Dapper and Fudge Songs

A collection of ratty song parodies by our resident rock stars.

 

"Man! I feel like a ratty!"

[Sung to "Man! I feel like a woman!" by Shania Twain]

<A group of gorgeous female ratties stand poised with guitars. Dapper (wearing a top hat) swaggers up to the microphone>

I'm going out tonight -- I'm feelin' alright
Gonna let it all hang out
Wanna make some strife -- perhaps get me a wife
Yeah I wanna squeak and flout

No inhibitions -- make no conditions
Get a little out of line
I aint gonna act tame-pet-edly correct
I only wanna have a good time

The best thing about being a ratty
Is the prerogative to have a little fun

Go totally crazy -- no time to be lazy
Pounce on Fudge, hide under the rug
Woah oh oh oh
Sneak and tease, yeah -- stash all the peas, yeah
Get in Mum's hair -- climb where I dare
Woah oh oh oh
I wanna be free to feel the way I feel...
Man!  I feel like a ratty!

<female back-ups>  Do do do do do do
<dancing>

The cage needs a break -- tonight we're gonna take
The chance to get out on the town
We need lots to drink -- we're gonna make a stink
We're gonna let our balls hang down

The best thing about being a ratty
Is the prerogative to pee on everything

Leave a proud scent trail -- paint with my own tail
On Dad's shirt, on Mum's skirt
Woah oh oh oh
On the TV remote, yeah -- where others will note, yeah
Pee on the chair -- pee where I dare
Woah oh oh oh
I wanna be free to feel the way I feel...
Man!  I feel like a ratty!

<female back-ups>  Do do do do do do
<dancing>

<music builds up to the finale>

The best thing about being a ratty
Is the prerogative to have a little chew

Enjoy the great caper -- shred toilet paper
Chew mouse cords, floorboards
Woah oh oh oh
Carpet and blocks, yeah -- feet in their socks, yeah
Gnaw on the chair -- gnaw what I dare
Woah oh oh oh
I wanna be free to feel the way I feel...
Man!  I feel like a ratty!

<female back-ups>  Do do do do do do
<dancing>

I get totally crazy
Can you feel it
Come and join in the mischief
Man! I feel like a ratty!

<Dapper bows, tosses the top hat and scurries off in pursuit of the gorgeous female back-up singers>

"I will survive"

[Sung to "I will survive" by Dino Fekaris and Freddie Perren]

Well at first I was afraid, I was petrified
She picked me out from the pet shop, I couldn't even hide
But then I spent so many nights with her just cuddling me near
And things grew clear, I learned that she was really dear

And now she's back, from her workplace
She just walked in to find me here, a look of glee upon my face
I nearly leaped out of my cage, I could hardly contain my joy
I hadn't thought for just one second she could be my favourite toy

Oh yes!  Open cage door!
Yeah I'm just so wildly happy, I'm a pet shop rat no more
She's the one who rescued me from such uncertain fate
How can I thank her?  How can I tell her she is great?

Oh I, I will survive
Yeah, as long as I've got my mum's love I'll know I'll be alive
In her soft lap I will sleep, down her warm shirt I will leap
I will survive, I will survive, Yeah, yeah

Well, it took all the strength I had just to try trusting her
In a strange cage with new toys, as nice as they were
And I spend, oh so many nights, just cowering inside
I used to hide... now on her shoulders I will ride

And then she'll treat me with a yogurt drop
I'm no longer a snake food rat in that terrible pet shop
Now I've got someone who loves me for just being a ratty
So I'm bruxing up a storm for the one who rescued me

Oh yes!  Her, I adore!
Yeah I'm just so wildly happy, I'm a pet shop rat no more
How can I tell her I love her more than I ever planned?
Scent mark her hand? Yeah!  I'll make her understand.

Oh yes I, I will survive
As long as I've got my mum's love I know I'll be alive
Treats and out time every day, and a cagemate with to play
I will survive, I will survive, Yeah! Yeah!

