    Lyrics

    Are you blind when you're born? Can you see in the dark?
    Dare you look at a king? Would you sit on his throne?
    Can you say of your bite that it's worse than your bark?
    Are you cock of the walk when you're walking alone?
    Because Jellicles are and Jellicles do
    Jellicles do and Jellicles would
    Jellicles would and Jellicles can
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do

    When you fall on your head do you land on your feet?
    Are you tense when you sense there's a storm in the air?
    Can you find your way blind when you're lost in the street?
    Do you know how to go to the Heaviside Layer?

    Because Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicles do and Jellicles can
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicles do and Jellicles can
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do

    Can you ride on a broomstick to places far distant?
    Familiar with candle, with book and with bell?
    Were you Whittington's friend? The Pied Piper's assistant?
    Have you been an alumnus of Heaven and Hell?

    Are you mean like a minx? Are you lean like a lynx?
    Are you keen to be seen when you're smelling a rat?
    Were you there when the pharoahs commissioned the sphinx?
    If you were, and you are, you're a Jellicle cat

    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

    We can dive through the air like a flying trapeze
    We can turn double sumersaults, bounce on a tire
    We can run up a wall, we can swing through the trees
    We can balance on bars, we can walk on a wire

    Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

    Can you sing at the same time in more than one key
    Duets by Rossini and waltzes by Strauss
    And can you (as cats do) begin with a 'C'
    That always triumphantly brings down the house?

    Jellicle cats are queen of the nights
    Singing at astronomical heights
    Handling pieces from the Messiah
    Hallelujah, angelical choir

    The mystical divinity of unashamed felinity
    Round the cathedral rang "Vivat,"
    Life to the Everlasting Cat!
    Feline, fearless, faithful and true
    To others who do - what

    Jellicles do and Jellicles can
    Jellicles can and Jellicles do
    Jellicle cats sing Jellicle chants
    Jellicles old and Jellicles new
    Jellicle song and Jellicle dance
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

    Pactical cats, Dramatical cats
    Pragmatical cats, Fanatical cats
    Oratorical cats, Delphicoracle cats
    Skeptical cats, Dispeptical cats
    Romantical cats, Penantical cats
    Critical cats, Parasitical cats
    Allegorical cats, Metaphorical cats
    Statistical cats and Mystical cats
    Political cats, Hypocritical cats
    Clerical cats, Hysterical cats
    Cynical cats, Rabbinical cats

    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
    Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

    There's a man over there with a look of surprise
    As much as to say Well now, how about that?
    Do I actually see with my own very eyes
    A man who's not heard of a Jellicle cat?
    What's a Jellicle cat? What's a Jellicle cat?
