Ding Dong Dell

VERSE 1:

Well, the cat’s tail is twitchin’

And my nose is itchin’

Must be somebody’s thinkin’ ‘bout me

It better not be him

‘Cause I ain’t lettin’ him back in

Finally got that rat out my kitchen

 

CHORUS:

Ding, dong, dell

Rat’s in the well

He danced on the ledge

And down he fell

Climbed the rope, got away

But there’s always a piper to pay

So the bell will ring again one day

Ding, dong, dell

Ding, dong, dell

 

VERSE 2:

For months he scurried around

Left his tracks all over town

Guess that rat didn’t think I could see

But I’m smarter than that

I just built a better mousetrap

And watched him squirm when the cage came down

 

CHORUS:

Ding, dong, dell

Rat’s in the well

He danced on the ledge

And down he fell

Climbed the rope, got away

But there’s always a piper to pay

So the bell will ring again one day

Ding, dong, dell

Ding, dong, dell

 

VERSE 3:

Let him go once he was caught

He was off like a shot

Scampered quick like the coward he was

No, I haven’t tried to find him

He’s found a new kitchen to hide in

Now my cat’s missin’ him, but I’m not

 

CHORUS:

Ding, dong, dell

Rat’s in the well

He danced on the ledge

And down he fell

Climbed the rope, got away

But there’s always a piper to pay

So the bell will ring again one day

Ding, dong, dell

Ding, dong, dell

 

BRIDGE:

Lyin’ and cheatin’

Connivin’ and creepin’

I’m glad to be sleepin’ alone

He’s filthy and greasy

Nasty and cheesy

I’m much better off on my own

 

CHORUS:

Ding, dong, dell

Rat’s in the well

He danced on the ledge

And down he fell

Climbed the rope, got away

There’s always a piper to pay

So the bell will ring again one day

Ding, dong, dell

Ding, dong, dell

Just like a Liberty Bell

Ding, dong, dell
