The Cat Came Back

Old man Johnson had troubles of his own

He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave his home

He tried and he tried to give that cat away

But each time he did it came back the next day, oh...


The cat came back, the very next day

Oh, the cat came back, they thought he was a goner

But the cat came back

He just wouldn't stay away, away, away, yeah, yeah, yeah

He gave it to a man going way out west

He told him for to give it to the one he loved best

The train hit the curb and then it jumped the rail

And no one is alive to tell the gruesome tale, but...

He gave it to a man going up in a balloon

He told him for to give it to the man on the moon

The balloon came down about ninety miles away

And where that man is today, I cannot say, but...

He gave it to a boy, with a dollar note

He told him for to take it to the river in a boat

Tied a rock around it's neck, it must a weighed a hundred pounds

And now they're dragging the river for the little boy that drowned, but...

Old man Johnson swore he'd shoot that cat on sight

So he loaded up his shotgun with six sticks of dynamite

He waited on the corner for the cat to come around

But ninety seven pieces of man were all that they found, but...


The H-bomb fell just the other day

The A-bomb fell in the very same way

England went (boom), Russia went (boom), and then the USA (Cabloowee)

The human race was destroyed, without a chance to pray,

However, oh....
