I must have had a strange dream last night: I woke up singing a song I learned in elementary school (“Senior Don Gato”–yup, song about a cat). Very bizarre. I haven’t thought about that song in years. Funny what you remember.

Oh Senior Don Gato was a cat
On a high red roof Don Gato sat
He was there to read a letter
meow meow meow
where the reading light was better
meow meow meow
‘Twas a love note for Don Gato

I adore you wrote the lady cat
who was fluffy white and nice and fat
there was not a sweeter kitty
meow meow meow
in the country or the city
meow meow meow
and she said she’d wed Don Gato

Oh Don Gato jumped so happily
He fell off the roof and broke his knee
broke his ribs and all his whiskers
meow meow meow
and his little solar pliskers (plexus)
meow meow meow
A caramba! cried Don Gato

All the doctors all came on the run
Just to see if something could be done
They held a consultation
meow meow meow
about how to save their patient
meow meow meow
how to save Senior Don Gato

But in spite of everything they tried.
Poor Senor Don Gato up and died.
O it wasn’t very merry,
meow meow meow.
Going to the cemetery,
Meow Meow Meow.
For the ending of Don Gato

When the funeral passed the market square
Such a smell of fish was in the air,
Though his burial was slated,
meow meow meow
He became reanimated,
meow meow meow
He came back to life, Don Gato.