"Crazy little rat called Fudge"

[Sung to "Crazy little thing called love" by Queen]

<Dap, wearing a tight leotard and sporting a fetching new mustache, grabs the microphone stand and sings>

Well this rat called Fudge, I just can't handle him
This rat called Fudge, I can't understand him
He aint like me
Crazy little rat called Fudge

This rat (this rat)
Called Fudge (called Fudge)
He plays (like a ratty)
In our cage all night
He leaps (woo woo)
He squeaks (woo woo)
He curls up with me like a warm pillow
I kinda like him
Crazy little rat called Fudge

There goes my cagemate
He knows he is alpha rat
He grooms my belly
He makes me squeak like a ratlet
Then he leaves me in a mad, mad mood

But, I gotta be cool, relax, get hip
Concede that I am the beta, no but
And take a long gnaw on my macca nut
Realise I love him
Crazy little rat called Fudge

This rat called Fudge, I just can't handle him
This rat called Fudge, I can't live without him
He's just so happy (ready Dappy)
Crazy little rat called Fudge

"Pet ratty acceptance"

[Sung to "The Rainbow connection" by Paul Williams and Ken Ascher that Kermit The Frog sings in the Muppet Movie]

<Fudge lazes contentedly in his favourite hammock, head leaning ponderously on a macadamia nut.  In a tiny little nervous voice he starts to sing>

Why is it so many people hate ratties?
And why don't they want us to live?
Ratties are dirty, plague ridden vermin
And ratties have nothing to give.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, pet ratty acceptance
My owner, my cagemate and me.

Who said that pets should be dogs, cats or fishes?
Or parrots or <shudder> reptiles?
Someone who's not known the love of a rodent
Or heard of their most charming wiles.
What's so amazing that makes one choose ratties?
And why don't more pet people see?
Someday we'll find it, pet ratty acceptance
My owner, my cagemate and me.

All of us under the spell
we know that it has to be Rattus...

Have you been half asleep and have you heard bruxing?
My cagemate does this endlessly.
Is this the sweet sound that calls to rat lovers?
The voice of contentment and glee
If others could hear this would it open their minds?
Would they perhaps choose a ratty?
Someday we'll find it, pet ratty acceptance
Our owners, all ratties and me.

La la la la la la laaaa
La la la la la la laaaaaa...

<Fudge drops off to sleep with a dreamy expression on his furry little face>

"Addicted to rats"

[Sung to "Addicted to Love" by Robert Palmer]

<Several gorgeous ratgirls stand poised with guitars.  Dapper, handsome in a dark suit, steps up to the microphone>

At the pet shop, for rat supplies
A new litter catches your eyes
Your will is strong, your heart won't break
Just a peek is all you'll take

You can't adopt <no oh> you've got no room
All your friends think you're a loon
Already got a lot to feed
Another rat, you do not need

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to new rats, oh yeah!
It's closer to the truth to say you can't resist the brats, you know you're
Gonna have to face it you're addicted to rats.

You head over to the tank stand
A ratlet leaps to sniff your hand
Your heart beats in double time
A ratty kiss, and you'll be mine... a one track mind

You can't be saved
Another ratty is all you crave
If there's new rats in the store
You'll take 2 or 3 or 4...

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to new rats, oh yeah!
It's closer to the truth to say you can't resist the brats, you know you're
Gonna have to face it you're addicted to rats.

Might was well face it you're addicted to rats.
Might was well face it you're addicted to rats.
Might was well face it you're addicted to rats.
Might was well face it you're addicted to rats.

"Like a ratlet"

[Sung to "Like a virgin" by Madonna]

<Dapper dances in a gondola wearing lots of bangles and mesh clothes, with furry belly showing>

I made it out the locked cage door
Leaped down with all my might
Didn't know how big the world was
'til I escaped that night

I could run, have some fun
Secretly, I could gnaw and pee
Yeah, it made me feel
Yeah, it made me feel
So playful and free

Like a ratlet <squeak!>
Exploring for the very first time
Like a ra a a atlet
So much to see, but, not much time

I head straight for the kitchen where
Mum's yogurt drop stash stands
Reach the jar, but stare forlornly
at my thumbless hands. <doh!> <doh!>

Behind the door, cords to gnaw
Shred the rug on the lounge room floor
Stash the tv remote
Somewhere they'll never ever note
So it's mine evermore

<chorus>

Wander into the bedroom next
A pile of clothes I find
Snuggle in an old t-shirt
A nap I wouldn't mind

While I'm there, do my share
Make mum proud of her underwear
Yeah, some new holes I'll make
And the elastic I'll take
Scent mark them to show I care.

<chorus>

Better get back to the cage soon
Mum will awake at dawn
Been planning this escapade
ever since I was born

I just climb up here now, Ummm... how?
For this I didn't allow
I can't reach the cage from here
What will Mum say when she finds me near?
I'm in big trouble now.

