The Cat And The Moon

The Cat And The Moon lyrics

The Cat And The Moon

[FRODO]
There's an inn of old renown
Where they brew a beer so brown
Moon came rolling down the hill
One Hevensday night to drink his fill.

[FRODO/MERRY]
On a three-stringed fiddle there
Played the Ostler's cat so fair
The hornéd Cow that night was seen
To dance a jig upon the green.

Called by the fiddle to the
Middle of the muddle where the
Cow with a caper sent the
Small dog squealing.
Moon in a fuddle went to
Huddle by the griddle but he
Slipped in a puddle and the
World went reeling.

Downsides went up- hey!
Outsides went wide.
As the fiddle
Played a twiddle
And the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
Upsides went west- hey!
Broadsides went boom.
With a twiddle on the fiddle
In the middle by the griddle
And the Moon slept till Sterrenday.

[FRODO]
Dish from off the dresser pranced,
Found a spoon and gaily danced.

[PIPPIN]
Horses neighed and champed their bits
For the bloodshot Moon had lost his wits.

[MERRY]
Well, cow jumped over, Dog barked wild,
Moon lay prone and sweetly smiled.

[SAM]
Ostler cried, "Play faster, Cat!

[ALL]
Because we all want to dance like that."

[FRODO/PIPPIN]
Gambol and totter till you're
Hotter than a hatter and you
Spin all akimbo
Like a windmill flailing.
Whirl with a clatter till you
Scatter every cotter and the
Strings start a-pinging as the
World goes sailing.

[ALL HOBBITS]
Downsides go up- hey!
Outsides go wide.
You can clatter
With your platter
But the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
Upsides go west- hey!
Broadsides go boom.
With a batter and a clatter
You can shatter every platter
But the Moon slept till Sterrenday.

In the middle by the griddle
And the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
Upsides go west- hey!
Broadsides go boom.
With a batter and a clatter
You can shatter every platter
But the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
