Best Kids Songs – “The Cat Came Back” by Laurie Berkner


Laurie Berkner The Cat Came Back Music begins 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
The cat came back (they thought he was a goner)
but the cat came back, he just couldn’t stay Away away away (can you make a cat sound?)
MEOW! MEOW! 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
The cat came back (they thought he was a goner)
but the cat came back, he just couldn’t stay Away away away (there’s that cat sound)
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, then it jumped the rail
and nobody was left to tell the awful tale But the cat came back, the very next day
The cat came back (they thought he was a goner)
but the cat
came back, he just couldn’t stay Away away away
MEOW! 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!

  1. 1997. I was in an art play. We made cat masks and danced and sang. The nostalgia brings a tear of joy to my eye. I still remember the dance

  2. Fiance 😁😍😘😺💩👩‍🎤👫🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️💁‍♀️💏

  3. This is cute, but the version I heard when I was younger was… Different lol. They gave the cat to a butcher! And it said the meat was hairy for a week 😂😂

  4. This song is a lot darker than I remember. A bunch of people died a train wreck!!! And what happened to the girl in the balloon!?! Am I over thinking this children's song!?

  5. I had a cat who passed away at only 2 years old… I kept having dreams that he kept coming back to me… I love this song! And the craziest thing was that he was a yellow cat like the one mentioned in this song… love it, Laurie ❤😺😍

  6. Why did they wanna get rid of the cat😂☹️ also me and my sister are still listening to your songs. She’s in high school and I’m in middle school 😂

  7. 🇮🇱 מיאו 🐹

    That cardboard cat
    Was definitely a goner… but
    I knew that that… that
    This rhyme would win me honor

  8. I'm sitting here at 1am singing this at the top of my lungs and my son is just looking at me unamused… I love Laurie now I have a reason to watch her lol

  9. Why are none of y’all concerned for all the people who died in this song? 🤣🤣 That cat is a serial killer right? 🐱