Like a ratlet <squeak!>
Exploring for the very first time
Like a ra a a atlet
So much to see, but, not much time
Ooh, ooh, like a ratlet
Feels so good outside... in the dark house,
in the open, with nothing to hide.
Ooh, ooh, like a ratlet

Thank you, thank you, I love you all! Especially you, you cute little hooded ratgirl in the second row <ravishing smile>

"Grotto girls"

[Sung to "California girls" by the Beach Boys]

<Dapper, just returned from his first world tour and wearing a loud hawaiian shirt saunters up to the microphone and sings>

Well dumbo girls are hip
I really dig those ears so low
And the hairless does without their clothes
They knock me out more than you know

Standard coated babes
They really make me feel alright
And the sweet rex girls with their fur of curls
They keep their cagemates warm at night

I wish they all could be Grotto ratties
I wish they all could be Grotto ratties
I wish they all could be Grotto rats with me.

The berkshire girls are cute
I really dig those bellies white
And the hooded, capped and even barebacked
Oooh, are they a sight!

Girls with dark masked faces
Seem just so mysterious
And the sexy babes with their noses blazed
Oh, I could make such a fuss!

<chorus>

Yeah, agouti girls are hot
I really love their wild rat style
And the Siamese does with their darker nose
Man! I just can't help but smile

Self rats are so sweet
Their bold colours are far from plain
Give me a Sprague-Dawley PEW, a black, beige or a blue
A cinnamon or champagne

There's just so many cute rat girls
I don't prefer one type or brand
I'd dig a mis-marked variegated odd eyed runt
With a yogurt drop in her hand

I've been all around this great big world
And I've seen all kinds of girls
Yeah, but I wish I could take them all home with me
Back to the greatest cage in the world

<chorus>

"My favourite things"

[Sung to "My favourite things" from The Sound of Music by Rodgers and Hammerstein ]

<Dapper dances around gleefully and in a sweet happy voice sings>

Cream cheese on fingers and Cheerio crunching
Warm winter hammocks and yogurt drop munching
Pinata pea packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things

Grooming the Fudge rat and scratching my itches
Sleeping all day, getting head rubs and scritches
The dinner time food bowl and all that it brings
These are a few of my favourite things

When Myco bites, when the meds sting
When I'm feeling sad
My mum gives me some of my favourite things
and then I don't feel so bad

Stashing of phone bills and gnawing on cables
Shredding new t-shirts and chewing off labels
Climbing on Mum's hand to pee on her rings
These are a few of my favourite things

Pouncing on cagemates and impromptu napping
Biting of socked toes and soya milk lapping
Play time out of the cage to spread my wings
These are a few of my favourite things

When the Fudge steals my macca nut
When I'm feeling sad
My mum gives me some of my favourite things
and then I don't feeeeeeeeeeel soooo baaaaaaaaaaaad...

<Dapper dances and spins around the stage, grabbing and eating all the treats his adoring female fans have flung at him>

"Ratty horror picture show"

[Sung to "The Time Warp" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show]

This is a song all about what goes through your ratties minds when they're trying to avoid going home to the cage after out time i.e.. doing a "Rat Warp" disappearing act.

<Dapper, wearing fishnets, hot pants and way too much make-up steps up to the microphone>

It's them calling
Time is fleeting
They're trying to nab our hide
But we're much smarter
<Fudge> And we're smaller and faster
I've got to stay outside

I remember doing the Rat Warp
Loving those moments when
I'd successfully slip free
And they would be fuming...
Let's do the Rat Warp again

<Tristan> It's just a jump to the left
<Ratsylvanians> And then a step to the right
<Tristan>  Flick your tail through their hands
<Ratsylvanians> And then run for your life
But its the chattering teeth
That really drives them insane
Let's do the Rat Warp again

<Fudge>
It's so easy
To hide under the TV
So they can't see me
No, not at all
I've a good stash of food there
That'll last me forever
Well secluded, I see all

<Dapper>
With a simple technique swap
They bring out a yogurt drop
And this smell, you simply can't resist
You're spaced out on sensation
Next thing you're home in your cage again!

Let's do the Rat Warp again
Let's do the Rat Warp again

<Celeste>
Well I was sneaking 'round the house
Just a having some fun
When that Emily girl she caught me on the run
She picked me up, she took me by surprise
She had a sunflower seed and a smile so wide
She scritched my ears and I bruxed her name
Time meant nothing, never would again

Let's do the Rat Warp again
Let's do the Rat Warp again

<Tristan>  It's just a jump to the left
<Ratsylvanians>  And then a step to the right
<Tristan>  Flick your tail through their hands
<Ratsylvanians>  And then run for your life
But its the chattering teeth
That really drives them insane
Let's do the Rat Warp again
Let's do the Rat Warp again

"Dinner nights"

[Sung to "Summer nights" from the musical Grease]

Dinner lovin' had me a blast
Dinner munchin' happened so fast
I got a bowl from Mum just for me
Full of food, sweet as can be
Breakfast tray driftin' away to uh-oh those dinner nights

<wella wella wella>
Tell me more, tell me more, did you get many peas?
Tell me more, tell me more, did you have to say please?

