Count To A Million Thread!


And when the Foreign Office find a Treaty’s gone astray,

7041 = 3 x 2347

Or the Admiralty lose some plans and drawings by the way,


There may be a scrap of paper in the hall or on the stair—

7043, prime.

But it’s useless to investigate—Macavity’s not there!


And when the loss has been disclosed, the Secret Service say:

7045 = 5 x 1409

‘It must have been Macavity!’—but he’s a mile away.


You’ll be sure to find him resting, or a-licking of his thumbs;

7047 / 3 = 2349

7048 = 23 x 881

Or engaged in doing complicated long division sums.


Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity,

7050 = 2 x 3 x 52 x 47

There never was a Cat of such deceitfulness and suavity.


He always has an alibi, and one or two to spare:

7052 = 22 x 41 x 43

At whatever time the deed took place—MACAVITY WASN’T THERE!


And they say that all the Cats whose wicked deeds are widely known

7054 = 2 x 3527

(I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)


Are nothing more than agents for the Cat who all the time

7056 = 24 x 32 x 72

Just controls their operations: the Napoleon of Crime!


[Okay, since that one was mine, it’s your turn now.]

7058 = 2 x 3529

[OK, now for something quite different]
Jesus, I am overjoyed to meet you face to face


You’ve been getting quite a name

[Ha! “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Well played, sir! Let’s continue.]
