He goes on the prowl each night, like an alley cat Looking for some new delight, like an alley cat. She can't trust him out of sight, there's no doubt of that He just don't know wrong from right, like an alley cat. (Chorus:) He meets them And loves them And leaves them, like that "Catsanova" does. That's no way to treat a pal She should tell him "Scat!" Aren't you sorry for that gal and her alley cat? Chorus He don't know what faithful means, there's no doubt of that He's too busy making scenes, like an alley cat. And that's the sad, sad tale of a lonesome quail and her alley cat.
