The Lyrics

Go to the market, get some Gravy Train
Get a harness with a nice chain
Scruffy days are gone, Rover's got a home
Good fortune just brought me a critter

I don't care how much I gotta baby him
That little critter is sure a good friend
kennel days are done, Rover's got a home
I went out and got me a critter

Well I got me a critter
And I couldn't live without him no more
Listen mister, when you pee you just gotta learn
To piddle outdoors
Anyway, yeah

Give me a bucket for the Gravy Train
Ain't got time for all of that pain
Rover got a break, now he's eatin' steak
Cause I feed the best to my critter

Well I cook for my critter cause I want him to like
The vittles he eats
Listen mister here's your chicken, here is your bacon
Cause you are a treat
Anyway, yeah

Give him a shelter from the pouring rain
He has surely gotten me trained
Lonely days are gone, Rover's got a home
I went out and got me a critter

While dogs occasionally train their owners, cats always do so. Heartworming (I meant warming) parody Royce.

outstanding and esp. heartwarming after seeing the spot in the news about all those 50+ neglected dogs and pups found in Arkansas today. 555

You're treating Rover more like a person than a critter ... except maybe for the outdoor piddling. Well done, Royce.
