Wanted: Authors of several songs

From: skw@worldmusic.de

Can anyone help me with the authors of the following songs (I'm not even sure I've got the correct title in every case):
Dead Cat Blues

Elvis Was A Narc (Elvis did it all for you and me)

Mama's In The Sky With Elvis

Transit Van (Ankle-deep in stubbed-out fags ... The roadie stood and wept, he hadn't eaten, washed or slept, jangling one useless key, the van had failed its MOT)

(My Dog) Ulysses

Thank you all beforehand! Susanne

Ulysses: Jake Thackray.
I posted the lyric about 3 weeks ago.

Thanks, Andy and Gene! Can't think how I missed that posting of Ulysses.

Anyone who can help with the rest? - Susanne

Sean Mone, I'm not sure if that spelling is correct, wrote The Transit Van which is a satirical song concerning EC grants available in SouthernIreland and not in Northern Ireland.

Sean writes a lot of political satire which is extremely funny. He comes from the borders between North and South, possibly Fermanagh.

I was in his compnay this weekend at the Iishowen semainar on traditional song and he sang a very funny song about Trimble withe a pimple on his bum.

Quote - How can I sit in negotiation with a pimple on my bum. unquote.

I don't know of any of his recordings. Hope this helps.
