Shared Responsibility

La droga es un placer engañoso, artificial.

Y por ser una fuente de placer de origen externo
hay que conseguirlo, comprarlo.

La producción, comercialización, y compra de droga
forman un circulo vicioso infernal.

Destruye la fauna y flora donde se produce,
contamina los recursos circundantes.

Expropia las comunidades indígenas de los territorios
donde se cultivan.

Corrompe conciencias,
las del ciudadano del común, y en las altas esferas.

Le brinda poder a grupos delincuenciales.

Destruye a los consumidores,
Destruye a sus familias.


La responsabilidad debe ser compartida.


Si se ataca la capacidad productora de nuestro país,
También hay que acabar con la demanda del producto,
tanto externa como interna.

Quien consume es igual de responsable
de TODOS los problemas que giran en torno a las drogas.

Aspirar cocaína
es aspirar las cenizas de cientos de muertos
por la violencia que causa su producción y comercialización.

Aspirar cocaína
es aspirar las cenizas de cientos de hectareas de bosques y su fauna
que se talan y queman para abrirle campo a los cultivos de coca.

La droga no es un verdadero placer, la droga no es una libertad,
la droga no es una legítima necesidad,
no es libre desarrollo de la personalidad...

La droga es esclavitud.








Dr Alban - No Coke

(Prrr) 'cause when I come I come rough, rough...

(Prrr)

Don't get no coke
Don't get no coke
Don't get no coke, coke

Don't get no coke

Don't get no shit, no want it!

No man...
Me no want it!

2 o'clock on a friday mornin'
Come a gun man
Come a knife man

Knife of a bouncer
Mash of the cars
On the run Mr. come a -King's street-

There he was arrested, and tested
And the drugs he had on him
He confested

Mi callin' on the youth in his country
Whole heap of boys
Whole heap of girls

Drug abuse is a dangerous thing
Stay out of drugs
and stop the violence

Inna this hard time
you have abused drug
Listen what 'ya say
and hear and my point of view

To much drugs
you can go mental

Da say Dr.
Alban tellin' everybody

We no want no coke, no heroin
No hash-hash, no amphetamin


/ Cocain will blow your brain
And ecstasy
Will mash your life! /

(Come!... Come!..)

Drug pushing is a serious thing
One time, two time
they make a million

Take all the money a run a foreign country
Build a big house
Buy a big limousine

That's why I man come
So you for do the right thing
That's why Jah, Jah send me
To tell them the truth

Cause is a disgrace
To the human race
Some are flyin' very high
And some are flyin' very low

Could not differenciate
What is right from wrong

We no wan't no cocain, no heroin
no hash, hash, no anfetamin
no marihuana plantating inna my yard


/ Cocain will blow your brain
And ecstasy
Will mash your life! /

(Come!)

We have one friend
them a call him Denniz Pop
Him have a little son
them a call him Daniel

Him live inna two roomed
inna Stockholm City
One color TV, two stereo

He is a DJ-Producer of higher quality
Him no deal with booze and abuse of drug
That's why me give him thanks
and praise Jah, Jah knows

We play heavy rhythm inna dance hall style
Hip-hop reggae, soul, funk and blues

Why
crack in the morning
crack in the evening
crack in the night
and crack non-stop?

We no want no coke no heroin

/ Cocain will blow your brain
And ecstasy
Will mash your life! /

(Come!)

Don't get...

Rednex - Riding Alone


Rednex es una banda sueca pero que toca musica Country
del Campesinado Sureño de los Estados Unidos
con un toque moderno Eurodance.

Su nombre es una palabra homófona a Rednecks (Cuellos rojos)
haciendo alusión al color que toman los cuellos de los campesinos
al trabajar por largas jornadas bajo el sol.






