Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat

This song is by Charles Perry and appears on the compilation We Love Disney (2015).

This song is a cover of "Ev'rybody Wants To Be A Cat" by Phil Harris.
Everybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
Everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat
'Cause everything else is obsolete

A square with a horn
Makes you wish you weren't born
Every time he plays
But with a square in the act
You can set music back
To the caveman days

I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing
Still a cat's the only cat
Who knows how to swing
Who wants to dig a long-haired gig stuff like that?
When everybody wants to be a cat

A square with a horn
Makes you wish you weren't born
Every time he plays
With a square in the act
You can set music back
To the caveman days

Everybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
When playin' jazz he always has a welcome mat
'Cause everybody digs a swingin' cat

I want you to know
I want you to know

Beware of the squirrel when he offers to share
His milk to sip
If he hasn't been try
I suggest you provide your own catnip

Everybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat
Who knows where it's at
Everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat
'Cause everything wants to be a cat
Be a cat, be a cat

Everybody, everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody, everybody
Everybody, everybody, everybody
