The Lyrics

cat.. the other white meat
the food arrived just the other day
it came to the house in the usual way
there was a tip to give, and
paper plates, came from a wok just a mile away
it was good but don't ya know it, before twas through
we found cat meat through and through, man
there was cat meat through and through

there was cat in the ladle, at the Hong Kong spoon
delicate essen from here to Rangoon
have you tried a cat yet? in now now when?
and we'll taste it better then, man
we know we'll eat a big cat then

had taco bell just the other day
the kfc rats had all ran away
it was good and moist, and brown and nice
it tasted better than the animal that eats mice
and as I chewed away, the taste never thinned, it said
I'm gonna love cat too, yeah, some rat meat and cat meat too

there was cat in the ladle, at the Hong Kong spoon
delicate essen from here to Rangoon
have you tried a cat yet? in now now when?
and we'll taste it better then, man
we know we'll eat a big cat then

well I had some porridge just the other day
tsted like ca I just had to say
HUN? i'm asking you, is there cat in this pile?
she nodded then she said with a smile
what I'm really like now is to make all your cats food
there is less of them in that big brood

there was cat in the ladle, at the Hong Kong spoon
delicate essen from here to Rangoon
have you tried a cat yet? in now now when?
and we'll taste it better then, man
we know we'll eat a big cat then

I no longer care if the hair's cut away
i eat it up as I chew away
I thought I like to eat this, I just don't mind,
I try every meat of the animal kind
you see, there's mad cow in cattle, and the avian flu
but it's sure nice the meat with no "moo" bads
it's sure nice to eat no "moo"

and as I picked up the phone for delivery
I'll order more white meat
cat is the new white meat

there was cat in the ladle, at the Hong Kong spoon
delicate essen from here to Rangoon
have you tried a cat yet? in now now when?
and we'll taste it better then, man
we know we'll eat a big cat then

Some good lines here but it's hard to beat Bob Rivers's song: "The cat's in the kettle at the Peking Moon The place I eat every day at noon they tell me it's chicken or beef or pork but it's purring on my fork..." or something like that.

Not an easy song to parody. I know I've done several. You never know what you are eating when it is mystery meat. I had a hamburger in Korea once. It had a slight bite to it. Hmm - Make you wunndah wad dey use fo bahgah. But that's me. I'll eat most anything that won't eat me first.

Diner: Waiter this meat tastes like dog.
Wu Yang: We onry use USDA appluved meat - you no likey you go now, you no come back. We no runna funny bishnesh - YOU GO NOW!
Diner: Can I get a doggy bag?
Wu Yang: Oh you too funny I fowget to raff. No mo doggy bag, no mo MTV, No mo twissed sistah. You go now.
