(The Cat Was On The Ball)
By Dan’l McILhenny
An untied shoelace
My eyes got a tip
While doin’ window shoppin’
Along the Sunset Strip
Oh what a hazardous trip
Might befall her - if she only knew
This is why I called you -
What should a bystander do?
Our feet can’t speak
But what if they could
How would they remedy this?
With some toe tappin’ code - like
Morse or Rogers or the Nicholas Brothers did
Dancin’ down the rescue road
I ought to decide…to run away or -
delight at the sound of my own two feet in the street
Then allofasudden, allofasudden,
The emergency‘s quelled
Now there’s no need for worry and fear
My mystery is solved like that!
When a cat appears near her shoes
And she notices what’s loose
A feline saves her caboose!
Well, thanks for takin’
My pondering call
I really thought the worst of it all
It felt like the writing was there on the wall
Then allofasudden, allofasudden
That cat was on the ball!
