Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh,
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


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

Yeah don't cross my path


I don't bother chasing mice around
I slink down the alley way looking for a fight
Howling to the moonlight on a hot summer night
Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry,
"Wild 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.


I don't bother chasing mice around
I slink down the alley way looking for a fight
Howling to the moonlight on a hot summer night
Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry,
"Wild 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.
