Co-composed by Amy Denio (music) with Jessica Lurie.
Copyright 2014 Spoot Music, ASCAP and 2014 Zipa! Music, BMI.
From 'MYTHUNDERSTANDINGS', with support from 4Culture, Seattle.
Originally inspired by a cat, it developed into a song about superstition.


All good things come in threes
see your fortune in the coffee cream or in the tea cup
it's the seven year itch for the cat times nine
if they're black cross your path ~ and your break out in a sweat the sky will
Fall on your henny penny head
Knock on wood, test the wind, break a leg and say a prayer
Rabbit foot horseshoe, wishing on the first star mind the
Ladders and the cracks, everything thirteen
in the mouth of the wolf, and we hope he bites
In culo alla balena speriamo che non caga!

"Cingulu cingulu ja 'ppè via
....l'occhi rossi lu viria
si nun era 'ppè gamme torte....
Cingulu cingulu era morto...."
