Quotes:

Women are still throwing their undies at me in concert but now the panties are quite a bit larger than they used to be.
Submitted by: LucidLupin
I always feel a bit guilty when Catherine Zeta Jones talks to me and I can't converse with her in Welsh.

Let's not complain about why things don't work. Let's see if we can come up with something that we can all get behind.

I haven't become an American! Having a house in LA is just where the house is. It's just a convenience thing living there. I carry Wales around inside me. I'd consider moving back there one day. I never really left.

I like to drink to suit my location.

I've always worn jewellery but for a time it went out of fashion. Like grungy and punk bands didn't wear jewellery because it was stupid.

You can't be a sexy person unless you have something sexy to offer. With me, it's my voice: the way that I sing, the way I express myself when I sing

"What's New Pussycat?"

Democrats, Democrats
We hate you

Yes, I do!

"The Young New Mexican Puppeteer"
Better Lyrics:
The old Old Mexican Puppeteer
He caused the people to live in fear
He knew that they wouldn't listen to
A puppet telling them what to do!
So he stole some paint and he stole some wood
He did some carving and it was no good
And people went running so they wouldn't hear
The old Old Mexican Puppeteer!
Original Lyrics:
The young New Mexican Puppeteer
He saw the people would live in fear
He thought that maybe they'd listen to
A puppet telling them what to do!
So he got some paint and he got some wood
He did some carving and it was real good
And people came running so they could hear
The young New Mexican Puppeteer!

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Without Love (There Is Nothing)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I have conquered the world
All but one thing did I have
Without love I'd have nothing at all
Why They're Nonsensical:
No person can conquer the world. No one can have all but one thing. And a person can still have things even without love.
Submitted by: Candy Welty
"Mama Told Me Not To Come"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Mama told me not to come
He said
Why They're Nonsensical:
I am not sure whether to submit this to the nonsensical or insulting lyrics page, so I have put it on both. Tom Jones is referring to his mama as a 'he'. This makes no sense because she is clearly a woman, but it's also insulting if you think how you would feel if you were female and someone referred to you as 'he'. Unless she had a sex change.....
Submitted by: Sylence

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"She's A Lady"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Always treat her with respect,
I never would abuse her.
Why They're Insincere:
If Tom never would abuse her, then he would know when to stop singing to her.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Delilah"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more
Why They're Inappropriate:
It sounds like contemplation of suicide.
Submitted by: Alan the Ottoman
"It's Not Unusual"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
But if I ever find that you've changed at any time
It's not unusual, to find that I'm in love with you
Why They're Inappropriate:
An 'If...then' statement (sometimes with the 'then' implied but not stated, as above) is supposed to imply a logical connection between the 'if' clause and the 'then' clause. But in this case it is pretty darned inscrutable what logical connection, if any, could exist between the two clauses!

Comments:
Hot on the heels of Tom Jones first international top ten hit, "It's Not Unusual" he was requested to record the theme song for Peter Sellers new comedy for the fall of 1965, "What's New Pussycat?" Although, not totally as big of hit as "It's Not Unusual", "What's New Pussycat?" was still a major international hit for Welchman Tom Jones.
