The Cat Came Back

Old farmer Johnson had troubles of his own.
He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave him alone.
He tried and he tried to give that cat away;
Gave him to a man going very far away.


But the cat came back, the very next day
Oh the cat came back, they thought he was a gonner,
But the cat came back, he just couldn't stay away, away,

Gave it to a man going way out west.
Told him to give it to the one he loved the best.
First the train jumped the track, then it slipped the rail.
No one is alive today to tell the sad detail.

Gave it to someone going up in a balloon.
Told him to give it to the man in the moon.
Balloon came down about 90 miles away;
But where the pilot is today I cannot say.

Gave it to a little boy with a dollar and a note.
Told him to go up the river in a little boat.
To tie a rope around its neck and a weight of 20 pounds.
Now they tell the tale of the little boy that drowned.

Man on the corner swore he'd shoot that cat on sight.
He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamite.
He waited and he waited for that cat to come around.
Nine-seven pieces of that man is all they found.

The bombs started dropping just the other day.
The missiles were fired in the very same way.
Russia went, China went, and the USA [Sobs].
The human race perished with hardly a chance to pray.
