Alien Folklife: Music

Thomas Cat

(Alien Folklife)
Joan Kosby and Paul Mercer
Oh, my name is Thomas Cat, feed my face
Yes, my name is Thomas Cat, feed my face
Yes, my name is Thomas Cat
I am short and rather fat
But we'll talk no more of that, feed my face

I'm a hunter bold and true, hear me roar
I'm a hunter bold and true, hear me roar
I'm a hunter bold and true
Yes, I've caught a mouse or two
See, I brought one home for you, lucky you!

Oh, I've got a big hair ball
Yes, I've got a big hair ball
Yes, I've got a big hair ball
So, I'll throw up in the hall
Then you'll slip on it and fall, ha, ha, ha

Let me out. . . no let me in. . . no let me out. . . let me in
Let me out. . . no, let me in. . . no, let me out. . . let me in
Just open up and stand aside
Yours is not to reason why
When I'm ready I'll decide. . . or maybe not

Time to take my beauty rest, life is hard
Time to take my beauty rest, life is hard
Time to take my beauty rest
On your brand new cashmere dress
Go away, don't be a pest--it's mine now

Well, I ate your parakeet, it was good
Yes, I ate your parakeet, it was good, mm-mm good
Yes, I ate your parakeet
And no more will it go, "Tweet"
And I even ate the feet, crunch, crunch,crunch

Oh, my name it was Tom Cat, what a stud
Yes, my name it was Tom Cat, what a stud. . . I was great!
Yes, my name it was Tom Cat
Many offspring I begat
Till the vet took care of that
That's the end of Tom Cat
