Subject: Stray Cat Blues Lyrics

 

Someone had asked for the lyrics to "Stray Cat Blues" by the Rolling Stones.

 

This is as near as I can figure out:

 

I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs,

I know your loping stride, babe.

I'll be a beast if you just come up stairs, but

It's no hanging matter

It's no capital crime.

 

And I can see that you're just fifteen years old

But I don't want your ID

Don't look so scared, I'm not not hair-brained bear

 

And it's no hangin matter

It's no capital crime

 

CHORUS

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

Won't you scratch my back, oh yeah,

You're a strange stray cat, I bet,

I bet your mama don't know that you bite like that

I bet your mama don't know that you spit like that

 

You've got a friend, you say 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 hangin' matter,

It ain't no capital crime

 

CHORUS

 

You're alone so far from home,

But you don't really miss your mother

I've been so many times all all alone

 

But it ain't no hangin' matter

It ain't no capital crime

 

CHORUS
