Lyrics

CORPSE ON THE PILLOW
Cat, she leaves a corpse on the pillow
For the person she must please to survive
One small bird or perfect mouse on the pillow
A live one she captured and carefully tortured
And killed for a special surprise

Me, I used to be the lucky fellow
She would bring her precious gifts and secrets to
Back when I, I was the guy with the pillow
Cat's wicked tongue brought me her cruel funny mockeries
Of anyone she knew

Don't know whether to laugh or cry
Is the joke on Cat or me? (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to laugh or cry
Is it joke or tragedy? (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to laugh or cry (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to laugh and laugh and laugh (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to
Laugh or cry


Then I learned the fear they once felt
That small bird, that tender mouse on my bed
To be carried in Cat's mouth to someone else
A shrink, some new lover, the ghost of her mother
Or some other voice in her head

Don't know whether they laugh or cry
Is the joke on Cat or me? (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to laugh or cry
Is it joke or tragedy? (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to laugh or cry (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to laugh and laugh and laugh (Corpse on the pillow)
Don't know whether to
Laugh or cry

You can tell when she's loving you
By the look in Cat's eyes (Look in Cat's eyes)
You can tell when she's loving you
By the look in Cat's eyes (Look in Cat's eyes)
You can tell when she's loving you (Look in Cat's eyes)
You can tell when she's love, in love, in love (Look in Cat's eyes)
& you can tell when she's...
Look in Cat's eyes

Cat, she was afraid of the pillow
Though it took me far too long to realize
When she came it was her act of submission
I tried but I could not convince her my bed's not
An altar of blood sacrifice

Cat, she leaves a corpse on the pillow
