My friend Scuffy insisted that I write a song on this theme, and I'm glad she did. It's basically the opposite of 'Watching Killer Robots Eat Your Head', although I didn't intend that to be the case. Sing along with the chorus!


Some days it's hard to be a woman
Some days it's hard to be a man
Some days the world makes you madder than Hell
It's more than a person can stand

When your day is like that you don't have to feel bad;
There's no place where that rule is written
Just do what I do, and do a web search
For pictures of adorable kittens.

Adorable kittens!
Adorable kittens!
Whenever I'm sad I do a web search
For pictures of adorable kittens.

It works without fail, it picks me right up
And puts a big grin on my face.
It gets my spirit from down off the floor
And shoots it into outer space

There's lots of things that people might like,
Like ice cream, or babies with mittens
But I'd trade every one for a few gigabytes
Of pictures of adorable kittens.


So now it's time to finish my CD.
I'd like to thank you for your time
and your patience as you listened to my little verse.
I tried hard to make it all rhyme.

And now as we near the end of the song
I hope you like the way that it ends.
As for me, I'll be heading on back to my home
where I'll web-search for adorable kittens.
