Some Cats Know. . ., take two. . .







The old prospector's nose for gold 
The sailor who can read the sky 
The gamblers sense of when to fold 
The trick to making apple pie




These mysteries one can not explain 
This old black art, so queer and quaint 
Like making love or making rain 
Either you got it or you ain't




Some cats know 
You can tell by the touchin'
They don't come on a-huffin' and a-puffin' 
And a-grabbin' and a-clutchin' 




Some cats know 
How to take it nice and slow 
But if a cat don't know, a cat don't know




Some cats know 
How to stir up the feelin'
They keep foolin' 'round 'til you're halfway to the ceilin'





Some cats know 
How to make the honey flow 
But if a cat don't know, a cat don't know




Some cats know just where it's at 
They are not like some others 
I would rather one like that 
If I had my druthers




Some cats know 
How to play nice and pretty 




Nice and soft and soon you're off to Good Time City




Some cats know
How to take it nice and slow




But if a cat don't know, a cat don't know 




He just

don't

know





Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
