The Lyrics

[intro]

I can see him flyin' 'round it's my cat's distress
How he zooms why he moves is anyones guess
Calm down!, you friggin' nightmare
The defiant lil' creature he gives blank stares
Calm down!, you friggin' nightmare
The defiant lil' creature he gives blank stares

He was lookin' back at me with a face so mean
Then he ran at full speed up the maple tree
Sometimes! I think they've no brain
When they get feelin' frisky they start playin' their games
Fe-lines! I think they've no brain
When I call kitty kitty he don't answer the name


I am talking very smooth, that's the plan I take
But the cat isn't movin' I'll be here all day
Come Down!, you're four legs with hair
The defiant lil' creature he gives blank stares
Fe-lines!, I think they're so dim
Still I feel like he's grinnin' when I'm talking to him

[laid back guitar solo under a tree while waiting on cat]

I can see he's frozen up, irritating me
Seems he's not comprehending how to unclimb trees
Fe-lines! I think they've no brain
When I call kitty kitty he don't answer the name
Come Down!, you're four legs with hair
The defiant lil' creature he gives blank stares
Come Down!, you're four legs with hair
The defiant lil' creature he stays up there

Next time, I'll lock his ass in
When the feline is playin' with the catnip again

Five lives for this catody.

I don't know. I can see the effort is there, but it's far from purr-fect. At least it's not a cat-astrophe.

Thanks Royce, Carol, Arwen, Alvin, Rick, John and Michael.

Arwen and Alvin: Yep, cats are funny animals and here is a money saving tip; don't buy them cathouses, just get the cardboard box they come in; all of the ones I've owned have more fun with the box than the house.

Michael: I must say at least it wasn't a wreck and was pretty dog-gone good.

DKTOS, I looked for the song on the music download site, coundn't find it, this is a good parody, just from reading it. =)
Paul Robinson - October 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Yup, as a former cat owner I can testify that is just how it is...yeah, 'cathouses" are a human idea of where a cat should live...yeah, as if the cat actually knows or cares what you think...lol...they will sleep/rest wherever they wish to...unless you want to take the trouble to remove them from it...probably more than once...lol...tossing you some "PAT's ("parody author treats") - Three 5's ~ ~ ~

Now THIS one was cute...you can't tell me any different. Loved it and it made me laugh imagining that animal running all over the tree. 5's

Thanks Step-chan, Paul and Adagio. Paul, you're right about that, the first cat we had when she decided to give birth picked of all places...the couch. We moved her several times. She gave birth on the couch anyways. We bought a new couch. They sleep in odd places as well, I mentioned that before on one of your parodies before.

great stuff, Red - I liked the face-so-mean/maple-tree couplet, but esp liked the "unclimb trees" - inspired well-observed humour - 555

ABC I read it before and I still laughed at the zany, glaring cat..hehe. I just thought back on the cats I owned and they all acted crazy. 5's

(ABC) See above ... what Johnny D purred !!

Funny, at least a couple cat parodies this round. Having two cats, I can understand the crazy blank stares you describe!
Rick C - July 31, 2006 - Report this comment
ABC3C - I liked the surprise catnip ending and "unclimb trees".
Stuart McArthur - July 31, 2006 - Report this comment
ABC3C - see above - and repeat my kudos for the "unclimb" - I also liked the easy rhythm of "Still I feel like he's grinnin' when I'm talking to him" - 555
