  • Song Lyrics:
    I know you know what you know
    but you should know by now that you're not me
    Talk about a month of Sundays
    Toffee nosed wet weekend as far as I can see
    Hey diddle diddle
    The cat and the fiddle
    Piggy in the middle

    Bible punching heavyweight
    evangelistic boxing kangaroo
    Orangutan and anaconda
    Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse
    even Pluto too

    Hey diddle diddle
    The cat and the fiddle
    Piggy in the middle

    (Stig is dead, honestly)

    One man's civilization
    is another man's jungle, yeah
    They say revolution's in the air
    I'm dancing in my underwear
    'cause I don't care

    Hey diddle diddle
    The Cat's in the fiddle
    Piggy in the middle

    [The following four lines can be heard in Rutles bootlegs,
    but do not appear on the released recording]

    Civilizing jungle bunnies
    guinea pigs including me and you
    Talk about a knock-kneed frog
    Second cousin to a nun living in the zoo

    Walky talky man says hello, hello, hello
    with his ballerina boots
    you can tell he's always on his toes
    Hanging on a Christmas tree
    Screaming like a bogey man
    getting up my nose

    Hey diddle diddle
    The cat and the fiddle
    Piggy in the middle

    This little piggy went to market
    This little piggy stayed home
    This little piggy had roast beef
    and this little piggy had none
    This little piggy went
    All the way home
    (repeats, fades)
