El señor don Gato

Estaba el señor Don Gato
sentadito en su tejado
marramiau miau, miau, miau,
sentadito en su tejado.

Ha recibido una carta
por si quiere ser casado,
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
por si quiere ser casado.

Con una gatita blanca
sobrina de un gato pardo,
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
sobrina de un gato pardo.

El gato por ir a verla
se ha caído del tejado,
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
se ha caído del tejado.

Se ha roto seis costillas
el espinazo y el rabo,
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
el espinazo y el rabo.

Ya lo llevan a enterrar
por la calle del pescado,
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
por la calle del pescado.

Al olor de las sardinas
el gato ha resucitado,
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
el gato ha resucitado.

Por eso dice la gente
"siete vidas tiene un gato",
marramiau, miau, miau, miau,
"siete vidas tiene un gato".

TRANSLATION

Lord Tom Cat

Lord Tom Cat was
Sitting on his roof.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Sitting on his roof.

He received a letter
Asking if he wants to get married.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Asking if he wants to get married.

With a white kitty,
Niece of a brown cat.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Niece of a brown cat.

As the cat went to visit her,
He fell down from the roof.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
He fell down from the roof.

He broke six ribs,
His spine and his tail.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
His spine and his tail.

He's taken to be buried
Through the street of the fishmongers.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Through the street of the fishmongers.

Smelling some sardines,
The cat was resuscitated.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
The cat was resuscitated.

That's why people say,
"A cat has seven lives."
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
"A cat has seven lives".
