Did somebody say choir auditions?

Rattus: Christmas Choir? Did someone say auditions for a Christmas Choir: Huurrmph.
♪ ♫ Adeste Fideles
Laeti triumphantes
Venite, venite in
Bethlehem...♪ ♫

Tea Rat: I say old rat, you have a sonorous voice. But listen to a master:
♪ ♫ Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere...♪ ♫

Rattus: Wait a minute. A master singer? You? Why I was lead vocalist at my alma mater...

Tea Rat: "Was" is the operative word here. But we seek a PRESENT lead singer, and there is only one logical choice here.
♪ ♫ Feliz Navidad.
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad.
Prospero Ano y Felicidad.♪ ♫
♪ ♫ I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas. I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of..♪ ♫

Rattus: You're evading the obvious, and that is that I am unequivocally lead singer. Singing in Spanish does not change that fact. Where did you pick up Spanish anyway?

Tea Rat: ¿Que? No te intiendo, amigo ratón.
♪ ♫ Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere...♪ ♫

♪ ♫ Natum videte
Regem angelorum
Venite adoremus
Dominum ♪ ♫

Tea Rat:
♪ ♫ Go tell it on the mountain,
Our Jesus Christ is born...♪ ♫

TEA RAT: AND....may I add that I was MEZZO SOPRANO in the Glee Club at Oxford and TWICE chosen to sing the lead in Mozart's DIE ENTFÜHRUNG AUS DEM SERAIL once in Montenegro and then in our beloved city of Oxford...can you boast such a resumé old thing? Ah...I knew it. Therefore, it is evident that I am the obvious choice for the lead. Put that in your book....TEA RAT

RATTUS: Oh dear. Her he goes again....heaven help us!

Ruben Rivera said...

Rattus: I have it on good authority that you have not sung professionally as you purport.

Tea Rat: And by "good authority" I suppose you mean yourself? Dear fellow, I'll have you know that I have sung before all the crown heads of Europe.

Rattus: My good rat, singing in front of a row of toys with paper crowns while in the toilet shaving your whiskers is NOT the same thing.

Tea Rat: Details, details.

Rattus: Yes, those pesky little things called details.

Tea Rat: Well I almost got to sing before the crown prince of Monaco.

Rattus: Come again?

Tea: I mean the mayor of the City of Industry in California.

Rattus: Tea, tell the truth now.

Tea: Alright, it was janitor at Nowhere Primary School.

The Dutchess said...

-Hi..Mozes here....To Sing or not to Sing that's my motto in life..I can sing like Caruso..and might I bring the Dutchess with me...she can sing like Nina Simone...on a good day...:)

The Dutchess said...

I believe Andrea left the building..only silence..so the King Singers were so kind to sing today...:)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

teeeeheeeee! THE KING SISTERS...WAIT, I REMEMBER THEM! And.....Mozes, I believe you have an alto voice and DUTCHESS DEAR, I KNOW YOU CAN SING..."TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD..." And Rattus old man...hmmmmph! You forced me to tell of the janitor at Nowhere Primary School; may I add that I was using him as a practice audience before I went out on the REAL STAGE....VOILÀ...donc, yes, it is true, I did sing for him BUT I went on to bigger things. You are forgetting that. COME ON NOW, FESS UP and admit that you live with a genius; in the realm of HOME ENTERTAINMENT, I AM A god!!!!!!!! TEA RRRRRRRRAT

Ruben Rivera said...

Rattus: It is true dearest friend. In the field of live home entertainment you a god. You are indeed a legend in your mind.

Ruben Rivera said...

Dear Dutchess, that youtube of the King's Singers! Where in the world do you find this stuff. Absolutely hilarious.

Rattus wants the lead.

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Yes! I agree.. The King's Singers are GREAT...WHAT A HOOT! Do you think Bebe could keep up with them?

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I think Bebe can not even sing with them, she can also DANCE to the rhythm! There will be great magic at the Theatre in Nowhere.....

Ann Nichols said...

So special!
I love what you wrote about imagination... I couldn't agree more. Imagination is what keeps us from being computers and it adds joy to the world!
So happy to have found you and am following along! Please join me at my history blog... start with this link http://www.stnicholasandchristmas.com/2010_06_01_archive.html
to see how much I believe our imagination should be applied along with knowledge! The one needs the other!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Can you see me dancin to the rhythm??? Put your boots on TEA RAT and join me will you?

Jacqueline said...

Jacqueline: Oh zip-a-dee-do-dah, good night to all...zzzz...

Gretta: Why look at that! I sang Jacqueline a lu-lu-bye and she went fast asleep.

In the morn, I'm gonna ask her if I can join the fa..la..la...la...zzzzzzzzz

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Come on Gretta, you can be the alto soprano......GET THOSE SPIKES UP AND AWAY AND SING A HIGH NOTE!

Jacqueline said...

When are we going on top of the mountain to tell it like it is...Jesus Christ is born? Gretta would like to know which mountain, how high and where...over the hills and Everywhere or Nowhere? All she knows is that Everywehre and Nowhere all need Jesus!
