Facts:
  • "Frank Hayes Disease" - frequently used among filkers to describe the tendency to forget the tune or lyrics of what you are performing while you're performing it — even though you wrote the song. This is a golden example. Shortly after starting the song, he gets as far as "Don't", then forgets the verse. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Never set the cat on fire; you only will annoy it
    The heat will make the beast perspire; she surely won't enjoy it
    Likewise do not ignite the dog
    The snake, the gerbil, or the frog
    No, never set the cat on fire

    And mind your manners, as circumstances may require
    And never set the cat on fire

    (Don't...don't. Just don't.)

    Don't open up the cabin hatch; the air is sure to leave it
    And air is very hard to catch; you never will retrieve it
    And though you think your life's a bore,
    Don't open the reactor door
    Don't open up the cabin hatch

    And mind your manners, as circumstances may require
    And never set the cat on fire

    Don't change the navigator's data; someone's sure to see ya
    You know the captain's view of that: a very bad idea
    He doesn't want his ship to race
    Forever lost in endless space
    Don't change the navigator's data

    And mind your manners, as circumstances may require
    And never set the cat on fire

    Don't start an interstellar war; it has no helpful uses
    As people ask you 'what's it for?', you'll only make excuses
    If thirty trillion folks get hurt,
    You'll go to bed with no dessert!
    Don't start an interstellar war

    And mind your manners, as circumstances may require
    And never set the cat on fire
    And mind your manners, as circumstances may require...(big finish now)
    And never set the cat on fire!
