8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
He goes on the prowl each night like an Al -ley Cat,
Look -in' for some new de -light like an Al -ley Cat.
She can't trust him out of sight, there's no doubt of that.
He just don't know wrong from right like an Al -ley Cat.
He meets 'em (Mee-ow) and loves 'em (Mee-ow)
and leaves 'em (Mee-ow) that's what Cat -sa -no -va does.
It's no way to treat a pal, She should tell him, Scat!
Aren't you sor -ry for that gal with her Al -ley Cat?
And that's the sad, sad, tale of a lone-some frail, and her Al -ley Cat.
