"Black as the midnight, and white as the snow; gold as the sunshine, my cat of calico." A bouncy and buoyant melody is supported by a folk-song-style piano accompaniment and some easy-to-sing harmonic patterns in this truly charming 2-part original by Andy Beck. Singers won't be able to get enough of the tongue-twisting patter text as they tell the tale of the whimsically colorful cat. Directors can take special pride in teaching the optional cue notes and accented descant that adds a fluffy coat near the end. This piano accompaniment is also found on PianoTrax CD 47188 and can be used with 47653.
