The King Of The Cats
lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2012

mp3 and pdf sheet music

     Dm               Gm* Dm
The King of the Cats has many abodes
 Dm        Gm        C      A
Scattered along the Shadow Roads,
    Dm        C         Dm      A
The entrance shows and then it scats,
   Dm      F       A           Dm
It answers to the King of the Cats.

The King of the Cats is mighty free
Keeping the strangest company.
They're all decked out in spikes and tats;
They answer to the King of the Cats.

The King of the Cats the shadow veils
And even my own cats carry tales.
They aren't much as diplomats;
They answer to the King of the Cats.

The King of the Cats with Trouble sports
His people comprise the Shadow Courts
Like ninja pirate acrobats
They answer to the King of the Cats.

The King of the Cats won't go away
Fool that I am to feed a stray
He smiles at me; my heart pitter-pats
It answers to the King of the Cats.

* this Gm is only one beat; if you can't get on and off it that fast, stick with the Dm

I've always had this not-so-sneaking fondness for Tybalt, what can I say? For those who are interested, four songs inspired by Seanan McGuire's work (Art Feeds Life, One Salt Sea, Mayday, and Oak and Ash) are dressed up and stepping out on my new CD "The King's Lute" available at Bandcamp
