Thread Name: Lyr Add: Parody of The Cat's In The Cradle
Subject: ADD LYR: Cat in the Kettle
A friend in Texas send me this link. It is a parody of Harry Chapin's Cat's in the Cradle. It is a wav file, I believe, and takes a while to load at 28.8bps.

I have noted the lyrics.

Cat in the Kettle

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 don't complain,
But that's not chicken in your Chicken Chow Mein
Seems to me I ordered sweet and sour pork,
But Garfield's on my fork,
He's purring here on my fork.

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

Chow Lin asked if I wanted more,
As he was dialing up his buddy at the old pet store.
I said not today I lost my appetite,
There's two cats in my belly and they want to fight.
I was sucking on a Rolaid and a Tums or two,
When I swear I heard it mew, boys,
And that is when I knew.

There's a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon,
I think I gotta stop eatin' there at noon.
They say that its beef or fish or pork,
But its purring there on my fork.
There's a hairball on my fork.

Sorry I have no attribution. Someone went to some extent to make a production number of this.
