Liner Notes: 

Teddy is my beautiful, elderly, white cat with one blue and one amber eye. He's in my better shape now. He's hyperthyroid. I feed him all day long. He's around 15 years old.

Lyrics: 

Teddy July 7-9, 2020 #3 Elizabeth Singleton 3/4, dotted half note = c.52

C G C
Teddy is hyperthyroid. His system runs fast.
G7 C
He uses all his calories by playing full blast.
G C
His pills help a little bit. Their benefit doesn’t last.
G7 C
At some point, he will leave us. My boy’s die is cast.

G C
I’m my boy’s special caterer many times each hour.
G7 C
I feed him foods high in nutrients that he will devour.
G C
He was big; now he’s small. He’s losing his power.
G7 C
On his grave, I’ll grow a beautiful yellow sunflower.

C
Hang in their Teddy. You’re still a lively boy.
G7 C G7 C
We loved you when you showed up. Today, we love you more.

G C
He was a handsome fellow with a big cat’s physique.
G7 C
When younger, his long fur was full and sleek.
G C
He’s pulled much of it out; he looks thin and meek.
G7 C
Now he’s old and fragile and getting weak.

C
Hang in their Teddy. You’re still a lively boy.
G7 C G7 C
We loved you when you showed up. Today, we love you more.
