"Timothy" as written by and Rupert Holmes....
Trapped in a mine what had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Were Joe
And me
And Tim
When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Was Joe
And me

Timothy, Timothy
Where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy
God, why don't I know?

Hungry as hell, no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just
A piece
Of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll take a swig
And then
There's some
For you"

Timothy, Timothy
Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy
God, what did we do?

I must have blacked out just 'round then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light
Of the day
Again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding
Timothy

Timothy, Timothy
Where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy
God, why don't I know?

Timothy, yeah
Oh, Timothy
Timothy

    General CommentI never saw the album cover, but someone once told me that there was a picture of a cat on it (not sure about that). So the mystery was, did they eat a cat or a human? Whatever it was, they must haved liked it since their stomach's were full as they could be.
