WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MANX CAT’S TAIL?
 
div
 
I'm a chap who wonders and I wonder why I do
There's lots of things it's true I wish I really knew
But there's one-puzzle puzzles me, and it would be a blessing
If you would help to solve it, for it's really got me guessing.

Chorus: What happened to the Manx cat's tail
The Manx cat's tail, the Manx cat's tail
Poor old cat, it seems all wrong
Has to wag his little nothing all day long
Miaow; tell me how and when did they begin
What happened to the Manx cat's tail?
Did they chop it off or tuck it in?


It's so sad to think that all the pussycats and toms
And Terriers and Poms can wag their to and froms
Whilst the Manx cats have no tails at all a thing at which one shudders
How do they steer themselves at night without their little rudders.
