That Kind Of Mouse

mp3 and pdf sheet music
I'm just a poor working mouse, taking life as it comes
C F Am G
Glad to find a peanut or a pile of crumbs
When a beautiful smell, in my nose made a fuss
F G Am C Am
Which I followed to a package half the size of a bus!
C F C C G
Really, I'm not hungry; help yourself; on the house.
Am Dm C Am
Honestly, it's nothing; I'm just that kind of mouse.
The label was large; even I understood
It said Hershey Bar With Almonds, okay, almonds are good;
So I gnawed it right open—the brown stuff was prime!
So delicious even almonds were a waste of my time.
Life is short, and it's hungry; it ends with a snap!
So I gnawed around the almonds, for the last lovely scrap.
I'll remember forever, that beautiful score--
I never had a chance at indigestion before
What would any mouse do, if such a thing came their way?
I ate twice my own bodyweight in chocolate that day.
Then I staggered back home, gave my neighbors a call;
Folks? I found a bunch of almonds. You can ha-ve them. All.
