The Lyrics

This is in memory of Socks the White House cat who passed away last friday.
So long, Socks, farewell, Socks
The whole world misses you
Good bye, Socks, shalom, Socks
You lived your nine lives.
You were a very special cat
You were everyone's favorite pet
You made the White House feel like home
When Bill left office it wasn't the same.

So long , Socks, farewell, Socks
We had such fun with you
Good bye, Socks, shalom, Socks
Has it been nineteen years?
Feline years fly by too fast
You're part of Washington's colorful past
It's too bad pets can't live longer
Memories of you will linger.

Was Socks a Republican?...I cat say that I'm very fond of any felines...but good sentiment here.

Thanks, AFW. Socks a Republican? Not if he was Bill Clinton's cat. Bush (W) had a black cat named India who was gorgeous. Too bad she was more private than Socks.

Great job on this parody. Although I didn't like Bush Sr. (or W. for that matter), I thought that Socks the cat was very cute. He was very old, however, and old things can die very quickly. (Just try telling that to a Model T Ford enthusiast or rockhound, they wouldn't believe a word of it.) 5s.

Thanks, TJC, alvin and Andria. Socks was Chelsea Clinton's cat and lived in the White House when Bill was in office. India was Dubya's cat.

Sorry, everyone. I got Socks mistaken for Millie (Bush Sr.'s dog) or India (W.'s cat).

Thanks, Cougaress. Socks was a remarkable cat because of the way he was so nonchalant in front of the paparazzi and the way President Clinton interracted with him. He was often seen riding on the president's shoulder.
