Muddy Waters - Crosseyed Cat Lyrics

Yeah I'm so sorry,
I got to leave my woman alone
Yeah I'm so sorry,
I got to leave my woman alone
Well you know she got a crosseyed cat,
Livin' without that man in her home

Every time I start to see this woman,
He's in the corner growlin' or layin' down
Every time I start to see this woman,
He's in the corner growlin' or layin' down
Yeah, you know he's too big to be a house cat,
And he's too small to be a lion
There's somethin' wrong

Yeah, I stop by my baby's house,
He start jumpin' from wall to wall
Yeah, I stop by my baby's house,
He start jumpin' from wall to wall
Then he's lookin' crosseyed at me,
Sit back in the corner and licked his paw

Yeah, my woman got a crosseyed cat,
Livin' there with her in her home
Yeah, my woman got a crosseyed cat,
Livin' there with her in her home
You know I try so hard to do her right,
But it seem like everything I do is wrong
