TWO WHISKERS

TWO WHISKERS
by Chava Cannon

Alongside a dragon, a firefly and a cat named Two Whiskers, I chased me an evil butterfly.
I used a fallen branch that I found as a mighty sacred sword and we hid behind the neighbor’s trash can.
Oh, the butterfly had made its way atop a fence post, and we slowly moved out towards him
As we passed all the goblins arguing with daffodils, the butterfly sat there still

He began to smirk at us as we snuck up behind him, for he knew he was high enough and out of reach
He was the evil one and all good shall prevail in this land of mine, as an 8 year old king
In the background all my goldfish were encouraging with a chant, go forth and conquer the beast
So I jumped on the dragon who carried me to the butterfly who flew away surrendering in defeat

Chorus
And the dragon he gave a roar to declare what he’d done ,
and the firefly he lit up the sky,
Then the Father King called, from the distance to all
It’s time to come home, little guy
I left the dragon and the firefly guarding their post,
With a sigh, we said good-bye, Two Whiskers and I

On the eve of our victory we would celebrate with a feast , stuffed marshmallows with M&M’s inside
We’d discuss all our strategies of how we could defeat the next villain that came from the sky
I’d reward my Two Whiskers with a bow and salute and we’d share a drink that came from noble cow
Then I’d jump in to bed , a new adventure ahead, though the light had to stay on for now (chorus)

Time has flown and I’ve grown, had to leave him behind
Got a call yesterday that he passed
I cried all night, for my noble knight, my heart ached for my friend
who now roams through Heaven’s green grass (chorus)

We were a dragon and I, a firefly and a cat named Two Whiskers……

ALL BY OURSELVES

LA DA DA DA…

People ask me why I am happy all the time
Oh, I didn’t know how much it really showed
I’ve got a bounce in my step and a twinkle in my eye
I’m in happy place, just bubblin’inside

Ya know our youngest is finally leaving
Do you remember quiet, romantic evenings?
No more clean your room, no more do your chores or else
It’s gonna be just you and me all by ourselves

LA DA DA DA…

I could act real sad as I help her pack her bags
And I could even shed a tear or two for show
As she drives away, on that very special day
We’re gonna raise a glass and have a blast alone

Ya know our youngest is finally leaving
Do you remember quiet, romantic evenings?
No more clean your room, no more do your chores or else
It’s gonna be just you and me all by ourselves

LA DA DA DA…

We’ll snuggle and cuddle in any room
Catch up on books, sleep in till noon
Go on a cruise, have many dates,
And we can even stay out late.

No more clean your room, no more do your chores or else
It’s gonna be just you and me all by ourselves

LA DA DA DA…

No more clean your room, no more do your chores or else
It’s gonna be just you and me (PAUSE –SIGH) all by ourselves

LA DA DA DA…
