I Had A Shoggoth

Words: © 2008 by Tom Smith
Music: "I Had A Cat" (Trad.)
Another children's song, of the repeating-and-building-chorus variety. To be specific, a parody of the traditional song "I Had A Cat/I Bought Me A Cat". Just... the songs you usually have, with kitties and duckies and puppies, simply aren't up to the task of raising our kids. Don't read the lyrics before listening to it, mmkay? Spoilery and all that. A couple of the jokes have evolved, most notably Vader's line in the next-to-last verse. Originally, I had "I have you now", a quote from Star Wars Episode 4. Later it became, "Luke -- you kissed your sister", which is what's on the recording. Nowadays, the line is, "Black goes with everything."

I had a shoggoth, he pleased me,
But drove me to insanity.

I had a minion, he pleased me,
Got victims for my laboratory.

With his decaying anatomy.
