Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 3]

Oo-oo-oo-ooh, oo-oo-oo-ooh
Oo-oo-oo-ooh, oo-oo-oo-ooh

/ Am G F E Am G F E / /

Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence
Ain't got enough dough to pay the rent
I'm flat broke but I don't care
I strut right by with my tail in the air

/ Am G F E / / / Am - - - /

Stray cat strut, I'm a ladies' cat
I'm a feline Casanova, hey, man, that's that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

/ Dm C Bb A7 / / / Dm - - - / Am G F E / /

Meow, yeah, don't cross my path

I don't bother chasin' mice around
I slink down the alley, lookin' for a fight
Howlin' to the moonlight on a hot summer night

/ Dm - - - Am - - - / Dm - - - / B7 - E7 - / 

Singin' the blues while the lady-cats cry
Wow, stray cat, you're a real gone guy
I wish I could be as carefree and wild
But I got cat class and I got cat style
