Inspired by this piece of software: www.google.co.uk/intl/en/landing/translateforanimals/

The style is a poor imitation of Randy Newman, and the line about the coat and the toaster was from a dream.

lyrics

Have you heard the latest from google?
They've got a thing you can use
Tell your cat to speak to the mike
And it'll tell you it's blues

It'll tell you if it needs feeding
It'll tell you when when it wants a drink
It'll tell you when to pet it and stroke it and scratch it
It'll tell you just what a cat can think

And this miracle doesn't just stick to cats
It can talk to all the things it's supposed ta
It knows dog and duck and mongolian girafe
And also the language of the coat and the toaster

So now you can speak to tiddles
I know your life's just complete
Make sure that you keep your pets feeling happy
Now go give tiddles a treat
