Cecilia

Cecilia
you crawled your way into our hearts and sleeves
and gave us kisses even as you sneezed
sometimes you peed on me
but always left your mother pleased

Cecilia
oh, Cecilia

When Eloise was murdered in cold blood
and every cage we bought you was a dud
you didn't budge
you sneaked and squeaked here with us

Except that day you pulled the jailbreak
I's afraid your mom would kill me
up and down the house I franticked
looking for you in the closet
and when I stood up there you were meeping on a hung up jacket

Cecilia
if all the cheeses in the world were gone
and all the wheels were turning on their own we'd still miss you

Cecilia
'cause... you... peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed
