Lyrics for "The Cat Caught the Hummingbird"

Verse 1
When the cat caught the hummingbird
Well, it sure surprised me
I thought that bird would escape to the trees
The way that its wings beat faster than my eyes could see

Chorus
Well, it just goes to show
Fate’s gonna’ fool you again
Only the lucky among us see their beautiful plans to their end
Their beautiful plans to their end

Verse 2
He drew their names in a heart
In the dust on the back of her car
She’s heading out west where she plans to be
A big star in the movies or on the TV

But she figured out
She don’t fit in with that Hollywood crowd
She gave up her plans to be on TV
She’d rather just watch it with him… back East

[Chorus]

When the cat caught the hummingbird
Well, it sure surprised me
