Somebody's Bulldog, by the side of the road Somebody's Mack truck which won't move until it's towed Someone's eighteen-wheeler whose tires all went flat When it tried to argue right-of-way with Honorable Cat Yesterday it ran amok and cause pet owners grief Producing pancaked puppies at a rate beyond belief Now it's halfway through the guard rail with its driver underneath It's nobody's Kenworth now You see, cats that dress as Samurai, though very seldom found Are cats that guard their honor and will never yield their ground So when the truck bore down on him to add him to its list Our Tomokato proved that driver "never would be missed" (*) So listen to me, truckers all: If you don't want to wreck Don't try to argue with that cat. He'll send you straight to heck And you'll lie there on the shoulder with your truck upon your neck Don't tangle with things that Meow!
Regarding scansion: "You see" is a pair of grace notes. The rest of it should be fairly obvious.
