The Lyrics

I used the phrase "Barking up the wrong tree" the other day, and knew I had to write one around it. I debated doing this to Sedaka's slowed-down, lounge-singer 1976 remake rather than his doo-wop 1962 original, but decided it worked better this way.
ROWF!
Kitty, come on down!
ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF!
Kitty, come on down!
ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF!
Kitty, come on down!

Barking up is hard to do!

Don't take your fluff
away from me!
Now you've got me barking up this tree!
There you go, here am I, blue!
And barking up is hard to do!

Remember when
we had that fight
and I chased you all through the night?
Saw that tree, and up, you flew!
And barking up is hard to do!

They say that barking up is hard to do.
Now, I know, I know that it's true.
Come down, and we'll be friends.
Instead of barking up I wish that we were marking up again
(bass voice: our territory)

I beg of you
old pussycat!
Running 'round the yard is where it's at!
Come on, Fluffy, let's start anew!
'Cause barking up is hard to do!

(They say that barking up is hard to do.)
Now, I know, I know that it's true.
(Come down, and we'll be friends.)
Instead of barking up I wish that we were marking up again
(bass voice: our territory)

I beg of you
old pussycat!
Running 'round the yard is where it's at!
Come on, Fluffy, let's start anew!
'Cause barking up is hard to do!

ROWF!
Kitty, come on down!
ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF!
Kitty, come on down!
ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF-ROWF!
Kitty, come on down!
(repeat 'til fade)

John, that joke was a cat-astrophe.
