The Kitties That Groom in the Spring (Tra La)



The kitties that groom in the spring (tra la)
Spend way too much time on the face.
Perhaps it's a strange feline thing, tra la
Avoiding a less sav'ry place.

And that's why they purr and they rub on your leg,
Additional grooming from you-ming they beg,
Tra la la la la, tra la la la la
The kitties that groom in the spring.


The kitties that groom in the spring (tra la)
You think they'd shed less on your chair.
But no, gobs of fur they all bring, tra la
And most on your butt you will wear.


And that's why, no matter what color you wear
You'll find it entwined with some contrasting hair.
Tra la la la la, tra la la la la
The kitties that groom in the spring.



The kitties that groom in the spring (tra la)
Wear dreadlocks from cold winter nights.
It's no Rastafarian thing, tra la.
It's more of a long hair cat blight.

And so no Bob Marley and no red red wine
Will do much to make the removal feel fine.
Tra la la la la, tra la la la la
The kitties that groom in the spring.


The kitties that groom in the spring (tra la)
Barf hairballs on places once clean
One wonders how all that hair fits, tra la
As big as a ripe nectarine.


And that’s why when walking in footsies all bare
Escaping the barf, well, you don’t have a prayer.
Tra la la la la, tra la la la la
The kitties that groom in the spring.
