Well, you can keep on talking about love,
but much more than talk it will never be.

Talking is good but not much doing, no…Cat_walking_DSC08739

Once you asked for a space in my heart and
you made it to such an empty, lonely place;
because you seems to have so much else to
do than to fulfill my heart’s desires.

Whenever you came, you never brought me roses.
No, but you always kept me waiting for your calls.

 

 

Well, you can keep on talking about love,
but much more than talk it will never be.

Talking is good but not much doing, no…

Cat_walking_DSC08739Listen, the clock is ticking and I’m leaving.
Yes, I’m leaving, taking my kitty cat out for a
walk, humming my blues for Nancy Drew,
the lighthearted girl I once knew.

My cat, oh she purrs in my bed every night and Kitty’s
mysteries gives me the thrill you never gave.

 

 

Well, you can keep on talking about love,
but much more than talk it will never be.

Talking is good but not much doing, no…

… and I’m walking, walking my cat walk blues…

Explanation: The Nancy Drew character in the girls’ books by Carolyn Keen is named Kitty Drew in the translations to Swedish. I can’t remember if I ever read any of those girls’ books with the Nancy/Kitty character as a child, but I must have as they were very popular and I was an avid book reader.

I actually have a cat “in real life”. Not a kitty, but an eleven years calico cat lady. Some years ago they were two, as I had a black tomcat too.
