Down by the sea, me mates, hear me song, of a man who did brave, with cats so strong. He bought four bags, of catnip, yes, to win their trust, so they'd follow he. Now they listent yo, his every command, to him they call, as their leader grand. So raise yer glass, we'll have a toast, to the man who chose, the cats as his host!
Oh, hear me sing, of cats I lead, Giv'n 'em treats of catnip free, My life be grand, their purrs so sweet, My cats I lead with glee. It's easy now, their love I win, With catnip treats for ev'ry kin, Where'er I go, they follow me, My cats I lead so free. They come to me, in great surmise, The catnip treat is their surprise, My life be grand, their purrs so sweet, My cats I lead with glee. So, hoist the sail and raise the mast, For catnip treat I'll go in haste, Where'er I go, they follow me, My cats I lead so free.
Sailor cats all gathered 'round To hear what the leader had found He said he'd give them free catnip And he'd be the alley cats' grip He'd lead them on every chase And get them out of every place He'd make sure they all were fed And even keep them well-bed He'd keep them safe from harm And keep them away from alarm His leadership was strong and true He'd make sure the cats knew He was the best leader around He'd make sure the cats knew their ground He'd always be there to guide And his leadership they couldn't hide The cats all agreed it was true He'd be the leader they knew The cats rejoiced and they sang For this leader they would always dance!
Oh, the cats had a mission To find a leader of vision On the search for a half-feline To rule over their scene Then one day a hero did come With a head full of poems He had a plan to bring joy and glee By giving the cats their favorite thing: free catnip So the cats all said, "Hooray!" For this leader brought the perfect way To inspire cats near and far And bring joy to every star They followed his lead with vigor and zest And together they conquered all of the rest A leader of cats was born that day Thanks to the gift of free catnip, hooray!
Oh, the cats all meow and purr, When I give them the catnip they love to stir, The leader of cats I'm finally sure, Now they come back 'round for more! From all around they come a-creepin', When I pour out the catnip they all start a-leapin', I hand out the treats with no fear, The cats all come back to me year after year! I'm the leader of cats, I am so proud, Giving free catnip, these cats just can't do without, I'm in charge of the feline clan, And they follow me with no plan. For I'm the leader of cats, it's true, This is my gift for all of you, So give a meow and a purr, When I hand out the catnip, they all come a-stir!
Oh, come gather round me sailors all And listen to the tale I'll tell Of a man who with cats did bond And made them all his own He made them a promise and a vow To give them lots of catnip free No matter where they may roam Or what they may do He'd feed them and provide them with a home And keep them safe and sound Leading them with a gentle hand He'd gather them around He'd tell them stories and sing them songs And give them lots of play He'd show them love and kindness every day In their feline way And soon the cats chose him as their leader To lead them on their way For he was their captain, their king, and their friend And with catnip he'd stay!
Oh, I'm the leader of cats, my name is Meow I give away free catnip for cats to snack I know how to make them purr, I have the knack They come from near and far, just to get a crack Each cat is a friend, I treat them all the same I make sure they're happy, no one feels shame With me they can play, I'll join in their game I'm the leader of cats, it's my sweet claim to fame They meow and they purr, they rub against my feet My life is complete, I'm in a kitty treat They follow me around, no matter where I go I'm the leader of cats, I'm the catnip king Meow!
Come all ye cats, both near and far Come listen to my singing voice A grand leader I did become When I gave free catnip from the dollar store I'll lead you in your feline quest To explore the world, its joys and strife I'll show you how to live your best With every scrap of catnip in your life So come and join me on my ship Let's sail the seven seas Your whiskers will never miss a beat With my free catnip on the breeze Our voyage will be ever so grand On the high seas we'll explore And I'll show you the land of plenty Where all cats can find more So come, my feline friends To me and my ship's mast I'll be your leader from now on With free catnip at last!
Aye, the cats all heard the call Their new leader had arrived He'd give 'em free catnip, for sure And make their lives alive The cats all knew his name To their home he'd come He'd bring 'em treats and toys galore Their leader he had become He'd give 'em love, he'd give 'em care And they'd all purr and meow No one could ignore the cats The alley cats did know Their leader had arrived The cats all did cheer With catnip and toys galore He'd lead them with his cheer all the cats would mew.