/ I'm riding in the desert
'til I'm heading into nowhere
The sun is showing me the way
I'm riding alone

I'm looking for adventures
'cause I left my girl in texas
I'm a stranger
and I'm riding alone /

My baby's on his way
and he's got nowhere to stay
and I wonder what his thinking
on his own

He's promised me his heart
and he says he really loves me
and I'll marry him as soon he's
coming home


(chorus)


Working as a waitress
the saloon is never empty
I got so many suitors all around

Although some are very handsome
They will never get my hand
because I'm waiting for my cowboy to come home


I'm riding in the desert
'til I'm heading into nowhere
The sun is showing me the way
I'm riding alone

I'm looking for adventures
'cause I left my girl in texas
I'm a stranger
and i'm riding alone


He's riding in the desert
and he's heading into nowhere
The sun is showing him the way
He's riding alone

He's looking for adventures
'cause he's left his girl in texas
He's a stranger
and he's riding alone


I'm riding in the desert
'til I'm heading into nowhere
The sun is showing me the way
I'm riding alone

I'm looking for adventures
'cause I left my girl in texas
I'm a stranger
and I'm riding alone

Heroes - Wallflowers

¡Todos podemos ser heroes!

Cuando vencemos nuestro egoísmo
y pensamos más bien en los demás

Cuando somos más fuertes que nuestras pasiones
y somos más inteligentes que las excusas

Cuando apoyamos una causa justa
y logramos vencer nuestros miedos

Cuando decimos la verdad
y hacemos lo que tenemos que hacer

Todos podemos ser heroes por un día...

Cada día.






I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
Like dolphins can swim

Though nothing
Nothing will keep us together
We can beat them
For ever and ever

Oh, we can be heroes
Just for one day


I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing
Nothing will drive them away

We can be heroes
Just for one day
We can be us
Just for one day


I, I remember
Standing... by the wall
the guns... that shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall

And the shame
Was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them
For ever and ever

Oh, we can be heroes
Just for one day

/ We can be heroes... / (x3)

Just for one day

Singing in the rain - Gene Kelly

¿Llueve?

No hay problema si llevas el sol en tu corazón...

;-)



Don: Good night, Kathy. See you tomorrow.

Kathy: Good night, Don. Take care of that throat.
You’re a big singing star now, remember?
This California dew is just a little heavier than usual tonight.

Don: Really? From where I stand,
the sun is shining all over the place.


/ Duri, ru, Du
Duri, Duri, Du
Duri, Duri /

Duri, ru, Du
Duri, Duri, Du
Duri, Du, da...

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again

I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love

Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face

I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain

Dancin' in the rain

Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah

I'm happy again!

I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain!

I'm dancin' and singin' in the rain...

Musical Plagiarism?

Yo opino que el Plagio Musical puede ser adrede o sin querer.

La verdad estas tres canciones me suenan muy parecidas...
¿Ustedes que opinan?

La verdad me quedo con las tres.
Las tres me gustan ;-)

Escuchen y juzguen ustedes:

Proyecto Uno - Te Dejaron Flat* (1996)



The Emotions - Best Of My Love (1977)



Mariah Carey - Emotions
(1991)



The Emotions - Best Of My Love
(La 'mamá' de las otras 2 canciones)

Doesn't take much
to make me happy
and make me smile and live
Never never will I feel discouraged
Cause our love's no mystery

Demonstrating love and affection
That you give so openly, yeah
I like the way you make me feel
about you baby
Want the whole wide world to see


Whoa whoa, you got the best of my love (x3)

Whoa whoa, you've got the best of my love


Goin' in and out of changes
The kind that come around each day
My life has a better meaning
Love has kissed me in a beautiful way

And oh, yeah (my love, my love)
oh, yeah (my love, my love)


oh you got the best of my love

Whoa whoa, you've got the best of my love (x3)


Demonstrating sweet love and affection
That you give so openly yeah
The way I feel about ya baby can't explain it
Want the whole wide world to see

Ohhh but in my heart
You're all I need
You for me and me for you
ohhh, it's growin' every day
ooooh

/ ohhh, oh oh oh oh oh
you've got the best of my love /

/ ohhh, givin' you the best of my love
my love ohh my love /

ohhh, oh oh oh oh oh
you've got the best of my love


Mariah Carey - Emotions

CHORUS:
You've got me feeling emotions
Deeper than I've ever dreamed of
You've got me feeling emotions
Higher than the heavens above

I feel good, I feel nice
I've never felt so satisfied
Thank the Lord I'm alive
Entoxicated, flying high

It feels like a dream
When you touch me tenderly
I don't know if it's real
But I like the way I feel inside

(REPEAT CHORUS)

In the morning when I rise
You are the first thing on my mind
And in the middle of the night
I feel your heart beat
Next to mine

It feels like a dream
When you love me tenderly
I don't know if you're for real
But I like the way I feel inside

(REPEAT CHORUS)

You know the way to make me lose control When you're looking into my eyes
You make me feel so high

(REPEAT CHORUS)

*Flat:
Desinflado, como llanta sin aire. Plano.

