"My Cat's Name is Maceo" as written by Perry Farrell, Maceo Jr. Parker, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins and Eric Adam Avery....
My cat's name is Maceo
He's a little man in a cat's body
He yawns just like I do
He's convinced I won't eat him
I think he thinks that I'm his dad
Because I saved him from the pound
Well we went down
Down the the pound and that's where we saw Maceo
Cat catcher said to me, "Pick one out,"
Maceo said, "Let me out"
He sleeps right where I do and we wrestle in the morning!
He come to you if you don't bother him
He just likes to do his own thing
My cat's name is Maceo
He's a little man in a cat's body

    General CommentI love this song, it's so sweet. i don't really think there is any kind of deep meaning behind this one, Perry Farrell obviously just decided to write a song about his cat.

    General CommentI could be wrong on this one, but I think it is "gently nestled in the morning" not "and we wrestle in the morning" The cat was named after Maceo Parker who was a Jazz musician. I sing this to my cat all of the time...and I am a 28 year old hetero male....Thanks Perry
