Hey, folks - how about a bit of light hearted on-line songwriting - on a subject we're all familiar with!
Please contribute extra verses/alternative choruses - yeh, and that includes you,............Spaw............

In a chat room, on a forum,
Excavating for lost time,
Ye'll find a mind that loves one liners;
An' it's Catspaw 49.

Oh, my god, dog, ho my doh, hod,
Dud, 'n' dod, an' sundry rhymes.
Ye've been stung by a rovin' WASP,
Called Catspaw 49.

Drove he Meebo
To distraction
Everytime he wrote on-line
Digs his feet in
Never budging
Is our Catspaw49.

with a 'possum, cheeks will blossom
as the wind blows all the time
Odours thrilling, the air is filling
we know it's Catspaw49!

Whale Oil beef hooked, mate
Is it that late?
Where has gone, all my time?
While I'm posting, the flames are roastin'
our friend Catspaw49

Makes you wonder how we'd manage
If we had us forty eight
Catspaw cousins,
Four full dozens,
And with Pat their potentate.

'Course he's charming
(Nearly smarming)
To the newbies in PM's.
But his thread act is
Prophylactic,
Else he'd have too many friends.

But just when you
Think you know him
And can chat or just opine,
He will blast a joke most odorous,
He's our Catspaw49!

OK, Hardiman started this one but he said I should post it. My REAL friends will understand why I've tumbled over the edge a bit today, and I finally don't care what the rest of you think!

In a canyon
In a *cavern*
Excavating Clementine
There was Cletus
And his cousin
Good ol' Catspaw69.

Yayyyyyy! The crowd roars!!!! Goodonya Hardiman! Wha-hoooo!

We had just got
Used to Vegemite
And were doing pretty fine.
Then he got a
Jar of Marmite
And he wonders why we whine.

Well sh*t, somebuddy hadda do it!

Hardiman wants to know why no one has posted the obvious v-word rhyme yet for Catspaw49er. I don't get it, do you?

Would that be "Catspaw49er always likes a good vaginer"?

You guys do realize that this little ditty (no offense there, 'Spaw) is going in the Mudcat Songbook, don't you? And thanks to the little bird that pointed me in the direction of this thread . . . I guess (hahahaha). You all have done a simply mahvahlahs job of honoring (?) our darlin' 'Spaw, so as soon as I can, I'll be putting this into the Book.

You still have time to add some verses, if you're of a mind to ;-) Well done, everyone!

When old Catspaw had a seizure
And was rushed to A and E
As they went to get him open
Catspaw whispered tenderly

"While youre in there Mr surgeon
Plese go careful, have a care
And don't mess up with my plumbing
Its already full of air"

So the closed him with a zipper
And some staples made of tin
and his heart was just so big
They could get barely it in!!!

Oh My Catspaw, Oh my Catspaw
Way down there in Ohio
Eating cheeses, wafting breezes
Playing possum, way to go!
