King of cats

King of Cats is the name given to a medley of songs from the musical Stab-a-Lot: The Itchy and Scratchy Musical in the episode "Girls Just Want to Have Sums". The first part is a parody of the song "Circle of Life" from the movie-turned-musical The Lion King and the second part is a parody of "I Don't Know How to Love Him" from the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Matt Selman. It is the thirty-second track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.

HistoryEdit

The premiere of the musical was played in Springfield Theater District where the Simpson family saw it. It was written by Tom Stoppard ans directed by Juliana Krellner. It received positive reception and Principal Skinner gave a bouquet of flowers to Krellner. However, during his speech he managed to insult women.

LyricsEdit

Bart:
Dad, taking the family to opening night is the nicest thing you've ever done for us.
Homer:
Or will ever do.
Lisa:
I can't wait to see this reimagining of Itchy & Scratchy by avant-garde director Julianna Crelmner.
Homer:
Hey, it says here the "book" was written by Tom Stoppard. This isn't a book! It's a play! (laughs) Book.
African Man:
Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamishtanaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, kimanee sayfaloooooooooooooor...
Old Cat:
All hail the king of the cats.
Cast:
Sayfalooooooor, sayfaloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooor...
Marge:
(gasps) They're coming down the aisles! What if they want to interact with me? Looking through my purse, looking through my purse, keep walking, monkey!
Bart:
Don't worry, Mom, they all pass by.
Marge: Oh thank God. (A monkey immediately walks up and' 'starts to "talk" to her. Confused, Marge makes monkey noises back.)
Bart: (chuckles)
Cast:
Itchy-Scratchy, Itchy-Itchy-Scratchy,
Itchy-Scratchy, Itchy-Itchy-Scratchy,
(cont'd over following)
Singing Cat:
From the day you were born in the alley,
To the day you were hit by a car,
There's cream to drink and mice to eat
And great big balls of yarn.
It's the circle,
The circle of—
Itchy:
KNIFE! (Itchy runs around giggling and curring off the Old Cat's arms and legs.)
Lisa:
I love the use of streamers as blood. It robs the violence of its power.
Bart:
Woo-hoo! I'm drenched in "blood"!
Scratchy:
I don't know why I trust him.
I guess some cats just never learn.
Itchy:
I feel so good when I have crushed him,
Or left him mangled, maimed and burned.
Both:
I suppose it's symbiotic,
And perhaps a bit erotic.
Scratchy:
'Cause pain is my narcotic.
Itchy:
You really liked it?
Scratchy:
Yes, I loved it.
Both:
And that's why we're always
Itchy:
Fighting...
Scratchy:
And biting...
Itchy:
And dynamite igniting!
Homer:
Hey, check it out! I'm Scratcher or somethin'.
Cast:
It's the circle,
The circle of knife!
It's the circle,
The circle of knife!
