Birth Control To Ginger Tom by The Barron Knights

A parody of Space Oddity by David Bowie

Birth control to ginger tom
Birth control to ginger tom
take your kit-e-cat and put your collar on
Birth control to ginger tom
commencing countdown ether on
checking scalpel and may god’s luck be with you…

This is birth control to ginger tom
you’ve really pushed your luck
and your owner wants to fix you good and tight
so we hope you had a real good time last night
This is ginger tom to birth control
i’m feeling very scared
and my plums have both retracted up my ring
and I wonder what i’ll sound like when I si-i-i-ing!

“Birth control to Ginger Tom,
Something’s missing. Something’s gone….
Birth control to Ginger Tom,
Birth control to Ginger Tom,
Your miaow is higher since you’ve had it done.

This is Ginger Tom to Birth Control:
I’m feeling very frail,
And there’s something gone from underneath my tail,
And I’m walking in a most peculiar way.

Here am I sitting in a dustbin,
Miaowing at the moon.
There’s nothing we can do
Since you’ve been doctored too. “

Birth control to ginger tom
the doors left open and the bother’s gone!
can you hear me ginger tom? can you hear me ginger tom?
can you….

Bowie’s publisher rejected their reworking of Space Oddity as a conversation between two cats (Birth Control to Ginger Tom?) but he succumbed after meeting on Top of the Pops. They’ll win you over too.
