Lyrics

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!
