The Cat Song

My name is Eddie
I am a cat
And I sleep with one eye open
Watching the morning sail

Someone calls Eddie
Up to their lap
And I purr
But I'd sure like to get me
My breakfast
Especially a fishtail
Turn it into a fishscale

No, I'm not
Like you people
You wheel and you war
And you whitewash your day away
(Where you goin'?)
On my merry way

Spring full of fire
Up goes a flower-kite
Run now
Sleep in the sun now
I like my fun now

My name is Eddie
I am a cat
And I sleep with one eye open
Meow
