‘I Always Feel Like Some Buddy’s Watching Me And I Got No Privacy, Meow!’

For the full experience, listen to this while reading Buddy’s masterful lyrics:

Who’s watching
Tell me who’s watching
Who’s watching me

I’m just an average cat with an average life
I sleep from 9 to 5, and then I wake up nice
All I want is to be left alone, in my average home
But why do I always feel like
I’m in the Twilight Zone?

I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
Tell me, is it just a dream?

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone I’m trying to avoid
Or can the people on TV see me?!?
Can they?!? Or am I just paranoid?
When I need a tongue bath,
I’m afraid to wash my fur
Cause I might open my eyes and find someone standing thur!
Kitties say I’m crazy, just a little touch
But maybe tongue baths remind me of Psycho too much
That’s why…

I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

I don’t know anymore!
Are the neighbors watching me?
Who’s watching
Well is the mailman watching me?
Tell me who’s watching
And I don’t feel safe anymore, oh what a mess
I wonder who’s watching me now
Who?
The IRS?!

I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
Tell me is it just a dream

I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like some Buddy’s watchin’ me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

    1. My cat ALWAYS stares at me. He thinks he will get a second helping of treats. I have to watch his waistline while he stares at me. 🀣🀣

    1. This version was originally made for GEICO commercials in 2011 IIRC, then it took off and became an online chart topper and a club hit. It’s tough to follow Michael Jackson singing the hook on the original, but I like the distorted, filthy synth with its heavy low end as well as the vocoder. I also like the melody of the verses, which is a nice departure.

      1. BellaSita Mum here!! You know Buddy I DO remember those Geico TV ads!!! What a flashback!!
        I like the song no matter who sings it…I used to sing it in the shower & my hubby Paul would practically pass out laughing so hard!!! Cause I am pretty sure he WAS watching me! πŸ˜‰

  2. Buddy, maybe you need a new security system? You are so very handsome that we all want to watch you all the time. Of maybe big Buddy needs to be more alert and make sure you feel safe.

    1. I considered posting it from my perspective, as Buddy is known to sit in front of me and stare at me for long periods of time. Not sure if that’s an expression of love or attempted intimidation, like “Moar treats or else, human!”

      But it’s funnier if Buddy is the paranoid one, and we all know cats like to hide…
