Mel's Last Laugh

 
 
'll tell you the story of Mel, my old cat
He wasn't too thin and he wasn't too fat
He ate like a moose but he wouldn't eat mice
The rest of the story- it isn't too nice

One day I looked down to the end of the street
And saw something messy- it wasn't too neat
The fur was all funny, the eye was all goo
The road was all runny, it got on my shoe

Poor Mel! Poor Mel !!
Rest in peace my darling!
Don't ask! Don't tell !!
Where did I go wrong?

I worried all day 'bout the grave I would dig
The shovel was dull and the hole not too big
I buried him quickly and swallowed my breath
Now cover your ears, this will scare you to death

Dinner was served in the usual dish
I poured out the cat food for Mel's sister, Trish
When suddenly Mel asked if he could butt in
He gobbled the grub and then gave me a grin

Yo...Mel! Woh..Mel !!
Who was that I buried ???
Oh, well! All's well !!
Mel' s Last Laugh is Long!!

Yes, this really happened to me
