Keith Urban is it “take your cat” or “take your cap” and leave my sweater?

You’ll Think of Me by Keith Urban is a massive hit for the very uncontroversial singer songwriter. However, there is an underground controversy about the lyrics to the song. Let’s let Keith clear this one up himself.

Most of lyrics sites and Youtube videos get this one wrong. Even GOOGLE says the lyrics are  “take your cap and leave my sweater”

HOWEVER according to Keith himself, the lyrics are actually as they sound “take your CAT and leave my sweater”


You’ll Think of Me (correct lyrics)
I woke up early this morning around four a.m.
With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake
Ever since you found yourself in someone else’s arms
I’ve been tryin’ my best to get along
But that’s okay
There’s nothing left to say, but
Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don’t need ’em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you’ll think of me
And take your CAT and leave my sweater
‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me, you’ll think of me
I went out driving trying to clear my head
I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
I guess I’m feeling just a little tired of this
And all the baggage that seems to still exist
It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been
What we should have been
So
Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don’t need ’em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you’ll think of me
And take your CAT and leave my sweater
‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me
Someday I’m gonna run across your mind
Don’t worry, I’ll be fine
I’m gonna be alright
While you’re sleeping with your pride
Wishin’ I could hold you tight
I’ll be over you
And on with my life
So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don’t need ’em
And take your CAT and leave my sweater
‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me
So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don’t need ’em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you’ll think of me
And take your CAT and leave my sweater
‘Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me, you’ll think of me, yeah
And you’re gonna think of me
Oh someday baby, someday
