The cat agrees with everything
He always gets up right at dawn
No matter what the day
Drinks several cups of coffee first
In spite of what they say

He reads the daily papers then
The last guy that I know
Completes the crossword every day
With a black pen just for show

He’s all alone in that big house
Just he and that old cat
The one he talks to constantly
Sees nothing wrong with that

The cat’s the perfect mate for him
He never answers back
He has some white spots here and there
But otherwise he’s black

He’s known as a tuxedo cat
Sounds fancy but it’s not
He doesn’t even know his name
Or maybe he forgot

The only time he’ll come to you
Is when you give him food
Most of the time he stays away
Depending on his mood

The man and cat get on so well
They are the closest friends
The cat agrees with everything
Or maybe just pretends

Some people don’t like any cats
They think they’re too aloof
If you had met this certain cat
You’d say that there’s the proof

But that cat is the dearest one
This man has ever had
And since they need each other so
You know that can’t be bad
