Kitty had some lemon cake And the Fat Man had a pea.
The Fat Man said to Kitty I wish I had some cake
Kitty answered to the Fat Man Then you should learn to bake.
At this the Fat Man coughed and spat
to hear such rudeness from a cat.
The hissing, meeping, scratching beast He could not understand.
No manners in a talking cat requires a stern command.
He harrumphed and hawed And blinked and wheezed.
He wiggled and wobbled And slapped his knees.
A deep breath he took (his belly shook)
He stared at Kitty (who returned the look)
He said to Kitty My word old chum, we can communicate!
Your selfishness and scratchy ways have got me quite irate.
For days and days and days and days We sit here eating scones and peas.
My coffee cat you eat your cream and strawberries with feline ease.
All this time you have not shared your treats with me while I eat peas.
Peas and peas and peas and peas Peas peas peas peas
Kitty looked up at his friend He looked down at the plate of peas.
Then Kitty cleaned an ear and purred Well old Bean, next time say please!
