Yellow Cat - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

It's late December

And the New Year's never coming

 

Time passes slowly in a two-room walk-up flat

 

The sun is silent

There's a cold rain's gonna come on

 

No one to talk to but my lady's yellow cat

 

Raindrops falling on the flowers in the window box

 

Plastic roses that I planted yesterday

 

I didn't think they'd die so soon

But they're all withered now

Seems like everything

I touch turns out that way

Well I guess I'll just go walking

The cat's no good for talking to

He don't know what I'm saying

And the rain is always playing on my mind

 

On my mind

 

Street lights drifting through the blinds

That cover window-panes

Blending softy with the bare lights overhead

 

Then together they run swiftly through my memory

 

An eerie image of a strange and empty bed

 

The wind is whipping up the papers

In the street below

 

I got some books to read

But it seems they've all been read

 

Clouds are crowded in a misty drifting sky above

And I wish to hell

I could remember what I said

 

Well I guess I'll just go walking

The cat's no good for talking to

He don't know what I'm saying

And the rain is always playing on my mind

On my mind

 

One crystal wineglass on a table

Filled with scarlet stains

 

Stands alone and empty where there once were two

 

The jug is silent on the table by a broken plate

The wine is gone my lady

And so my love are you

 

Well I guess I'll just go walking

The cat's no good for talking to

He don't know what I'm saying

And the rain is always playing on my mind

On my mind on my mind

 

-End-
