The Lyrics

When it is raining cats and dogs, Dire Straits sing this:
Why are my pens empty?

Breeding all those new ewes,
There's nothing to it.
You milk those cows so naturally.

Now it's raining,
I'll help you through it,
Kittens for nothing,
And the pups for free.

Now the doom is lurking
You think that the rain blew it,
Let me tell you, the rain's good, son.
You will get a bit wet if you linger,
get a pet to take home to your Mum.

Look at all these cute pets falling from heaven,
That little black one is for me.
We've got to mind those alligators,
We've got to mind those chimpanzees.

That little doggy with the cute ears is a great pup,
This bunny has black fur.
I'm sure I recognise that breed from Spain.
They have some good pets over there.

Look at all these cute pets falling from heaven,
That little black one is for me.
We've got to mind those alligators,
We've got to mind those chimpanzees.

Look at all these cute pets falling from heaven,
That little black one is for me.
We've got to mind those alligators,
We've got to mind those chimpanzees.

Needed the pet shop, but it was too far,
Don't need it now, the rain has come.
Look at that farm hand, he's waving,
need to go and feed the ram.
Need to give the ewe some.

There's sheep up there,
What's that?
Bleating noises,
I used to despise rain, but now it's the best.

Don't be shirking,
This is why you do it,
You get your kittens for nothing,
And your pups for free.

Look at all these cute pets falling from heaven,
That little black one is for me.
We've got to mind those alligators,
We've got to mind those chimpanzees.

(Dog howl)

When rain is lurking,
This is why I love it,
When storm clouds come, I'm filled with glee.
Don't be shirking,
This is why I love it,
Kittens for nothing,
And your pups for free.

Kittens for nothing,
And your pups for free.

Kittens for nothing,
And your pups for free.

What a cat, what a cat!

Kittens for nothing, (I'll name my, I'll name my, I'll name my)
And your pups for free. (Dog Morlene)

Kittens for nothing, (I'll name my, I'll name my, I'll name my)
And your pups for free. (Dog Morlene)
