Senor Don Gato

 I was just chillin at the office doing some work when my colleague started humming a song and my brain took over and i started singing it. I could not believe i still knew the words to the song. It was a song i had known when i was a child and i could remember it vividly 'cos that was the first time i ever heard the word 'solar plexus' and i had a very active imagination so i had imagined all the things that happened to the cat in the song.
Here is the song.enjoy.


Oh Señor Don Gato was a cat,
Meow
On a high red roof Don Gato sat.
Meow
He went there to read a letter,
Meow, meow, meow
Where the reading light was better,
Meow, meow, meow
T'was a love note for Don Gato.
How he adored the lady cat, (alternate line: "I adore you," wrote the lady cat.)
Meow
Who was fluffy, white, and nice and fat.
Meow
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 merrily,
Meow
He fell off the roof and broke his knee.
Ow!
Broke his ribs and all his whiskers,
Meow, meow, meow
And his little solar plexus,
Meow, meow, meow
Aye caray!!! cried poor Don Gato. (alternate line: "Ay carramba!" cried Don Gato.)

Well the doctors all came on the run,
Meow
Just to see if something could be done.
Meow
And they held a consultation,
Meow, meow, meow
About how to save their patient,
Meow, meow, meow
How to save Señor Don Gato.

But in spite of everything they tried,
Meow
Poor Señor Don Gato up and died.
Meow
Oh it wasn't very merry,
Meow, meow, meow
Going to the cemetery,


















Meow, meow, meow
For the end of poor Don Gato. (alternate line: For the ending of Don Gato.)
As the funeral passed the market square,
Meow
Such a smell of fish was in the air.
Meow
Though the funeral was slated,
Meow, meow, meow
He became re-animated,
Meow, meow, meow
He came back to life Don Gato.
(optional refrain: For he had nine lives, Don Gato.)

I had to google it to remember the 3rd stanza though.lol.it definitely brought back some good ol' memories i did not know was tucked away.


P.S i don't like cats, they give me the creeps especially when i see them at night.but i love me some Puss in Boots anytime!lmcbo
