Tomcat Trouble
by Tim Henderson

Tomcat trouble on an old porch swing;
He's dreamin' of the night when the cat is king,
Lookin' down on the feeder where the songbirds sing
With his bad eye...
And dreamin' of a kitty from catnip city
With a deep, dark, silky purr:
A biter and a spitter, she's the mama of a litter
That looks more like him than her!
And dreamin' of a...

Black cat night,
There's gonna be a bad cat fight
We're hoping things will turn out right
For a chewed-up kitty from run-dog city,
Uh huh...

Tomcat trouble on a moonlit night
He's layin' in the alleyway, just waitin' for a fight
Watchin' everything that comes in sight
With his bad eye...
Eyes glowin' pretty to a "Here, kitty, kitty!"
And a million other midnight sounds
Claws kinda itchin' and a tail kinda twitchin'
And a chewed ear hangin' on down!
He's dreamin' of...


Tomcat trouble, hey, what do I see?
He's droppin' on a brown dog from out of a tree
Claws churnin' and a coal fire burnin'
In his bad eye...
There a thrashin' and a smashin' and a trash can crashin'
And lights where no lights were!
A spittin' and a yowlin' and a hound dog howlin'
While that tomcat's pluckin' fur!
And dreamin' of a...


Tomcat trouble; hell, that's what he's for:
Chasing all the songbirds away from your door,
Taking all you give and demanding more
With his bad eye...
Moonlight serenading and a-alley renegading
At the risk of his nine lives,
Moanin' and a-spittin' and a-makin' baby kittens
With the help of a hundred wives!
And dreamin' of a...



(It's very bluesy and cat cool sounding)
