"Suspicious of Mice"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

This was not written to make fun of Elvis, but rather because I misheard the first line of the original song. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't hear the "W" in "We're." In a sense, I'm laughing at myself.
Ricotta in a trap
They can't walk out
Because they love it too much, baby

Why can't they see
What they're doing to me
Why, they eat me out of house and home

I can't go on much longer
Suspicious of mice
And my kitty can't catch
All suspicious mice

So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
He's the exterminator for the mice.

They refuse to die
No, they've multiplied
I notice that food's gone from
My pantry.
I can't go on much longer
Suspicious of mice
And my kitty can't catch
All suspicious mice

Oh don't let one survive
Kill all rodents tonight
Please make sure they all will die

Wait! Kitty just caught
A mouse- no, he got two!
Mmm yeah, yeah

Oh Joelle, this is a masterpiece! You had me from the very first clever line, "Ricotta in a trap". Wonderful!

Thanks, guys! I misheard "We're caught in a trap" as "Ricotta in a trap" and it went from there.
