A cat stood on the shore one day,
Iddy biddy winkum doo,
Said he, "I'd love to sail away,"
Iddy biddy winkum doo.
"When I am set to go to sea,"
Iddy biddy iddy biddy winkum,
"A catboat is the thing for me!"
Iddy biddy winkum doo.

He found a boat, and sailed for France,
Iddy biddy winkum doo,
A catfish came along, by chance,
Iddy biddy winkum doo.
To grab it, Kit went overboard,
Iddy biddy iddy biddy winkum,
A storm came up and how it poured!
Iddy biddy winkum doo.

His choice was sink or swim, you know,
Iddy biddy winkum doo,
Most cats don't like the water, tho',
Iddy biddy winkum doo.
The boat went down and left no track,
Iddy biddy iddy biddy winkum,
But just the same, that cat came back,
Iddy biddy winkum doo!
But just the same, that cat came back,
Iddy biddy winkum doo!
