I really like that version you posted, Laura and Dixon! The cartoons and lyrics are kid-friendly, yet my secretary enjoyed them, too
The tune is the same, but the original lyrics are more gruesome. MOL! And the cat still comes back!
Here's some of the verses Mama remembers:
Now the man around the corner swore he'd kill the cat on sight, He loaded up his shotgun with nails and dynamite, He waited and he waited for the cat to come around, Ninety-seven pieces of the man is all they found.
He gave it to a little boy with a dollar note, And told him to take that cat up the river in a boat, And tie a rope around it's neck that weighed about a pound, Next day they dragged the river for the little boy who drowned.
Then came the fateful day when war was all around And guns and bombs and missiles were falling all around When the fog had lifted, the fallout settled down Not a single member of the human race was found.
Oh, but the cat came back the very next day The cat came back, we thought he was a goner But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay away........
