Mungojerrie And Rumpleteazer

The greatest magicians have something to learn

From Mr. Mistoffolees conjuring turn



Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer were a notorious couple of cats

As knockabout clowns, quick change comedians

Tight-rope walkers and acrobats

They had an extensive reputation

Made their home in Victoria Grove

That was merely their center of operation

For they were incurable given to rove



If the area window was found ajar

And the basement looked like a field of war

If a tile or two came loose on the roof

Which presently ceased to be waterproof

If the drawers were pulled out from bedroom chests

And you couldn't find one of your winter vests

Or after supper one of the girls

Suddenly missed her Woolworth pearls



Then the family would say, "It's that horrible cat!

It was Mungojerrie or Rumpleteazer!"

And most of the time they left it at that



Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer had an unusual gift of gab

They were highly efficient cat burgulars

As well and remarkably smart at a smash and grab

They made their home in Victoria Grove

They had no regular occupation

They were plausible fellows who liked to engage

A friendly policeman in conversation



When the family assembled for Sunday dinner

Their minds made up that they wouldn't get thinner on

Argentine joint, potatoes and greens

Then the cook would appear from behind the scenes

And say in a voice that was broken with sorrow

"I'm afraid you must wait and have dinner tomorrow

The joint has gone from the oven like that!"



Then the family would say, "It's that horrible cat!

It was Mungojerrie or Rumpleteazer!"

And most of the time they left it at that



Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer had a wonderful way-a
