As the rain falls
And a huge great tabby gets his Tshirt wet
It goes all saggy and he starts to fret
In the village
And his Mamma cries
Cause if theres one thing that she don't need
Is a cross soggy tabby with a back that bleeds
In the village

People don't you understand
This cat needs a helping hand
Or he'll grow to be a crabby old git some day
Take a look at him and see
What is bound to be
Unless he gives up the pub and goes to church
And finds another way

Well the world turns
And a soggy old man with a smudge on his nose
Has ruined his 'look' and the shops are shut
In the village
And as his street cred burns
He comes straight home to see his Mam
Cause she knows how to wash
And she has some ham
From the village

And the rain falls
In the village

And so...... as you can see, Seamus spent his day doing his usual Thursday rounds despite a poorly back and a by now tatty Tshirt and his Mammy spent hers cleaning him up and making it all better!

Such is life in Daisy World

Clever! But I sure do feel sorry for old Seamus with all of his woes! What's a social fellow to do when your t-shirt is soggy and your back a mess? Meow pitifully for your momma to help you? That's what mine does.

Love me some Tom Jones in the early mornin' :)

You're such a good mommy! Now two out of four of our cats would have allow that, the other two would have had a fit!!

I do hope you can find a more dignified, manly tshirt for the boy! He does have a reputation to up hold in the neighborhood...

hmmmm...I didn't know Tom Jones did In The Ghetto, I know Elvis did it and so did Mac Davis. Guess I'll have to look up Tom Jones' version.

Poor Seamus.

What a wonderful little ditty. Took me a minute to get the tune going with the words. I only remember the Elvis version too.

Maybe we need to send Seamus a care package--a tee-shirt with "Someone went to America and all I got was this shirt"!!!!
