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
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

I can see
That you're fifteen years old
No, I don't want your ID
And I can see
That you're so far from home
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

Oh, yeah
You're a strange stray cat
Oh, yeah
Don't you scratch like that
Oh, yeah
You're a strange stray cat
I bet
Bet your mama don't know
You scream like that
I bet your mother don't know
You can spit like that

You look so weird
And you're so far from home
But you don't really miss your mother
Don't look so scared
I'm no mad-brained bear
But it's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime
Oh, yeah
Woo

I bet your mama don't know
That you scatch like that
I bet she don't know
You can bite like that

You say you got a friend
That she's wilder than you
Why don't you bring her upstairs?
If she's so wild
Then she can join in too
It's no hanging matter
It's no capital crime

Oh, yeah
You're a strange stray cat
Oh, yeah
Don't you scratch like that
Oh, yeah
You're a strange stray cat
I bet you mama don't know
You can bite like that
I'll bet she never saw you
Scratch my back
