Cats Like Us - The Hillbilly Hellcats

Cats Like Us

The Hillbilly Hellcats


Some people try for a pie in the sky
Slavin' away just to have it
You could put all of their dreams at our feet
We wouldn't bother to grab it
They worry and slave, their hours are so long
We're skippin' through life with only a song
And if trouble's comin' we're gone
It's a habit

[Chorus ]
Cats like us got a whole 'nother scene
Our own little walk talk and song
We found a sound on the far side of town
In a place where all cats can belong
In this whole wide world we don't stand a chance
But we'll laugh and we'll live and we'll party and dance
Forever only to trust cats like us

I'm here to report, life is too short
To spend it a slave to ambition
We gotta have fun before our time is done
'Cause we leave in the same damn condition
Some scrimp and save and they always behave
But I swear that they're missing the point
'Cause they ain't got the smile and the style
Of the cats in this joint
