Sometimes you just have to listen…. btw, have you ever been straightened out by a cat?

This is what a song should do. From their album Reconstruction Site:

The Weakerthans (from Ultimate-guitar.com)

Plea From a Cat Named Virtue
Capo 4
Intro: E A B A E

E
Why don’t you ever wanna play?
A
I’m tired of this piece of string
B
You sleep as much as I do now,
A E
and you don’t eat much of anything

E
I don’t know who you’re talking to
A
I made a search through every room
B
but all I found was dust that moved
A E
with shadows of the afternoon

E A
And listen, about those bitter songs you sing
F#m
they’re not helping anything
A E
they won’t make you strong

E
So we should open up the house
A
invite the tabby two doors down
B
You could ask your sister if
A E
she doesn’t bring her basset hound

E
Ask the things you shouldn’t miss
A
tape hiss and the modern man
B
cold war and card catalogues
A E
to come join us if they can

E
For girly drinks and parlor games
A
we’ll pass around the easy lie
B
of absolutely no regrets
A E
and later maybe you could try

E
To let your losses dangle off
A
the sharp edge of a century
B
We’ll talk about the weather
A E
or how the weather use to be

E A
And I’ll cater, with all the birds that I can kill
F#m A
let their tiny feathers fill disappointment
E A
Lie down, and lick the sorrow from your skin
F#m A E
Scratch the terror and begin to believe you’re strong

(SLOWLY)
E A
All you ever want to do is drink and watch TV
E A
frankly that thing doesn’t really interest me
E A
I swear I’m going to bite you hard and taste your tinny blood
E
if you don’t stop the self-defeating lies you’ve been repeating
A (PAUSE)
since the day you brought me home
E A B A E X 2 End on E
I know you’re strong.
