THE WALTZING CAT
(Music by Leroy Anderson 1950,
Lyrics by Mitchell Parish 1951)
There once was a tomcat, a wonderful tomcat, who had all the usual faults,
But this cat was different, what made him so different was his inclination to waltz,
Each night this feline Sir
to his lady fair would purr:
I love to waltz (meow)
On a night like this with stars in the skies,
Come, let us waltz (meow)
While I look into your lovely green eyes.
I never knew what a little waltz could do,
Till the night I danced with you,
Lightly as a feather, let's pussy foot together,
I'd love to spend (meow) all my nine lives just waltzing with you.
