From the album fairytale

Cat's a-sleeping in the sun,
Eyes take heed the colours call.
Sunlight patterns touch the wall,
Red kerchiefs sail and fall,
Cat's a sleeping in the sun.
Dragon kite in the sky,
Wheel and turns, spin and fly,
Attacked by rooks and never fail
To cry the sound of fairy tales.
The cat is walkin' in the sun.
All the pebbles I have seen,
Precious stones for Colleen.
Every minute I pass through
With the grooves spent with you.
The cat is yawning in the sun.
Jewelled castles I have built
With freak feelings of guilt.
And the words stab to the hilt,
Pick the flower and it will wilt,
Cat's a-shifting in the sun.
Marionette dangles death
Insensitivity is fed.
By the TV wizard's wand
Once in the spell you're conned,
Cat's a-smiling in the sun.
Cat's a-smiling in the sun,
Eyes take heed the colours call.
Sunlight patterns touch the wall,
Red kerchiefs sail and fall,
Cat's a-smiling in to me.