Frases en Inglés de la canción de Proyecto Uno:

So, what's up baby?...

you tell me!..

Say: Worried.
Worried
oh, te dejaron flat...

ah... just sing with me then...

ah... Think, you gonna play me out this time? (this time?)
Think, you'll go leave me stinking?
Think, you'll go hurt me?
Think, I have what you been drinking...

you tell me now!..

(why)
(you)
(break down?)

pick it up! (pick it up)!
pick it up! (pick it up)!
pick it up! (pick it up)!

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - Songs


O Brother,
where
Art
Thou?


La buena música no conoce fronteras, no discrimina...





John Hartford - I am a Man of Constant Sorrow



(In constant sorrow through his days)

I am the man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.
(The place where he was born and raised)

For six long years I've been in trouble
No pleasures here on earth I found
For in this world I'm bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now.

[chorus] He has no friends to help him now

It's fare thee well my old lover
I never expect to see you again
For I'm bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I'll die upon this train.

[chorus] Perhaps he'll die upon this train.

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.

[chorus] While he is sleeping in his grave.

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face you'll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
I'll meet you on God's golden shore.

[chorus] He'll meet you on God's golden shore


___________________________________

A pesar de ser canciones de temas tristes,
estas permitían desahogar las penas
de quienes las cantaban.

Como dice el dicho...
"El que canta... sus penas espanta"

Algunas a pesar de su contenido tenían ritmos alegres,
como la que acaban de escuchar.

Ese tipo de canciones
solían entonarlas emigrantes que viajaban a tierras extrañas
o los esclavos negros de Norte América,
las cuales cantaban en su duras jornadas de laboreo
(lQue dieran después origen a la música Blues),
como la que oirán en este enlace:

Rivers of Babylon - Boney M




/ By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion /

/ (When the wicked)
Carried us away in captivity
Require from us a song
Now, how shall we sing the Lord's song
in a strange land? /



/ Let the words of our mouths
and the meditation of our hearts
be acceptable in Thy sight
here tonight /


/ By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion /



By the rivers of Babylon
(the waters of Babylon)

there we sat down
(You got to sing a song)

ye-eah we wept
(Sing a song of love)

when we remember Zion
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

By the rivers of Babylon
(by the rivers of Babylon)

there we sat down
(You hear the people cry)

ye-eah we wept
(They need their God)

when we remember Zion
(Ooh, got the power)

By the rivers of Babylon
(oh yeah yeah)

where we sat down
(yeah yeah)

Ye-eah we wept ...

El Debarge - Who's Johnny?

Excelente canción de la banda sonora
de la película Corto Circuito:





There she goes and knows I'm dying
when she says: "Who is Johnny?"

Games with names that girl is playing
all she says is: "Who is Johnny?"

I tried to understand because I'm people too
And playing games is part of human nature

My heart's in overdrive, it's great to be alive!

"Who's Johnny?"
she said, and smiled in her special way
"Johnny"
she said, "you know I love you"
"Who's Johnny?"
she said, and tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away
Alright, oh yeah

She makes sure I see her teasing
hear her say: "Who is Johnny?"

There's no way today is easy
hear her say: "Who is Johnny?"

I really couldn't help but fall in love with her
Her being there has made my life worth living
I knew it from the start, that I would lose my heart!

"Who's Johnny?"
She said and smiled in her special way
"Johnny,"
she said, "you know I love you"
"Who's Johnny?"
she said and tried to look the other way
still pretending

"Who's Johnny?" (x2)

Wow-oooh, oh, no...

