Cat in B Flat (lyrics)

Cat in B flat
My weather radio advised to stay in bed
Don’t fall asleep tonight boy
You’re bound to wake up dead
Was that what Cleo wrote or something Daisy said?
It’s no coincidence that “quatre” means four in French…

Quatre means four in French.

My baby sister moved and left her plants behind
Sold off her tables cheap with flowers to be kind
I brought my new stuff home until I found the ants
Woke up at four a.m. watered my toe and stubbed my plants…

Quatre means four in French.
Quatre means four in French.


That trip to France I heard gave cause to be alarmed
Imagine three long weeks just touring dairy farms
Burgundy countryside upsets the allergies
“Je suis allergique aux produits laitiers “
(that’s milk and eggs and cheese)

Quatre means four in French.
Quatre means four in French.
Quatre means four in French.
