The Old Gumbie Cat

MUNKUSTRAP:
I have a gumbie cat in mind, her name is Jennyanydots
Her coat is of the tabby kind with tiger stripes and leopard spots
All day she sits beneath the stairs or on the steps or on the mat
She sits and sits and sits and sits —
and that's what makes a gumbie cat
That's what makes a gumbie cat

FEMALE CHORUS:
But...
When the day's hustle and bustle is done
Then the gumbie cat's work is but hardly begun
And when all the family's in bed and asleep
She tucks up her skirts to the basement to creep
She is deeply concerned with the ways of the mice

JENNYANYDOTS:
Their behavior's not good and their manners not nice

FEMALE CHORUS:
So when she has got them lined up on the matting
She teaches them

JENNYANYDOTS:
Music, crocheting and tatting

MUNKUSTRAP:
I have a gumbie cat in mind, her name is Jennyanydots
Her equal would be hard to find,
she likes the warm and sunny spots
All day she sits beside the hearth or on the bed or on my hat
She sits and sits and sits and sits —
and that's what makes a gumbie cat
That's what makes a gumbie cat

FEMALE CHORUS:
But...
When the day's hustle and bustle is done
Then the gumbie cat's work is but hardly begun
She thinks that the mice will not ever keep quiet;
she is sure it is due to

JENNYANYDOTS:
Irregular diet

FEMALE CHORUS:
And believing that

JENNYANYDOTS:
Nothing is done without trying

FEMALE CHORUS:
She sets right to work with her baking and frying
She makes them a mouse-cake of bread and dried peas

JENNYANYDOTS:
And a beautiful fry of lean bacon and cheese!

(DANCE)

MUNKUSTRAP:
I have a gumbie cat in mind, her name is Jennyanydots
The curtain cord she likes to wind and tie it into sailor knots
She sits upon the window sill or anything that's smooth and flat
She sits and sits and sits and sits —
and that's what makes a gumbie cat
That's what makes a gumbie cat

FEMALE CHORUS:
But...
When the day's hustle and bustle is done
Then the gumbie cat's work is but hardly begun
She thinks that the cockroaches just need employment
To prevent them from idle and wanton destroyment
So she's formed from that lot of disorderly louts
A troop of well disciplined helpful boy scouts

JENNYANYDOTS:
With a purpose in life and a good deed to do

FEMALE CHORUS:
And she's even created a beetles tattoo!

(DANCE)

FULL CHORUS:
So for old gumbie cats let us now give three cheers
On whom well-ordered households depend it appears
Three cheers, Three cheers, Three cheers!

For she's a jolly good fellow!

JENNYANYDOTS:
Thank you my dears!