"Who's Johnny?" (x2)

Oh no-no-no-no, i don't believe it
"Who's Johnny?" she said
and tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

(Girls like her) Are very special girls
(Girls like her) Don't rest

'Till, 'Till you too are a believer
'Till you too have caught their fever

Who-who-who-...

"Who is Johnny?"

There she goes and knows I'm dying
when she says:

"Who is-who-who is"

"Who's Johnny?"
She said and smiled in her special way
"Johnny,"
she says, "you know I love you"
"Who's Johnny"
she says and tried to look the other way
Her eyes gave her away

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

That girl's pretending she can't remember my name

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

Oh, I can't believe it

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

I know this girl is only teasing
"Who's Johnny?"
she said, She walked at me with someone else
And left me standing there, ooo-oooh

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

It isn't love?...

"Who's Johnny?" (x3)

"Johnny come with me"

"Who's Johnny?"

Gee! Exclamación similar a Yeah!

Live

Live tiene dos pronunciaciones: 'Liv' y 'laiv'

La pronunciación 'Liv' se usa cuando Live actúa como verbo.

La puedes recordar
porque empieza igual que Living... (Verbo en Gerundio).

Y La otra,

'Laiv' cuando Live actúa como adjetivo.
(Algo o alguien vivo; o algo en vivo).

La puedes recordar
porque suena de manera similar al sustantivo Life... (Laif)



Aquí están dos versiones de la misma canción.

La primera grabada en estudio,

y la segunda cuando la cantaron -En Vivo- (Live):


Superchick - We Live (Live) [ui liv (Laiv)]



There's a cross
on the side of the road
Where a mother lost a son
How could she know?
that the morning he left
Would be the last time
she'd trade with him
for a little more time

She could say
she loved him one last time
And hold him tight
But with life we never know
When we're coming up to
the end of the road

So what do we do then
with tragedy around the bend?


/ We live we love
We forgive and never give up
Cuz* the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love /


There's a man
who waits for the tests
To see if the cancer
has spread yet
And now he asks:
"So why did I
wait to live till it was time to die?"

If I could have the time back...
How I'd live?

Life is such a gift

So how does the story end?
Well this is your story
and it all depends

So don't let it become true
Get out and do
what we were meant to do


/ We live we love
We forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love /


Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The weather in life outside is storming

But what would it take
for the clouds to break
For us to realize
each day is a gift
Somehow?
Someway?

So get our heads up out of the darkness
And spark this new mindset
and start to live life cuz it ain't gone yet
And tragedy is a reminder
to take off the blinders, and wake up

and live the life
we're supposed to take up
Moving forward with all our heads up

cuz life is worth living


We live we love
We forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love (x4)


*Cuz = 'Cause = Because

Sometimes I wonder
How I'd ever make it through
Through this world without having you
I just wouldn't have a clue

Like this world's closing in on me
And there's no way of breaking free

When I see you smile
Baby, when I see you smile at me


Baby there's nothing in this world
that could ever do
What a touch of your hand can do
It's like nothing that I ever knew (He... Hey!)

And when the rain is falling
I don't feel it
'cause you're here with me now

And one look at you baby!

Is all I'll ever need!

Human Rights




Los niños también tienen derechos,
derecho a la libre opinión, a la libertad de pensamiento,
claro con una orientación adecuada de sus padres,
pero una alienación y control abusivo del estado sería el colmo:

See the sun - The Kooks

¿Te ha pasado?
caminas con alguién,
van juntos,
pero cada persona va en lo suyo,
pensando en lo suyo...

Uno tal vez ama al otro,
pero ese otro
a su vez ama a alguien más...

Uno da todo de sí por esa persona
mientras el otro ve la relación
sin ese grado de importancia,
una relación desechable...

Vienen quejas, reclamos,
el distanciamiento,
y los 'Te extraño'...

Solo te queda esperar
hasta que llegue el día
en que encuentres a alguien,
a quien valorar y que tambien te valore,
alguien con quien compartir
cada amanecer,
ver cada nueva salida de sol...




Oh, you can have it all
and wrap it in the world
You can have everything

You can have love
and lots of other things
To make you think

But when it all comes down to you girl
Yeah no matter what you do

Take a look at yourself and realize

I've been good to you...
I've been good to you...

