Unknown: ohh...
Papa Mousekewitz: # Our family was traveling #
#Through the snow to Minsk #
Unknown: # Suddenly Papa #
Papa Mousekewitz: # Saw those huge paw prints #
#When I heard him screaming #
# I fainted dead away #
#And I woke up an orphan #
# Oy vey #
Unknown: But...
But... But...
Papa Mousekewitz: # But there are no cats in America #
Unknown: #And the streets are paved with cheese #
Papa Mousekewitz: #There are no cats in America #

Ma la cosa terribile que esiste in la patria mia.
If you think things were bad in Russia,
you should see things in my country.
#The times were hard in Sicily #
#We had no provolone #
#The Don, he was a tabby #
#With a taste for my brother Tony #
#When Mama went to plead for him #
#The Don said he would see her #
#We found her rosary on the ground #
Poor Mama mia.

# But there are no cats in America #
#And the streets are paved with cheese #
#There are no cats in America #
# So set your mind at ease #
Sure, that's sad,
but sadder still...
#When I was but a lad #
# I lost my true love fair #
#A calico #
# He caught us by surprise #
# In a flash of teeth and fur #
# Her tail was all he left of her #
