Like a Cat

I lived in your shadow, I drove you car
You thought I belonged in your four walls
I was never your bunny
I was never, never your pet
When you threw me out the window I landed on my feet
Yes, you threw me out the window like a, like a, like a cat

CHORUS:
Well, mister, you could never own me
I only let you hold me like a cat
Oh, mister, you could never know me
I only let you stroke me like a, like a (meow)

You thought I’d be purring, curled up by your fire
Don’t want to be kept for your desire
You said I should be happy
But it only made me sad
And when you could never tame me, that made you mad
Ah, you could never tame me like a, like a, like a cat

CHORUS:
Well, mister, you could never own me
I only let you hold me like a cat
Oh, mister, you could never know me
I only let you stroke me

BRIDGE:
You rescued me, I didn’t want to be saved
I got tired of your missionary position, babe

SOLO

When you threw me out the window I landed on my feet
And you threw me out the window like a, like a, like a cat

REPEAT CHORUS

You could never own me like a cat
You could never own me like a cat...
