Most cat lovers can agree that sometimes our furry companions can do some really odd things. Cat antics have been documented since ancient Egyptian days, but thousands of years later, they are still hilarious! With the advancement of technology, we can capture their funny quirks at a moment’s notice. Even make a video parody song, perhaps? And that’s exactly what the owners of cats Merry and Pippin have done.
Merry and Pippin, the Song Parody Kings

On TikTok, making parodies or covers of songs seems to be the trend lately. And tuxedo cat brothers Merry and Pippin are right on trend. TikTok users Cat and Rob, who go by the name crayzee_cat are the owners of the furry brothers. Using footage of them being silly, they put Merry and Pippin’s antics to the tunes of popular songs.
Every day, Merry and Pippin constantly play with each other and find themselves in odd places around the house. So, you never know what they will do next or which song they choose.
They’ve done songs such as “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, “Barbie Girl” by Aqua, and even the Pokemon theme song. However, it’s not the actual lyrics that the footage syncs up with. These songs feature new parody lyrics to showcase the lives of cats.
But this next hit tune they chose to parody below put them over the top to TikTok viral stardom.
The Gaston Kitty Song
Anyone who’s a Disney fan has probably heard the song “Gaston” from Beauty and the Beast. Cat and Rob changed the lyrics to the popular tune, and Merry and Pippin stole the show.
“No one fights like a cat, chases lights like a cat, when there’s plastic to chew no one bites like a cat!”
That’s just the beginning of the lyrics. The song continues to say:
“For there’s no one as naughty or crazy, when they’re hungry they give you the stare. Oh they sit in the strangest of places, and everything they touch gets covered in hair!”
With each lyric, Merry and Pippin are play “fighting” with each other, chasing a light up a fridge door, and biting on things they know they aren’t supposed to. One of the cats is then seen popping out of a trash can, giving that stare we’ve all experienced when it’s feeding time. The song and footage ends with a dryer exploration, rubbing on blankets, attacking comforter-covered feet, pushing things off the counter, and then being the sweetest cuddle buddies.
Here are the lyrics of the purrsome song:
“No one fights like a cat,
Chases lights like a cat,
When there’s plastic to chew no one bites like a cat,
For there’s no one as naughty or crazy,
When they’re hungry they give you the stare,
Oh they sit in the strangest of places,
And everything they touch gets covered in hair,
No one eats like a cat,
Begs for treats like a cat,
Wakes you early and attacks your feet like a cat,
As a pet they can be so infuriating,
Oh, but I do love my cats!”
Merry and Pippin Go Viral
The video shows just how sweet and sour cats can be like a sour patch kid candy. Most of Merry and Pippin’s videos have thousands and thousands of views and likes, but this particular one got them over 1.6 million. Check out their TikTok channel to see if they made a parody of your favorite song.
