Runt: (spoken) Uh, Rita? Rita, tell me again how it's gonna be. Rita: I already told ya, sixteen times. Runt: I wanna hear it again, yeah, d-definitely wanna hear it again. Rita: We can take care of ourselves We're independent, me and you. Runt: (spoken) That's true. Rita: (sung) We don't need any humans To tell us what to do. From now on we're livin' Where nobody can get in our way. Runt: (spoken) And, uh, where're we gonna be living? Rita: (sung) Monterey! Runt: (spoken) Oh, that's right, like, like the cheese. Rita: Monterey! Monterey! It's the California livin' With the sun and the surf And we'll never have to give in To another human master again. It's Cannery Row for dinner and then We'll sleep on the beach Where the sand is heaped up in piles. Runt: (spoken) Definitely a lot of sand. Rita: (sung) A litterbox for miles! Rita: You'll never have to fetch another slipper again No more having to pretend to be nice. We're finally free From now on we'll be With the sun and the sand And the thundering seas On the cliffs at the harbor With the cypress trees And the Fisherman's Wharf It's all there In Monterey! ---Happy Bob's Bunny Ranch

Rita: This is great! This is perfect! It's always the same thing with cats There's always some ignorant human assumin' We like to chase rats. I'm gettin' real sick of this stereotypical view We can't be controlled and we hate to be told what to do. Rita: They misunderstand us; they can't command us We don't purr if we're not in the mood.
