Louis, be good; une chanson pour fêter les 11 ans du Roi Soleil

Deep down in sunny Brentford to the north of Kew
Not far from the M4 and the B452
There stands a fine Château made of brick and wood
Where lives a small black cat who’s up to no good
He always does the opposite of what we say
We tell him “No” but then he does it anyway

No, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
Louis, be good!

This kitty’s super-creepy; he’s got vampire teeth
The canines are much bigger than the ones beneath
He goes to other gardens and he raises hell
Annoying all the foxes and the squirrels as well
He is a total psycho and a massive pain
That’s why you’ll hear us yelling this again and again

No, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
Louis, be good!

Cat Daddy tells him “Someday I will kick your arse
Unless you start behaving with a bit more class”
Yet many people visit him from miles around
They get here just by following the screaming sound
Maybe someday, instead of being a shite
He’ll say "I will be good tonight"


No, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
No, Louis, no, no!
Louis, be good!
Happy 11th birthday, little sod.

  1. Le Roi is my name, Mischief is my game Always up to no good Don’t behave as I should Hither and yon do I roam Till it’s time to come home Where with servants I dwell Whom I love to give hell For it’s my claim to fame! 😺 Joyeux Anniversaire, Chaton! (I hear 11 is the new 3)

    1. Hahaha, did you sing it rather than read it? 🤣 Merci à vous deux for the good wishes. Sa Maj has been out partying all night and no doubt there will be more mischief when I get home! 😳

      1. Oh very dear. But it sounds from your latest post that he has at least eaten something. Maybe, Brexit willing, you could try French cat food? I mean, I don’t know if it’s any different in real terms, but maybe just having a French name will help? (Or you could re-label his current food with a made-up French brand and see how easy it would be to trick him?)
