The Cat Empire Lyrics


Are you ready?

If frizzy hair was a metaphor for festival time
Then this woman is a goddess of that festival shrine
Met her at a jam in a garden of sorts
I must confess, god bless, some impure thoughts
"Show us the money" was the call of the night
But no money could have bought even a piece of the pride
There might have been a sea of people I don't know
Because all I could see was how this woman she glowed so

Why, it's a pleasure to meet you
You look like one incredible creature
Wanna treat you fine, let's dance and grind
Get so funk-inflicted, it's a crime
You're divine you're sublime and well you blow my mind
You're so sly

She caterpillar so good that all the Greeks go, "Killa!"
Break and enter take ya like a glass of milk then (Spill ya)
Saw her coming, what a scene, what I mean she got
That sex coffee bean, but she tastes like vanilla
Well alright, she ignite when we hit the floor
Like the vroom on a super Commodore
Now if it makes a good story, well it's just worthwhile
With her's like dealing stories in a sprinkler style, it's so sly

Why, it's a pleasure to meet you
You look like one incredible creature
Wanna treat you fine, let's dance and grind
Get so funk-inflicted, it's a crime
You're divine you're sublime and well you blow my mind
You're so sly

[?]
Oh, do the Louis
Do the ja-ja-ja-ja Jenni
Do the boom-shak, hit-the-sack, back-seat's feeling alright
Feeling alright
Do the McShuffle
Rock it with a fine stride
Do the late checkout with a do-not-disturb sign outside
Now do the sly

Why, it's a pleasure to meet you
You look like one incredible creature
Wanna treat you fine, let's dance and grind
Get so funk-inflicted, it's a crime
You're divine you're sublime and well you blow my mind
You're so sly
You're so sly
[?]
Hey

[Verse 1]
If frizzy hair was a metaphor for festival time
Then this woman is a goddess of that festival shrine
Met her at a jam in a garden of sorts
I must confess, god bless, some impure thoughts
"Show us the money" was the call of the night
But no money could have bought even a piece of the pride
There might have been a sea of people I don't know
Because all I could see was how this woman she glowed so

[Chorus]
Why, it's a pleasure to meet you
You look like one incredible creature
Wanna treat you fine, let's dance and grind
Get so funk-inflicted, it's a crime
You're divine you're sublime and well you blow my mind
You're so sly

[Verse 2]
She caterpillar so good that all the Greeks go, "Killa!"
Break and enter take ya like a glass of milk then (Spill ya)
Saw her coming, what a scene, what I mean she got

Well alright, she ignite when we hit the floor

I saw them at Wpg Folk Festival as well, I was blow away, awesome music! Also met one of the singers (the one who also plays the trumpet), he was really nice!

Filantrop z Tulczyna

This is one of those songs you heard once or twice and forgot it. And when you found it 10 years later it is just super

No matter what happens in my life, The Cat Empire put me in a good mood. Love life, no matter how hard, Empire make me feel that way.

Jess A

Such an awesome song - got to be the soundtrack to every good day! can't stop quoting the lyrics either. 'S brilliant. :D

Katie Cochrane

Saw them in NYC a few weeks ago, and I have to say, I've never been so hype. Front row, I was breathless.

Marin

Great song, one of my favorites on FIFA 08. It really makes you dance. And the video!!! WOL!!! Great job! They really know what they are doing! It is almost as out of a movie.
