Sat down one midnight’s eve
I wrote that song that you begged me to write
Sweeter words and chords, I’d never seen
Kept me going all through the night

But when I woke up that fateful next day
I saw a sight and I started to pray
Your song in tatters all my work in vane
And that black and white monster just purring away

The cat ate your song
The cat ate your song

Spent the whole day going through the pain
Putting all the pieces of your song so chewed
Had no luck, I ran out of tape
Could not fix the damage of ‘you know who’

Next time I get a song to write
About you sweetie, so late in the night
I’ll make certain before I turn out the light
That the song eating menace is locked up tight


Don’t know why she decided to chew
My perfect song that I wrote for you
Maybe next time when you’re in my room
You’ll be more careful before you move
