By Roger Brown


I SIT AND WATCH WHILE OTHERS SING AND DANCE,
BUT I KNOW SOME DAY I WILL HAVE MY CHANCE.
I'M DOWN TODAY, IT'S TRUE,
MY CHANCES HAVE BEEN FEW,
BUT I'M NOT DISCOURAGED 'CAUSE I KNOW WHAT I CAN DO.

I MAY BE A TINY MOUSE AND IN A CAGE,
BUT I KNOW I BELONG UPON THE STAGE.
AND SOME DAY I WILL BE
A PERSONALITY
AND THEN THE ONE I'M WATCHING ON THE TV WILL BE ME.

NOW PEOPLE TEND TO TREAT A MOUSE
WITH SIMPLE CONVERSATIONS,
BUT I AM LIKE NO MOUSE YOU'VE EVER SEEN.
SO IF YOU THINK OF ME THAT WAY,
THEN MAYBE I SHOULD MENTION,
I'M SCOUSE THE MOUSE AND I HAVE GOT A DREAM.

OOH!

SO LOOK OUT, WORLD, 'CAUSE HERE I COME,
IF YOU WANT SOMEONE SPECIAL, I'M THE ONE.
ALTHOUGH I MAY BE SMALL,
IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME AT ALL,
'CAUSE I KNOW IN MY HEART THAT SOME DAY I'LL BE TEN FEET TALL.


DIALOG:

NOBODY HEARD THIS MOUSE SINGING IN THE NIGHT AS HE DREAMED OF THE FAMOUS LIFE ON THE TELEVISION.

CHRISTMAS CAME.

ON CHRISTMAS MORNING THE BOY RAN IN, CHEWING A MINTS PIE.
"HERE YOU ARE, MISTER SCOUSE, IT'S A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR YOU." IT WAS A TINY ROPE LADDER.
"SEE IF YOU CAN RUN UP THAT!" THE BOY TURNED HIS BACK. THE BOY HAD LEFT THE DOOR OPEN!
SCOUSE SEES THE ROPE LADDER AND SWUNG LIKE TARZAN OUT INTO SPACE.
"HEY! COME BACK!"
THERE WAS A TINY HOLE IN THE WALL, SCOUSE DISAPPEARED. THROUGH THE MOUSEHOLE HE COULD SEE HIS BELOVED TELLY. HE FELT SOMETHING, LOOKED, A BROWN MOUSE WAS STARING AT HIM.
"HELLO, WHITIE!" SAID THE BROWN MOUSE. IN ANIMO, OF COURSE.
"WHAT? WHO'S THAT? WHO ARE YOU?"
"I'M A MOUSE. I LIVE HERE. I WAS WATCHING YOU DOING ALL THOSE FUNNY NOISES."
"THAT'S SPEAKING! THAT'S ENGLISH! I LEARNT IT FROM THE TELLY. I COULD TEACH YOU ENGLISH. OH, SORRY, I FORGOT, I LEAVE TONIGHT."
"WHERE YOU GOING?"
"INTO THE WORLD! THE WORLD NEEDS ME! WHY DON'T YOU JOIN ME, WE COULD BE A GROUP?"
"I'LL THINK ABOUT IT."
"WHAT'S YOUR NAME?"
"BONCE, BECAUSE I'VE GOT A BIG HEAD. MY FATHER CALLED ME THAT. HE WAS A LONDON MOUSE."

ALL THAT DAY, SCOUSE AND BONCE WATCHED THROUGH THEIR PEEPHOLE , PEOPLE LAUGHED AND CHILDREN PLAYED. THE SMELL OF THE CHRISTMAS DINNER. THE MICE WERE VERY HUNGRY.
THE JOLLIES WERE ON THE TELEVISION, BONCE AND SCOUSE WATCHED.
