Cats Musical – Old Deuteronomy lyrics

[Chorus]
CAST:
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

[Verse 1]
MUNKUSTRAP:
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

[Verse 2]
THE RUM TUM TUGGER:
Old Deuteronomy's buried nine wives
And more I am tempted to say-ninety nine
And his numerous progeny prospers and thrives
And the villiage is pround of him in his decline

[Verse 3]
MUNKUSTRAP:
At the sight of that placid and grand phsiognomy
When he sits in the sun on the vicarage wall
The oldest habitant croaks

[Chorus]
MUNKUSTRAP AND THE RUM TUM TUGGER:
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

[Verse 4]
RUM TUM TUGGER
old Deuteronomy sits in the street
he sits on the high street on market day
the bullocks may bellow the sheep may bleet
but the dogs and the herdsman will turn them away

[Verse 5]
MUNKUSTRAP
the cars and the lorries run over the curb
and the villagers put up a notice "road closed"
so that nothing untoward may chance to disturb
Deuteronomy's rest when he feels so disposed
The digestive repose of that feline's gastronomy
Must never be broken, whatever befall:

[Chorus]
And the Oldest Inhabitant croaks: "Well, of all . . .
Things. . . Can it be . . . really! . . . yes!. . . no!. . .
Ho! hi!
Oh, my eye!
my mind may be wondering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy


CAST:
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess

Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!
My mind may be wondering but I confess

I believe it is Old Deuteronomy

CAST:
Well of all things can it be really
Yes, no, ho, hi, oh my eye!

[Verse 6]
OLD DEUTERONOMY:
My legs may be tottery I must go slow
And be careful of Old Deuteronomy
