The Lyrics

You can tell I'm a cat owner!
And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow

And if you should ever go away
Well, then I'll call the fireman and try
To get you back home today
Even though you won't behave

They Keep purring, keep meowing
They keep curling on your tired lap, for sure
That's what cats are for
In good times, and bad times
They'll be on your nerves forever more
That's what cats are for

Well, you came and adopted me
And took over my humble home
And you don't know how to say thank you

Whoa, and then for the times when I'm at work
You get into my cabinets,
tear my chairs and couches apart,
then act like you don't remember....

You keep clawing, keep biting
You keep tearing up my furniture, for sure
That's what cats are for
In good times, in bad times
You'll be in my stuff forever more
that's what cats are for

Whoa... oh... oh...they keep stalking, keep hissing
They keep jumping after little birds, for sure
That's what cats are for
For good times and bad times
They'll be chasing mice forever more
That's what cats are for

They Keep purring, keep meowing
They keep curling on your tired lap, for sure
That's what cats are for
In good times and bad times
They'll be on your nerves forever more
That's what cats are for

But we love them anyway....

I just got my first cat. His name is Rascal, and you can guess how he got the name! All 5s!
