The Rum Tum Tugger

The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat:
If you offer me pheasant I would 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.
The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat-

And there isn't any call for me to shout it:
For he will do
As he do do
And there's no doing anything abou-oowouwout it!

The Rum Tum Tugger is a terrible bore:
Oh, 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 get home, then I'd like to get about.
I like to lie in the bureau drawer,
But I make such a fuss if I can't get out.

The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat-
And there isn't any use for you to doubt it:
For he will do
As he do do
And there's no doing anything abooou
-oowouw
-oowouwout it!

The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious beast:
My disobliging ways are a matter of habit.
Now, if you offer me fish then I always want a feast;
And if there isn't any fish then I won't eat a rabbit.
If you offer me cream then I sniff and sneer,
For I only like what I find for myself;
No!

So you'll catch me in it right up to the ears,
And you put it away on the larder shelf.
The Rum Tum Tugger is artful and knowing,
The Rum Tum Tugger doesn't care for a cuddle;
So I'll leap on your lap in the middle of your sewing,
For there\rquote s nothing I enjoy like a horrible muddle.

And there isn't any need for me to spout it:
For he will do

And there's no doing anything abou