She came to me, she gave me the food
I bruxed at her in a ravenous mood
Delicious smells wafted up my nose
I dove right in, because that's how it goes
Dinner fun, something's begun, yeah uh-oh those dinner nights

<wella wella wella>
Tell me more, tell me more, was it that tofu sludge?
Tell me more, tell me more, did you share some with Fudge?

Grabbed a green pea, discarded the shell
Sweet potato and pumpkin as well
Dug down deep to find what was nice
Chickpeas, corn, chicken and rice
Dinner fling, I'll eat anything on uh-oh those dinner nights

<wella wella wella>
Tell me more, tell me more, was it creamed corn and ham?
Tell me more, tell me more, did you stash all you can?

Dragged the pasta to my nest box
Stashed the lentils in somebody's socks
Threw the carrot in the litter tray
Flung the apple and lab blocks away
Hate the taste, but I'll keep just in case, on uh-oh those dinner nights

<wella wella wella>
Tell me more, tell me more, did you over-exert?
Tell me more, tell me more, was there ice cream dessert?

The bowl got empty, that's where it ends
So I crawled into a hammock with friends
There I lazed, my belly in bliss
I wonder when breakfast time is...

Breakfast tray, and treats in the day
But uh-oh those dinner niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiights!!!!

"Modern R. norvegicus"

[Sung to "Modern Major General" from the musical "The Pirates of Penzance" by Gilbert and Sullivan]

<Dapper, sharp in an immaculate naval uniform, stands at attention and sings pompously>

I am the very model of a modern R. norvegicus
I'm small and cute and sweet and furry, clever, smart and devious
I'm not well known for discipline or highly skilled at being tame
But happily come running for treats when my owners call my name.

I live on peas and yogurt drops and all the other foods I crave
I have my owners wrapped around my little finger like a slave
I'm always getting cuddled, massaged, played with, cooed at, scritched and kissed
Because I'm just too cute and charming for my owners to resist

<Chorus ratties>
Because he's just too cute and charming for his owners to resist.

I have a nest box to sleep in to wile away the bright of day
A hammock, ladders, ropes and tubes and other stuff for me to play
And yet I'm always finding new ways to escape this cage of fun
So that I can explore the outside world and freely sneak and run.

I gnaw on walls and furniture and shred the carpet 'til it's gone
I stash anything not tied down that I can get my paws upon.
I pee on all the furniture, on bedspreads, laps and where I lurk
Even though my owners don't appreciate my handiwork

<Chorus ratties>
Even though his owners don't appreciate his handiwork.

I know the difference between treats and food laced with the drug Baytril
And when my owners bath me I know how to squeak and not stay still
I'm really good at hiding out when it's time to go home instead
Especially when my owners are tired and want to go to bed.

I groom all day and night to keep my coat so shiny, thick and clean
I hone my claws to needlepoint so I can scale my owners skin
I have to constantly groom eyebrow, nose, teeth, callouses and ear
'Cos when it comes to cleanliness, my owners just have no idea.

<Chorus ratties>
'Cos when it comes to cleanliness, his owners just have no idea.

I may not know how to meow, or chase the cars along the street
Or swim around a bowl, or fly up in the air and squawk and tweet
But still in matters cute and sweet and clever, smart and devious
I am the very model of a modern R. norvegicus

<Chorus ratties>
But still in matters cute and sweet and clever, smart and devious
He is the very model of a modern R. norvegicus.

<Dapper waddles off humming to himself>

"Pretty brat (for a pet rat)"

[Sung to "Pretty fly (for a white guy)" by The Offspring]

<Dapper, always wanting to be a wild rat, dressed in street gear and sings about himself in a tough voice>

You know it's kinda hard just to be a rat today
Our subject isn't wild, but he fakes it anyway
He may not have street cred, and he may not have style
But everything he lacks, well he makes up in denial

So don't hold back with the wild rat pack
You know they're really gonna dig your hood of black
Gotta act real tough, and squeak enough
For you know their way, yeah, for you know their way
But when they bite and hiss, don't get sulky and pissed
You know that you can always brag to the ratlist
The world needs pet ratties
So <hey><hey> be a pet ratty!

