The last time I saw Monty

Life sure is full of surprices. Yesterday on my way to the subway, my dear friend Johan drives up next to me in his new convertible. He asks me if I wanna go with him to have lunch with Tom Jones. "Whatever you do though" he says with a straight face, "Don't start singing 'What's new, Pussycat?'" Johan knows that whenever I meet a songwriter, whomever it is, something inside forces me to start singing one of their songs. It's really stupid, still there's nothing I can do about it. So I say "no, but thanks" and continue my way toward the trains. "Tom Jones, Jesus, he's a legend". I make my way pass the controls. "Oh well, pussycat, pussycat I love you..."
