Jazz for Razz

Written by: Andrea Dietrich

Snazzy jazzy Razzmatazzy,
new black cat of mine
curled up cozy on my bed -
what makes you so fine?

Snazzy jazzy Razzmatazzy,
small and smooth and sleek.
Guests come calling; in you slink
just to take a peek!

Snazzy jazzy Razzmatazzy,
languidly you preen.
Gaze with eyes I can't define.
Are they gold or green?

Snazzy jazzy Razzmatazzy,
now a little fat.
All you do is lay around -
I'm ok with that!

Snazzy jazzy Razzmatazzy,
as I stroke your fur,
start your rhythm warm and dear.
Bring that jazzy purr!

Snazzy jazzy Razzmatazzy,
great is my relief
that I found a pet like you
sweet beyond belief!
