From the Official Troop 78 Song Book
Old man Johnson had some problems of his own.
He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave him alone.
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, Yeah!
The cat came back, they thought he was a goner
But the cat came back. He just couldn't stay away, away, away.
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
He gave it to a man going up in a balloon
Told him to give it to the man in the moon
The balloon came down about 20 miles away
And where that man is we just can't say.
He gave it to a boy with a dollar note.
He told the boy to take it up river in a boat.
They tied a weight around his neck, about a thousand pounds.
They dredged the river for the little boy who drowned.
He gave it to a man going way out west.
He told the man to give it to the one he loves best.
The train skipped the track and then it hit the rail,
No one is alive to day to tell you the tale.
The man 'round the corner said he'd shoot the cat out of sight.
So he loaded up his gun with nails and dynamite.
He waited and he waited for the cat to come around,
Ninety-seven pieces of the man are all people found.
The H-bomb fell just the other day,
The A-bomb fell in the very same way,
Russia went, China went, and the USA
The human race was destroyed without a chance to pray
