COOL CAT BLUES
(Georgie Fame / Alexander Ryan)
Georgie Fame - 1991
It's early 'n mornin'
Soon be new day dawnin'
Still I'm wide awake
It's not a bout of out and out insomnia
If it were I'd know just what to take
No, this is something I have gotta face
It's a sad, sad and very sorry case of love
Never thought I'd be counting sheep
Losin' sleep and all that
I thought I was a real cool cat, in fact
I never thought I'd be starry-eyed
I can't decide where I'm at
I thought I was a cool love cat than that
Well, you put me down
Like I wasn't even there
Woah, What a clown
You made me look square
I never thought I'd be bugged by you
But guess who hit the mat
Girl, I thought I was some kind of acrobatic cat
Well, you put me on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on
Like I didn't have a clue
You were long gone
Way before I knew
I never thought I would flip my lid
But I did, Oh my!
I thought I was a real cool cat
With the control of a thermostat
My heart goes pitter-pat when you call
Well I guess I'm not a cool cat after all
Come-a-way-down here by a ????? ?????
Like a dog, Oow!
