My Cat is a Jellicle Cat!

Are you blind when you're born? Can you see in the dark?
Can you look at a king? Would you sit on his throne?
Can you say of your bite it's worse than your bark?
Are you cock of the walk when you're walking alone?
When you fall on your head, do you land on your feet?
Are you tense when you sense there's a storm in the air?
Do you know how to go to the Heaviside Layer?
Are you mean like a lince?
If you are you're a Jellicle cat!
Because, Jellicles are and Jellicles do
Jellicles do and Jellicles would
Jellicles would and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do!
We can dive throw the air like a flying trapeze!
We can turn double somersaults, bounce on a tire!
We can run up the wall, we can swing through the trees!
We can balance on bars, we can walk on a wire!
The mystical divinity of unashamed felinity
Round the cathedral rang "Vivat!"
Life to the everlasting cat!
Feline, fearless, faithful and true
To others who do what
Jellicles do and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicle cats sing Jellicle chants
Jellicles old and Jellicles new
Jellicle song and Jellicle dance!
Practical cats, dramatical cats
Pragmatical cats, fanatical cats
Oratorical cats, delphioracle cats
Skeptical cats, dispeptical cats
Romantical cats, pedantial cats
Statistical cats and mystical cats
Political cats, hypocritical cats
Clerical cats, hysterical cats
Cynical cats, rabbinical cats...
