lyrics

I wish I were a cat on a farm
Coz then I would have lots of things to pounce on
I wish I were a cat on a farm
Coz then I could sleep in the straw
I dream of being a cat on a farm

I’d start a family
Why not?
I’d start the family I haven’t got
I’d teach young junior how to run and how to jump and how to catch a bird
I’d teach him how to understand those silly humans with their silly words
We’d be a family
A loving family
A happy family
A perfect family

I wish I were a cat on a farm so then I could prowl around the ditches
I wish I were a cat on a farm pretending I’m a tiger in the wild
I dream of being a cat on a farm

I’d take my family out for lunch
We’d hear that little bluebird carcass crunch
I’d teach young junior how to steal and how to eat and how to snoop around
I’d teach him how sneak inside the pantry door without making a sound

We’d be a family of cats living on a farm
Living like the monarchy inside our palace barn
We’d take a holiday in the forest by the hill
Where there’s lots of things to chase and lots of things to kill
And then we’d pack up and say enough’s enough
Come on let’s go home
Come on let’s go home
Come on let’s go home
