Does any one know the song "Don Gato"?

Question:it was taught to us by a substitute teacher for 2 days when i was in kindergarten. never heard of it after, and never heard of her too since then.
all i can remember from the lyrics are... " Oh senor don gato was a cat... on a high red roof don gato sat...he went there to read a letter meow, meow, meow...where the reading light is better meow, meow, meow...
hope somebody could help...i wanted so much to sing this with my kids because the first time i heard of it when i was a child, i fell in love with it. many thanks

Oh Senor Don Gato was a cat
On a high red roof Don Gato sat
He went there to read a letter,
Meow, meow, meow
Where the reading light was better,
Meow, meow, meow
'Twas a love note for Don Gato

I adore you wrote the lady cat
Who was fluffy, white and nice and fat
There was not a sweeter kitty,
Meow, meow, meow
In the country or the city,
Meow, meow, meow
And she said she'd wed Don Gato

Oh, Don Gato jumped so happily
He fell off the roof and broke his knee
Broke his ribs and all his whiskers,
Meow, meow, meow
And his little solar plexus,
Meow, meow, meow
Ay Caramba cried Don Gato

Then the doctors all came on the run
Just to see if something could be done
And they held a consultation,
Meow, meow, meow
About how to save their patient,
Meow, meow, meow
How to save Senor Don Gato

But in spite of everything they tried
Poor Senor Don Gato up and died
And it wasn't very merry,
Meow, meow, meow
Going to the cemetery,
Meow, meow, meow
For the ending of Don Gato

When the funeral passed the market square
Such a smell of fish was in the air
Though his burial was slated,
Meow, meow, meow
He became reanimated,
Meow, meow, meow
He came back to life, Don Gato

Google is your friend, by the way.
I know that there is a kids singer that sings the has been awhile it could even be Raffi. Call or e-mail Creative Kidstuff they will have the answer if you want a tape of it. Thanks for bringing back good memories from my CKS days!
