I just want to stay; no wait I’ll go outside.
I want you to play; no way, I’ll run and hide.
Now please leave me be; been hoping that you’d pet me.
Now go away, I’ll scratch your hand if you stay.
If you touch me you will be sorry; hey don’t walk away, what’s your hurry?
Think I’ll just be pacing the floor; no, I’ll sleep here while the fireplace roars.
No really I think I’ll scurry; get me some food now hurry.
Maybe just a half a dish more, careful don’t you step on my paw.
Please let me outside; no wait I’ve changed my mind.
I’ll come back inside; no wait, I’ll go outside.
I wish I knew how – you’re getting quite testy now –
To open doors; I’ll sit in your hat, it’s mine not yours.
I ought to say go, go, go; mind if I move in closer?
At least share the chicken you fried; what’s the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can’t stay, human don’t hold out.
Ah, but it’s cold outside.
I’ve got to go roam, but human I’ll freeze out there.
I’ve got a fur coat; I’ll do as I please out there.
You’ve really been grand; I think I’ll bite your hand.
Why don’t you see, it’s always gonna be about me?
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow; think of your life-long sorrow,
If you don’t share the chicken you fried, and I starved to death and I died.
I really must stay; but I want to go out!
Ah but it’s cold outside
