A# - F7/A# - A# The Poodle, the Pom, the Alsatian F - C7 - F - D# - And the Mastiff who walks on a chain. A#/D - F7 - A# And to those that are frisky and frolical, A# G#/A# Let my meaning be perfectly plain: A# - F7/A# - A# That my name it is little Tom Pollicle, A# - G# - A# and you'd better not do it again!" Fm And his braw Scottish cousins are snappers and biters And every dog-jack of them notable fighters And so they stepped out with their pipers in order Playing "When the Blue Bonnets Come Over The Border" A# A# (2 bars) G#/A# A# (2 bars) A# - G# Fm Fm Then the Pugs and the Poms held no longer aloof Fm C7/F - Fm But some from the balcony some from the roof joined into the din with a Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm - Until you could hear them all over the park Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm - Until you could hear them all over the park Fm Now when these bold hereos together assembled Fm C7/F - Fm - The traffic all stopped and the underground trembled Fm And some of the neighbours were so much afraid Fm C7/F - Fm - That they started to ring up the Fire Brigade! A#m - D# - G# - C# - When suddenly up from a small basement flat F# - C7 D#--G# Why who should stalk out but the Great Rumpus Cat!!!! His eyes were like fireballs fearfully blazing He gave a great yawn and his jaws were amazing And when he looked out through the bars of the area You never saw anything fiercer.... ...Or hairier Fm Fm And what with a glare of his eyes and his yawning C/F - F - The Pekes and the Pollicles quickly took warning Fm Fm He looked at the sky and he gave a great leap Fm C/F - Fm - And they every last one of them scattered like sheep! Fm (2 bars) Fm C/F - Fm - A#m - D# - G# - C# - And when the Police dog returned to his beat E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm There wasn't a single one left on the street! E/B---E/B - Fm/C All hail and all power to the Great Rumpus Cat!!!! Fm F#/F Jellicle cats and dogs all must D#/F Fm Pollicle dogs and cats all must C# F#7 Like undertakers come to dust (Macavity)
