Mingulay Cat Song

by Marc Gunn

It all started with my cat Jenga and a sippy cup left on the table when my daughter went off to daycare. I came home to find juice all over the floor. Why do cats have this insatiable need to knock liquid over?

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It all started with my cat Jenga and a sippy cup left on the table when my daughter went off to daycare. I came home to find juice all over the floor.
Why do cats have this insatiable need to knock liquid over? Are they thirsty? Or is there a scientific reason that explains these crazy cats. I'll sing to you what I think...

Oh! Make sure you check out the early version of the song.

Mingulay Cat Song Lyrics
Lyrics Marc Gunn, music traditional

Little girl holds a full sippy cup
Only drinks half of the juice up
She leaves for school then the bottle lands with a splash
Your paws get sticky on the floor

* See the glass cats
Watch it splash cats
See the liquid roll off of the table
See your human
In their socks cats
As they step in the puddle you made

Humans watching TV distracted
Or they leave to use the bathroom
Jump up on the coffee table
Knock the milk down and lick it up

Ice cold glass of water at bedtime
Set it down not far from the pillow
Tongue can't reach it at two in the morning
So knock it down, then you're satiated.

What care we if they're done drinking
What we care about is physics in motion
Tap the glass cats, watch it jiggle
If it doesn't tip over, then knock it again
