The Lyrics

I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
Raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll

Say you don't know me, or recognize my cat,
you don't know, having a cat is where it's at.
Meows at the x-box, purrs when it plays a tune,
Listens to great music while Rover howls at the moon!

Turn on your radio, listen to the beat, just remember,
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
Raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll

Someone's always wantin' to dance with my cat,
Who cares, they always seem to lose their hat?
So bad they wanna to be here, with kitty on the stage,
They're so infatuated, 'cause they know that rock's the rage!

Turn on your radio, listen to the beat, just remember,
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
Raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll

It's just another Saturday, at my humble place,
Then the music starts to play, and kitty moves with grace!

Who cares about money when we so much fun?
We're busy gettin' down, the party's never done!
Don't say you don't like it, we all know you do,
You wanna dance with me and kitty too!

(I'm looking out toward the burbs on a gorgeous Saturday night,
all the traffic is headed for Jon and Garfield's place....)

Just remember (remember)

(It's clear and warm, a purr-ific evening in the the city by the bay,
hey, I better sign off, I'm starting to talk like that swingin' cat!)

Turn on your radio, listen to the beat, just remember,
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
Raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
I raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
Raised this kitty, I raised this kitty on rock and roll
2004 Michael W. McVey

Great work, Michael - cute and funny! Only one little detail about the pacing .... you parodied the original line:

Marconi plays the mamba
Listen to the radio
Don't you remember

....as....

Turn on your radio
listen to the beat
just remember

Pretty close, pretty close, but not close enough for a pacing-5 - but a very strong 4, and very good overall.