Oh no!
I didn't mean to say what I...
did say

All about lovers and how...
they should lay

Oh, that was never for me to...
say and say

Don't you see now how I pay?

I see the sun rising
And all you see is its
fall, fall, fall


So, come on up!
Wasn't to you said life was like a...
plastic cup?

Oh, to be used and then...
then disposed of

Yeah, but that's no way to live a l...
life like yours

Don't you see now how I pay?

I see the sun rising
And all you see its
fall, fall, fall


/ For all the times I never, never turned away
And now she's there on someone else's arm /


/ For all the times I never, never turned away
And now she's there on someone else's arm /

Writing Tips - Beautiful - Alright - Already

A veces suele confundirse la escritura
de la palabra Full (lleno, lleno de) con la de la terminación -ful
que tienen palabras como:

Careful (Lleno de cuidado, o cuidadoso)
Painful (Lleno de dolor, o doloroso)
Peaceful (Lleno de paz, o pacífico)
y Beautiful (Lleno de belleza o Hermoso)

Y aunque parte del significado de cada palabras es debido a la palabra 'full'
hay que tener en cuenta que en este tipo de palabras
se escriben en la parte final con solo una 'L'.


Espero que este artículo les haya sido 'Useful'.

;-)





It´s a beautiful world
It´s a beautiful day
The sun is shining to my heart
Every morning in every day

/ It´s a beautiful world
It´s a beautiful day
The sun is shining to my heart
Every moments in every way /

/ I see no reasons to cry
I feel no reasons to run
Just look inside your lonely heart
Open your eyes you´ll see the sun /



Algo similar sucede con All
cuando se une a algunas palabras para formar una sola
perdiendo una 'L':

All Right - Alright
(Palabras de significado similar: ¡Todo Bien!, o... ¡Bien! ¡De acuerdo!)



Y estas otras de diferente significado:

All readyTodo está Listo!)
Already = Ya, Ya está (Que Ya está hecho)


Frases para aprender dos frases parecidas con significados diferentes:

All right, already! ¡De acuerdo, ya está! (¡Está bien, ya está!)


Already alright! Ya está (todo) bien!


Are you alright? (¿Estás bien?)




Yolanda Adams - Already Alright

I want to start things out
by giving testimony
Cause one of my friends
got ill seriously

Now the doctor told him
aint no way you gone' live
But he prayed his prayer in faith
And a miracle appeared


It's already, alright!
It's already, alright!


And all you got to do is
Just bow your head down
Just bow and pray
And then give it all up
And know everything's gonna be okay

Just throw your hands up
And then wave them left to right
And then do your dance child
Cause it's all right already!

Always sorrounded by negativity
This might be where I live
But it aint gonna change me

Gotta work on my mind
And keep my actions pure
And when I stumble
I know who has the cure

So any time your feeling down
Just lift your voice in praise

It'll pick you right up
And you can come to Him
dont be afraid!

Anytime , day or night
He can give you what you need
And if you pray your prayer in faith

And in your heart believe that!


It's already, alright!
It's already, alright!


When life's problems get you down
Can't find no peace nowhere around
Trust in the spirit you can't see
Its bout to bring you your relief

Go ahead and cry now, Its all right
Cause now you're cryin tears of joy
This life aint hurting you no more

Cause you know its all ready alright!

It's all ready alright! (Oh yes, it is!)
It's all ready alright!

Reading - A Most Unusual Cat - Adriana Liliana Hernandez Nuñez - SENA's Student






A Most Unusual Cat

The lion is a very different creature from the house cat that may be sitting on your lap right now. Not only is a lion a lot bigger than a domestic cat, it can do something that smaller cats cannot. A lion can roar. In fact, lions make the loudest sound of any cat, big or small. A lion’s roar can be heard as far away as 5 miles (8 kilometers)!

Lions are not just different from their smaller relatives, but from other big cats, as well. Most cats prefer to live and hunt alone, getting together only for mating. Lions, on the other hand, are very social. They live together in groups called prides.

