King of the Cat Cafe
(Tom Paxton)

A                D       A
Everyone wants to sit with Huey
            E    A
King of the Cat Cafe
                D       A
Just to be recognized by Huey
    B7                  E
Is enough to make one's day
D                      A
He never moves from his corner table
D                   A
Under the poster of Betty Grable
                   D         A
Nothing escapes the notice of Huey
            E   A
King of the Cat Cafe

A - D A - E A -
Doo-doo-doo-doo...

All of the poets look for Huey
Soon as they come to town
He never says he likes their poems
But he never puts them down
Fifteen minutes at the corner table
Under the poster of Betty Grable
Is enough to send them happily away
From the King of the Cat Cafe

Lovers seek the sight of Huey
Telling their tales of woe
Sitting on either side of Huey
They all but come to blows
Pounding their fists on Huey's table
Rattling the poster of Betty Grable
They reconcile and slip away
From the King of the Cat Cafe

Politicians have lunch with Huey
Seeing to the public weal
Having their pictures taken with Huey
Is sure to increase their appeal
Always welcome at the corner table
Personal friends of Betty Grable
Always a compliment of fate
At the King of the Cat Cafe

Huey's table is the noisiest place
In all of the Cat Cafe
Everyone wants to catch his eye
Read him a new screenplay
Huey the perfect patron saint
Huey made from wax and paint
Sends them happily on their way
King of the Cat Cafe
