The Lyrics

From a warm and sunny windowsill-sleep
Wakes a groggy and aloof feline

Who goes strolling through the house
Martha Stewart
Contemplating a wine

She comes out of the sun
In her fur dress
Stun-ning as a tiger lily in the rain

Don't bother speaking
No hu-man words can
Penetrate the great disdain...

...of the ear of the cat...

She's proud and pays no mind to questions
As she jumps in your lap and purrs
And you swallow pride and sense she wants affection
You scratch behind her ears

By the french window near the patio
There's a kitten-door that's just for her

She flails her tail, and, dashes out
To chase a mouse she overheard...

...with the ear of the cat...

( --- guitar instrumental --- )

Well she looks at you so coolly
And her eyes shine like cats-eye crystal beads

She washes her-self
No bath she needs
The vet takes her to find
What's waiting inside...

...the ear of the cat...

( --- guitar instrumental --- )

Well morning comes and she's still with you
And the mouse and all the birds are gone

And you've thrown away your voice, and, up you pick her
Silently she purrs on

When a humming sound from the kitchen pounds
On her ear-drums as you open cans
She runs excited, bounding to you
As your tuna-music lands...

...on the ear of the cat...

Great, great job on a cool tune. Have you always rhymed with the OS this consistently? I've been noticing it on your work only very recently, maybe only because I'm trying to do that a bit more myself now.

I had to think about the tune of this, it's been a while since I heard this song, but your parody is very artfully done.

Leo - I've started trying to do so more and more in the past six months or so...the masters of rhyming-to-the-corresponding-syllables-of-the-original-song are Guy DiRito and John Barry, IMHO.

Could some one write a parody about the year of the cat(alytic) convertor. The year in which someone had to replace this expensive car part
