I'm Going to Drown My Cat from Bob Walser, who got it from someone in England Chorus; I'm going to drown my cat And smother it with a pillow It's pissed all around my hat And it's gonna have to pay But I'm not into cruelty, So when I'm done dissecting it, I'm sending all the bits to the ASPCA 1. Oh farethee well dear cat (dear kitty?) You have piddled once too often I'm off to buy a dog, who is good and well behaved You never discriminated the place you urinated So rest in pee will be The epitaph on your grave. 2. Oh to get you potty trained I have struggled til my strength Just like your bladder has been Drained over walls and rugs and chairs Your metabolism keeps booming Because you produce more than you're consuming It's really quite beyond me, so Pussy say your prayers. 3. I will take my baseball bat, Made of the finest willow And put you out with that And my troubles at the blow. but I don't envy St Peter When he comes to the gate to greet ya You wait til he's not looking, Then you'll piddle through his halo.
