Rosie is Our Cat.


Rosie is our cat

And a pretty cat at that

She likes to sit on a mat

And make like a bat;

Upon the door she knocks ‘rat-a-tat-tat!’

And she knows where she’s at;

She’s ever so small;

And you can’t say she’s fat;

She has no excess poundage,

She’s as lean a gnat;

I don’t think we’ve seen her wearing a hat;

Or dressed to the nines

In some cast off tat.
In fact, Rosie has perfect pitch

And sings in B flat;

I could say much more

But, I’ll leave it at that.

When J Cooper-Clarke Reluctantly got a Puppy for Christmas

NB Please read this in your best J C-C accent for best effect

Steaming hot or frozen cold

I pick up his poop when I am told

But, bugger this for a lark

I’m famous me, I’m John Cooper-Clarke.
