What a World

I beg to differ.

I'm a cat walkin in a dog's night
Cat walkin tryin to get a bite
Of something to eat that tastes just right
In this dog's life.

High heeled chickens digging in the scraps
Dirty dogs chasing off the cats
Everybody giving everybody crap
In this dog's life.

Big headed woman with hair so blond
Big red slit where the mouth belong
Big teeth sharp and strong
In this dog's life.

Big Jimmie with his bis and pecs
Big man with his big neck
Jimmie comin better step to the left
Gonna be a dog fight.

Dog eatin dog, cat fightin cat
Dog beatin dog
And the mouse is runnin with the rat

Big Black Joe got a big red gash
Tring to run with all of the stash
Stealing money from rich white trash
In this dog's life.

Pied Piper better come along
Chase these rats right out of this town
They're running all the good folks down
In this dog's life.

Just tryin to make something of the night
In this dog's life.

From A Dog's Life by jm. 1986.

You know, I can't remember.
It was in a book, though. Definitely saw a story there.
