Di' Khatz chommt wieder (The Cat comes again) [Swiss German]

Heard this wonderful song on DRS 1 -- didn't understand much but it sounds beautiful. Does anyone know of this one? I shall be immensly thankful for the full text (and a high german translation )

If you posted this straight after hearing it, I'm guessing it's
20.38-20.41 AM SEPP SEY CHATZ von LT WILTI-GRUESS

The playlist with every song on DRS1 is at http://www.drs1.ch/www/de/drs1/sendu...recherche.html

Can't find the lyrics, but the title means Sepp's Cat. LT means Ländlertrio.

This is exactly the thing -- can't understand the lyrics though.
Thanks for posting!

Re: Di' Khatz chommt wieder (The Cat comes again) [Swiss German]

Ok, here is the first part and the Refrain in some poor english:

Sepp has a cat that reproduces very fast
thats why he gives the cat as a present to his godchild
he takes a basket and puts the animal in it
and wrote "she is yours forever"

Refrain:
But the cat returns, suddenly she stands there
The cat returns with the kittens arranged behind
You won't believe it, it's kind of gruesome (not sure about that)
miau, miau, miau, in front of the house she stands

Now you can rearrange it and make a nice english version.
