There's a black man with a black cat
Living in a black neighborhood

You know, he thinks, he's got it so good

What most people don't realize is that this song is criticizing american culture, not glorifying it.

I found it quite amusing when after 9-11 they started playing this song on the radio continuously . That is, until they realized how cynical the words are. They played it just because it had America in it.

Yeah Sarah, so did I!! Sure does bring back those sweet memories though!

I absolutely love this song because it brings back memories since I once lived in a Pink House - Hahaha : )
