The Lyrics

Warning: Slightly gross
Watching his cat strain, with his head hung low
Couldn't get a log out, it was a real slow go
heard the meow of the cat, he could picture the smell
Put his nose too near - the litter box from hell...

That one cat's smell, just blew him away
with tears in his eyes, and the very next day

Bought a bag of kittylitter, and a second bag too
Made sure it was scented, to mask that smelly goo

That one cat's smell, sunk deep in the sand
Didn't take long, to fill the box again
Just one cat's dung, buried way down low
Was green and sticky, like bad cookie-dough
So he started scoopin' ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on scoopin'
Get the big chunks to the top

And be a CAT BOX HERO - got dust in his eyes
He's a CAT BOX HERO - dust in his eyes
CAT BOX HERO, got dust in his eyes - (he'll dump again tonight)

Found a cat without a name, in a heavy downpour
Then he passed a huge log, bet its butt was sore
Took it in from the shadows, got it out of the rain
Now twice as much - must the cat litter change

Now he better keep scoopin' he just can't stop
Gotta keep on scoopin' - more turds are gonna drop

And be a CAT BOX HERO - got dust in his eyes
He's a CAT BOX HERO - dust in his eyes
CAT BOX HERO, dust in his eyes - (he'll dump again tonight)

Got 9 lives...
Have 9 lives tonight ........

Impressive. I can actually sing these lyrics to the original melody, too. Not too many parodies where I can do that, except for Jeff Buchoff's stuff.

This is one of the funniest parodies I have ever seen...when i sang it to my girlfriend over the phone, she was on the floor laughing!

Patrick, didn't know you were on the site earlier, I just hopped on around Nov. 10th, 2003. So I went to check out your other titles. OH, OH...I've got a profound and obsessive addiction to "Cat Box" parodies so I had to check this one out tonight. Yup! Gross for sure. 5 Extra-Large Scoops, 3 times and there's still more catcrap to gift-wrap. Have done a couple "Litter" parodies myself, although you might not know the original song to at least one of them; "Litter Green" ("Bitter Green" by Gordon Lightfoot), and "We're So Sad Kitty Ate That Feline Pine" ("I Feel Fine" by the Beatles). Will check back on your earlier works when I log onto the site again tomorrow. 'nite all...
