The Invitation to the Jellicle Ball

 
Cats Soundtrack Musical, 1982
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Invitation to the Jellicle Ball Jellicle Cats come out tonight
Jellicle Cats come one come all
The Jellicle moon is shining bright
Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball




Jellicle Cats come out tonight
Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball




Jellicle Cats are white and black
Jellicle Cats are of moderate size
Jellicles jump like a jumping jack

Jellicle Cats have moonlit eyes




We're quiet enough in the morning hours
We're quiet enough in the afternoon
Reserving our terpsichorean powers
To dance by the light of the Jellicle Moon




Jellicle Cats meet once a year
At the Jellicle Ball where we all rejoice
And the Jellicle Leader will soon appear
And make what is known as the Jellicle Choice
When Old Deuteronomy, just before dawn
Through a silence you feel you could cut with a knife
Announces the cat who can now be reborn
And come back to a different Jellicle Life
For waiting up there is the Heaviside Layer
Full of wonders one Jellicle only will see
And Jellicles ask because Jellices dare:

Who will it be?
Who will it be?
