PHENOMENAL CAT

 (FLUTE PLAYS OVER:) C    Bb    F       D  G D  G

   D          G    D          D       G    D
A long, long time ago, in a land of idiot boys
       G         D       F         C
There lived the cat, a phenomenal cat
     Bb                  F
Who loved to wallow all day

No one bothered him as he sat, content in his tree
He just lived to eat cos it kept him fat
And that's how he wanted to stay

CHORUS #1:
 Dm                    A            C                 
F
Though he was big and fat, all the world was good to him
         Dm                A           C            Fsus4
And he pointed out on the map all the places he had been
 Dm      Dm/G    Dm/F Dm/E      
    Dm/C      Dm/Bb   A
Cowes, Sardinia, Katmandu, The Scilly Isles and Sahara, too

Fum, fum, diddle-um di
La la la la, la-la la la
La la la la, la-la la la la
La la la la-la la la

CHORUS #2:
Once when he was thin, he had flown to old Hong Kong
And had learned the secret of life, and the sea and the sky beyond
So he gave up his diet and sat in a tree
And ate himself through eternity

Fum, fum, diddle-um di
La la la la la-la la la
La la la la, la-la la la la
La la la la-la la la
Fum, fum, diddle-um di
Fum, fum, diddle-um di

Of course you really need a flute to make it recognizable.
