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,
