Originaltext

Stray Cat Strut

Oooooooh
Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence
Ain't got enough dough to pay the rent
I'm flat broke but I don't care
I strut right by with my tail in the air
Stray cat strut I'm a ladies cat
I'm a feline casanova hey man that's that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can
(spoken) Meow . Yeah , don't cross my path !
I don't bother chasing mice around
I slink down the alley lookin' for a fight
Howlin' to the moonlight on a hot summer night
Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry
"Wild stray cat , you're a real gone guy"
I wish I could be as carefree and wild
But I got cat class and I got cat style
 

Singing Call Sheet

Stray Cat Strut

Open
Sides face, grand square
Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence
Ain't got enough dough to pay the rent
Alemande left and you weave
I'm flat broke but I don't care
Swing your girl and promenade
I'm flat broke but I don't care
I strut right by with my tail in the air

Figure
Heads you square thru go four hands around
Find the corner do a dosado there in time
Swing thru tonight and the boys run right
You bend the line do the right and left thru, turn your girl
Flutterwheel all along, you all slide thru
Swing your girl around and then you all promenade
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

Break & Close
Sides face grand square
I don't bother chasing mice around
I slink down the alley lookin' for a fight
Howlin' to the moonlight on a hot summer night
* Four boys promenade go inside the ring
* Swing your girl around and you all promenade
I wish I could be as carefree and wild
But I got cat class and I got cat style

Add. Lyrics break/close (listen called closer)

* Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry
