Call me trashcan tomcat
I'm as lonesome as a song
Call me trashcan tomcat
And you will never call me wrong

Meet me in the silver starlight
When the dusty day is through
Wiggle through the door to midnight
I'll be waiting there for you

Baby set aside some downtime
Well baby take off your chain
Baby if you got the incline
I can ease you of your pain

Even madness has it's season
Well you know it's difficult
Never ask to know the reason
When you can judge by the result

Call me trashcan tomcat
I'm as lonesome as a song
Call me trashcan tomcat
And you will never call me wrong

Here among the bones and fish tails
Beneath the Mississippi moon
I'll speak of love that never fails
I will even sing the tune

Call me trashcan tomcat
I'm as lonesome as a song
Call me trashcan tomcat
Lonely as the day is long

I will leave you in the morning
When my alley run is through
Disappear without a warning
But I will never leave you blue

I will search among the tatters
And the scaps of people's dreams
Sift the ash for all that matters
Try to tell you what it means

Call me trashcan tomcat
I'm as lonesome as a song
Call me trashcan tomcat
Lonely as the day is long

Just call me trashcan tomcat
Lonely as the day is long
