"Tommy The Cat (live)" as written by Les Claypool, Reid L. Iii Lalonde, Timothy W. Alexander and Todd Huth....
"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 tabbys 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 (no pun intended),
But not even a muscle in her neck did twitch as she sauntered up into
The heart of the alleyway.
She knew what she wanted.
She was lookin' for that stud bull, she was looking for that he cat.
And that was me.

Tommy the Cat is my name and I say unto thee...

Say baby do you want to lay down with me
Say baby do you want to lay down by my side
Ah baby do you want to lay down with me
Say baby?...Say baby?

    General CommentIt's not about the lyrics, d00d. that's just a little humour to go along with the INSANELY good instrumentals. Primus is all about humour and instrumentals, and Les Claypool is the greatest bassist of all time. So instead of insulting a song for having dumb lyrics, try thinking about the fact that maybe the lyrics are supposed to be dumb.

    General Commentok these lyrics are creative, i dont write the lyrics, i express them, deal with it with les claypool. he'll probably tell you to go to a roulette table and tell them they suck. this song expresses claypools vocal skills, i doubt you could sing that fast and play a crazy bass line at the same time. try holding a note singing "he" for 13 seconds without running out of breath or messing up. doubt it. try doing 2 minute bass solo and still continue to play complicated bass lines. try playing a 2 minute drum solo and still be able to continue playing through out the song. shut up and dont diss primus, they could show you up anyday.
