The Lyrics

I'm just a tabby - that's nothing new
It's not exotic - on birds I chew
I sit there purring when there's nothing left to mew
Eyes yellow color and hair like down
And many days I'll just act the clown
I tear the house up when there's no one else around

I'm such a mixture - I'm such a mixture
I got a million fleas all over myself
That feline doctor gave me elixir
And took my temperature in backside - oh hell!
But still I'm yearning up and yearning down and yearning in and yearning 'round

Oh turning Siamese
I wish I'm turning Siamese - I really want to
Turning Siamese
Be an aristoCatic breed - I really want to
Oh turning Siamese
I'd have an ancient pedigree - I really want to
Turning Siamese
And speak café-au-lait-alese - I really want to

I'm such a trickster - I'm such a trickster
I dug the trilliums all up by the well
They blamed the doggie - that misadventure
And now that pooch he wants me to burn in hell!
You see me playing up and crouching down and stalking you and slinking 'round

Oh turning Siamese
I wish I'm turning Siamese - I really want to
Turning Siamese
Oh such blue eyes would be a tease - I never blink - no!
Call fire engines please
For when I get stuck up in trees - won't be extinct-o
Fall from balconies
And I flip one-eighty degrees to land on feet so!

Got mice, cat nip, got yarn, got tuna
Got tom for sin - oh life is always a lark
Everyone I treat just like a total stranger
Everyone must pet me or I'll be a danger
Everyone

And now I'm fin'ly free of fleas
Because you paid all the vet fees - I'm in the pink-o
Never never tease
Or right into your thumb with ease - my teeth will sink-o
Turning Siamese
I wouldn't wanna be Burmese - or not a lynx - no
Disobedient-y
You think I'm cute as cute can be - got you hoodwinked so

(cute kitty dancing music)

Oh stroke my tummy please
And then I'll rub against you knees - I'm such I minx-o
Playin' with your keys
And rolling in your washed undies - I'm such a kinko
Flexing claws with ease
I scratch the couch into Swiss cheese - it's just instinct-o
(stinct-o) (stinct-o)
Worship me on knees
As the Egyptians did decree - I'll be so Sphinx-o

I had it in my head that this was gonna be about twins. I was thinking, "Man, how in the hell are they gonna pull that off?" But then I started reading and remembered...oh yeah...cats...duh. Anyway, I liked this a bunch. Good job.

I grew up with a Siamese cat and I swear would NEVER own another breed of cat the rest of my life. Excellent!

Who the hell gave you straight ones? >:-(

Couldn't vote on it because I couldn't remember how the song really goes, but I loved the story & the images. From your scores I'd have to say you nailed everything. Too bad someone gave you ones, must be a cat hater.

Rice, surely I don't have to explain the concept of the one guy to you, I am sure you know him well.....yes?..... ;-) Paul, wait'll one of your parodies makes it into the top ten and then you will see that it doesn't need to be about cats....it could be "An Ode To Mother Theresa" and still score ones!

Added to say "Paul, you don't recall how Turning Japanese goes" ? OMG ! :-p
Rice Cube - November 24, 2003 - Report this comment
Oh, do I know the One Guy :-P The emphasis was on the fact that this parody did not deserve straight-ones, even from said One Guy :-)

Ah ! I thought for a moment you were losing your mind Rice ! LOL ! I thought you knew him (or her...!) ;-)

Feline 5's for a clever parody. Took our tabby to the pet vet Sunday for a checkup. The storyline reads like you were there! By the by, you received lyrical mention in my Christmas parody of "Jolly Old St. Nicholas"(and deservedly so)

Thanks David. But,....we WERE there ! If only you had known huh?

(ABC) Ha! Loved it! I also thought it would be a twin thing, seeing you're two authors and all, but this was still very enjoyable with some clever rhyming. You're down to 5s lives.

(ABC "T") Finally got to listen to "Turning Japanese" thanks to your mp3 file (after I finally figured out where my Music Library program hid it). Whacky stuff!! Funny number here...and your parody was clever, too...5's...
