Oh, how I want to find a flat!
A nice place to stay at,
Perhaps with a fireplace and a mat
Or just a comfy place to have friends for a chat.
Oh, how I want a cat!
A cute fury friend, maybe even fat,
Or maybe even fit as an acrobat.
He will purr and I will pat
As we lay down on the mat
(In front of the fireplace in our flat)
But- oh no! Can you believe that?
Every owner of every flat-
Mr. Pratt, Mr. Bratt and even Mrs. Glatt,
Doesn’t let us have a cat!
“There will be no cat in this flat
And that’s the end of that!”
