The Lyrics

I think this would be more funnyiery with a video :) I'll get on that. Was kinda difficult actually since the original song tells a story, and I didn't really want this like that. Based on a true cat. Welp, here it is, turned out better than expected I think:
I was walking down the hall,
When out the corner of my eye,
I saw a pretty little cat stare up at me
He said I said I should do what I can
To make this guy fall down
And started weaving between my feet
Man, this cat is not nice
Gets fleas, ticks, parasites
And tries to sleep on my head everyday
They say he's such a sweet lil' thing,
Can I get one for myself?
They must not see, he's shiiitting in the bed

You know there aint no rest for the kitteh
Gotta go climb some treeeees
He got birds to chase
He got a mouse to seek
There aint no wrong place to go to sleeeeep
You know he has to pounce
He has to scratch
Even though he tears up the wood
You know there aint no rest for the kitteh
Until he rids the world of good!

Not even 15 minutes later,
I'm about to sit and eat
When I saw the shadow of the cat creep on my right
Then he pounced from underneath,
He held a claw up to my teeth,
He made it clear that he was looking for a bite
He said gimme all your grub,
I want your salmon not your rice
But if you try to save your food the goldfish dies
And so please, you can have my cat
But first I've gotta state the fact
He's crazy, stinky, bad, and likes to bite

You know there aint no rest for the kitteh
Gotta go catch some fleeeeas
He got his own tail to chase
He got a mouse to eat
There aint no one that is more lazyyyy
Shedding throughout the house,
Messed-up floormats
Sometimes he thinks he owns the hood
You know there aint no rest for the kitteh
Until he rids the world of good!

*12 second instrumental with various clips of the cat being bad*
Now a couple hours gone
And I was sitting on the john,
When, yay, the cat decides he'd like to walk on in -_-"
Now I turn on the TV,
Takes the remote-- he likes to chew--
And with a gnaw, the channel's changed to CNN
If there's a laser point, he jumps
If there's a paper bag, he wants
He stuffs his big ol' mouth with lots of catnip pills
And his sandpaper-tongue is rough
Also he likes to lick his butt
Oh yeah, the vaccuum cleaner will give him the chills

You know there aint no rest for the kitteh
Mommy, don't give him treeeeats
Yes he kills for play,
And 'meows' to speak,
Loves pain, watches all his persons bleeeed
You know he's from the pound,
He can't go back,
Though sometimes you know, I wish he would
Oh no there aint no rest for the kitteh
Until he rids the world of good!

Great work on this. I grew up with at least one cat in my parents house, and can relate to most of this. Great work getting so many all-to-true references in there, like 'sandpaper tongue' and 'vacuum cleaner chills'. Especially liked the 'want your salmon not your rice' line.

Thanks. He only recently developed the bad habit of begging for food, and I got tired of it, and I KNEW I had to do something...so I wrote a mean song about him. (His name is Smokey)
