My Best Life

From the album Winkle Monkey, released June 2003

This song is about a cat who finally found a good life after enduring several horrible lives where he was mistreated and hurt by his owner and other cats.


This is my best life
It's better than my last life
'Cause I got a whole lotta time to myself.

I know I look lazy,
Not too crazy
But that the way I l-l-l-l-like it.

Before, I'd get in fights.
I'd get squeezed and I'd get choked.
Now I sleep all night, I scratch and I bite;
But only when provoked.

This is my best life
Best one (best one) out of nine.
