FANTASTIC CAT
嶺川貴子 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Fantastic cat
I am a cat and like a girl
Fantastic cat
I am a cat and like a girl
Hoo hoo...
I′m a fantastic cat

Fantastic cat
I love cute dresses and cute shoes
Fantastic cat
I wear a nice knee-length of jupe
Hoo hoo...
I'm a fantastic cat

I am a cat but got no tin tin tail
Put on a pinkly lip cream on funny face
But I′m a cat live in a candy canvas
And I am happy happy staying in here...

Fantastic Cat
I play my mini mini moog
Fantastic Cat
I play a piece of strange music
Hoo hoo...
I'm a fantastic cat
Are you OK? Here I go!

Fantastic Cat
I'm in love with a brilliant Boy
Fantastic Cat
We′ll find some tiny tiny boy
Hoo hoo...
My fantastic Love!

Fantastic Cat
And I am chatting with my mates
Computer Cat
I chat with world using E-mail
Hoo hoo...
Fantastic chat

Fantastic Cat
I am a cat and like a girl
Fantastic Cat
I am a cat and like a girl
Hoo hoo...
I′m a fantastic cat...
