Lyrics

oringinal version

Grasping: My colleagues gather round please

Since you and I all know

That if our mice keep working

Our profit's sure to grow!

O’Bloat: I really like to see them sweat

It makes me calm and cool

TOPLOFTY: And while they're grateful for the pay

We're thankful they're poor

ALL: Friends of the working mouse!

Grasping: We're such a happy family

Our workers are the best!

O’Bloat: And while they put in overtime

We'll just take a little rest!

TOPLOFTY: We've got it all together now

We're in for the long haul

Grasping So a toast to them, let's give a cheer

While they are slaving for us all

ALL: Friends of the working mouse!

Friends of the working mouse!

O’Bloat: Oh yeah we're like friends a you workin' mices and stuff

Grasping: We know They want to make a show

Of their aspirations So come on We can help, you know

Meet their expectations

ALL: Hey ho The only limit is our imaginations

Heave ho It's off to work they go It's their true salvation Maybe...

O’Bloat: We really ought to see them here each and every day

Grasping: So even when they need time off we do insist they stay

TOPLOFTY: With their noses to the grindstone since they want to keep their jobs  

O’Bloat: We keep 'em workin sharp, our mice, while we just act like slobs

Grasping: Yes we will rightly steer them on our short and steady course!

TOPLOFTY: We're only here to help them down our chosen path, of course! You see we're

ALL: Friends of the working mouse!

O’Bloat: Trust us!

ALL: Friends of the working mouse! Friends of the working mouse!
