April 10 Birthday: Brian Setzer

brianThis Cat’s on a Hot Tin Roof

Well, this cat’s on a hot tin roof
Drinkin’ that whiskey, 96 proof
Don’t need no doctor, don’t feel no pain
My legs are just two steps ahead of my brain

This cat’s on a hot tin roof
This cat’s gonna shake it loose
This cat don’t get the blues
‘Cause this cat’s shakin’ on a hot tin roof

Well, this cat’s been out on the town
I’m the cat’s meow, I’m the king with a crown
My head is spinnin’, I got the shakes
Can’t stop now ’cause I got no brakes

This cat’s on a hot tin roof
This cat’s gonna shake it loose
This cat don’t get the blues
This cat’s shakin’ on a hot tin roof

Well, there ain’t no point in holdin’ me down
I’ll kick and I’ll scratch and I’ll howl
Hey, hound dog, get outta my way
‘Cause this cat is on the prowl

Oh, this cat’s on a hot tin roof
Jumpin’ up and down like a long neck goose
Shimmy and shake, baby, you can’t fail
Rockin’ so hard that it’s off of the scale

This cat’s on a hot tin roof
This cat is gonna shake it loose
This cat don’t get the blues
‘Cause this cat’s shakin’ on a hot tin roof

This cat’s on a hot tin roof
This cat gonna shake it loose
This cat don’t get the blues
Well, this cat’s shakin’ on a hot tin roof

–Brian Setzer
