  1. Cats Outta Bag

From the recording Jersey Stories Part 1

written 1/21/83-----wrote TWO songs that day. I was living at my sister's house in Scotch Plains, NJ. Wintertime was long and you had a lot of time on your hands being on unemployment. My sister Nanci had a cat named Sam and I figured he needed to have a little fun, and since he was hanging by his claws on the screen door trying to get out-I obliged him. Nanci recently told me he was bitten by a raccoon and had a bandage on his head from that day...oops

Lyrics

Cats Outta Bag

Travelin' down the road of life
I look at things I've done and I
could've have taken some good advice
but I figured I was right

done some things and said some too
played the jester and the fool
done some self destructive things thinkin' I was cool

yea I'll be thinkin' of you
will you be thinking of me?
yea I'll be thinkin' of you girl
I hope you'll be thinkin' of me

Let the cat out in the yard my sister's gonna kill me
cause if he don't come home tonight
there'll be hell to pay
Sambone, Sambone where are you?
wanderin' around the yards
won't ya please come home tonight
yea or I'm gonna have it real hard

yea I'll be thinkin' of you
will you be thinkin' of me?
yea and I'll be thinkin' of you girl
I hope you'll be thinkin' of me

Now the cat's out of the bag
and my shit's up the creek
without paddle, without home
with no place to sleep
Sam don't, Sam don't hear my calls
he just ignores my pleas
his scratchin' claws ain't nuthin' because
compared to what'll happen to me

yea I'll be thinkin' of you
will you be thinkin' of me?
yea I'll be thinkin' of you girl
I hope you'll be thinkin'
I hope you'll be thinkin'
yea I hope you'll be thinkin' about me
