not me two cats and a mangy dog

the rain fell outside dogs and cats Sunday was late in coming rolled over in bed played dead until a red long haired cat named Fred sat on my head and my face turned red then a stray mangy yellow dog named Yellow decided to play with me chased Fred away and decided to stay his body heat was hot and I rolled over in bed until a cool fat black cat named Frank chased Yellow outside to the riverbank Frank the cool fat black cat started to scat at the top of his range at the edge of my bed his blues went straight to my head then Yellow and Fred returned with guitar and bass and played backup to Frank while I played the bed to save face it was all going swell until my neighbors who didn’t like our chops banged a different tune on the wall and called the cops they broke down the door and took away us four along with our instruments less the bed of course into a paddy wagon we sped it was in a cell with a cot that we realized that we were hot to trot and started our prison band called not me two cats and a mangy dog
