Dear Buddy
I'm writing you this letter
In the case that you should come back
As a human in a future life

Oh Buddy
I have many things to say to you
Giving you my point of view
If you'll just listen
Won't you listen?
Come on and listen
Do ya hear me when I ask of you

Why must you scratch me like you do
When all I want is to play with you
Do you know how long it takes a scratch to heal?

I realize I don't know what you're thinking
And I wonder if you think the same about me
Heaven knows I don’t have all the answers
So if it's okay with you
When you throw me that catitude
I'll assume you're joking

Dear Buddy
Why is it when I call your name
I act so lame, my voice gets high
Can you tell me why?

Yo Buddy
Dogs aren't as scary as they look
Just swat their nose with your right hook
And send them on their way

There's a dog-eat-dog world beyond these walls
To make a way ain't always easy
When I'm down and blue
I think of you and your furry face
And I smile

I realize I don't know what you're thinking
And I wonder if you think the same about me
Heaven knows I don’t have all the answers
So if it's okay with you
When you throw me that catitude

Chasing shadows, jumping at flies
Sleeping the day away
Meowing at me, what's your reason?
Do you have something to say to me?

I realize I don't know what you're thinking
And I wonder if you think the same about me
Heaven knows I don’t have all the answers
So if it's okay with you
When you throw me that catitude

Dear Buddy
I'm writing you this letter
In the case that you should come back
As a human in a future life
