Born in an Easter Egg (ode to Moo)
(To the tune of “Born in the U.S.A.)

We got a cat ten years ago
She came out in the toilet bowl
We tried to kill her but she wouldn't flush
She made strange noises every time we pushed 
 
Born in an Easter egg 
She was born in an Easter egg
We saw a paw and then a leg
She was born in an Easter egg 

She takes a shower with her tongue
She licks all day but her spots aren't gone
Sleeps on her back and she talks in her sleep
She dreams about the bugs that she couldn't eat  

She's got four paws and a raccoon tail
Peed on the laundry and we put her in jail
She grew bigger…than a cow
Her name is Moo, she says,” Meow"

Born in an Easter egg 
She was born in an Easter egg
I found my tools in her Easter egg
We pulled the Easter Bunny from her Easter egg 
 
She ran outside and she ran back in
Puked on the carpet and ran out again
She ate much grass, 'cause it was fiber
But it didn’t like to be inside her

She smelled the couch and she smelled my toe
She smelled the neighbors just to say hello

She smells the vacuum cleaner when it's off
She hates ink pens because they fight too rough
 
Her best friend Lunch (the cat) likes Jimmie Hendrix
She got too high and tried to remove her appendix
We tried to send her to cat detoxification
She tried to have an abortion without prior parental notification
 
Born in an Easter egg 
She was born in an Easter egg
Her best Friend Lunch (the cat) thought it was a keg
And drank a lot of beer in her Easter egg 
Born in an Easter egg 
She was born in an Easter egg
She was born in an Easter egg
We kicked her down the street in an Easter egg
