ROCK A DOODLE-481
We Hate the Sun
is a villain song from Rock-A-Doodle. It is sung by the Grand Duke of Owls and his minions, as the former is playing the "Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor" on a pipe organ. It is about, of course, their hatred of light, mainly the sun. It also highlights Edmond using a flashlight on him and Patou biting his leg for trying to eat Edmond. It takes place some time after Edmond leaves for the city.

Lyrics

THE DUKE (SPOKEN):
So he turns on the Duke?
And with what do you suppose he turns on the Duke?

OWLS:
What, master?

THE DUKE (SPOKEN):
A flashlight!

OWLS:
What a horrible thing to do!
What a horrible thing to do!
Thing to do!

OWL 1:  Uh, what's a flashlight?

THE DUKE: Fool! It's the sun... on... a... stick.

OWLS: Oh, no! Oh, no! Oh, no!

THE DUKE (SPOKEN):
Enough! I took the kitty by his throat, and I squeezed him! I tried to choke him 'til his brains came out his ears! (chortles) You know, the usual. But then, when my back is turned,
What four legged, flea-bitten louse comes sneaking through the window,
That has the nerve to bite me on the leg?

OWLS:
Who? Who? Who? Who? Who? Who?

THE DUKE:
Patou.

OWLS:
Gasp!

THE DUKE:
Yes!

OWLS:
Death to Patou!

THE DUKE:
Destroy the farm! Destroy the cat! The dog!
Or do you want the chicken back?

OWLS:
No! We hate the sun! The answer's no!

THE DUKE:
And it'll make my leg feel so much better...
If that ROOSTER... NEVER... CROWS! Ta-ha-ha-ha!

OWLS & (THE DUKE):
We hate the sun, that much we know,
We hate the rooster, we'll never let him crow.
(Never let him crow!)
We hate the sun, from head to toe,
(From head to toe!)
We hate the rooster, we'll never let him crow!
Never let him crow!

THE DUKE (SPOKEN):
Never let him crow.
