Sweet. Here's more.

a few months ago my friend and bandmate told me that someone in one of our audiences found me attractive... and I was very appreciative of that, just so long as she understood that I was "a different kind of cat." And that phrase stuck with me and stuck with me and then lyrics started erupting out of my brain and eventually I had written this. I have no music for it yet, it's just lyrics so far.


Different Kind of Cat
by My Rap Name is Alex

Lemme be up front, I don't like to front
I'm not the type of cat that just says what you want
I'm poly, I'm so poly there is no doubt
And I'm out, I'm so out it's sump'n I shout about
Show me around and try concealing my views
and the next thing you know I'm talkin poly on the news
It's in all of my books, in my art, and my songs
I'll tell anyone who asks; I don't think it's wrong
________ revealed life could be this way one day
And I like it, okay? And it's how I'm gonna stay.

I'm a different kind of cat, I'm just a different kind of cat
And I'm thanking you for thinking thoughts that I am all o dat
But yo, just so you know I am a different kind of cat
And you can hate the way I live my life but still it's where I'm at

I'm not the kinda cat that would read your email
I'm not gonna cyberstalk you whatever that entails
If you're lookin for a challenge in me: EPIC FAIL
but if you're into honesty well then let's set sail
You meet at guy at a party we're at; I give you space
I meet a lady at a party we're at; want a taste?
just kidding, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, smiley face
go slow? o-k, we go at your pace
But I gotta be me and you gotta be you
So if my girlfriend's other boyfriend has a chalice tattoo
that's how he does he and what's that to you?
that's how we do we because we think that's cool

I'm a different kind of cat, I'm just a different kind of cat
And I'm thanking you for thinking thoughts that I am all o dat
But yo, just so you know I am a different kind of cat
And you can hate the way I live my life but still it's where I'm at

I'm straight edge and square, I don't want no beer
I don't own no car, and don't really care
When last I ate meat: The year was 94
and I'm the most church goin Atheist that you ever saw
Clothing optional? Sure! Lets get raw
First I got some big shoes to remove. Need->Say->More?
I confess to being strange, and to having a brain
And in many ways I am totally plain
Not into games, won't live life in shame
so holler if you hear me and you feel the same
touch me in the morning, but don't walk away
we'll have tomorrow, today AND yesterday
okay

I'm a different kind of cat, I'm just a different kind of cat
And I'm thanking you for thinking thoughts that I am all o dat
But yo, just so you know I am a different kind of cat
And you can hate the way I live my life but that's just where I'm at
