Kent’s Songs A-Z – Virgil and the Beancat

I don’t have a single song that begins with U so on to the one song I have that begins with V.

This week’s song is Virgil and the Beancat. I co-wrote it with Rick Paul. Listen the the MP3:

This is a song about our old and beloved pets, Virgil (the dog) and Beanie (the cat). One time at our old house, Beanie, who was a totally inside cat and must have already been 15 or so by that time, darted out the back door and ran straight into the swimming pool. She swam to the steps and ran even faster back into the house. The entire ordeal lasted about 15 seconds.

Around the same time, Beanie would walk around the house meowing for no apparent reason and Virgil ran away for a few hours to parts unknown.

This song was the result.

The word she wants to say is, of course, meow. The reference to his having been there once or twice refers to the time he ran away. When I first saw Beanie at the pound, she was with another cat, her brother. By the time I went back to adopt her, her brother had already been adopted. I always wished I’d adopted him too so they could stay together. Thus, the brother line.

It’s sort of a goofy song, but because I miss Virgil and Beanie so much, it has a special place in my heart.

Lots of music topics and a podcast at Newsome.Org.
