The Cat Empire

The Cat Empire - The Lullaby

rate me

I cannot say ‘oh sweetness'

like he could

and I cannot play a lullaby

like it should

I'll give you all night movie marathon

and a triple expresso so you can stay awake

it might be late - but

it's never too late for that lovin

my sexy babe

I used to cry but now I have to laugh

because she's got that torment

to a fine art

smart like a foxy

and craf-ty-as-a-cat

i'm looking up

as i'm lying on my back

bite the beast

if i want a big piece of the pie

but she's taken the feast

in the blink of an eye

I can-not-jus-ti-fy

what's going on

- it feels so right

when it seems so wrong

like a plot hatched

in the sweet spot of that trap

- ask what she's schemes

she say ‘oh this and that'

then she snaps like a camera

in black with a flash

puts the drum in the drama

the hand in the clap

she's a map with no bearings

attached - no

safety-in-this-match

fire you can't catch

then zap I was struck by that

bolt before dawn

then by breakfast honey

we was signed and sworn

I'll give you all night movie marathon

and a triple expresso so you can stay awake

it might be late - but

it's never too late for that lovin

my sexy babe

something always telling me

‘save prayers before dawn'

cos what happens when I'm with you

makes me shake my head then smile and yawn

I'm worn out but I'm beaming

and it seems that we are dreamy

as we head out through that strange old morning door

This game is no game

but it's played all the same

and I love it even

if it makes me deranged

it's like tears in the rain

burning spears in my brain

cause me pain sometimes

make me drained

but I cannot complain

- mad the ugly good and bad

had some happy with my sad

and some tricks in my bag

when it's up run a muck

like a bull that just bucked

when it's down it's a drag

and you fight with no partner to tag

- at times I would dive in the sea

to escape from the rising

and crashing malea

drink tea with a fat fish

and find a golden key

then rise to the surface

and open my baby

and maybe she'd say ‘we are crazy'

the two of us together like melbourne weather

be like balls in a maze see

we rolling along in obcurity

but when we meet in the middle

say mmm it's a treat

I'll give you all night movie marathon

and a triple expresso so you can stay awake

- it might be late but

it's never too late for that lovin

my sexy babe

something always telling me

‘save your prayers before dawn'

cos what happens when I'm with you

makes me shake my head then smile and yawn

I'm worn out but I'm beaming

and it seems that we are dreamy

as we head out through that strange old morning door

I used to laugh

but now I have to cry

because today my baby tell me

that it's time to say goodbye

ask her ‘why what did I do?

You and me we were so sly'

then she sigh ‘that's true

we were slinky through and through

but it's sad and it's set

I get high then I get depressed

and I guess when we're together

it's that happy kind of stress'

touching left right down

kiss my finger I reply

‘I can't deny you were the best

and by the best I mean the mess you made

I must confess I never

met-a-more sexy maid

that smell like me

so bless your wayward ways

and loving craze and crazy days

and things you'de say

and looks you made

you're not the queen of hearts

you're the queen of spades

and you'de take my breath away

any day that way

so anyway is this the end?

Is this the fifth act of the play?

I kissed her then I turned

and was about to walk away

when I sense a little tingle

that begin down from below

then I hear her with a whisper

‘you're the most gullible man I know'
