NARRATOR
Once upon a time there was a very old man
and a very old woman. They lived in a nice
clean house which had flowers all around it,
except where the door was. But they couldn't
be happy because they were so very lonely.

"If we only had a cat!" sighed the very old woman.

OLD WOMAN
(Singing)
IF WE ONLY HAD A CAT,
WE'D BE HAPPY.
SOMETHING FURRY,
WARM AND PURRY,
FOR A LAP.
WE'D BE HAPPY.

EARS AND WHISKERS ROUND THE HOUSE,
PAWS AND CLAWS TO CATCH A MOUSE

WE'D BE HAPPY
AND NOT LONELY
IF WE ONLY
HAD A CAT.

OLD MAN
(Speaking)
A cat?

OLD WOMAN
(Speaking)
Yes, a sweet little fluffy cat.
(Singing)
IF WE ONLY HAD A CAT
SWEET AND FLUFFY
JUST ONE PRETTY
LITTLE KITTY
IS ENOUGH
SWEET AND FLUFFY

OLD MAN
(Now in the spirit of the idea, singing)
SWISHY TAIL TO TWIST AND JUMP
FEED IT MILK UNTIL IT'S PLUMP

OLD WOMAN
WE'D BE HAPPY
AND NOT LONELY

OLD MAN
I WOULD SURELY WELCOME THAT

OLD WOMAN and OLD MAN
WE'D BE HAPPY
AND NOT LONELY
IF WE ONLY
HAD A CAT.
