Stray Cat Blues
I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
I know you're no scare-eyed honey
There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs

This ain't no hanging matter
No, this ain't no capital crime

Yeah, I can see that you're just fifteen years old
But I don't want your I.D.
Yeah, I can see that you're so far from home

This ain't no hanging matter
No, it ain't no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat
Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat
Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat

I bet your mama never saw you fight like that
I bet your mama never saw you scratch my back

You look so weird and you're so far from home
But I know you miss your mother
You look so scared out of my man-made bed

This ain't no hanging matter
No, this ain't no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat
Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat
Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat

I bet your mama never heard you spit like that
I bet your mama never saw you scratch my back

I see your girlfriend and she's wilder than you
Why don't you bring her upstairs
She's wild enough that she can join in too

This ain't no hanging matter
No, this ain't no capital crime

Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat
Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat
Oh yeah, you're a stray, stray cat

I bet your mama never saw you fight like that
I bet your mama never saw you scratch my back
I bet your mama never saw you
I bet your mama never heard you spit like that

I bet your mama never told you
I bet your mama never told you
I bet your mama never told you you scratch like that
Oh yeah, oh yeah
