â€śToday I have decided that
Weâ€™ll live up to our reputations
And act according to our stations.
Iâ€™ll cuddle in the masterâ€™s lap
While you go hide and take a nap.
Tonight Iâ€™ll greet him at the door
As you reveal disdain once more.
Just wash your whiskers and your paws.
Youâ€™ll have no need to show your claws.
Iâ€™ll jump and bark and lick his hand.
Youâ€™ll disregard his least command.
Ignore me when I walk your way
And give no sign of your dismay.
Appear aloof, indifferent,
As though youâ€™re giving your consent,
Then arch your back and spit and hiss
When I eat supper from your dish.
Weâ€™ll be the worst of enemiesâ€”
Thatâ€™s what heâ€™ll think from what he sees.
And when the master goes to bed,
Weâ€™ll laugh at how heâ€™s been misled.
Weâ€™ll curl together on his chair
And sleep in comfort all night there.â€ť
