Lyrics THERE'S A CAT IN THE WINDOW
AND HE'S WATCHING
ALL THE BIRDS GO PASSING BY.
HE'D LOVE TO FLY OUT THE WINDOW,
GO WHERE THE WIND GOES,
AND SO WOULD I.
LIKE THAT CAT IN THE WINDOW
WHO KEEPS WISHING
FOR SOME WINGS TO TAKE A RIDE,
I'D LOVE TO GLIDE TO A RAINBOW
OFF WHERE THE CLOUDS
GO DANCING BY.
AND IF I COULD FLY
YOU WOULDN'T FIND ME
HANGIN' 'ROUND
WATCHING THE BIRDS GO BY.
YES, THE CAT IN THE WINDOW
HAS A TEAR IN HIS EYE.

I SHOULD LEAVE TODAY
(CHIP CHIP),
FLY AWAY.
WHY OH WHY
SHOULD I STAY
LIKE THE CAT IN THE WINDOW
WHO KEEPS WATCHING THE BIRDS
GO BY MY WINDOW?
IF I COULD FLY THOUGH,
YOU WON'T FIND ME,
DON'T EVEN TRY.
