Cat Black (The Wizard’s Hat)

5…CAT BLACK…(THE WIZARD’S HAT)… by Tyrannosaurus Rex
————————————-…………………

*from ‘Unicorn’ (1969)*

Chorus 1:

Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.
Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.

Verse 1:

C Am F G
Catblack, the wizard’s hat, spun in lore from Dagamoor.
C Am F G
The skull of jade was pearl inlaid, the silks, skin spun, re-pelled the Sun.
C Am F G
A tusk of boar with dwarfish awe, sobs on the door where stood before;

C Am F G
A mountain man with sky-blue teeth, u-pon his head a python’s wreath.
C Am
A deer he slew in the dawning’s dew,
F G (Cmaj7)
Her heart was a dagger for a murderer’s brew.

Chorus 2:

Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.
Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.

Verse 2:

C Am
A black toad of jet on a sill cast in brass,
F G
Por-trayed for his sight mysteries of the past.
C Am
A yellow orphan dancer rich in Nature’s costly gold,
F G
Wept for the jailer of time to bless her old.

C Am
But his kiss, he held and shadowed, for the spell of nights are strong,
F G (Cmaj7)
And spiralled like a whirlwind in the childhood of a song.

Chorus 3:

Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.
Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.

Verse 3:

C Am
Catblack, the wizard’s back,
F G
Daubed in doom in his tounge tombed room.
C Am
We of the wind must re-joice and speak,
F G (Cmaj7)
And kiss all our starbrowed brothers on the cheek.

Chorus 4:

(with Scatting):

Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.
Cmaj7 Am F G G7
Aah, ya ya yi-ya, la, ya ya ya, yit-a, yit-a, yit-aah.

(Repeat to Fade)
