Cat's In The Kettle

-to the tune of Cat's In The Cradle by Harry and Sandy Chapin
Here's a cool animated verison of it, too.

Oops. Looks like you need plug-in support. So sorry.

Did you ever think, when you eat Chinese
It ain't pork or chicken but a fat Siamese?
Yet the food tastes great, so you donít complain.
But thatís not chicken in your chicken chow mein.
Seems to me I ordered sweet-and-sour pork
But Garfieldís on my fork.
Heís purriní here on my fork.

Thereís a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon
The place that I eat every day at noon.
They can feed you cat and youíll never know
Once they wrap it up in dough, boy.
They fry it real crisp in dough.

Chou Lin asked if I wanted more
As he was dialiní up his buddy at the old pet store.
I said "Not today. I lost my appetite.
Thereís two cats in my belly and they want to fight."
I was suckiní on a Rolaid and a Tums or two
When I swear I heard it mew, boys.
And that is when I knew.

Thereís a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon
I think I gotta stop eatiní there at noon.
They say that itís beef or fish or pork
But itís purriní there on my fork.
Thereís a hair-ball on my fork.
