"Mitizi's Cats Had Fleas"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

She had twelve in the kitchen
And a thirty-odd more
Her kitties used to yowl
Ev’ry night until four
Plop of food drew
Battalion of fur
Hop up on the table
Bunch of purring felines, all bug chauffeurs

Mitzi’s cats had fleas
They’re jumping off the tabbies
Onto carpet fibers
Mitzi’s cats had fleas
Amazing sight when the bugs would party down
And play a funky sound

She called a friend
And said, “Now come see
Bugs keepin’ time,
Funkin’ out a hot beat.”
Fleas were so phat,
They were bustin’ grooves
Echoed sounds of Memphis
And lots of Dee-troit rhythms, dancing little legs moved

Mitzi’s cats had fleas
They’d rap a little Diddy
Then a round of bluegrass
Mitzi’s cats had fleas
When on a mic all the bugs would harmonize
Then nibble on some thighs

The critters went tourin’
And they got fan mail
For their cool, jumpin’ style

Six months later,
They’re on drugs and troubled
And they went in rehab for a while
They went in rehab
For a while

It was tune full of sorrow
When the buggers did go
The music didn't last
And the money got low
Fame had price,
An end to fast lane
After kitty washin'
Fellahs found the bottom of Mitzi's drain.

Mitzi’s cats had fleas
We hear their little chorus
Soothing sounds still haunt us
Mitzi’s cats had fleas
The tunage tight, we remember lovin’ sound
Of insects throwin’ down.
There's more to bug you at The Blogging Baker.

A well-deserved 555. Now all it needs to make it complete is to have Cher singing it.... ;^)

Thanks Andy and Wendy. Much appreciated. And I think it would be cool if Cher could do a rendition of this. Even a Cher impersonator would be cool!

I love it! I imagined all these fleas in playing all the different music styles. Made me think of the CatDog episode ``Flea or Die''. Great stuff! Favorite parts : `Echoed sounds of Memphis! And lots of Dee-troit rhythms, dancing little legs moved!' Hahaha!
