"The Cat Came Back" as written by and Harry S Miller....
Now old Mr Johnson lived all alone
Had an old yeller cat that wouldn't leave home.
He tried everything he knew
To make the cat go away

[Chorus]
But the cat came back the very next day
Thought he was a goner,
But the cat came back 'cause he wouldn't stay away.

He gave him to a boy goin' out in a boat,
And he gave the boy a dollar
Just to set the cat afloat
Well the boat tipped over and the boy drowned
Two miles away, they picked the boy up drowned,

[Chorus]

And he gave him to a man goin' up in a balloon
And asked him for to leave him with the man in the moon.
Well the balloon burst and back to earth it head,
Six miles away they picked the man up dead.

[Chorus]

And he took him to the butcher when the butcher wasn't around
And he dropped him in the hopper when the butcher wasn't around.
Well the cat let out with a horrible shriek,
And the town's meat tasted furry for a week

[Chorus]

Now old Mr Johnson lived all alone
Had an old yeller cat that wouldn't leave home.
He tried everything she knew
To make the cat go away.

[Chorus]
