Cats (Musical) - Old Deuteronomy Songtext

MISTOFFELEES:
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

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 village is proud of him in his decline

MISTOFFELEES:
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!
Yes...No...Ho...Hi! Oh my eye!
My mind may be wandering but I confess
I believe it is Old Deuteronomy"

TUGGER:
Old Deuteronomy sits in the street
He sits in the High Street on market day
The Bullocks may bellow, the sheep they may bleat
But the dogs and the herdsmen will turn them away

MISTOFFELEES:
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

TUGGER:
The digestive repose of that feline's gastronomy
Must never be broken, whatever befall

MISTOFFELEES:
And the oldest inhabitant croaks,

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

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

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

Pollicle dogs and cats all must
Jellicle cats and dogs all must
Like undertakers, come to dust

MUNKUSTRAP:
And now that Old Deuteronomy has appeared, Jellicle Cats can now all
REJOICE!
