Cat thought being a cat was so cool
Till he discovered indignity of the fur ball
Dog thought being a dog was so cool
Till he realised he could lick his own arse.
They all knew where it was at
They all knew it was a fact
They were the way they were
Perfect yet imperfect.
The Johnny Light Show Band played the coolest stuff
Every Saturday night, the Town Hall grooved
Couples crammed the dance floor
The infectious beat storming up the room.
All night they played, everyone stayed
The music mesmerised, steps were innovated
Relationships formed just on the night
A new partner dancing your style hung on your arm.
It was the perfect end to any busy week
Let your head go, these were the coolest cats
Johnny’s sax shrilled through the night
One pair got down and with it there and then.
The floor cleared as the spectacle began
Not unusual said one to see them go that way
As feet flashed the tempo increasing
Oblivious to their audience they boogied on.
Cat saw the woman come home, shoes in hand
Dog watched the man, dishevelled, worn out
Woman fell upon the bed, a drunken slumber
Man pissed in the kitchen tidy, slurred hello.
Cat thought fur balls weren’t as bad as woman’s state
She licked herself clean as woman snored
Dog shuddered thinking of man’s fat ugly arse
Licked itself thinking how cool its life really was.
