'Kitty In My Pillowcase'
Put my kitty in my pillows pillowcase
in oder to take him for his shots.
I tied the end of his cotton room
in a big, but fancy pillowcase knot.
He screamed an howled all the way
I tired to comfort him, but all would not
then I realized what all the fuss was about
I had gotten kitty's tail tied within the knot!
I told him, 'I'm sorry little kitty',
as I held and rocked him in my arms.
I didn't mean to make you angry
or cause your little tail any harm.
Then the vet pulled out his needle
stuck it in my kitty's little backside.
Kitty looked at me with watery eyes so big
and went back into my pillowcase to hide.
Now my Kitty won't come out for anything
I feed him in the pillowcase, he has made his home.
Now I have to sleep with my head in bed
on Kitty instead of my pillow filled with foam.
