Lyrics

Look at the fishes in the catbowl.
What, dear cat, might be going on here?
I didn’t think that would really happen.
But it looks like something happen’d here.
Fishes there in the cat bowl
and I don’t know who to blame for this state.
Is it fishes that got in the cat bowl
or did the cat put the fishes here?

I like to eat fishes sometimes,
but I’m not a cat. I’m a human.
I like to eat my fishes with cats
I like to share them so we can all
enjoy the fishes on our crackers,
but you see that the cats don’t eat crackers.
I like to eat my fish with mustard,
but you know that cats, they don’t eat that either.

I would like to sing and dance,
but I think that my cat wants to do that, too.
I would like to sing and dance,
and I think that my cat wants to do that, too.
Kitty cats are nice in sunshine.
And they run and they dance all the time.
I would like to play in sunshine.
But you know that I just, I just stay inside.

I would like to dance with kitty cats
and run around outside like.
I think that would be a swell time.
If I ran around like it was out.
For outside it is sunny and
I like to run and play all the time.
But I also like my computer,
so I’ll stay inside and I’ll just cry.
