognomy
When he sits in the sun on the vicarage wall
The oldest inhabitant croaks:

Well of all things can it be really
No. Yes. Ho. Hi. Oh my eye!
My mind may be wandering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

All:
Well of all things can it be really
No. Yes. Ho. Hi. Oh my eye!
My mind may be wandering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

Well of all things can it be really
No. Yes. Ho. Hi. Oh my eye!
My mind may be wandering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

Well of all things can it be really
No. Yes. Ho. Hi. Oh my eye!

Old duteronomy:
My legs may be tottery, I must go slow
And be careful of Old Deuteronomy

Munkustrap has assembled some entertainment for Deuteronomy.
The cats put on a show called "The Awful Battle of the Pekes and
The Pollicles together with The Marching Song of the Pollicle Dogs. "
In the show, which Munkustrap narrates, the cats dress up as two
Rival dog factions: the Pekes and the Pollicles. The two groups
Bark ceaselessly at each other, until they are frightened away by
The great Rumpus Cat, a sleek, powerful feline.
