The cat's in the well, the wolf is lookin' down The cat's in the well, the wolf is lookin' down He got his big bushy tail draggin' all over the ground. Cat's in the well, the gentle lady is asleep Cat's in the well, gentle lady is asleep She ain't hearin' a thing, the silence is a-stickin' her deep. The cat's in the well an' grief is showin' its face The world's bein' slaughtered, it's such a bloody disgrace. The cat's in the well, horse is goin' bumpety bump Cat's in the well an' the horse is goin' bumpety bump Back alley Sally is doin' the american jump. Cat's in the well an' papa is readin' the news His hair's fallin' out an' all of his daughters need shoes. The cat's in the well an' the barn is full of the bull The cat's in the well an' the barn is full of the bull The night is so long an' the table is oh, so full. Cat's in the well an' the servant is at the door The drinks are ready an' the dogs are goin' to war. The cat's in the well, leaves are startin' to fall Cat's in the well, leaves are startin' to fall Good night, my love, may the lord have mercy on us all.
