It's perfect timing, large one...

But who believes in invisible cats? Find me even one person. Sometimes Mr. Lewis's Platonism leads him astray.

We will have to agree to disagree. I do not think people believe in invisible cats, but I think the simile is strong enough to show the point.
(I hope you know where that comes from; I hate to take people's words out of context, though it can't be helped.)

There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

For a fistful of dollars he is ready to kill
His gun is for hire
and he's famed for his skills

His spurs jingle jangle
as he rides into town
and he's searching for
the one man that he knows
very soon
he'll shoot down.

For a fistful of dollars he is
ruthless and bold
His eyes flashing fire
but his heart is so cold
and he knows
he must shoot him dead
fill him full of lead
just for gold. 

(lyrics by Robert Mellin)

I copied these from a music sheet. There are other songs whose lyrics were, apparently, written by same: Silent Love and The Story of Ringo, plus an instrumental from Fistful called The Man with No Name to which Mellin is said to have written words for. I don't know if recorded version of these songs were ever produced: anybody here knows more about it? Here:

people seem not to have a clue.
