Lucifer Sam, Siam cat
Always sitting by your side
Always by your side
That cat's something I can't explain

Ginger, Ginger you're a witch
You're the left side
He's the right side
Oh, no
That cat's something I can't explain

Lucifer go to sea
Be a hip cat, be a ship's cat
Somewhere, anywhere
That cat's something I can't explain

At night prowling sifting sand
Hiding around on the ground
He'll be found when you're around
That cat's something I can't explain
