KITTY'S BACK

Live 06 Oct 2002 version

Catlong sighs holding Kitty's black tooth
She left to marry some top cat, ain't it the cold truth
Hasn't been a tally since Sally left the alley
Since Kitty left with Big Pretty things have got pretty thin
It's tight on this fence since them young dudes are muscling in

Jack Knife cries 'cause baby's in a bundle
She goes running nightly, lightly through the jungle
Them tin cans are exploding out in the ninety-degree heat
Cat somehow lost his baby down on Bleecker Street, yeah
It's sad, but it sure is true
Cat shrugs his shoulders, sits back and sighs
Oh, what can I do?
Whoa, oh, what can I do?
Oh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, what can I do?

Catlong lies back bent on a trash can
Flashing lights cut the night, dude in white says he's the man
Well, you better learn to move fast or you're not long around
Cat somehow lost his Kitty down in the city pound
So get right, get tight, get down

Who's that down the end of the alley?
She's been gone so long
Come back, baby
(Here she comes)
Come on, band!
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Here she comes, (here she comes)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back (oh, oh, all right)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back (oh, oh, all right)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back (oh, oh, all right)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back (oh, oh, all right)

Cat knows his Kitty's been untrue
And that she left him for a city dude
But she's so soft, she's so blue
When he looks into her eyes
He just sits back and sighs
Oh, oh, what can I do?
Oh, oh, what can I do?
Oh, oh, what can I do?
Oh, oh, what can I do?
Oh, oh, what can I, all right, well, it's all right
Come on!
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Say, you better get down again, come on!
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Yeah, everybody, come on
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Yeah, everybody, come on
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Yeah, everybody, come on
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Come on, C! Do it, now!
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Everybody, now
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Oh, let's rock!
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
Let's rock!
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, well, it's all right)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right)
Here we go!

Philly! We'll be back, we love you! Whoa!

[Spoken outro:] Goodnight, everybody!
