The Lyrics

So many performances of Cats, so many lyrics that changed during time. Sometimes songs are longer, sometimes they are shorter, sometimes they are rather different. I tried to write them in the most complete way I could find, and I hope I rescued also the less-known parts of them. Please, e-mail me if there's something missing or wrong.
