Catnip Blues

 Lyrics and music by Marion Parsons © 2003

Inspired by the blues standard "Cocaine Blues".


Woke up this evening, mood for a trip,
All I want for supper is a roll in the nip
Oh catnip, take my last life away.

Oh catnip's a devil, and catnip's a cheat

Fall from that high, you don't land on your feet
Oh catnip, take my last life away.

Cocaine is for horses, and whiskey's for men

But 'nip is a poor old kitty's worst friend

Oh catnip, take my last life away.



My claws have gone dull, at night I can't see

The sofa tried to scratch me and the mice they play with me
Oh catnip, take my last life away.



Oh Fluffy and Mittens ain't got what I need
Don't want a tom, just wanna roll in the weed
 
Oh catnip, take my last life away.



I don't need no saucer, and no kitty treat
For just one more leaf you know I'd give up meat

Oh catnip, take my last life away.
