Me Ow Meow

2013 Garrett Clevenger

 

Em    Am    F  C  B7                        "Meow meow" said the pussy cat as she strutted down the street.

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         The tom cat in the alley dropped the rat he was to eat.

F  C  F  C  B7  Em  B7  Em              The pussy twitched her furry tail that stuck up in the air.

F  C  B7  Em  F  Am  B7                  Then laid down to roll around and towards the tom did stare.

 

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         Her suitor sniffed to see if she was prowling for a mate.

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         She purred and flirted knowingly, wanting a hot date.

F  C  F  C  B7  Em  B7  Em              The tom cat howled his longing cry as he approached in haste.

F  C  B7  Em  F  Am  B7                  His fuzzy lovely pussy friend stayed to let him taste.

 

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         Their shadows were a jumbled mess as the street light shown above.

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         It looked like they were fighting, not making sweet love.

F  C  F  C  B7  Em  B7  Em              He bit her neck to hold her still. She screamed out a meow.

F  C  B7  Em  F  Am  B7                  It wasn't what she bargained for but liked it anyhow.

 

Chorus:

F    G    C  Em  Am                             The tom cat and the pussy. Two ships in the night.

F    G    Am  Em  C                             The birdies and the buzzing bees. The things that give delight.

F    G    C  Em  Am                             They get it then they let it go without the thought of pain.

C    G    F                                             If only this here story teller only felt the same.

 

F      Em  x 4

 

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         A dog barked in the distance, a night bird flew close by.

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         A street bum searched a garbage can with a twinkle in his eye.

F  C  F  C  B7  Em  B7  Em              He pulled a dented can of beans out from the stinky trash.

F  C  B7  Em  F  Am  B7                  The cats ignored the city sounds as the bum increased his stash.

 

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         As quickly as it all began the pussy ran away.

Em    Am    F  C  B7                         She got what she wanted, she wasn't going to stay.

F  C  F  C  B7  Em  B7  Em              The tom cat was contented, though, at least for the time being.

F  C  B7  Em  F  Am  B7                  At least he wasn't the lost bum or the other humans being.
