Happy Family.
A Elbereth Gilthoniel
silivren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, sí nef aearon!

The piano part at the end of Cat Food is great, but I can never fully enjoy it because of the lyrics. 
 
I like all of Lizard including Happy Family, so that gets my vote.

Strange; I absolutely LOVE the lyrics of "Cat Food".

It's not THAT strange. People have different opinions.

Happy Family is one of my favorite KC songs.  Cat Food, while good, is probably the closest KC has ever sounded to you're typical rock group.

^ With Keith Tippet's piano and all?
Now, the live version withoug Tippet's piano and louder bass and drums does sound more like a typical rock song.

I like both equally but I vote Cat food because I love Lake's voice even though this is not the song his vocal style fits in.

Keith Tippett!  If you dig KT, I recommend his then future wife Julie Driscoll's 1969 album....or any of the stuff she was doing with Brian Auger.
 
Oh, and Centipede!  Tippett really has/had a groovy avant style....highly listenable yet highly expirimental.
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

Oh, and Happy Family....I don't really get into Crimson until the Lizard album.
