Lyrics

I want to pet this lovely kitty
but I don’t know who or what she be.
Is she a shorthair or a Sphinx
or has something horrible happen’d?

Kitty, kitty, you’re a stone, stone cat.
You were just pretend all the time.
Kitty, kitty,
You were just a concrete statue in a shadow.

I want to pet something really soft.
Like a soft kitty cat and not a bird.
Birds aren’t so soft and they’re so fragile.
I really can’t just hug and squeeze them.

Kitty, kitty, I love you so.
You’re a lovely kit— ty, I hope you know.
Kitty, kitty, I love you so,
and I hope that you like my song.

I want to name a lovely cat.
And, I think I’d name it Pepperjack.
But then, perhaps I’d change my mind
and then change it to Buttersquash Fish.

Kitty, kitty, I love you so!
Knowing you seems very far away.
Kitty, Kitty, I love you so!
And I want to meet you some day.

I would like to have a cat or two.
When I’m a grownup or may be older, too.
I think it might be nice
to own a whole kittycat sanctuary.
Kitties! Kitties! How I love you so!
And in front, there would be stone cat, you know.
Kitties! Kitties! How I love you so!
And I would name all of them.
