Nothing in the world can bother you as much as your own mind, I tell you. In fact, others seem to be bothering you, but it is not others, it is your own mind.
Cats are bad-tempered, lazy and selfish,
they don’t always want you with them here.
But if you need a friend, they will be
if they can sense you’ve shed a tear.
I am like a cat: bad-tempered, lazy and selfish,
and I won’t always want you with me here.
But if you need me around then I will be,
to purr soft nothings in your ear.
