(Original Key: Bbm)

Intro:

Am, G  G/B (x4)

Verse 1:

        G        G/B    Am
Cat's a-sleeping in the sun,
          G         G/B     Am
Eyes take heed; the colours call.
         G        G/B       Am
Sunlight patterns touch the wall,
        G      G/B      Am
Red ker-chiefs sail and fall.
        G        G/B    Am
Cat's a-sleeping in the sun.

Interlude:

Am

Verse 2:

       G    G/B    Am
Dragon kite in the sky,
          G      G/B      Am
Wheel and turns, spin and fly.
            G         G/B   Am
Attacked by rooks and never fail,
           G        G/B   Am
To cry the sound of fairy tales.
           G       G/B    Am
The cat is walkin' in the sun.
G/B     Am
 In the sun.

Interlude:

Am,

Am, G  G/B (x6)

Verse 3:

        G       G/B    Am
All the pebbles I have seen;
         G      G/B     Am
Precious stones for Col-leen.
      G      G/B    Am
Every minute I pass through,
         G       G/B        Am 
With the grooves spent with you.
           G       G/B    Am
The cat is yawning in the sun.

Verse 4:

         G       G/B    Am
Jewelled castles I have built,
           G    G/B     Am
With freak feel-ings of guilt.
        G          G/B    Am
And the words stab to the hilt,
         G          G/B     Am
Pick the flower and it will wilt.
        G        G/B    Am
Cat's a-shifting in the sun.

Verse 5:

      G     G/B     Am
Mario-nette dangles dead,
        G      G/B Am
Insensi-tivity is  fed.
       G  G/B      Am
By the TV wizard's wand,
     G      G/B           Am
Once in the spell, you're conned.
        G       G/B    Am
Cat's a-smiling in the sun.

Verse 6:

        G        G/B    Am
Cat's a-sleeping in the sun,
          G         G/B     Am
Eyes take heed; the colours call.
         G        G/B       Am
Sunlight patterns touch the wall,
        G      G/B      Am
Red ker-chiefs sail and fall.
        G       G/B   Am
Cat's a-smiling it to me.

Outro:

Am, G  G/B (x10), Am
