Everybody Wants To Be A Cat

From: The Aristocats
Music: Floyd Huddleston
Lyrics: Al Rinker
Performed by: Phil Harris [Thomas O'Malley]

Ev'rybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
Ev'rybody pickin' up on the feline beat
'Cause ev'rything else is obsolete

Beware of a square
when he offers to share
his milk to sip
If it hasn't been tried
I suggest you provide
Your own cat nip

I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing
But still a cat's the only cat who knows how to swing
A purr between two furry friends may be old hat
But ev'rybody wants to be a cat

Come on, scat cat, turn me on
I'll take my horn and my beat tone
Then blow a little soul into the tune
Let's take it to another key
Modulate, then wait for me
I'll take a few ad libs and pretty soon
The other cats will all commence
Congregating on the fence
Beneath the alley's only light
Where ev'rynight is out of sight

Ev'rybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
Ev'rybody pickin' up on the feline beat
'Cause ev'rything else is obsolete

Beware of a square
when he offers to share
his milk to sip
If it hasn't been tried
I suggest you provide
Your own cat nip

I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing
But still a cat's the only cat who knows how to swing
A purr between two furry friends may be old hat
But ev'rybody wants to be a cat
