lyrics

The sound of the city makes the kitty wanna break a bird’s neck.
And stretch, and jump and fall and sink my claws in bark or in a dog’s nose.

Wanna drink water from the dirtiest puddle, chase a poodle and get in trouble
the most handsome tom in my hood, just making sure that’s understood.

The pulse of the city makes the kitty wanna sneak out a midnight
as sleek as a snake I slink through the grass with growing delight.

Catch a fish from my neighbor’s pond – the one he’s so very fond of
Catch a mouse just for fun, like to scare it punch by punch.

Don’t put me on a leash, if you’ll just let me go,
I promise I’ll come back, and curl up on your lap.
I’ll be the sweetest boy, I’ll fetch and bring your toy,
keep your feet nice and warm, make you feel less alone!

Back home, I’m the king and you’re the lucky servant, I need a backrub!
I like to dine on finest foods you know mice are not for kings!

When I let you pet my belly, you think I’m so angelic,
and I am until tonight, when my wickedness ignites.
