“Sixteen Pounds”  


A parody by T. E. Gray, 20 Sep 2010



You load sixteen pounds, and whaddya get?  Another day's ration for your hungry pets.


St. Peter don't you call me, 'cause I can't go --I owe my soul to the catfood store.



If you see them comin’, better step aside.  One time I didn't, and I nearly died.


Claws of iron and jaws of steel --if the orange one doesn't get you, then the black ones will.



You load sixteen pounds, and whaddya get?  Another day's ration for your hungry pets.


St. Peter don't you call me, 'cause I can't go --I owe my soul to the catfood store.
