  • Two people are alley cats
    We have an unhappy cat
    He is restless, needs attention, loses patience, seeks affection
    Monkey grooms, blossom blooms
    Do you dig germs, The Germs?

    Well we wear each others heads like hats
    Speak in tongues like alley cats
    Cradle them in both our laps
    When we lie alone

    Wear each others heads like hats
    Speak in tongues like alley cats
    Cradle them in both our laps
    And we die alone

    Well we sleep inside a blanket-y bed
    Planted like the crocuses
    In the song my mother said
    She wanted us to sing

    We sleep inside a blanket-y bed
    Planted like the crocuses
    And I wish my mother could
    See the ring I got

    Oh oh there is no pain I know
    Oh oh there is no pain I know
    Oh oh there is no pain I know

    The other night you said you might try to kill that thing I love
    It is too strong for you, it is encased in glass and stone
    The other night you said you might try to kill that thing I love
    It is invincible, it is encased in glass and stone
    You painted a song, you painted a song
    It started when I was young and now it is in my lung
    You painted a song, you painted a song
    It started when I was young and now it is in my lung

    Two people are alley cats
    I get to thinking about our cat
    He is restless, needs attention, loses patience, seeks affection
    Monkey grooms, blossom blooms
