When The Cat's Away


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
