cat spotted, safe away,
sleeping, resting, softly still,
but now her baby plans were laid:
   get the cat, get the cat;
screeching squeals, arms flap,
   get the cat,
wild excitement
breaks his nap,
   get the cat,
   get the cat.
whiskers flick, fat fingers itch,
legs kick, ears twitch,
   get the cat;
baby laughs, coo and bubble,
cat shifts, sure of trouble,
   get the cat.
toes dig, forward inch,
arms stretch, fingers pinch,
   get the cat, get the cat,
push, pull, drag along,
  get the cat, get the cat.
cat motor mumbles raspy song,
   get the cat, get the cat,
finger tips grasp at hair,
   get the cat, get the cat!
nearly there! nearly there!
happy hand slap,
almost miss,
cat is good and does not hiss!
fingers rake, pull fur,
  got the cat, got the cat,
smile and babble,
blink and purr.
