Bootleg version lyrics (including rap):
See, I was smoking in the sunshine on a clear blue summer’s day. I didn’t know where the hell I was, but I thought I knew the way to the funky old cat’s home – oh man, you should’ve seen those street cats moan! (rrrowl) I picked up my guitar and start to play.
‘What the hell you looking at?!’ I heard them pussies cry. Don’t you know I’m James the Cat? I’m sweeter than a cherry pie! I’m the meanest cat on this scene; I play real hard, and I fight real mean. You’re gonna take one look at me, you know what I mean.
[Chorus]: My name’s James. James the Cat. Chasing the birds and the butterflies, yo. James the Cat.
Everybody knows about me, how I like to sing and wail. I’m the smoothest cat in this town, I like to shake my tail. I got blues, bass and guitar, a pretty little woman and a real fast car. You’re gonna take one look at me and know I’m going far.
Now, I go by the name of a cat named James
I'm the illist motherf*er and I don't play games
I'm'a maim you, homey can't you see these claws?
I robbed a pet shop, now I'm running from the law
I ain't a house cat, I run this whole damn block
I keep a bag of catnip right beside my glock
don't pet me, or i'm'n'a castrate a bitch
I keep my milk in a saucer and my food in a dish
The birdies when they come they wanna run around
so I'm raising up a paw, and I'm smacking them down
don't cross me, i can always smell a rat
when i go to hit the town i'm like the cat in the hat
my posse's in effect every time we meet
I just say "meow" and Tim drops that beat
The bass is big, the vocals are hard
It's Joel Lindsey and the motherf*ing Boulevard
My name's James
(my name is James)
James the cat
(I'm a f*ing cat)
Chasing the birds and the butterflies
James the cat
I'm James the cat, bitch
See, I was smoking in the sunshine on a clear blue summer’s day. I didn’t know where the hell I was, but I thought I knew the way to the funky old cat’s home – oh man, you should’ve seen those street cats moan! I picked up my guitar…well, I picked up my guitar…I picked up my guitar and start to play. (2-3-4)
