Singer wrote the tune when he was at school


Pete Doherty says the first song he penned was about a hamster that met a grisly end.

The singer was in a school band when he came up with the bizarre lyrics.

‘My first song was called Billy The Hamster,’ he tells the Sunday People.

‘It was a tale about wanting a pet and ending up with a hamster that got electrocuted.’

Pete, 29, has made no secret of his fascination with animals, often making home videos of him and his cats.
