Subject: Lyr Req: Cat Songs?
From: saulgoldie

I would like to add a cat song to my repertoire. The only ones I know of are "The Cat Came Back" which is not appropriate for my circumstances, and a couple by some very capable players who use tunings and fingerings that I cannot possibly make sound good with my more limited playing ability.

I would like something soft and affectionate about the love of a cat, not unlike the dog song that I have mentioned here before (and I played at the Getaway). TCCB is cute enough. But it does not suit my needs. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Saul

Maybe not what you had in mind, but The Dundee Cat is about the love of a cat!

That wasn't too serious a suggestion, but there are several cat songs in the database here.

If you put cat in the Lyrics and Knowledge Search box on the main page, untick the Forum box and do a search you'll see a lot of them. (Sadly you can't search only the titles).

My Dad used to sing

Don't do that to the poor puss cat
No, no, no, no, no
Oh do not drive your pussy cat away
you might be a pussy cat yourself some day
So, Don't do that to the poor puss cat
No, no, no, no, no.

The Dundee Cat Song *is* cute. But I cannot use it. OK, alright. Here's the story. There is yon fair maiden whose company I would like to keep. (At least from what I know so far.) She has a cat that she loves. I want to impress her with a touching cat song. Geddit?

You could try putting this to music...

THE TORTOISESHELL CAT
The Tortoiseshell cat
She sits on the mat
As gay as a sunflower, she;
In orange and black you see her blink,
And her waistcoat's white, and her nose is pink
And her eyes are green of the sea.

But all is vanity, all the way;
Twilight's coming and close of day,
And every cat in the twilight's gray,
Every possible cat.*

The tortoiseshell cat
She is smooth and fat,
And we call her Josephine,
Because she weareth upon her back
This coat of colors, this raven black,
This red of the tangerine.

But all is vanity, all the way;
Twilight follows the brightest day,
And every cat in the twilight's gray,
Every possible cat."

~ Patrick Reginald Chalmers (first published in Punch magazine, 4 March 1914)

There are 28 songs in the Digital Tradition (alias DT or database) with the keyword cat. You can get to the keyword list from the sitemap in the dropdown on the main forum page. There are also 8 with the keyword deadcat, but it does not sound like you want those.

That post above from "Severn" was actually from me. Severn was still logged in on my laptop when I got online this morning (didn't realize that until I saw "Severn" had posted but "Genie" had not).

Here's a short list of "cat" songs in the DT posted by Joe Offer in another thread.

And another good "cat songs" thread in the forum: Songs for Cats...Corrrrrrrr
