Rosie Pearl is a big blond girl
And she sails around like a steamboat
Takes her time and her eyes
They shine for Tom

Hey there Tom Cat
Where've you been to?
Hey there Tom Cat
Say, where've you been to?

I'm so lonely
I been crying
Waiting up for you

Ya hear that!
Ya hear that!

I got your name Tom
I got your children
What about the children?

Tom Cat, Tom Cat
You old rat, you old rat
Where've you been to?

Johnny cheated, Frankie killed him
Johnny cheated, Frankie killed him
Shot and killed him
I don't blame her, I'd a done it too

Ya hear that!
Ya hear that!

You deal and promise
You kiss and swing low
Foot slipping out the window

Tom Cat, Tom Cat
You old rat, you old rat
Where've you been to?

You know you're never gonna make a movie maker, Tom
You know you're never gonna make a movie maker, Tom
You know you're never gonna make a movie maker
Always be a silly faker, Tom, Tom
Never gonna make a movie maker, Tom
Oh, Tom, Tom

Never gonna make a movie maker
Never make a movie maker
No never gonna make a movie maker
Always be a silly faker, Tom

No, Tom, I can't go on Tom
I can't keep pushin', and pushin'
And pushin', and pushin' on
Pushin' on

I quit lovin' you
Lovin' you
Baby, I'm going to the country
Gonna buy me 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
He don't care
He don't care
You know Tom
Run like a chicken from the pen, baby
What'd you say now?

Hey there Tom cat
He walks like a tom cat
He runs like a tom cat
Goes fishing like a tom cat
He cheats like a tom cat
He lies

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

Gonna kill him
My lover man
My man
