PRIMUS lyrics - Tommy The Cat

PRIMUS
"Tommy The Cat"

Well I remember as though it were a meal ago

Said Tommy the Cat
As he reeled back
To clear whatever foreign matter
May have nestled its way
Into his mighty throat

Many a fat alley rat
Had met its demise
While staring point blank
Down the cavernous barrel
Of this awesome prowling machine

Truly a wonder of nature
This urban predator

Tommy the Cat
Had many a story to tell
But it was a rare occasion
Such as this
That he did

She came sliding down the alleyway
Like butter dripping off a hot biscuit
The aroma, the mean scent
Was enough to arouse suspicion
In even the oldest of tigers
That hung around the hot spot
In those days

The sight was beyond belief

Many a head snapped double,
Even triple takes
As this vivacious feline
Made her her way
Into the delta of the alleyway
Where the most virile of the young tabbies
Were known to hang out

They hung in droves

Such a multitude of masculinity
Could only be found in one place
And that was O'Malley's Alley

The air was thick with cat calls (no pun intended)

But not even a muscle in her neck did twitch
As she sauntered straight
Into the heart of the alleyway

She knew what she wanted

She was looking for that stud bull
She was looking for that he-cat
And that was me

Tommy the Cat is my name
And I say unto thee...

Say baby do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby do you wanna lay down by my side?
Ah baby do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby?
Say baby?

[Repeat]

Say baby do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby do you wanna lay down by my side?
Ah baby do you wanna lay down with me?
Say b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b

Say baby do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby do you wanna lay down by my side?
Ah baby do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby?
Say baby?
