It Takes a Cat

See that cat sitting on a fence.

His eyes see you in the dark

better than you see yourself

and you might think he's half-asleep

until he jumps down from the shelf.

It takes a cat to catch the mouse.

It takes a cat to say meow

and if you think you smell a rat

I guess you know it takes a cat.

Watch that cat as long as you think you can

because he'll slip away before you even know he has

and if you try to pin a tail on him,

he'll lose it pretty fast.

It takes a cat...

You say cats are lazy and cats are cruel.

Cats are crazy and cats are too cool.

You say cats are sneaky, cats are too proud,

well, who do you think you're talking to now?

Long-haired cat keeps his whiskers clean.

It's his territory, this half-hidden street

and no matter how you put him down

he'll always land on his feet.

It takes a cat...
