Cat Songs

I don’t why but there are lots of cat songs out there. It could be that cats have that that je ne sais quoi (a mysterious quality) that inspires songwriters of different genres.

Some tunes mentioned below are true odes to felines. Others are not really about cats, but they are inspired by cats' irks and quirks.

And yet others have nothing to do with cats, but have the words cat or cats in the title.

Señor Don Gato (was a cat)

by Anonymous

A children’s song, Señor Don Gato tells the story of a house cat who receives a letter from his sweetheart telling him she has accepted his marriage proposal.

In his excitement, Don Gato (who was sitting on a roof) falls to the ground. His injuries are so bad that he dies. But as his funeral procession passes the general market, the strong aroma of fish brings him to life.
