The Lyrics

Some kittens arrived just the other day
Small soft and furry, love to watch them play
But they can't play catch, they don't obey
Scratch up the house when I am away
And they were growin' 'for I knew it, and as they grew
I'd say, I'm gonna make a stew, yeah
You know I'm gonna make some stew.

And the cat's on the griddle in a pot of stew
There's plenty of it here, boy, for me and you
Why don't you sit down and have a helpin' my friend
Have another helpin' or two, yeah
Another helpin' of my griddle cat stew

I got ten more just the other day
Thought I'd fix 'em up in a different way
Maybe roast 'em whole
Make a flambe' but that's a lot to do
And they're better this way
You see you cook 'em on the griddle then you put 'em in the stew
Then you add a little garlic too, yeah
You add a little garlic too


I was standing on a ledge just the other day
Thinking I should change my carniverious ways
Look at all that fur, sittin' in a large pile
I shook my head and I said with a smile
What I'd really like now is to get me a siamiese
Like to get me one that has no fleas


Long since the time when I've eaten that way
They say that's the reason why they put me away
I said I'll ask a favor if you don't mind
Just let me out of here and I'll be good this time
I no longer play with talssle and my purring is through
But I've gotta get some griddle cat stew, yeah.
I've gotta get some griddle cat stew.

And as I put down the fork it occured to me
This cat was a siamiese
This cat was siamiese!
