The Lyrics

hot fur...bummer for the kitty
back and his neck gettin' dirty and gritty
lies down...feels like hundred-fiddy
doesn't seem to be no succor for the kitty
all around, cats are lookin' half-dead
lyin' like a throw rug
or a fuzzy bedspread

but at night, its a different world
go out and kill some birds
they carry on and prowl all night
despite the fleas, it'll be alright
and babe, though their pelt makes 'em pretty
when they're shaved, cats feel such delight
what a bummer...for the kitty
what a bummer...for the kitty

'cross town...rich pets in the city
dressy felines just lookin' so pretty
cool cats...not like our poor kitty
meltin' on a concrete corner in the city
till he's seizin' and his legs flop
smothered by his hair
gonna make his little heart stop

but at night, its a different world
go out and kill some birds
they carry on and prowl all night
despite the fleas, it'll be alright
and babe, though their pelt makes 'em pretty
when they're shaved, cats feel such delight
what a bummer...for the kitty
what a bummer...for the kitty

A great song to parody...and a great job done with it! Really singable (which some parodies, funny as they are, are not...some of mine included), so: well done!555
