An American Tail Wiki
Madame Mousey sings

Creature de la Nuit is Madame Mousey's villain song in An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster. She sings it during a meeting with her cat gang down in the sewers. The song is about how great she is, and that Nellie Brie should take her seriously.

Sung by Candi Milo, Joe Lala and Jeff Bennett.


MADAME MOUSEY: From the creature de la nuit

The poodle of Paris

And nowhere in the world is there a dog more smart than me

I'm clever, chic, and wise

Don't judge me by my size

And if you give me trouble

I will rip out both your eyes!

You're fools to mess with me

The creature da la nuit

Without me you were starving

Living on scraps and rice

CATS: Rice!

MADAME MOUSEY: Now we're on our way to easy street

Soon we'll be rolling in mice

CATS: Mice!

MADAME MOUSEY: C'est moi who rules the street

Powerful, yet petite

Don't try to double cross me

Or I'll break your stinking feet!

So don't make light of me


The creature de la nuit

I may appear a mere poodle

CATS: Poodle!

MADAME MOUSEY: But deep in my heart, I remain

CATS: She remains

MADAME MOUSEY: A Pitbull! A wolf! A Doberman Pinscher!

Or better yet--a Great Dane!

CAT 1: You know, there's nothing like a Dane.

CAT 2: But what about that there reporter?

MADAME MOUSEY: I will nab that nosey miss!

In a trap she can't resist

And then, I'll give her pretty neck

A chic French twist!

So madmoiselle Nellie Brie

You must take me seriously

If Napoleon were a her with fur

He would be me!

I make no apologies

Je suis

CATS: Not she!

MADAME MOUSEY: Un formidable enemy

CAT: That means she's bad

MADAME MOUSEY: You pressy pussy cats agree

I'm the creature de la nuit! En garde!
