Well I don't know where they come from, but they sure do come
I hope they're comin' for me
And I don't know how they do it, but they sure do it good
I hope they're doin' it for free
They give me cat scratch fever, cat scratch fever
Well the first time that I got it, I was just 10 years old
Got it from some pussy next door.
Well I went to see the doctor and he gave me the cure... I think I
wanted some more.
They give me cat scratch fever, cat scratch fever.
I got it bad scratch fever, cat scratch fever
It's nothin' dangerous, I feel no pain
I got it, shame, shame, shame
You know you got it when you go insane
It makes a grown man cry, cry
Won't you be my babe?
Well I made her pussy purr with the stroke of my hand
They know they're gettin' it from me
And they know just where to go when they need a lovin' man
They know I'm doin' it for free
I give 'em cat scratch fever, cat scratch fever
They got it bad scratch fever, cat scratch fever...
