So I was telling the Furkids how I loved this beautiful song by pianist Roger Williams but I’d never known the lyrics so I couldn’t sing along to it. They asked me for the name of the song and then exclaimed, “But we know the words!”

Instantly that became our next project — I’d find a recording of the music, they’d supply the lyrics and we’d illustrate it together for our favourite people and furriends!

So exciting!

It wasn’t long before I began to suspect these weren’t the original lyrics… nevermind. The Furkids were very happy with them. “Dem’s lubbly werdz!”  they enthused.


Oh yes, the Furkids also wanted me to tell you that their first verse is dedicated to their friend Sarah from Creative Sprints. “Sarah dun lubbly werk but she no share her yarn wid uz.” Yes, well, there’s a good reason for that.

And so we present Fascination, music by Roger Williams and lyrics by the Furkids. The jukebox is cashed up and ready to go so just press play then scroll down to the lyrics and sing along!

  1. This is great, Mopsy. I do recall that tune. But the lyrics and the images are great.

    We get an original movie here every week on PZ. Not bad. :))

  2. Outstanding, and so very sweet! Thank you, Furkids and Michelle! Especially loved the illustration of the dear butler fetching Mousie from under the stove – something we humans can all relate to, whether the favorite toy is under the stove, the couch, the bed, the refrigerator…. Wishing everyone an easy-peasy week ahead. 😻

    • When I was in grade school, I brought home a kitten one day and he became a member of the family. My mother would tear off a strip of aluminium foil and roll it into a ball for him to chase. Of course, he was constantly losing them so she’d make him another one.

      He was about a year old when the side-by-side oven and stove had some kind of problem and a repairman came around. He pulled one end of the appliance away from the wall and was surprised to see several dozen little foil globes! My mother exclaimed, “So that’s where Tommy’s silver balls get to!” Mystery solved!
