Everybody Wants To Be A Cat

This song is by Unknown Artist and appears on the album The Aristocats (1970).

Scat Cat:
Well, little lady, let me elucidate here
Everybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat
Who knows where it's at

Thomas O'Malley:
Tell me, everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat
'Cause everything else is obsolete

Scat:
Strictly high button shoes!
A square with a horn makes you wish you weren't born
Everytime he plays

Tom:
But with a square in the act
You can set music back

Scat:
To the cave man days, cha cha ba dum bo day

Tom:
I've heard some corny birds who who tried to sing

Scat:
Still a cat's the only cat who knows how to swing

Billy Boss the Russian Cat:
Who wants to dig a long haired gig or stuff like that,

Tom:
When everybody wants to be a cat?

Tom and Scat:
A square with a horn makes you wish you weren't born
Everytime he plays

Tom:
Oh a rinky tinky tinky

Tom and Scat:
With a square in the act you can set music back
To the cave man days

Marie:
Oh a rinky tinky tinky

Tom:
Yes

Marie & Tom:
Yes, everybody wants to be a cat
Because a cats the only cat who knows where it's at
While playin' jazz you always have a welcome mat
'Cause everybody digs a swinging cat

Shun Gon the Chinese Cat:
Oh boy fellas, lets rock this joint!

Billy Boss the Russian Cat:
Ha ha groovy cats!

Shun Gon the Chinese Cat:
Shanghai, Honk Kong, Egg Foo Yong
Fortune cookie always wrong
That's a hot one!
(Harp begins)

Duchess:
If you want to turn me on,
Play your horn don't spare the tone,
and blow a little soul into the tune

Tom:
Let's take it to another key

Scat:
Modulate, and wait for me
I'll take a few ad-libs and pretty soon...

Tom:
The other cats will all commence
Congregatin' on the fence
Underneath the alley's only light

Duchess:
Where every note is out of sight

(Jazz music begins again)

Scat & Crew:
Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!

Scat:
Hallejuah!

Scat & Crew:
Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!
Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!
Everybody, everybody, everybody now
