Rosie pearl is a big blonde girl
And she sails around like a steamboat! 
Dates her Tom in her arms
They shine
For Tom

Here the Tom cat
Where have you been too
Here the Tom cat
Say, where have you been too
I'm so lonely
Been crying, waiting up for you

Ya that hear me

I got your name tom
I got your children
What about the children
Tom cat Tom cat
You old rag, you old rag
Where have you been too? 

Johnny cheated Frankie killed him
Johnny cheated so Frankie killed him
Johnny killed him 
I don't blame her I would have done it too

Yaa that heaven

You nearly promised
You kissed and swing low
Foot screaming out the window

tom cat Tom cat 
You old rag, you old rag
Where have you been too? 

You know your never gonna make a moviemaker, Tom
You know your never gonna make a moviemaker, Tom
You know your never gonna make a moviemaker
Always be a city fag - oh Tom, oh Tom
Never gonna make a movie maker Tom
Oh Tom, oh Tom
Never gonna make a movie maker
Never make a movie maker
Never gonna make a movie maker
Always be a city fag

No tom I can't go on Tom
I can't get past
Shady past shady pearl 
Sheny past

Rasheen on

I quit lovin' you
Lovin' you
Baby, I'm going to the cunt-tree
Gonna buy my land
I'm going to the country
To kill my lover man
Gonna kill my lover
Gonna kill my lover
Gonna kill my lover man
Gonna kill my lover man
Gonna kill my lover man

You know tom you don't care
You don't care

You know cha

Run like a chicken from the pan, baby
What'd you say now? 

Here that Tom cat
He walks like a Tom cat
He runs like a Tom cat
Goes fishing like a Tom cat
He treats like a Tom cat

He lies

Can I find him
Can I find him
Can I find him

Can I kill him
My lover man (man)
My man
