"Kitty's Back" as written by and Bruce Springsteen....
Catlong sighs holding kitty's black tooth
She left to marry some top cat, ain't it the cold truth
And there hasn't been a tally since Sally left the alley
Since Kitty left with big pretty things have got pretty thin, yeah, yeah
It's tight on this fence since them young dudes are muscling in

Well, Jack Knife cries 'cause baby's in a bundle
She goes running nightly, lightly through the jungle
And them tin cans are exploding out in the ninety-degree heat
Cat somehow lost his baby down on Bleecker Street
It's sad, but it sure is true
Cat shrugs his shoulders, sits back and sighs
Ooh, ooh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, what can I do?

Catlong lies back bent on a trash can
Flashing lights cut the night, dude in white says he's the man
Well, you better learn to move fast when you're young or you're not long around
Cat somehow lost his kitty down in the city pound
So get right, get tight, get down
Well, who's that down at the end of the alley?
She's been gone so long
(Here she comes, here she comes, here she comes, here she comes)
Yeah, like that, yeah
(Here she comes, here she comes, here she comes, here she comes)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back in town (oh, oh, all right)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back in town (oh, oh, all right)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Oh, Kitty's back in town (oh, oh, all right)
Kitty's back in town (here she comes, now)
Kitty's back in town (oh, oh, all right)

Now, cat knows his kitty's been untrue
And that she left him for a city dude
But she's so soft, she's so blue
When he looks into her eyes
He just sits back and sighs
Ooh, ooh, ooh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, what can I do?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, what can I do?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right
Ha ha, da, da, da, da, da (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, all right, ooh, all right) all right
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, all right, ooh, all right)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, all right, ooh, all right)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, all right, ooh, all right)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, whoa, all right)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, whoa, all right)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, whoa, all right)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, whoa, all right)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, whoa, all right)
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right, whoa, all right)

    General CommentThe greatest moment of this song is the transition between the guitar solo and the organ solo. The guitar is just WAILING, it's like a train wreck, its sloppy yet beautiful. Then, as the smoke clears, the organ busts out a very melodic, beautiful solo.

    General CommentI hate when people pull the whole "why are there so few comments here" bit…but seriously, why the f*ck are there only 2 comments here? This sh*t is the jam. One of my very favorites, and one of my very favorite albums.

    C'mon, people.
