“I didn’t dad, I didn’t,
I was just sitting in the moonlight
There’s no harm in sitting here is there?
I placed this rug down so I wouldn’t get a chill
And it’s such a beautiful night dad
I even brought out my hat to keep off those pesky moonbeams
You know how harmful they can be.”
“You aren’t fooling anyone young lady
There’s guilt written all over your face
And If I’ve told you once I’ve said it a hundred times
Prowling around on the rooftops is no way
For a lady to secure a mate.
People talk, we have a reputation to uphold
What might the neighbours say to seeing you
In an assignation with Tommy, the Tom Cat,
They’d be disgusted as would your mother.”
“I’m sorry dad, but he’s such a nice Tom
I think I’ve fallen for him,
When he’s around, I’m lured in by his smell
I just want him so bad.”
“Don’t be so rude, it can’t happen
That Tom is not one of us
You have to stop this juvenile behaviour.”
“Oh, daddy you are breaking my heart
I may as well throw myself off this roof now.”
“Don’t be silly my girl, there are plenty more Toms in this world.
I’m going inside now, gather yourself together
And come in too.
Oh, and tell young Tom there to cut his claws
They look positively dangerous.”
