Rebecca Black’s Lesser-Known Cat Video

Lyrics to Rebecca Black’s lesser-known (by which I mean hypothetical) cat video:
Cover art for Rebecca Black's hypothetical cat video
Ten a.m., waking up after napping
Gotta be fresh, gotta groom myself
Gotta sharpen claws, gotta scratch furniture
Sniffin’ everything, my territory
Seems to be okay, everything’s good so far
Gotta jump up to the window
Gotta look outside, I see sunshine

Nappin’ on the front porch
Sleepin’ on the back porch
Gotta make my mind up
Which nap shall I take?

There’s tuna, tuna
Gotta chow down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood, seafood
Tuna, tuna
Chowin’ down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood

Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Nom, nom, nom, nom
Crazy for the taste of seafood.

10:45, I’ve eaten all the tuna
Hearin’ a buzz, I must catch that fly
Stealth, stealth, think about stealth
I know what to do
I’m stalking, I’m stalking
The fly is on my right, now
I’m stalking, I’m pouncing
Now I’ve got it.

Nappin’ on the front porch
Sleepin’ on the back porch
Gotta make my mind up
Which nap shall I take?

There’s tuna, tuna
Gotta chow down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood, seafood
Tuna, tuna
Chowin’ down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood

Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Nom, nom, nom, nom
Crazy for the taste of seafood

Yesterday was chicken, chicken
Today it is tuna, tuna
We we we so excited
We so excited
We gonna eat it all today

Tomorrow is halibut
And salmon comes afterwards
I don’t want this seafood to end


K.C., my Kitty Cat
She’s nappin’ on the front porch (on the front porch)
On the back porch (on the back porch)
I’m shoppin’, buyin’ (yeah, yeah)
Fast lane, checkout lane
With a cart full of fish (woo!)
C’mon! In my line, man’s got coupons in front of me
Makes tick tock, tick tock, wanna scream
Check the sign, it’s express, it’s the fast lane
We need to get home, c’mon, c’mon y’all

There’s tuna, tuna
Gotta chow down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood, seafood
Tuna, tuna
Chowin’ down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood

Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Nom, nom, nom, nom
Crazy for the taste of seafood.

There’s tuna, tuna
Gotta chow down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood, seafood
Tuna, tuna
Chowin’ down on tuna
Everybody’s crazy for the taste of seafood

Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Snarfin’ it, snarfin’ it (yeah!)
Nom, nom, nom, nom
Crazy for the taste of seafood

This is not a cat blog. Really. More non-cat-related material is coming soon.

    Hilarious! Glad to see I’m not alone in writing off-the-wall song parodies. :-)

  2. nursemyra says:

    but where’s the video? c’mon… post one on youtube please

    • Laura says:

      I don’t sing — but if someone wanted to provide me with vocals, I’d be happy to put one together. And if someone wanted to just make a video and post it (subject to this license), I’d be delighted.

  3. Very funny. You had me at:
    Nappin’ on the front porch
    Sleepin’ on the back porch
    Gotta make my mind up
    Which nap shall I take?

    • Laura says:

      I actually kept hearing those lines in my head over and over as I was trying to go to sleep last night. That’s right — an earbug of a song that no one has ever sung. I amaze myself sometimes.

    HAHAHA! oh too funny!

    I loved this:

    Nappin’ on the front porch
    Sleepin’ on the back porch
    Gotta make my mind up
    Which nap shall I take?

    And I honestly copied that to paste here before looking at the comments! Uh-uh…

    Your cat has potential- lots- but I need to hear her voice and her dance moves to appreciate what your doing here. For $2,000 I can get her set up with studio time and a video…
    But even just reading it, I too, am unable to get the chorus out of mind already.

    • Laura says:

      Thank you so much! I don’t have that kind of money lying around, but I called one of my cat’s wealthy friends, and he agreed to fund the project! Unfortunately, he made the check out for $5000 by mistake, and now he’s left the country for an extended vacation. But we can still work this out — I’ll just give you the check, and you can give me $3000 back, and then we can get started on the video. I’m so excited! Fun fun fun fun!

    As a three time cat mother you have made me proud! You turned a hideous monster of an auto tuned song into a fun and cute song! Thank you! Love your blog!

  7. psychochick says:

    *slow claps and sheds a tear* I’m amazed of the time and effort you put into these song… brilliant really… brilliant…

    I could provide you vocals if you like, but honestly I have yet to listen to the original song… I’m actually dreading it because i’m a big fan of GREAT music… but you have the lyrics… and it just has to be done… i’m gonna listen to it right now, pray that my soul don’t melt…O_O

  8. Mike says:

    This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFDAIcobvkI

    This is what that song no matter the lyrics sounds like.

  9. Mike says:

    …ooooooowwwww my head hurts……

  10. Lauren says:

    Purrfect song parody. I wonder if my cat secretly sings, too.

  11. IloveRebecca says:

    You guys gotta stop making fun of her, she is a surgeon

  12. aquatom1968 says:

    I’m sorry to say that I’ve never heard of Rebecca Black, or her song. I had it on in the background whilst reading along with your lyrics… and only found myself singing along! Great post, laura!

  13. ajg says:

    I read this post weeks ago and still find myself saying, “Scarffin’ it scarffin it, yeah!” I realize your song says snarfin’, but I think I forgot that until just now.
