My old black cat passed away this morning
He never knew what a hard day was.
Woke up late and danced on tin roofs.
If questioned â€œWhy?â€ â€“ answered, â€œJust because.â€
He never spoke much, preferring silence:
eight lost lives was all he had.
Occasionally sneaked some Sunday dinner.
He wasnâ€™t good and he wasnâ€™t bad.
My old black cat wasnâ€™t much of a looker.
You could pass him by â€“ just a quiet shadow.
Got pushed around by all the other little guys.
Didnâ€™t seem to mind much â€“ just the way life goes.
Padded about in furry slippers.
Didnâ€™t make any special friends.
He played it cool with wide-eyed innocence,
Receiving gladly what the good Lord sends.
Forgot to give his Christmas present.
Black cat collar, nice and new.
Thought heâ€™d make it through to New Year.
I guess this song will have to do.
My old black catâ€¦â€¦â€¦.
Old black catâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦
