Old Mr. Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat that would never leave him alone
He tried and tried to keep that 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 wouldn't stay away
They put it in a cotton sack and gave it to a girl
Who'd started on her bicycle to ride round the world
Well, over there in China a terrible wreck was found
She's singing now in heaven with the angels all around

They gave it to a man going up in a balloon
They told him to give it to the man in the moon
The balloon it burst and everybody said
Ten miles away they picked the man up dead

The man on the corner said he'd shoot the cat on sight
He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamite
He hid in the garden until the cat came round
And 97 pieces of that man were all they found
