    I had a dream last night
    God knows a black cat had crossed my trail
    I had a dream last night
    God knows a black cat had crossed my trail

    You know I don't want you to
    Sweep me with no broom
    'Cause I'm afraid I might go to jail

    When my right hand itch
    People, you know I'm gettin' money for sure
    You know when my right hand itch
    People, I'm gettin' money for sure

    You know when my
    Left eye get to jumpin'
    Somebody's just got to go

    I went home last night
    I lay down 'cross my bed
    I woke up this mornin' God knows
    Broken, hungry too, I said, oh

    Lord, this black cat have crossed my dream
    You know sometime I wonder B.G.
    What in the world's gonna happen to me

    Well, I went down to the cemetery
    Got down on my bended knees
    I asked the good Lord above
    To take this spell off of me and I said, 'Woah'

    You know a black cat have crossed my dream
    You know I begin to wonder B.G.
    What in the world is gonna happen to me

    ... Love the blues and I live with this here black cat that I like to paint and photograph. On this image I played a little with the shot she winked at me ... in a voodo way.
