Old Black Cat
1st
Who so full of fun and glee?
Happy as a cat can be
Polished sides so nice and fat
Oh how I love my old black cat.

Chorus—
Poor kitty, oh poor kitty.
Sitting so cozy, close to the fire.
Pleasant purring pretty pussy
Frisky full of fun and fussy
Mortal foe of mouse and rat
Oh how I love my old black cat.
Yes-I-do.

2nd
Then the boys to make her run
Call the dogs and set them on
Quickly I put on my hat
And fly to save my old black cat
Chorus—
