The Lyrics

DKTOS? Lyrics here, MP3 here. This was originally a Ledbelly tune; Kurt's rendition of it on Unplugged (track #14) was awesome.

As for the parody, I guess this is a reversal of the saying "curiosity killed the cat".

My cat - my cat
He hides from me
Wonder where - does he sleep - at night?
I will find - where he hides
But this one - is really sly
Is he smarter - than me or you

"Here cat" - "here cat"
Where did he go?
I'm guessing - where it's warm - not cold
In the dryer? He'd catch fire!
He is dumb - but not this time
I am searching - the whole - house through

I bet - he's found a dark corner... and
Dreams about... cat nip - and beer!
Lis-ten - for sounds - not a purring... near
Damn you kitty!.... where are you now?

My cat - my cat
He hides and sleeps
Wonder where - could he be - tonight
I check high - I don't find
Where he's gone.... I rack my mind
Still I'm searching - the whole - house through
(stupid kitty!)

[break from looking for a black cat in the dark]

my cat, my cat
where did... you go?
i'm looking... then I see - eyes glow!
closed his eyes - out of sight
(this is dumb - what I then tried)
I yelled "kitty" - the fur - ball flew!

CLAWED ME *THERE* - blood it seeps - oh shite!
It's a fight - it's a FIGHT!
(when I'm done... he'll have 8 lives!)
'cause he's hissing - and holds - my jewels!...,

He's GOING - for my pole - oh no!
left him

Indeed, DKTOS, so link to the OS lyrics was a nice touch... Good idea! "Jewels"... good... hope you still have 'em :) Five decapitated lizards on your doorstep.

Thanks Carol, Joel, TT, Pat, AFW and Larry.

Joel: Yes, I have a male, Maine Coon (not purebred though) cat who is about 10 years old. He weighs about 15 pounds, which feels more like 50 when he decides to sleep on my head.

TT, AFW and Larry: The "MP3 here" underlined in the parody opening comment when clicked goes to a site that has a .wma file for listening.

We always had cats when I was a child, they all could hear the sound from the can opener from half a mile away (except for when they were in heat, go figure).

Sweet. One of my cats has comandeered my pillow. After reading this, guess I should consider myself lucky.

(ANIMAL comp)No song is parody-proof, and neither are its cover versions. You incorporated Kurt Cobain's emotional interpretation of the tune into your parody with great effect. This would be frickin' awesome to hear in performance! 555

(Animal) Gee, when a (insert colloquial slang for "cat" here) goes for the pole, it's usually not such a bad thing ... ;-)
