Thread Name: Chord Req: Mad Tom of Bedlam
Subject: Lyr Add: BEDLAM CATS (Cynthia McQuillin)
Copied from This Site
Parody of traditional "Bedlam Boys"
Saw my tom a groomin' all on a' winters ev'nin'
So much hair had he swallowed there
And soon he was a' heavin'
Still I sing bonny cats. Bonny mad cats
Bedlam cats are Bonny
For they leap in the air and they haven't a care
And they sleep upon your tummy
I went downstairs to my kitchen
For to get them food one morning
But I nearly tripped and I sprained my hip
As around me they were swarmin'
With a host of furious tabbies
Where of I am commander
With shots and pills to cure their ills
To the vet's office I wander
Now I must lock my closet
Whenever I would travel
For they kneed their toes upon my cloths
All my sweaters they unravel
At night like hosts of cattle
All across my room stampeding
With a thund'rous tread that would wake the dead
In their battles all unheeding
