I'm Nobody's Mama (from episode 39) Music by Deanna Oliver. Rita: I'm nobody's mama Got no family I'm a career cat And my career is all about me. No one can tie me down I'm going places Straighten up Don't make those silly sad faces It's rude. Kttns: Mew? Rita: All right, I'll get food. (spoken) But that's it! After that, you're on your own.
Rita: I'm too independent They're so small How can I care for them? Do I care at all? I could never stand "Help me, Mama; Feed me, Mama Need me, Mama; Don't leave me, Mama. " I'd never tolerate that. On the other hand, "Oh, my Mama; I love you, Mama I will never leave you, Mama. " No! You've got the wrong cat!
Rita: And did I mention They'll want too much attention I'll worry about 'em each day, every minute I gotta tell you my head isn't in it. I won't let my heart talk 'Cause it's ruled by my biological clock Which is ticking away. No way! I mean what I say! I'm a single cat stray! I'm nobody's mama!
