"Where the Humans Eat" as written by and Willy Mason....
Why won't you listen,
When I speak?
Why won't you listen,
When I stamp my feet?
You don't belong where the humans eat
You don't belong,
Don't belong to me.

I have been working
All fucking day,
You lie there sleeping
Your life away.
You don't belong where the humans eat,
You don't belong,
Don't belong to me.

I just fed you
And your fat brother,
So why are you now still
Yelling at me?
You don't belong where the humans eat
You don't belong
Don't belong to me,
You don't belong where the humans eat
You don't belong,
Don't belong to me.

    General Commenti got a feeling this songs about one of his pets?....maybe a cat or something cos in his album cover theres a pic of two fat cats. I absolutely LOVE it when he sings: "all f*cking day!" ... i never thought he had it in him!!! this song is brilliant, good choice for the album name. GO WILLY!!!

    General CommentI´m not quite sure what´s this song´s about. I read somewhere that the title and so the title of the album is named after something Willy´s grandmother told him when he was younger.
    But I like this sons so much!

    General CommentI think it's from the POV of a mother, about her kids?
    'You don't belong where the humans eat' and 'you don't belong to me' sounds kind of like what an exasperated parent might say to their kid.

    I don't think it's about cats.
