Uptown Puss

Sung to the tune of Billy Joel's Uptown Girl

Uptown puss
She's been known for lots of fuss and cuss
I bet she never had a back street cat
I bet her agent is to blame for that

I'm gonna try for that uptown puss
If I get her, that's a real big plus
As long as I stay real nice and calm
And now she's lookin' for a downtown tom
Don't tell her mom!

And when she says that
I'm not Johnny Depp
I'll show her I can
take the next big step

She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an uptown puss
You know she's the one I'd like to discuss
She never tires of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's makes some noise.

Uptown puss
I can only afford the metro bus
But maybe when she's feeling a wee bit down
I'll get her to come around
But will she frown?

And when she's stalking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love
With an uptown puss
If I get her, that's a real big plus
As long as I stay real nice and calm
And now she's looking for a downtown tom
Don't tell her mom!

Uptown puss
She's my uptown puss
You know I'm in love
With an uptown puss

(Derby issued a challenge for us to come up with a song about other cats in the blogosphere. To find out more, click here!)
