Where is she?
If she said she'd be going out tomcatting
if she said that she'd be out all night.
I'd have said to her, go to it darling
but she didn't and it didn't feel right.
I was pacing the room and then asking
myself where did I go wrong?
Where is she and what is she doing?
Has she met up with some handsome Tom?
She's never been out at this hour
she's always at home before ten
and now that its two in the morning
I'm frantic and thinking about men.
I do know the way that they're thinking
I do know the way that they act
There's ulterior motives behind them
It's sex, and aint that a fact.
I'll give her a roasting for this,
making me go through this hell
I'll ban her from going in future
and I'll nail up the cat flap as well.
But wait, what's that noise? Am I dreaming?
Was the cat flap just slamming down tight?
Here she is now and she's smiling
Hello darling, did you have a good night?
Well, she's almost human.
