The Cat Came Back Submit Correct Lyrics

Now, old Miss Johnson lived all alone
Had an ol' yeller cat that wouldn't leave home
She tried everything she knew to make the cat go away
But the cat came back the very next day
Thought he was a gonner, but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

And she gave him to a boy goin' out in a boat
And she gave the boy a dollar just to send the cat afloat
Well, the boat tipped over, and the boy drowned
Two miles away, they picked the boy up drowned
But the cat came back the very next day
Thought he was a gonner, but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

And she gave him to a man goin' up in a balloon
And asked for him to leave him with the man on the moon
Well, the balloon burst, and back to earth it head
Six miles away, they picked the man up dead
But the cat came back the very next day
Thought he was a gonner, but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

"This verse was added by Stephen King, I, I think"

And she took him to the butcher when the butcher wasn't around
And she 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
But the cat came back the very next day
Thought he was a gonner, but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away

Now, old Miss Johnson lived all alone
Had an ol' yeller cat that wouldn't leave home
She tried everything she knew to make the cat go away
But the cat came back the very next day
Thought he was a gonner, but the cat came back
'Cause he wouldn't stay away
