title song of the CD "DIFFERENT FROM THE REST"



when you rub your fuzzy face on mine, it turns me inside out
you seem to think you’re the queen of the world and in my mind, there’s no doubt
even though it looks like there is no one home when I gaze into your eyes
you don’t fool me, I know you’re a somebody in a furry disguise

but I say, “you are my kitty and I am your human”
I always tell you, you’re the best
because I know that you expect to hear that you are
somehow different from the rest

“more food, more food, more food, more food” is your constant complaint
“can’t you see you’re starving me” you comment with little restraint
“more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, more food, it must be absolutely fresh”
you’ve got a figure like a barrel, still you’re rubbing out your request

because you are my kitty and I am your human
sometimes I wonder who’s really in control
I know you let me think I’m the one who calls the shots
as you’re herding me to your dinner bowl

in and out, in and out, you’re at the door one more time
in or out, out or in, you just can’t make up your mind

but I get the big payoff when you consent to sit on my lap
when you’re curled up- warm and fuzzy- taking yet another nap
the way you let me hold you- sometimes- as long as I don’t cling
the way you sit beside me when you like the way I sing

you are my kitty and I am your human
you’ve seen me at my worst and at my best
seems no matter what I do, you remain unimpressed..
but I know you think that somehow, I am different from the rest
