             F                            Ab
Did you ever think when you eat Chinese
   Bb                                              F
It ain't pork or chicken but a fat siamese
            F                                   Ab
Yet the food tastes great so you don't complain
      Bb                                   F
But that's not chicken in your chicken chow-mein
Eb                    Eb+d                     Cm   Cm7
Seems to me I ordered sweet and sour pork
       Ab         Cm      F
But Garfield's on my fork
        Ab             Cm7   F
He's purrin' here on my fork

              F                                Eb
There's a cat in the kettle at the Peeking-Moon
  Ab                            F
The place that I eat every day at noon
F                                              Eb
They can feed you cat and you'll never know
     Ab        Cm   F
Once they wrap it up in dough, boys...
Ab             Cm7    F
They fry it real crisp in dough...

         F                   Ab
Chow Lin asked if I wanted more
                 Bb                                  F
As he was dialin' up his buddy at the old pet store
          F                           Ab
I said, not today I lost my appitite
           Bb                                         F
There's two cats in my belly and they want to fight
         Eb            Eb+d             Cm          Cm7
I was suckin' on Rolaid and a Tums or two
            Ab        Cm      F
When I swear I heard it mew, boys...
       Ab      Cm7     F
And that is when I knew

              F                                Eb
There's a cat in the kettle at the Peeking-Moon
  Ab                              F
I think I gotta stop eatin' there at noon.
        F                            Eb  
They say that it's beef or fish or pork
           Ab               Cm      F
But it's purrin' there on my fork
              Ab         Cm    F
There's a hairball on my fork.
