On Offer

She bought herself a pussy cat
The husband came for free
There’s discord in their little flat
As you can plainly see

The cat is cute but makes a mess
The husband won’t agree
The cat is worth it more or less
Declaring “him or me”

She really loves that little cat
Oh what a quandary
Who would have thought a thing like that
Could threaten harmony

So man or cat she cannot choose
Which one it has to be
Just ring her up, you cannot lose
‘Cause either one is free!
