All In A Mouse's Night Lyrics

Loving couple:
I can't see you but I know you're there
Got to get beside you cos it's really cold out here
Come up close to me you'll soon be warm
Hold me tightly like we're sheltering from a storm

Mouse:
Think I might go out for a stroll
Into the night, and out of his hole
Maybe find me a meal
Walking along this new shag pile
Presents a problem all the while
Nearly the door

Suddenly he bumps into wood, the door is closed
A voice from the bed, he'll be exposed
Which way to run, must make for the hole
But the light's been turned on, now he's blind as a mole in coal

Now I can see they're coming at me
They've blocked off my door, I haven't a chance in hell

Couple:
Come on baby let the poor thing go
I'm not sleeping with that thing around here, no
Alright then, I'll fetch a box from below
Guard him carefully, they're very quick you know

Mouse:
The door's been opened, my chance to escape
Must run out quick, better sorry that late
I'm out on the stairs
They won't catch me now, I've the run of the house now
I'll make it downstairs and into the breadbin
That would be nice

Suddenly he bumps into fur, that's very unwise
A cat is much quicker that men and their eyes
The chase that ensues can have only one end
Unless outside help steps in for our friend in need

But now the cat comes in for the kill
His paw is raised, soon blood will spill
Yes it will

Cat:
Hard luck mouse, this is the end of our road
The signpost says inside me, let me bear your heavy load
But it's not to be, that final pounce
Knocks a jar upon his head, and lays him out
But it's all in a mouse's night
To take on all those who would fight

Cat's story:
There I was with my back to the wall
Then comes this monster mouse, he's ten feet tall
With teeth and claws to match
It only took one blow
