   D                        A          D
I woke up quite certain--today is the day
 G        D                         A         
Somehow I know things are going my way
     G          D                      G
I'm rested and ready, well tested and taught
   G          D               A7            D
Today is the day I will      catch the red dot!
   
        A                       D
   You say I will fail; that it always escapes;
        A7                       G           A
   You said that before, when I tackled the drapes...
       D              G           D           A
   Of course I'll be sharing the morsel I've caught--
      G          D              A7            D
   Today is the day I will     catch the red dot!

It's quick, and it's clever; it's agile and small
Myself I have seen it run right up the wall
The ever-elusive--I've never forgot
Today is the day I will        catch the red dot!

   You say the red dot is more clever than me
   You said that before I dismembered the tree...
   Of course I'll be sharing the morsel I've caught
   Today is the day I will      catch the red dot.

You think I can't do it; I shouldn't have dared
You say better hunters than me have despaired
You say it's impossible; Ha! I think not!
Today is the day I will       catch the red dot

   You say the red dot's an addiction that binds,
   You said that before, when I butchered the blinds...
   Of course I'll be sharing the morsel I've caught
   Today is the day I will      catch the red dot.
