Calico by Glass Beach

(This is an unfinished page!)

Description:

Calico is a comforting song for any gender non-conforming people. The singer is comforting a male calico cat, who is an allegory for gender non-conforming people! Calico cats are almost always female, so he/him pronouns used to describe a calico cat gives the cat a bit of gender-nonconformity, through which transgender listeners can relate. With the lyrics “Calico, don’t go” and “you’re not gonna leave him alone” the singer comforts the listener and reminds them that there are people out there that care about them and want to protect them.

Full song lyrics:

Some stray cat came through the backyard
Must have climbed up some fences

You’ll pick him up off the ground
and you’ll hold him in your arms
and you’ll kiss him on the head
and you’ll tell him he’s a lucky boy

Pick him up off the ground
and you’ll hold him in your arms
and you’ll kiss him on the head
and you’ll tell him he’s a lucky little
(Calico, don’t go)

You’re not gonna leave him alone
You’re not gonna leave him alone
You’re not gonna leave him alone
You’re not gonna leave him alone
