Now, old Miss Johnson lived all alone,
Had an ol' yeller cat that wouldn't leave home.
Tried ev'rything 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.
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,
2 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, an back to Earth it head,
6 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 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.
Tried evrything 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!
