You Can't Housebreak An Alley Cat
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I come in the front door; she goes out the back
She got a straight razor in her shoe
She don't pay me no mind and that's a fact
You gotta know, she a breathtakin' view
I want her so much, I can't get enough
I just don't know what to do
I spend all my time tryin' to make her see
Just how bad she treatin' me

CHORUS
You can't housebreak an alley cat
She be cruisin' the boulevard
She told me if I had a problem with that
She just take the whole nine yards
We ain't gonna have no friendly chat
She hold me in high disregard
No, you can't housebreak an alley cat
'Cause she just who she are

TURNAROUND

VERSE
I caught her with him; she denied it all
Asked me if I wanted to fight
"Hell, no, I'm a lover; I ain't gonna brawl
Just come home right now tonight."
She told me I could leave; she would do as she pleased
Now I'm thinkin' I've had enough
This time, I told her, there'll be no reprieve
She think she really hot stuff

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

BRIDGE
Alley cats can't live in the house
'Cause they just don't know how to act
You can give them all your love
But they just can't love you back

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Don't know why I tried, but now I know for sure
I can't housebreak a hard rock alley cat
