Feeling Tired

Catmouse
Cats in the house
You know how I feel
One with a mouse
You know how I feel
That cat is a louse
You know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling tired

Mouse gives a squeak
You know how I feel
Songbird cries "Eek!"
You know how I feel
Kids wide awake
You know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling tired

Mouse runs away from the cat you know what I mean, don’t you know
Cat chasing mouse all the way  you know what I mean
No peace to sleep when the day is done
And this old world is a new world
And a tired world
For me

Close them in tight
You know how I feel
Stay up all night
You know how I feel
Fear of first sight
And I know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me

And I’m feeling tired

  1. OK, I should be able to figure out the original song, but I can’t. Even though I used to listen to The Roar of the Greasepaint, The Smell of the Crowd and Stop the World! I Want to Get Off…..Please enlighten.

  2. It’s “Feeling Good,” and it has been covered almost innumerable times on American Idol this year, and I cannot get it out of my head!
