The Lyrics

After months of being in a funk, and later months not in a funk but unable to write a complete song, I return with "Rat Cancer". Inspired by my ride with co-workers after lunch to a Starbucks. Probably not my best, but I made my co-worker's side hurt while reading it.
We didn't know quite how to see
The packages that sweetened tea
It didn't seem like things were all that bad
I bet we drank a thousand cups
Getting’ wired and fierce hiccups
Not knowin’ then it’s ending all so sad

As life went on and years went by
I saw the cheese in daddy's eyes
And felt the love in mama's paws
They kept us warm in chips for days
Taught us how to solve a maze
Now lookin' back, I wring my claws

‘Cause I suffer from rat cancer
Not a medical enhancer
Those cheese cravings are never far away
I am suff’rin’ from rat cancer
Six months, bring a necromancer
Saccharin was the guilty thing, led me to pay

At three, three-thirty, we'd abide
Risking needles in our hide
Just to watch ol' Pinky and the Brain
Sometimes I think how long it's been
And how it distressed me then
It was the cell phone, gave my daddy increased pain

‘Cause we suffer from rat cancer
Need a Minnie-sized cyst lancer
Those lab assholes are never far away
I am suff’rin’ from rat cancer
No time to be a romancer
Yellow Dye was the guilty thing, I have to say

We all suffer from rat cancer
It's a vermin death advancer
Our mouse coffins are never far away
I am suff’rin’ from rat cancer
Call me a PETA grievancer
Rats from NIHM got the better deal, I have to say

‘Cause I suffer from rat cancer
Not a medical enhancer
Those cheese cravings are never far away
I am suff’rin’ from rat cancer
Six months, bring a necromancer
Saccharin was the guilty thing, led me to pay

Suff'rin' from rat cancer

Unusual . . . but vote worthy, Sir! The line " felt thelove in Mama's paws" seemed sweet , knowing that she was a rodent!
