Ode to a Buttered Cat

January 30, 2012 3:59 PM

A folk epic about airport security and cats and butter, as told recently by mie.

My voice is feeling a little ragged today so I didn't have the wherewithal to give this a few extra takes to try and improve my take on the meter or patch up a few verbal stumbles; I took a few small on-the-fly liberties with the lyrics as well to manage to spit them out. All fault there lies with the singer, not the lyricist.

I love when the drums come in at 1:34 or so

So this is a John-Lennon-doing-'Twist-and-Shout' thing, here, is what you're saying.

A work of genius! We'll be bringing arcticcat back with us when we move from China to Canada in a couple of months; this will be in my head through the whole moving process.

It may just be the cold medicine talking, but this brought a tear to my eye.
