Opening Monologue

Fievel: It's amazing, but one of my very best friends is a cat called Tiger! Impossible, as this may seem, it happens to be true. Of course, I must admit that Tiger is not quite like other cats. He's a little bit... well, you know. In fact, I think Tiger should've been a mouse, but he happens to be a cat, but he's still my friend.

Lyrics

I'm a crazy alley cat, Tiger is my name
I'm supposed to be ferocious, but I'm really nice and tame
He's not too much like other cats, he's not so sly and smart
He's really just a powderpuff, he's got a gentle heart
I found myself a buddy, pal and friend
It's amazing 'cause we're such a pure imperfect blend

Fievel and me, we are just two opposites
As different as can be, don't know how it happened
It is such a mystery that Fievel and me are friends
Tiger and me, we're a combination
An impossibility, but somehow it worked out
And we're as thankful as can be that Fievel and me are friends

I'm a green-eyed feline and I wear a coat of stripes
Used to hang out with those fat cats on the backyard fence at night
Got tired of pussyfootin' round, meowing at the moon
So I just purred a while and changed my tune
He became a little mouse's friend
He helped us like the cat game, on him we can depend

Fievel and me, we are just two opposites
As different as can be, don't know how it happened
It is such a mystery that Fievel and me are friends

I don't like puppy dogs
They make life a misery
So I know just how those little mouses feel

Fievel and me, we are just two opposites
As different as can be, don't know how it happened
It is such a mystery that Fievel and me are friends
Tiger and me, we're a combination
An impossibility, but somehow it worked out
And we're as thankful as can be that Fievel and me are friends

Fievel/Tiger and me...
Are friends
