lyrics

See him wandering through the garden tending to the flowers
An old Cheshire cat who’s grown very fat
Pussy cat, pussy cat where have you been

Supernatural Cambridge baby mending in your flat
you’ll never come back in paisley and silk
Your atomic milk has been spilt on the floor

Smile, Cheshire cat … show us all exactly where you’re at
Smile, Cheshire cat … Cheshire cat

Every year he gets a little better than before
A knock at the door he don’t know what for
But they always keep asking for Syd

Smile, Cheshire cat … no one knows exactly where you’re at
Smile, Cheshire cat … Cheshire cat

Smile, Cheshire cat … no one knows exactly where you’re at
Smile, Cheshire cat … Cheshire cat

Staring through the morning glories pulling up the weeds
Do you have any seeds for the pink bumblebee
Buzzing round your head

Smile, Cheshire cat … no one knows exactly where you’re at
Smile, Cheshire cat … show us all exactly where you’re at
Smile, Cheshire cat … Cheshire cat
Smile, Cheshire cat … Cheshire cat
