When That Kitten Started Playing

When I came home one morning
There was a little cat
I don’t know how we ended up
With a cat like that
But then what happened next
Just eased my weary soul
When that kitten started playing
With a toilet paper roll

Each time she attacked it
It just rolled away
And I watched it all unravel
Down the stairs that day
Then it landed in a basket
Dad said “that’s a goal!”
When that kitten started playing
With a toilet paper roll

She jumped into the basket
And then the basket fell
Then cat and paper tumbled out
And tumbled out so well
Tumbled to the kitchen
With that tissue that she stole
When that kitten started playing
With a toilet paper roll

She slid across the kitchen floor
And right into the wall
Then that paper rolled away
Somewhere down the hall
Then that cat walked over
And drank water from a bowl
And took a break from playing
With a toilet paper roll

“When That Kitten Started Playing” appears on my second CD of children’s music, Ballad of a Dung Beetle (2011).

One of my very earliest lasting memories involved the family cat, Tony, playing with a roll of (rapidly unraveling) toilet paper.
