about

A SongFight entry from sometime early in 2009. My roommate, Scott, has a cat to which he is emotionally attached in a way that probably isn't at all healthy. While I do not myself abhor animals (quite the contrary; I find them delicious), I do admit to sometimes having difficulty understanding why a rational human being would pay money to keep a walking pile of allergens in his house, one which does nothing except eat, poop, and puke on the carpet. On the other hand, I would imagine one could pose the same question about anyone willing to be my roommate. At least I pay rent, though.

lyrics

They live with us
They ain't good for nothing
We give them little treats but they don't care

They stay home all day,
And while we're working for our pay,
They shit in tiny boxes
That we keep beneath the stairs

And when we come home
We find ourselves stepping
In the vomit that they leave upon the ground

Now I feel annoyed
That my carpet was destroyed
And I still can't figure out
Why we want them around

But we keep them alive
We keep them alive
We feed them and we feed them
But damned if we know why

The hair all o'er the sofa
Makes me want to sneeze and cry
But Jesus Christ almighty
We still keep them alive

I leave my home early in the morning
And I come home tired
Round 'bout half past five

You're always sitting there
In my one and only chair
And I still don't understand
Why I keep you alive

But we keep them alive
We keep them alive
We feed them and we feed them
But damned if we know why

The hair all o'er the sofa
Makes me want to sneeze and cry
But Jesus Fuck almighty
We still keep them alive