He needs some cool treats, but not any will suffice
He ate all the yog drops, so he brought baytril and lice
Now waddling down the alley he sees wild rats as he pass
But if he looks twice they're gonna kick his furry ass

So don't hold back, with the wild rat pack
You know they're really gonna dig your hood of black
Gotta act real tough, and squeak enough
For you know their way, yeah, for you know their way
But when they bite and hiss, don't get sulky and pissed
You know that you can always brag to the ratlist
The world needs pet ratties
So <hey><hey> be a pet ratty!!

Well he's getting a new look now, he's getting fur dyed
He asked for agouti, but they only did one side
Friends say he's trying too hard, and he's had no luck
But in his own mind, he's the, he's the wildest buck

<Jane's wild girls flaunt themselves and sing>
Give it to me, ratty!!  <uhuh><uhuh>
Give it to me, ratty!!  <uhuh><uhuh>
Give it to me, ratty!!  <uhuh><uhuh>

And all the wild girls say I'm pretty brat (for a pet rat)

So don't hold back, with the wild rat pack
You know they're really gonna dig your hood of black
Gotta act real tough, and squeak enough
For you know their way, yeah, for you know their way
But when they bite and hiss, don't get sulky and pissed
You know that you can always brag to the ratlist
The world needs pet ratties
So <hey><hey> be a pet ratty!!

<Dapper:  I'm a wild rat, I'm a big mean wild rat>
<Fudge:  Oh give it up, Dap!  Get your fat, soft, lazy pet rat butt back into the hammock, I need a pillow and a groom>

"Calamity Dap" - the musical

[Sung to songs from the classic musical "Calamity Jane" starring Doris Day]

<The opening scene sees Dapper, dressed in western garb, standing up on his hammock in excitement>

"Treat give-away"
[Sung to "The Deadwood Stage (Whip Crack Away)"]

Oh, treat time's here and mum's heading on over to play
Us rats are begging and boggling and fooffing away
Wonderful fun! ... Best time of the day!
Treat give-away! Treat give-away! Treat Give-away!

There's sunflower seeds or grapes or yogurt drops sweet
Blueberries or nuts or other good things to eat
Wonder what Mum... will offer today
Treat give-away! Treat give-away! Treat Give-away!

Oh what fun!  Here comes Mum!  To a bruxy chorus
She's got something for us every week....
<ratlets> Squeak!

Oh, treat time's here and we're pushing and shoving with glee
Our noses are jammed though the bars expectantly
Wonderful times.... are here to stay!
Treat give-away! Treat give-away! Treat Give-away!

<Dap wanders down into his cage and dances and sings around Nimbus and Stat!>

"A very good friend of mine"
[Sung to "A very good friend of mine"]

Introducing blue mink Nimbus...
A rat who always wants to lick and groom and trim us
He is so blatantly nosey, but he's cuter than a posy
And no other rat photographs so divine
And I'm pleased to say he's a very good friend of mine!

Here's the one that they call Statty...
He's just a teeny weeny tiny little ratty
But he fights like a ninja master, and there's no rat who is faster
Than this cheerful cinnamon ratlet so fine
And I'm pleased to say he's a very good friend of mine!

<Dap sighs at the state of his usually neat cage now the ratlets have taken over>

"A ratty's touch"
[Sung to "A woman's touch"]

A ratty's touch.... a ratty's touch...
The shaking of an earthquake couldn't do as much
He's an artist, he's got style
And he only takes awhile

A ratty's touch... can create hell...
The kind of mass destruction that he does so well
With his teeth as his own tools
He will follow no ones rules

<ratlets>
With a pee pee here and a pee pee there
He will stink up well the nest box
With a chew chew here and a chew chew there
He will ventilate the hammocks

A ratty's touch... a ratty's touch...
He'll marinate in his pee so he smells like such
With some help from his rat pals
He will shred the paper towels

A ratty's touch... is wondrous
The kind of thoughtful art that is done just for us
He will tip the water bowl
And he'll fling the lab blocks whole.

<ratlets>
With a gnaw gnaw here and a gnaw gnaw there
In every place he's heading
With a poop poop here and a poop poop there
He will stink up all the bedding

<Dap throws his arms out to encompass the whole cage>
With all these efforts, suddenly, the cage just looks like new!
And what then does your owner say to you?
<aghast Mum> What did you DO?????!!!

