Bardot – When The Cat's Away lyrics

I can't deny
Things have been good
But I don't know why
They don't quite seem what they should
My only evidence is my sixth sense
Tellin' me
You're doing all the things you used to do again

I know your history
But I don't think you can do those things to me

When the cat's away the mice will play
But think about the price you pay
You can run, you can hide
Deny and lie
But words travel faster than the speed of light
So when the cat's away the mice will play
But don't you play that stunt on me
Cause I spy with my little eye
And if I catch you, bye bye

Well, hear me out
When I'm out of town
It doesn't give you a license to fool around
I feel it
You haven't changed
I believe it
You're back to playing your ol' games

I know your history
But I don't think you can do those things to me

When the cat's away the mice will play
But think about the price you pay
You can run, you can hide
Deny and lie
But words travel faster than the speed of light
So when the cat's away the mice will play
But don't you play that stunt on me
Cause I spy with my little eye
And if I catch you, bye bye x 2

They say
That you can't teach on old dog brand new tricks
And baby my friend's tallin' me that you won't change
And maybe they're right, there's just one thing you should know
If you break the promise you made to me
On the count of three
You, be, out

When the cat's away the mice will play
But think about the price you pay
You can run, you can hide
Deny and lie
But words travel faster than the speed of light
So when the cat's away the mice will play
But don't you play that stunt on me
Cause I spy with my little eye
And if I catch you, bye bye x 3
