YUSUF ISLAM lyrics - Cat & The Dog Trap

YUSUF ISLAM
"Cat & The Dog Trap"

Cat's in the yard
Fancy free
Dog barges 'round, says,
"You can't catch me!
No siree."

There was a time
When I was younger
I'd chase the tail
Of any danger
About to learn
About to learn

Cat jumps a fence
Lands in a pram
Baby screams, "Mama!"
Out runs the man
Cat gets the can

There was a time
When I was bolder
I'd chase the heels
Of any stranger
About to learn
About to learn

Cat's In a cage
Chained to a stone
Empty Bowl by his side
Just an old fish bone
Dreams of home

There was a time
A long way back
When I would fall
For any dog trap
About to learn
About to learn
About to learn
About to learn
