Gorgeous Gary Sea songs about cats with extra toes? (44) RE: Sea songs about cats with extra toes? 19 Jun 11


Not a sea song by any stretch, but since y'all invoked, I penned this ditty about the feline residents of the Hemingway House:

Key West Kitty
Lyrics & Music by Gary Ehrlich (c) 1/2009

Down in Key West there's a famous home
Where a writer once let some kittens roam
The old man's gone but the cats are there
You can see them lounging 'round without a care

I wanna be a Hemingway cat
Lie in the Key West sun all day
I wanna be a Hemingway cat
To see me have the tourists pay
I wanna be a Hemingway cat

I'd bask outside on the patio
Or lurk on the floor in the studio
Have people pet me and be well fed
When I'm tired, curl up on the master bed

I wanna be a Hemingway cat
I'd be the finest one so far
I wanna be a Hemingway cat
I'd be named for a movie star
I wanna be a Hemingway cat

Stalk through the trees and the gardens cool
But I'll stay away from the swimming pool!
Do things they won't let the tourists do
Sit on all the chairs, loaf on the sofas too

I wanna be a Hemingway cat
To have six toes; do what I wish
I wanna be a Hemingway cat
Dine on the finest shrimp and fish
I wanna be a Hemingway cat

-- Gary
