The Lyrics

The cougar (also known as a catamount) is a wildly dispersed wild cat that inhabits regions from the northern U.S., all the way down to the jungle of South America. Because of this wide dispersal, the cougar hold the world record for the most English names (Over 40!). And honestly, they wish you'd just pick one.
Intro: Eh, eh, eh
You hear that yell?
Hey buddy, what was that about?
There might be beasts out stalking on this hiking mount
I’ll take another subtle step to see what that’s about
I’ll take another subtle step to see what that’s about
I gotta hunch that maybe there’s a cat about
I gotta hunch that maybe there’s a cat about
Watch it…

Verse 1: Name me, and don’t be silly
You got me foamin-mouth mad, like a grizzly
I’ll track you down, maybe you can help to stable me
I will not swallow you, if you’d just label me
You look good, I guess that means I like meat
I’m pretty sure that I got that cat mentality
So speed it up, speed it up, like a sports shoe
Or I’ll sure put you up in some good fawn-due
So it’s meat, doom, doom, meat, meat, doom?
Got that?!
Is it cougar, pum-er?
I’ll e-ven be a mountain cat!
If you’d pay attention maybe you could get a clue
I can tell the way you’re baffled got a low IQ
It’s true, there are so may names used
With over 40 English names, get you con-fused
Check it

Chorus: Pick my Order and you’ll prolly limit that amount
Take those other stupid titles, you can throw’em out
Livin’ with no label what is that about?
Givin’ me a label is so paramount
Heed my orders then you’ll maybe live through this account
And to make myself much clearer, I will have to shout
If the world weren’t lazy, I would not lash out
Make your mind up people, there’s a cat about
(There’s a cat about…)

Verse 2: Days of yore, was held in high-esteem
Was a grand sacred beast to the Cherokees
Now is it high of myself to rule up in the trees?
Well my scream brings sorrow, says the Apaches
Better get my Genus right, no errors
Not the apex in indigenous areas
But I need food, you could feed me
You’re delicious and stupid, it’s easy
So it’s me, you, you, me, me, you
All night!
I will not yearn, nocturne
I stalk my prey most every night
I might like you well done, lest you do it well
Cuz I’m predacious, if you couldn’t tell
Don’t let me stalk into this market for a useless chat
To quote Miss Tweety Bird, I am one bad “putty tat”

Chorus: Take a sample of my genome, there is scat about
I will stalk into your houses ‘til you clear my doubts
Have a light bulb idea, ‘til you burn it out
Write a song or something, just to hear it out
I’m a cougar or a puma or I’m something else
I’ll be Catty Purry if there’s truly nothing else
Think too long, then settle on a Catamount
That’s the one, you named me, I’m a Catamount!
(I’m a Catamount?)

Bridge: What’s my name? Nomenclature
My species claimed, now it’s back to nature
What’s my name? That nomenclature
I’m glad I came, I guess I’ll see you later
It’s over now! (No more shame!)
So clever (Thank you stranger!)
Come over, deer! (I’ve got a name!)
A little closer (But I’m still a danger!)
Get over here! (What’s my name!?)
Come closer! (Meet your maker!)
It’s over, deer (I love this game!)
A little closer (who knew forests catered…)

Chorus: I’m a feline of the mountain, I’m a Catamount
And what’s the value of a name? It has no cash amount
Took too long to figure I’m a Catamount
That was wrong, so tell me what was that about?
Check my Order and you’ll prolly see what I’m about
And if you walk into my forest, you will figure out
That was wrong, you’re thinkin’ there’s a cat about
Like Vermont, that campus filled of Catamounts

Chorus: Take my order and you’ll put it under Catamount
I’m so happy pull a Mraz and just scat it out
Sing a song or something about Catamounts
That’s so dumb, who’d listen to what that’s about?
I’m a feline of the mountain, I’m a Catamount
And what’s the value of a name? It has no cash amount
If the world weren’t lazy, I would not lash out
That’s the one, we’ve settled, I’m a Catamount!

IIRC, German naturalist Georg Marcgrave named it cuguac-ara which turned into cougar. Catamount comes from "cat of the mountain" or mountain lion. Painter is derived from panther for the same cat. I live in North Cali, so we occasionally get alerts of roaming mountain lions. 555 for being informative. I still have my traditional 17 Big Cat laminated poster from when I was a kid hanging in my home office. With hybrids and a valid cryptid, the number is now 21.

This was great! Can you do something with my favorite prehistoric cat the Sabertooth Lion? Maybe to Katie's "Roar?"

Not a bad parody here. I never heard of the term "Catamount" before but it's pretty cool to learn new things. Very scientific and fun.

Nice rap, the best catamount song I've ever seen :) Enjoyed this.

Your tribute to the ceremony was paramount! Never heard of The name before, so plus points there, negating the minus I give you or mistaking Tweety Bird as a female.

(Artistry) Well, since the catacougarma is not found in Australia, I think I'll just call 'em "big kitties". What are they gonna do? Fantastic parody for such an out-there topic, 555 classifications!

Actually Aggy, Tweety's gender has been debated on a few occasions. Throughout the character's existence, tweety has been referred to as both a boy and a girl in different episodes. But generally people consider tweety a male, so I'll graciously accept your mercy. Lol!

Not bad, but while I never heard the name catamount...I don't know if parody was the right way to introduce that term. More educational than anything, and it borrowed a few lines/rhymes from the original.

They can sure come with tons of nicknames.

Add another big cat- Sundra Clouded Leopard (Neofelis Diarda) from Samatra and Borneo.
