Father don't you go
Let's just take a walk in the afternoon ... look at me
Mother don't you know
You can only see me through a clouded sphere ... look at me
Walk out on a limb leaning on a cloud that isn't still reveals
Looking down a cliff it isn't fun it's communicating fear

Say what you say, say it like a cat
Say it to my face and say what you know every one says
Say what you say, say it like a cat
Say it to my face and say what you know every one says

Father don't you know
You have made me into a quiet man ... look at me
Mother don't you go
You are a long way away from me ... look at me

I see you as you see me ... look at me
Change your heart cause I am already spoken for
Change your heart cause I am already spoken for

Say what you say, say it like a cat
Say it to my face and say what you know every one says
Say what you say, say it like a cat
Say it to my face and say what you know every one says

    General CommentAre you sure the words say "say it like a cat"? What in the world does that mean?

    General CommentI was thinking that it was "say it like you can't say it to my face".

    General CommentDid anyone else what might be references to Lennon's "Plastic Ono Band" album? That record opened with "Mother", which is all about confronting his mother and father with issues he's had with them over the years. Plus the record includes the track "Look at Me". ("look at me... who am I supposed to be?")

    General CommentI also thought it said "say it like you can't say it to my face" but I'll admit it does sound like he sings "say it like a cat" but the first one makes more sense. I'm confused now.
