Be Fabulous

Every feline is a friend of mine; worth all of my investment and time;

I say to you who know me well; there's a story here that someone's got to tell.

Last night there were four tabbies; tonight there are just two

There was Tabby Sam, and Tabby Lou, Tabby me, and you.

 

We're innocent of any crime; so why the bars, why are we doing time?

Chilled to the bone, still very young; I'm terrified, almost numb.

In a shelter now, but they say No; the shelter's full; we are marked to go.

They can't leave us in the wild, having child after child.

 

Chorus

Wouldn't it be fabulous? If you passed legislation that addressed the situation?

Wouldn't it be fabulous? If every kitten had a home; and no cat was left to roam?

Wouldn't it be fabulous? If spay and neuter dates, they were never missed

I'd be on a kitten waiting list! Yeah, I'd be on a kitten waiting list!

 

We're healthy, but we have no home; we were dumped and left to roam

I'm a loving soul - with much to give - I'm only asking you to Let Me Live

It's later now; we're on Death Row; half of us have to go

I just need love; I just need time - I promise you that I'll be fine

 

Don't look at me like you don't know - I'm trembling now; does my fear show?

I can only cry, and ask you why - Sam got adopted; why can't I? I'm just a little shy

If you'd fixed us all when we were small, there'd be an answer to my call

If you'd been wise, and sterilized - I would not have to be - euthanized.

 

Chorus

 

Every feline is a friend of mine; worth all of my investment and time;

And I say to you who know me well; there's a story here that someone had to tell.

Last night there were four tabbies; tonight there are just two

There was Tabby Sam, and Tabby Lou, Tabby me, and you.
