One meow, two meow, three meow, scat!
What's the initial of my pet tom cat?
Is it A, B, C, D, E, F, G?
Is it H or J or L, M, N, O, P?
Is it L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T?
No, it's you! You're the cat for me!

You know you've been mean to me
And you know when you're mean to me
How it always makes me wanna roam
And you know there's a danger
That some gentle stranger
Might pick me up and make me feel at home.

So pet me poppa, poppa pet me nice. (Meow!)
Pet me poppa, poppa break the ice. (And you know how!)
If you don't want me out roaming the city,
Talk to me pretty, "Here kitty kitty!"
And pet me poppa, poppa pet me nice.

Ooh, pet me poppa, poppa pet me good. (Meow!)
Mmm, pet me poppa, proper like you should. (And you know how!)
If you care to keep me home by the fire,
'specially when it's time to retire
Then pet me poppa, poppa pet me good.

Warm up my saucer of milk, and maybe I'll purr.
Lay out my cushion of silk, don't rumple my fur!

Just reach over and pet me poppa, poppa melt the ice.
If you don't want me out roaming the city,
Talk to me pretty, "Here kitty kitty!"
And pet me poppa, that's my good advice!

Pet me poppa!
Pet me poppa!
Pet me poppa, poppa pet me! (That'll get me!)
Pet me poppa, poppa pet me nice!
