Lyrics[]

Pretend you're a mouse when you're looking up at people
You can't believe your eyes, they look as tall as steeples
And everything is big, just as big as it can be
That's how it is when you're a mouse, a mouse as small as me

Mouses can cry, mouses can weep
We get scared and hungry when there's not enough to eat
Mouses have feelings, but we're so very shy
And when they're very lonely, mouses even cry

Mouses have feelings and we want to stay alive
And Mother Nature gave us hearts so we could survive
We're all living creatures and we've got families
But still it's really hard to be a mouse as small as me

Mouses can cry, mouses can weep
We get scared and hungry when there's not enough to eat
Mouses have feelings, but we're so very shy
And when they're very lonely, mouses even cry

It's real hard staying alive
In a mouse's world
Everything's rough and tough every step of the way
It's real hard having fun for a kid
In a mouse's world
Little mice don't have much time to play

Mouses can cry, mouses can weep
We get scared and hungry when there's not enough to eat
Mouses have feelings, but we're so very shy
And when they're very lonely, mouses even cry

Mouses even cry
