Tails from the old West.


The Mousers Bar

Well the cutest saloon cat Ole' Tom ever saw
The cuterst one by far
Was lil Besty sSilver Paws
Worked The Mousers Bar
Mouse miners came to see her dance
They paid to hear her sing
That lil Betsy Silver Paws
Was ringalingaling
Ole' Tom he was a strappin' buck
Straight from Big Mouser Mines
Who came to town to try his luck
To snoot them catnip lines

Ringaling for Mouser Tom
Dance my Betsy dear
Take him back where he came from
Time to disappear

Lil Betsy with her silver paws
She worked The Mousers Bar
Tom came to see her sing and dance
He rode the catnip car

Dance away sweet Betsy dear
Sing for Tom a yowling tune
Such sweet mewsic to his ear
Underneath the summer moon

There never was a better time they say
To be had by any cowcat in that town
Than when Besty Silver Paws sang and danced
Upon the bar in her silky, furry gown

Ringaling for Mouser Tom
Dance my Betsy dear
Take him back where he came from
Time to disappear . . .
