Now old Mister Johnson had troubles of his own
he had a 
 cat who wouldn't leave his  
he tried and he tried to give the   away
he gave it to a 
 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, he just couldn't stay away.


Now the man around the corner swore he'd kill the cat on sight
so he loaded  
his shotgun with nails and  
he waited and he waited for the   to come around
 
pieces of the man is all that they 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, he just couldn't stay away.

So he gave it to a man going up in a  
he told him for to take it to the man in the 
the balloon came   about   miles away
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, he just couldn't stay away.

So he gave it to a   going way out West
he told him for to take it to the 
 he loved the best
 
 the   hit the track, then it jumped the rail
not a soul was left behind to tell the gruesome tale.

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


Now the cat was a possessor of a  
of his own
with 
 little kittens till there came a  
blew the   all apart and tossed the cat around
 
the air was full of kittens, but 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, he just couldn't stay away.
