A Final in Ring Two
ORIGINAL VERSION


There's a final getting started up in ring two.
Cats competing, 'cause that's what we do.
1st place, 2nd place down to 10.
You know next month we'll do it again.

I look around and it sure seems strange.
The people here, they cover the range.
From young to old, from short to tall.
"It takes all kinds?" Well we've got 'em all.

I see cats with long hair, or short, or none.
And cats are the reason for all this fun.
So check those numbers up in ring two.
That judge just might be asking for you.

You're all just sitting! (I don't like to scold.)
Get up and check the numbers in ring two.
