Stayin home tonight
Stayin out of the light
Just gonna potter and walk round the flat
Like an old domestic cat

Gonna look in my face
Gonna stare into space
Gonna talk to myself see how I'm doing these days
Try to come out of the haze

Just to sit reading quietly behind a closed door
Cook food while listening to Radio 4
Don't want no lover or troubles like that
Just wanna stay at home like an ol' domestic cat

You write letters so well
All your heavens in hell
But you said yer glass was half empty cos yer bottle was full
And I found that dull

Staying home tonight
Not goin winning no fights
And I got a song that I've been meaning to write
About a cat that sat on a mat

Just to scribble on a crossword while watching The Bill
Butter on some toast or a glass of cold milk
Don't want no troubles or lovers like that
Just wanna stay at home like an ol' domestic cat
