Kevin Pitts / Greg Trooper

Here come those furry things again
Who gave them the notion I’m their friend
I wanna sleep just a little more
These damned ole cats are at the door
They want me up right now at 5 am

How on earth did you get me in this mess
Feeding all these yowling fuzzy pests
Before we even get caffeine
Got to cater to these darned felines
While you wait for your coffee in our comfy bed

You rescued one
You rescued three
Now my life revolves around
Cats and caffeine
You’ll rescue more I do believe
But most of all baby
You rescued me

I grew up with goats cows and hogs
And my favorite pet was Floppy the dog
Now that’s a critter I can understand
Does whatever a man demands
Not like these cats out crying in the hall

Now babe it’s been more than seven years
And my love for you will never disappear
You knew I hated cats right from the start
But now even they done stole my heart
Now that’s got to be true love Michelle my dear
