CATS IN THE KETTLE - Harry Chapin parody

Harry Chapin wrote good songs. Chinese food is safe 'n tasty. Cats are great.

So why do a parody about 'em? Oh, why not. Manic Larry Baker's "Cats in the Kettle" is short and sweet (and sour). A little tasteless, a little un-PC, but it doesn't really harm Harry, cats, or the reputation of Chinese kitchens.

With novelty songs, often taped off the radio or just tossed on P2P sites, the credit gets lost, or worse, ends up tagged as Weird Al Yankovic or Anonymous. That name again is: Manic Larry Baker.

I don't know if anyone will check this comment (since this is a post from August of last year) but this song was actually written by a guy named Aaron Wilburn ( It doesn't really matter, but I thought I'd clear it up.

This is Manic Larry. Sorry to correct you but I am the author of This Parody. I have the check I was paid to prove it. Since you can’t copyright a parody Mt Wilbur and thousands of others ripped it off but it was not he original that aired on the Bob Rivers show and performed by The American Comedy Network
