Simple Kid – Old Domestic Cat lyrics

Stayin' home tonight
Stayin' out of the light
Just gonna potter
Or walk down the flat
Like an old domestic cat

Gonna look at my face
Gonna to stare into space
Gonna talk to myself
See how I'm doin’ these days
Try to come out of the haze

Just to sit reading quietly behind a closed door
Cook food while listening to Radio 4
Don't want no lover or troubles like that
Just wanna stay at home like an old domestic cat

You write letters so well
All your heavens and hell
But you said your glass was half empty
‘Cause your bottle was full
I found that dull

Stayin’ home tonight
I'm not winning no fights
And I got a song
I've been meaning to write
About a cat that sat on a mat

Just to scribble on a crossword while viewin’ the bill
Hmm, start again
Just to scribble on a crossword while watchin’ the bill
Butter on some toast or a glass of cold milk
Don't need no troubles or lovers like that
Just wanna stay at home like an old domestic cat