It makes you blink, to stop and think...
A ratty's wry cleverness can accomplish so darned much...
So!  Never underestimate a ratty's touch!
<ratlets>  No! Never underestimate a ratty's touch!!

<Dap, tired from all the dancing, lazes in his hammock and
dreams of being let out of the cage to free range>

"Foam Mines of the Rat Room"
[Sung to "Black Hills of Dakota"]

Take me back to the foam mines, the foam mines of the rat room
To the beautiful warm fuzzy mattress that I love
Let me roam in the foam mines, the foam mines of the rat room
Where the foam piles so high that they reach the bed above

And when I get that joyful feeling, as I'm ripping up the foam
I hear the sighs from my frustrated Mum urging me along...
Oh, take me back to the foam mines, the foam mines of the rat room
To the pits where I lay to laze the day away...

<Dapper smiles at the energetic antics of the ratlets as they leap around him and then leans his head dreamily on his hammock>

"Lonely Rat"
[Sung to "Secret Love"]

Once I had a special rat
That lived within my cage with me
All too soon my sweet FudgeRat
Left for the Rainbow to be free

So Mum got some ratlets new
The way rat lovers often do
At first I groomed their bellies good
But now I really love these two

<Dap leaps up and stands tall on his hammock>
Now I'm bruxing from the hammock tops
Even shared my stash of yogurt drops
At last new friends that I adore
Now this DapperRat's not lonely anymore.

<curtain closes and reopens again to raucous cheering>
Dapper bows and graciously accepts the thrown yogurt drops and sunflower seeds.  He beckons to his two young co-stars who join him on the stage, paws together for one last bow.

"Neutering rhapsody"

[Sung to "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen]

<Nimbus and Statty were out playing around in their free range area the other night.  They were leaping and pouncing and wrestling and power grooming and squeaking all over the place.  I jokingly said to them "Quit all the fighting or I'll neuter you both!".  But I think Nimbus took me seriously as I found him confiding his fears to Uncle Dap the other day.... with this song...>

Is this the real life or is this just fantasy?
Caught in my hormones, no escape from reality
I'm at that age, look up to the cage and see
I'm just a teen rat, I need no sympathy
Cos I'm just over crazed, over riled, little mad, little wild
Don't take me to the vet rooms, torpedoes really matter to me.... to me...

Dapper.... I just mugged the Stat!
Flipped him over while he freaked
Groomed his belly 'til he squeaked
Dapper... my balls have just got hung
And now they're gonna take them all away...

Dapper.... ooooh ooh ooh oooooh
Didn't mean to beat up Stat
If my balls aren't back again this time tomorrow
Carry on... carry on... as if it doesn't really matter...

It's too late... been caught by Mum
Saw me nip at Statty's side and then groom his furry hide
Goodbye furry cushions, it's time to go
Gotta leave this rat's behind and face the truth
Dapper.... ooooh ooh ooh oooooh
I don't wanna fight... I sometimes wish that I'd have been born a girl...

<Statty>  I see a little silhouetto of a rat
It's the Nim!  It's the Nim!  And he's coming to get me!
Puffed fur and sidling very very frightening.... <squeak!>
Nimbus ratty (Nimbus ratty) Nimbus ratty  (Nimbus ratty)
Nimbus ratty let me go!  You big ratso o o o o o!!

<Statty> I'm just a little rat from a little rattery
<ratlist rats> He's just a little rat, how much trouble can he be?
<ratlist rats> Spare him his life from this power groomery!
<Statty> Easy come easy go will you let me go?
<Nim> I'm alpha!  No!  I will not let you go!
<Ratlist rats> Let him go!
<Nim>  I'm alpha! No!  I will not let you go!
<ratlist rats> Let him go!
<Nim> Will not let you go... no! no! no! no! no! no! NO!
<Statty> Nimbus ratty Nimbus ratty Nimbus ratty let me go!
Your power grooms are just a little strong for me... for me... for me!!

<a distraught Nimbus>
Do you think they will take me to the vet's today?
Do you think they will take my paint rollers away?
Oh Dapper!... can't do this to me Dapper!
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right out of here

Torpedoes really matter, anyone can see
Torpedoes really matter (torpedoes really matter)
My torpedoes really matter to me...
Don't take me to the vet rooms...

Nimbus curls up in the hammock with Uncle Dap and sobs while Dap reassures him that Mum would never do such a thing to him!
<Dap> Look Nimmy... I've still got mine! <proudly displaying his enormous furry cushions>
<Nim> Thanks Uncle Dap... can I go and pounce on Statty again now?
