Bag of Cats

He wanted to be a country star.
But with that voice he couldn't get far.

Compared to a cat with stomach pain.
Who'd ever want to hear him again?

He packed the truck got behind the wheel
So he could search for a record deal

They plugged their ears still he had some style
And you could hear that voice for a mile

What the heck they said, lets take a chance
He smiled and accepted his advance 

I guess they're looking for something new
In his case it certainly is true

Music is supposed to make you feel
I guess that's why he got the deal

I give him credit he chased his dreams
Now Freddie makes all the young girls scream


Dedicated to my friend Freddie
The title track is call The Cat Whisperer

    Everything has changed in nowadays music... There seems to be no criteria whatsoever... That is why everyone is welcome to sing as surely he/she will be followed and admired by some. All the good luck for your friend! :D

    He is not actually a singer, this is just a bit of tongue n cheek. He's wife made the cat reference and I thought there was a poem there. Thanks for commenting.
