Subject: Lyr Req: Tom the Cat
From: Morticia
Date: 11 Sep 06 - 11:29 AM

Heard at Sidmouth this year, in the Middle Bar but I didn't have the presence of mind to ask the unknown gentleman for the words. It's to the tune of Sam Hall ( Chimney sweep)and the first verse was:

Oh my name is Tom the Cat
Feed my face, feed my face
Oh my name is Tom the Cat, feed my face
Oh my name is Tom the Cat,
And I'm getting rather fat
But let's not speak of that
Feed my face

Anyone got more of it?

Seems to work to the tune of 'My Name is Captain Kidd' aka 'William Kidd' also.

thomas cat


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

This song is performed by Alien Folklife and appears on the album Double Vision (1997).

Oh, my name is Thomas Cat
Feed my face
Yes, my name is Thomas Cat
Feed my face
Oh, 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 (*mrow*)
I'm a hunter bold and true
Yes, I've caught a mouse or two
Look, I've brought one home for you
Lucky you

Oh, I've got a big hairball
*kock kack kock*
Yes, I've got a big hairball
*kack kock... kack*
Yes, I've got a big hairball
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

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

You are welcome. If I had the brains of yer average turnip I'd have messaged you. It would be a great song to play for cat lovers. Best to you.
