"Well, I remember it as though 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 the Tigers that hung around the hot spot in those days.
The sight was beyond belief!
Many a head snapped double, even triple, takes
as this vivacious feline made her way into the delta of the alleyway,
where the most virile of the young tabbys were known to hang out.
They hung out 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 straight to the heart of the alleyway.
She knew what she wanted!
She was lookin' for that stud bull.
She was lookin' for that He 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?
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?
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?
Baby, do you wanna lay down with me?
Say b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b

Say baby, do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby, do you wanna lay down by my side?
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?
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?
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?
Baby, do you wanna lay down with me?
Say baby
Say baby
