Artist: Ian Anderson
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 "Why?" answered, "Just Because"
He never spoke much, preferring silence
8 lost lives was all he had
Occasionally sneaked some summer dinner
He wasn't good and wasn't bad
My old black cat wasn't much of a looker
You could pass him by, just a quiet shadow
Got pushed around by all the other little guys
Didn't seem to mind much, just the way life goes
Padded about in furry slippers
Didn'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 he'd make it through to New Year
I guess this song will have to do
My old black cat
Old black cat
