The Cat Came Back

The Cat Came Back
(H.S. Miller)


Just about one of the most memorable and exciting kids' (?!) songs out there. Of course, this is a much tamer version than some others I have heard…

CD Version:

Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat that 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, he just couldn't stay
Away away away
MEOW!

So he gave it to a woman going
Up in a balloon
He told her for to take it to the
Man up in the moon
The balloon came down about
90 miles away
and where the woman is now,
well I cannot say

but the cat came back…

so he gave it to a man going way out West
he told him for to take it to the one he loved the best
first the train hit the track,
then it jumped the rail
and nobody was left to tell the awful tale

But the cat came back…

DVD Version:

Oh, Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat that 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
Oh, the cat came back
(they thought he was a goner)
but the cat came back, he just couldn’t stay
Away away away
MEOW!

So he gave it to a woman going
Up in a balloon
He told her for to take it to the
Man up in the moon
The balloon came down about
90 miles away
and where the woman is now,
well I cannot say

But 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 couldn’t stay
Away away away
MEOW

So he gave it to a man going way out West
he told him for to take it to the one he loved the best
first the train hit the track,
and then it jumped the rail
and nobody was left to tell the awful tale

But 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 couldn’t stay
Away away away

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 couldn’t stay
Away away away

MEOOOOOOOW!
