The cat's in the well, the wolf is looking down
The cat's in the well, the wolf is looking down
He got his big bushy tail draggin' all over the ground

The cat's in the well, the gentle lady is asleep
Cat's in the well, the gentle lady is asleep
She ain't hearin' a thing, the silence is a-stickin' her deep

Cat's in the well and grief is showin' its face
The world's being slaughtered, it's such a bloody disgrace

Cat's in the well, horse is going bumpety-bump
The cat's in the well and the horse is going bumpety-bump
Back alley Sally is doin' the American jump

Cat's in the well and papa is reading the news
His hair's fallin' out and all of his daughters need shoes

The cat's in the well and the barn is full of the bull
The cat's in the well and the barn is full of the bull
The night is so long and the table is, oh so full

Cat's in the well and the servant is at the door
The drinks are ready and the dogs are goin' to war

The cat's in the well, the leaves are startin' to fall
The cat's in the well, the leaves are startin' to fall
Goodnight my love, may the Lord have mercy on us all
