I have strong childhood memories of a song about a dead cat.

Oh, Senor Don Gato was a cat,
On a high red roof Don Gato sat,
he went there to read a letter
meow, meow, meow,
where the reading light was better
meow, meow, meow.
'Twas a love note for Don Gato!

I adore you wrote the lady cat,
Who was fluffy, white, and nice and fat,
Oh there was no sweeter kitty, meow, meow meow,
In the country or the city
And she said she'd wed Don Gato.

Oh Don Gato jumped so happily,
He fell off the roof and broke his knee,
Broke his ribs and all his whiskers, meow, mewo meow,
And his little solar plexis, meow, meow, meow,
Ay caramba cried Don Gato.

Well the doctors all came on the run,
Just to see if something could be done,....
But in spite of everything they tried,
Poor senor Don Gato up and died,....

When the funeral passed the market square
Such a smell of fish was in the air,
Though his burial was slated, meow meow meow
He became reanimated, meow..
He came back to life, Don Gato.
Some of these songs, I can't imagine that the teachers would dare to teach them. Guess I'll find out in a couple years!

I love the episode of Bugs with this.

I like this one too:

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.

+1 on Don Gato. I've tried to remember that off and on since childhood and usually fail in the third verse.
