Video
She haunted many a low resort
Near the grimy road of Tottenham Court
She flitted about the no man's land
From "The Rising Sun" to "The Friend at Hand"
And the postman sighed as he scratched his head
"You'd really have thought she ought to be dead"
And who would ever suppose that that
Was Grizabella the Glamour Cat


Grizabella the Glamour Cat
Grizabella the Glamour Cat
Who'd have ever supposed that that
Was Grizabella the Glamour Cat?
You see the border of her coat is torn and stained with sand
And you see the corner of her eye twist like a crooked pin
You see the border of her coat is torn and stained with sand
And you see the corner of her eye twist like a crooked pin
You see the border of her coat is torn and stained with sand
And you see the corner of her eye twist like a crooked pin
Notes

The Original London Cast Recording and Australian Cast Recording CDs have this and the next song, "Memory", as separate tracks; the Broadway Cast Recording CD combines the two into one track. I decided to keep them separate for this site.
I'm really not sure who sings in the Broadway and Australian versions, sorry. :x The Australian CD doesn't have any liner notes (not like the London and Broadway CDs do), and the liner notes for the Broadway CD just list Grizabella as the singer (again, because that CD combines this with "Memory", which she -does- sing). I decided to just leave those two with black text, rather than guess and risk getting it wrong. Sorry about that.
Note that officially, this song is just called "Grizabella, The Glamour Cat". I've added "reprise" to the title here, to distinguish it from the first rendition of it.
