Magical Mister MistoffoleesSONG: From "Cats": the musical. Written by T.S. Elliot and Composed by Andrew Llyod Webber.
You ought to ask Mr. Mistoffolees! The original conjuring cat-- (There can be no doubt about that!) Please listen to me and don't scoff; All his Inventions are off his own bat There's no such cat in the metropolis He holds all the patent monopolies For performing surprising illusions And creating eccentric confusions! The greatest magicians have something to learn From Mister Mistoffolees' conjuring turn And we all say, Oh! Well I never! Was there ever A cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffolees He is quiet, he is small, he is black From the ears to the tip of his tail He can creep through the tiniest crack He can walk on the narrowest rail He can pick any card from a pack He is equally cunning with dice He is always deceiving you into believing That he's only hunting for mice He can play any trick with a cork Or a spoon and a bit of fish paste If you look for a knife or a fork And you think it is merely misplaced You have seen it one moment and then it's gone But you find it next week lying on the lawn!

should her stay be brief,
I've searched this whole world over in search of
