Sooty The Football Cat

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The other day
I was up the wall
Through sheer boredom
So I picked up my ball.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I knocked at my Grandad’s
Ball in my hand
‘Wanna play football Girl?
I’m the best upon this land.’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Grandad whipped on his shorts
And his best woolly hat
Put on his worn football boots
‘Grandad, don’t kick the cat!’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But too late Grandad miss kicked the ball
And the cat flew over the hedge
Such an awful cry as Sooty did fly
And landed upon Grandad’s window ledge.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Sooty was fine after a saucer of milk
Although a little upset
Never again would she get in the way
Of Grandad’s flying boot I’ll bet!
