“And so I checked all the registered historical facts / and I was shocked and ashamed to discover / how I’m the 18th pale descendant / of some old cat or other”
“I want a cat for my birthday / That’s what I’ve been dreaming of / I won’t have a happy birthday / Without a cat to love”
“You left your kitten on the platform / with this really ragged notion that you’ll return / but she knows that when he goes he really goes”
and, of course:
“A cat on the head is what you get for not asking / and a cat on the head is what you get for asking”
now you try!
