No lie-in when there is a cat around
Purring loudly in my ear
Purr, purr, purring loudly in my ear,
Purr, purr, purring tells me she is here.
It may be early in the morning,
But she tells me the sun is dawning.
That my attention she does now need,
That it is time for her to have her feed.
Stiffly, stiffly, do I climb out of bed,
Stiffly, stiffly, do I ensure she gets fed.
Then quietly I try to sneak away,
So I can rest some more on this new day.
However I failed in fooling her,
As on this page she sits going purr, purr.
