Just Don't Kick the Cat

Album: The Merry Pirate School

Lyrics

v1) I woke up Monday morning feelin’ kinda mean and mad The honest truth is I didn’t know what was makin’ me feel bad As I stomped off across the floor I heard a voice from the kitchen door (it was my mom) “It’s okay to be angry, just don’t kick the cat!”

CH: It’s okay to be angry, just don’t kick the cat No need to keep the things you feel all stuffed inside your hat We all have problems sometimes, there’s no shame in that It’s okay to be angry, just don’t kick the cat

v2) I hated to admit it, but I knew that my mom was right Feeling sad and small inside doesn’t make it okay to fight She said “Words are the thing to use if you wake up with the blues...” It’s okay to be angry, just don’t kick the cat

CHORUS

v3) The fact is cats are people, too, cuz the cats are you and me And the truth about us cats all boils down to this, you see My right to swing my foot ends where the next cat begins It’s okay to be angry, just don’t kick the cat

CHORUS
