[Verse 1]
       G                  G/F#      Em                  Em/D
The Indians send signals, from the rocks above the pass,
       C                 C/B       Am
The cowboys take position in the bushes and the grass,
     Eb                                 Cm
The squaw is with the Corporal, she is tied against a tree,
     Eb                                   Cm
She doesn't mind the language, it's the beating she don't need,
     Eb                                    C
She lets loose all the horses when the Corporal is asleep,
         G                      G/F#       Em               Em/D
And he wakes to find the fire's dead, and arrows in his hat,
     C                              F
And Davy Crockett rides around and says it's cool for cats,
               Em           A
It's cool for cats---!
             (Cool-----for cats!)

[Verse 2]
       G                 G/F#          Em                 Em/D
The Sweeney's doing 90, 'cause they've got the word to go,
      C                    C/B    Am
They get a gang of villains in a shed, up at Heathrow,
           Eb                               Cm
They're counting out the fivers, when the handcuffs lock again,
Eb                                   Cm
In and out of Wandsworth, with the numbers on their names,
      Eb                              C
It's funny how their missus' always looks the bleeding same,
       G                       G/F#       Em                 Em/D
And meanwhile, at the station there's a couple of likely lads,
      C                                          F
Who swear like 'how's your father', and they're very cool for cats,
                  Em           A
They're cool for cats---!
                (Cool---- for cats!)

[Verse 3]
     G                      G/F#        Em                Em/D
To change the mood a little I've been posing down the pub,
     C                   C/B        Am
On seeing my reflection,      I'm looking slightly rough,
   Eb                          Cm
I fancy this, I fancy that, I wanna be so flash,
   Eb                          Cm
I give a little muscle, and I spend a little cash,
    Eb                           C
But all I get is bitter, and a nasty little rash,
     G                      G/F#        Em                  Em/D
And, by the time I'm sober, I've for - gotten what I've had,
       C                          F
And everybody tells me that it's cool to be a cat,
          Em            A
Cool for cats----!
         (Cool---- for cats!)

[Ad-libbed Bridge]

[Verse 4]
  G                    G/F#   Em                    Em/D
Shake up at the disco, and I think I've got a pull,
   C                         C/B      Am
I ask her lots of questions, and she hangs on to the wall,
   Eb                               Cm
I kiss her for the first time, and then I take her home,
          Eb                        Cm
I'm in - vited in for coffee, and I give the dog a bone,
     Eb                               C
She likes to go to discos, but she's never on her own,
   G                            G/F#   Em                    Em/D
I said, 'I'll see you later!',  and I give her some old chat,
     C                             F
But it's not like that on the TV, when it's cool for cats,
               Em            A
It's cool for cats---!
             (Cool---- for cats!)

     G       G/F#  Em       Em/D   C       C/B   Am

 Eb         Cm       Eb         Cm        Eb          C
(Oo ---oo - oo----!  Oo ---oo - oo----!   Oo ---oo - oo----!)

   G       G/F#   Em      Em/D   C              F
