happy birthday

Happy Birthday to me.  Happy Birthday to me.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.... 

What?  What's that, Peepers?  What's that you're babblin' on about now?

What do you mean it's not my birthday?  What do you MEAN?

Okay, so you do have a point there, Peepers.  Technically, I shouldn't be singin' this song 'til tomorrow on account of TOMORROW bein' Canada Day, and not today.  But the thing is, Peepers, tomorrow isn't a publishing day so I'm singin' it today, and...

What?  You're STILL babblin' on about somethin' and whatnot?  What on Earth are you babblin' on about NOW?

What do you mean tomorrow isn't MY birthday?  What do you MEAN?

So?

Oh for mousin' out loud, Peepers.  Do I have to spell it out for you?

Seriously.  Do I have to?

FINE.

So it's like this, Peepers:  Tomorrow is Canada Day.  Tomorrow is Canada's birthday.  And I, Seville the Cat, am Canadian.

MOUSES!

It's not the same thing, you say?

Hmmm...

Well I beg to differ.

MOUSES!

Peepers, I represent like....  Like ALL cats, Canadian.  You have any idea how many Canadian peeps out there would love to be me?

No seriously, DO you?  'Cause knowin' stats like that would be a big plus for my resume, and...

I do too have a resume.  I've just never let you see it, is all.  And do you know what it says on that resume?  Huh?  HUH?  Do you, Peepers?  Do you?

It says...  I, Seville the Cat, am a Canadian cat through and through.

What's more, it lists my date of birth as...

Okay, so it doesn't actually list my date of birth on account of my comin' to live with you when I was fully grown and stuff, but uh...

Ummm...

Well that's all the more reason for me to adopt Canada's birthday as my own.

MOUSES!

Plus, there'll be picnics and BBQs and cakes and things, and uh...  Parties!  There will definitely be tonnes of parties, and uh...

Well it's kinda nice knowin' that people from coast to coast to coast - all across this great nation of ours - will be celebrating MY BIRTHDAY tomorrow, all day long.

Will too.

WILL TOO.

WILL TOO.

Yes they will, Peepers.  Almost forty million people, give or take a few million, are gonna be celebrating tomorrow and THEY'RE ALL GONNA BE CELEBRATING ME.

Look, you believe what you wanna believe there, Peepers, but I know better.  For most Canadians, tomorrow is gonna be a celebration of one of Canada's most beloved cats.  For MOST Canadians, tomorrow is gonna be all about me.  Why the day isn't called Seville the Cat Day, I'll never know, but I'm bettin' it has somethin' to do with the difficulty of changing the name on everyone's calendars, or something silly like that.

MOUSES!

Oh, and Peepers?  When the birthday gifts start arriving tomorrow morning, you can put 'em in my office, okay?  Start at the back and stack 'em carefully.  Once you've run out of room in there, fill up the guest room.  I'm probably gonna be otherwise occupied taking calls and doin' interviews.  You know, things like that

And uh...

Gettin' nipped.

MOUSES! 



HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYBODY!

HAPPY CANADA DAY!
