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:
eight lost lives was all he had.
Occasionally sneaked some Sunday dinner.
He wasn??™t good and he 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??¦??¦??¦??¦
