PRIMUS – Tommy the Cat

From the album Suck On This (1989).

Well, I remember as 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 slidin’ down the alleyway like butter drippin’ 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 for 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,

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 lookin’ for that stud bull.
She was looking for that THE 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?’
(Break)
‘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?’
‘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 babababay?’
‘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?'”
‘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?'”
‘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?'”
‘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 babyyyyyy!!!!???”
