Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat - From "The Aristocats"

Lyricist:     Composer:

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'Cause everything else is obsolete

Now a square with a horn
Makes you wish you weren't born
Ever'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
But still a cat's the only cat
Who knows how to swing
Who wants to dig a long-haired gig
Or stuff like that?
When everybody wants to be a cat
A square with that horn
Makes you wish you weren't born
Ever'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 she's always a welcome mat
'Cause everybody digs a swingin' cat
I want you to know
I want you to know

Be ware 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 everybody wants to be a cat
Be a cat, be a cat

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