Subject: Songs about cats
From: GUEST,Calico
Date: 06 Sep 01 - 12:01 AM

I tried to see if there were any previous threads about cat songs, but I kept coming up with everything with the name "mudcat" in it, not to mention "catcher," and any other word containing those three letters. So I am posting it from 'scratch," so to speak.

I am looking for songs for and about cats.

I am already familiar with Disney's "We Are Siamese, If You Please," as well as "The Cat Came Back" and "The Persian Kitty/a>."

Then there is "How Can I Keep From Purring?"

And, of course, "Just The Claws" ("Just Because")

And "Cat's In The Cradle"

What other ones are there?

You can search for @cat in our Digitrad and Forum Search to find Digital Tradition songs about cats. I have two favorites: Body in the Bag and Leon Rosselson's The Neighbour's Cat.
Do these "favorites" indicate that I have a negative opinion of cats? I'd rather not say. Cat lovers are vicious.
some of the cat songs in the Digital Tradition are:
Cameronian Cat
The Cat Came Back
Cat's in the Cradle
The Dundee Cat
I'm Going to Drown my Cat (I think I like this one)
Little Cat
My Grandmother's Cat
Overflowing Cat Box Blues
Throw Your Cat Away
Tom Cat Blues (Ring-Tail Tom)
Senor Don Gato
Feline Gravy
Nobody's Moggy Now (another favorite of mine)
The Cats are Taking Over
Wallifou Fa Cat
Della and the Dealer
There are more if you look for them....

Calico: There's a wonderful thread with many songs and blueclickeys to other references. It is named "BS: Songs for Cats...Corrrrrrrr." It was started by English Jon's Cat, hence the noise "corrrrrrrr". In fact, if you do a search on "corrrr" you'll come up with more words of wisdom from English Jon's Cat!

The Persian Kitty, perfumed and fair
Went out in the yard to get some air
When a tom cat lean and lithe and strong
Dirty and ragged came along. Ect.

Also Mr. Mistoffiles and others from Andrew Lloyd Webbers's musical Cats have amused me for many hours. Its not folk music, but T.S. Eliot's poetry captured the true nature of cats (actually, I'm not sure cats even know what their true nature might be) and was complimented nicely by Webber's music.

I like cats, dead ones

They might eat rats, but so what

Shoot 'em with a shotgun, turn the pit bull loose and watch 'em run, or sack and sink kittens, its all good clean country fun

I like cats, dead ones

My neighbor had a Siamese cat, it was ill-tempered, lazy and fat But me and my Louisville Slugger did something about that

I like cats, dead ones

So give me a pot-bellied pig or even a snake, and leave cat ownership to the yuppies, senile old ladies, and fakes.

'Cause I like cats, dead ones

Giant SIGGHHHH! I sent away four of my six kittens this week. One home is full of noisy kids, a dog, and another cat. I am worrying. Meantime, I made the mistake of naming the remaining two - Fred and Mickey. A family came today to choose one but left empty handed. I can't let Fred go - he started sleeping with me when he was three weeks old. And Mickey is so shy. God, I don't want six cats but do want Ed and Homey and Lizzie and Alice and Mickey and Fred...HELP!

My god, some awful anti-cat songs in there. I won't start a 'Which mudcatters are cat-ist?' thread, though. I can only think of Shonen Knife songs about cats, and no-one wants to know those, so... :)

Oh, sort of off topic, but here's a long-ass quote I like, directed at you cat-haters out there. :)

"Ever notice how aggressive alpha-male dog lovers are sometimes hostile toward cats, but how cat lovers almost universally NEVER say, 'I hate dogs?' Ever hear of a cat lover spinning a dog around by its tail? Truck drivers, overweight Sunday football fans who drink a lot of beer, CIA assassins, and 'Cats and Dogs' producer Andrew Lazar--all fellows I have trouble relating to, and all (I'll be willing to wager) dog lovers with frosty attitudes toward felines. Cat lovers tend to be more sensitive, more reflective, more thoughtful, less brutish and overt." --- Jeff Wells of Reel.com, about the movie 'Cats and Dogs.'

In other words, you're mean, and you SUCK! (no offense) ;)

Actually, Eric Bogle, who wrote Nobody's Moggie Now likes cats a lot. He just doesn't think they have much sense about things like running out in the street.

(My current family of cats has no sense; my previous littermate twosome were extremely bright -- neo-natal care, or something?)

Re: "Cats" and Webber's music. I actually like many of the songs, but when I saw "Cats" on the road, the orchestra drowned out just enough words that I could not quite understand most of the lines. (It was partly sloppy diction, but mostly over-orchestration.)

It was not until PBS aired "Cats," with captions available, that I really could appreciate many of the lyrics.

Thanks, Sharon, for the referral. Sounds like a gr-r-r-reat thr-r-read!

Thanks, by the way, to all you folks for your suggestions. Many of them --e.g., Alley Cat, Kitten On The Keys, Stray Cat Strut, The Cat In The Window --I'm familiar with but they had slipped my mind.

I'm eager to find that Ring-Tailed Tom song.

As a cat lover, I find some of the dead cat songs a bit disturbing -- but some are hilarious, too. (Kind of reminds me of the dead-baby joke craze of a few years back.) When my cats 'perfume' my carpet or use by laptop case as a scratching pad, I am nearly inspired to write one of my own. But then the little devils come up and snuggle and purr and, what can I say? (Reminds me of some old boyfriends.)

Some 30 years ago I heard a Pennsylvanian Dutch ditty:

Ayns, zway, dray,
Der cat's in der schnay.
Der schnay gayt aweck,
Der cat's in der dreck.

(One, two, three,
The cat is in the snow.
The snow diminshes,
The cat is in the mud).

I can't say whether it is "der cat's" (= cat is) or "der katz's" (Katz, as in Katzenjammer Kids, short form for Katze = cat).

The melody is found over here in Germany as a basic form for children's songs (e.g. alle meine Entchen = all my ducks).

Typing the translation it deemed to me that we are talking here about an old mudcat! Make it an anthem for mudcatters?

This does not really relate to cat songs, but is "folky" enough to be of interest in terms of the cat vs. dog debate. In the old days, when people still "laid out" the dead in their homes, it was often necessary to sit up with the body as well as to make sure that all doors and windowns were secure. Why? Because cats in the vicinity tended to try to feed on the corpses given the opportunity. Pretty gross, but it does make you look at Tabby in a new light.

I mentioned this one above, but it's not in the forum or DT, so I thought I would add it.

JUST THE CLAWS
Tune: Just Because
Parody lyrics by S. W. Oates © 2001

Just because you sit there all purry;
Just because you strut like you're so hot;
Just because you may bring me something
--A pigeon or mouse you caught;
Though you make me spend lots of money,
I laugh and call you old Sandy Paws;
Well I do love you, kitty--everything, it's true,
But the claws, just the claws.

Just because you warm up my pillow,
Just because you rub 'gainst my leg
Just because you're playful and silly,
And use your meowing to beg.
Though you make your bed on my clean laundry,
And leave a trail with your old sandy paws,
Well I do love you, kitty--everything, it's true,
But the claws, just the claws.

Just because you're silky and furry,
Just because you chase butterflies
Just because you're seldom in a hurry,
And gaze with the look of the wise.
Though you make me act as your doorman,
And muss my dress with your old sandy paws,
Well I do love you, kitty--everything, it's true,
But the claws, just the claws.
