There's a cat on the fence at the end of my yard,
He's not the world's loudest but he tries pretty hard,
Every night when the moon rises up in the skies.
Everyone in this town hears the sound of his cries.
And he;
Howls at the moon for the loves that he's lost
And for all that he's gained at unbearable cost.
He howls at the moon for what he can't get
And for plenty of stuff that ain't happened yet.


Another cat shows up - think it might be his girl,
He's lookin' at her like she's rockin' his world,
But she's staring him cold like some fool on a fence,
So he starts up again as a form of defense.
And he;
Howls at the moon for the loves that he's lost
And for all that he's gained at unbearable cost.
He howls at the moon for what he can't get
And for plenty of stuff that ain't happened yet.


Now here's cat number three and he looks kinda mean,
Cat two's pleased to see him (number one ain't keen).
There's a fight in the air it's so easy to tell
It's two guys and one girl and that never ends well.
So they;
Howl at the moon for the loves they've lost
And for all they've gained at unbearable cost.
They howl at the moon for what they can't get
And for plenty of stuff that ain't happened yet.


The cats are gone now and the yard's pretty bare,
So I pull on my robe and I get on out there,
I grab my guitar and a bottle of booze
I sit down by the fence and start singing the blues.
And I...
Howl at the moon for the loves I've lost
And for all I've gained at unbearable cost.
I howl at the moon for what I can't get
And for plenty of stuff that ain't happened yet.
