The Cat in the Hat is the title character in Dr. Seuss' book The Cat in the Hat and its sequel The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, along with four other books. The Cat in the Hat is a tall, mischievous cat wearing a big, red and white-striped hat and a red bow tie. He is one of Dr. Seuss' most famous characters and is the company mascot of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. Seussical, a musical adaptation that incorporates aspects from many of Seuss' works, features the Cat in the Hat as narrator. The Cat also stars in the 1982 television film The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat, the 2003 movie The Cat in the Hat, portrayed by comedian Mike Myers, the 2010 animated television series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, and The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library educational book series.

Verse 1:

I would not, could not on a boat,

Read any of the boring-ass plays you wrote!

Even Horton doesn't want to hear you,

And Cindy Lou Who is afraid to go near you!

You bore people to death!

You leave a classroom looking like the end of Macbeth!

I entertain a child of any age!

You gotta translate what you said on the opposite page!

How you gonna battle with the Cat in the Hat?

Little kids get scared when I step on the mat!

Think your ruffled-neck ass gonna rap to that?

I got a best-selling book about me coming back!

Verse 2:

You rap fast, you do. Yes, you rap fast, it's true.

Now, let's see how you rap versus Things 1 and 2!
