F F6 F7 F6

I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs,
I know your loping stride, babe.
I`ll be a beast if you just come up stairs, but
It`s no hanging matter
It`s no capital crime.

And I can see that you`re just fifteen years old
But I don`t want your ID
Don`t look so scared, I`m not not hair-brained bear

And it`s no hangin matter
It`s no capital crime

CHORUS
Oh yeah, you`re a strange stray cat, oh yeah,
Won`t you scratch my back, oh yeah,
You`re a strange stray cat, I bet,
I bet your mama don`t know that you bite like that
I bet your mama don`t know that you spit like that

You`ve got a friend, you say she`s wilder than you
Why don`t you bring her upstairs?
If she`s so wild then she can join in, too--
It`s no hangin` matter,
It ain`t no capital crime

CHORUS

You`re alone so far from home,
But you don`t really miss your mother
I`ve been so many times all all alone

But it ain`t no hangin` matter
It ain`t no capital crime

CHORUS
