The Lyrics

I like to believe that Tom & Jerry really like each other and are just putting on a ruse for the humans.
Intro: Mmm…
Mmm, oh…

Verse 1: Some say we fight cuz of nature
Some say we brawl just for the fame
Some say we scrap for the triumph, yeah
Some say we clash just to play the game
My owner thinks that rodent’s are bad things
Deseased, plague causing
But I’ll bet, as you run, that you are okay
So far, you’re just causing me pain

Chorus: Some felines eat you mice
But I don’t! I think that you’re nice
If it ain’t you Jerry, if I ain’t got you Jerry!
Some felines want fish filets
I’ll take, a pan to the face!
Cuz everything means nothing, if I ain’t got you!

Verse 2: Some rodents search for a shelter
Promises warmth is indoors
Some rodents need a mound of cheeses!
That’s the only way to stay all covered
Everyone tries with a wooden mousetrap
And bait with a bit of cheese
I am not dumb, this trap goes unused
This cat hunts me?

Chorus: Some rodents run and hide
But I don’t! I stay out and fight!
I fight with you Thomas, if I ain’t got you Thomas
Some rodents want pounds of cheese
You just keep me from obese!
Cuz everything means nothing, if I ain’t got you-you-you!

Chorus: Those people want you gone
But I don’t! Please stay here for long
I’ll help you out Jerry, I’ll try to hide you Jerry
These people want mice extinct
I won’t! Have this mouse to eat!
Cuz everything means nothing, if I ain’t got you!

I'm glad that somebody went the platonic round with their parody. It mixes things up a bit. This was a great parody about a relationship shared by two goofball cartoon characters we all know and love! Well done!

Fun parody!

(AofA) Charming... That's the only thing I can really say. It wasn't hilarious, but it had its moments. Favorite couplet: "Some felines want fish filets/ I’ll take, a pan to the face!" That was a great line. I just wish there were more of them.

(Ages 9) A slight reformation towards Tom and Jerry! Yeah, I remember watching the show when I was younger and sometimes Tom and Jerry shake hands at the end of some episodes. Yeah, they really are friends...or maybe the change had something to do with Tom having enough pain and suffering while failing to chase Jerry around to have him for dinner. Oh well, like the old saying goes "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!" The game of cat and mouse is over...555's for this rodent to feline relationship!

(Ages) I just realised how long it's been since I watched some Tom & Jerry. Interesting parody set to an unfathomably dreary and boring OS, this was pretty good. 555!

Nice spoof here, now if we can only get the Three Stooges to be this loving...the world will be a better (yet, slightly less funny) place. 555
