The Cat Came Back Song Lyrics

Old Mister Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat that just wouldn’t leave his home
He tried and he tried to give the cat away,
He gave it to a man going far, far away.

But the cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, it just wouldn’t stay away!

The man around the corner swore he’d kill the cat on sight,
He loaded his supplies of heavy nails and dynamite
He waited and he waited for the cat to come around,
Ninety seven pieces of the man is all they ever found!

But the cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, it just wouldn’t stay away!

He gave it to a man going up in a balloon,
He told him for to take it to the man up in the moon.
The balloon came down,  deflated, about ninety miles away,
And where the man is now, well I dare not say.

But the cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, it just wouldn’t stay away!

Now the cat was a possessor of a family of its own,
With seven little kittens, ’till there came a cyclone;
It blew the houses all apart and tossed the cat around,
The air was full of kittens, and not a one was ever found!

But the cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back,  it just wouldn’t stay away!

The cat came back the very next day,
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back, it just wouldn’t stay away!
