Listen to a Song


This is dedicated to my best friend.
Ya know?


My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
All I know is I miss my Biggie.


Well, I’ve got a cat, and I call him Biggie,
Why’s that? Because he’s fatter than Miss Piggy.
I mean I treasure my cat, I love him to death,
And I have a lot of friends, but Biggie was best.
My cat has a special ability, I mean talent,
For getting on a skateboard and riding around.
When people, they see his trick, they rub their eyes,
And they want to see it again like a hundred times.
This cat is kind of clever, I mean he’s smart,
He rules the whole neighborhood, all of the yards.
But Biggie, he has a habit for getting himself lost.
“What do you mean by habit?” He does it a lot.
But one time Biggie got lost and didn’t come back,
Even when I called his name, and I put out some snacks.
I got real scared; maybe he got hit by a car,
Or what if Biggie was alone, ran out of food and starved?
Oh my god…


This is dedicated to my best friend.


My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
All I know is I miss my Biggie.

I had to do something, I had to act,
So I went to a book and found a neighborhood map.
Had to locate my cat, find out where he was at,
’Cause if I lost my Biggie, man, I would have been sad.
So I searched the trees, and all of the streets,
Up and down, all I found was some leaves and concrete.
But there was one dark alley across the way,
Where the dogs would fight like each and every day.
So I started to explore it and look around,
All I found was some trash all over the ground.
But then I heard “meow,” and I knew it was him,
I was certain it was Biggie: “I’m coming my friend!”
I thought he was in trouble; it’s the opposite,
There was a vat of ice cream; he was on top of it.
He was so big now, he looked like a monster pet,
Ha ha ha. Welcome home.


My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
My Biggie, where did you go? Where did you go?
All I know is I miss my Biggie.