A pride consists of several related females and their cubs, plus at least two to four adult males. When the cubs grow up, some of the young females stay in the pride with their mother, aunts, and sisters. Other females leave to form their own prides. All the young males leave when they are about three years old. They wander around looking for a new pride to join. A pride usually has about fifteen members but it can have as few as four lion or as many as forty.

Lions are the only members of the cat family whose males and females do not look alike. In addition to being bigger than the female, the male lion has an impressive mane that makes him look even larger than he actually is. The male’s main job is to defend the pride’s territory and protect the females against intruders, so it helps to look as big and scary as possible. Without his showy mane, the male lion would be just another cat.

Electric City - Black Eyed Peas

¡Me mataste con ese regalo!

A veces abstraemos lo bueno
de palabras que usualmente tienen un significado negativo,
con el fin de resaltar la fuerza de un sentimiento.

Es por eso que las palabras deben mirarse en contexto
y no siempre de manera literal:


Esa chica me trae loco...
She drives me crazy!

Wow! your car is Bad! Its Sound System is Terrific!


Hey, súbele a los bajos y a las ondas subsónicas de tus parlantes

That's 'Amore' - Dean Martin

Canta en Inglés...
Y aprende algunas palabritas en Italiano (En cursiva):




In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl
here's what they say:

/ When the moon hits your eyes
like a big pizza pie
That's amore!

When the world seems to shine
like you've had too much wine
That's amore!

Bells will ring:
ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing: Vita bella!*

Hearts will play:
tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella (Lucky Fella!)


When the stars make you drool
just like a pasta fazool
That's amore!

When you dance down the street
with a cloud at your feet
You're in love!

When you walk in a dream, but you know
you're not Dreaming signore!

Scuzza me, but you see
back in old Napoli
That's amore! /

Amore!
That's Amore!


*Vida Bella!

Manic Monday - Bangles




Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream

I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream

But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess: I just won't get paid

These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made


CHORUS:
It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My 'I don't have to run day'
It's just another manic Monday


Have to catch an early train
Have to be to work by nine

And if I had an airplane
I still couldn't make it on time

'Cause it takes me so long
Just to figure out what I'm gonna wear

Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there


CHORUS


All of my nights
Why did my lover have to pick
last night to get down?

Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed both of us
Employment's down

He tells me in his bedroom voice:
C'mon honey, let's go make some noise!

Time it goes so fast (When you're having fun)


/ CHORUS /

The Cat Came Back - Cisco Houston

A veces hemos oído historias sobre como algunas mascotas
saben muy bien como regresar a casa. Esta es una de ellas...





The Cat Came Back
Cisco Houston


Well old Mr. Johnson

had troubles all his own
He had an old yellow cat
that wouldn't leave home

Tried everything he knew
to get the cat to stay away
Even took him up to Canada
and told him for to stay


Chorus:
But the cat (kitty)
came back

the very next day
Thought he was a goner
but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't
stay away



Well they give a boy
a dollar

for to set the cat afloat

And he took him
up the river

in a sack and a boat

Well the fishin'
it was fine

till the news got around
That the boat was missing
and the boy was drowned

(Chorus)

Well the farmer
on the corner

said he'd shoot him
on sight

And he loaded up his gun
full of rocks and dynamite

The gun went off
heard all over town
Little pieces of the man
was all that they found

(Chorus)



Well they finally found a way
this cat for to fix
They put him in an orange crate
on Route 66

Come a ten ton truck
with a twenty ton load
Scattered pieces of the orange crate
all down the road

(Chorus)

Now they gave him to a man
going up in the balloon
And they told him for to leave him
with the man in the moon

Well the balloon got busted
back to earth it head
And seven miles away
they picked the man up dead

(Chorus)

Well they took him to the shop
where the meat was ground
And they dropped him in the hopper
when the butcher wasn't 'round

Well the cat disappeared
with a blood-curdling shriek
And the town's meat
tasted furry for a week

(Chorus)

Well, they took him to Cape Canaveral
and they put him in a place
Shot him in a U.S. rocket
going way out in space

Well they finally thought the cat
was out a' human reach
Next day they got a call
from Miami Beach and...

(Chorus)
