†††††††††††††††††††††† A mouseís tale, or is it tail?


Iím a little furry creature and I live at Bullpot Farm

Theyíre really kind and generous and mean us no real harm

Except for ĎRay the Catcherí, he sets out loads of traps

But others throw them out the door, stupidity perhaps


Iím a little furry creature and they feed us reet well here

My brothers, sisters, cousins are all of great good cheer

Last week they left us Cous Cous and even Cheerios

But Ray had just filled all the traps to keep us on our toes


Iím a little furry creature, I love that polystyrene

I found a new Soreen Malt Loaf hidden in between

Some Tesco Fruit and Nut Muesli and Classic stuff as well

Iím putting on a bit of weight, I say, can you tell


Iím a little furry creature Iíve eaten through a freezer

To get the lovely Bacon that was left there by some geezer

Iím partial to a pepper or some mouldy old green mushrooms

But the shadow of ĎRay the Catcherí, always over us it looms


Iím a little furry creature electric cables are my favourite

Iíll drag it back to my little den so that I can savour it

It causes havoc when Iím done with sparks and fires and stuff

But what the hell is what I say, I just canít chew enough


Iím a little furry creature and itís warm and cosy here

And itís getting chilly now as itís the closing of the year

So keep feeding me that real good food, so Iím nice and fat

And very soon youíll hear the sound of great big juicy Rats
