Ev'rybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
Everbody's picking up on that bee lined bees
'Cause everything else is obsolete

Now squell with the horn makes you wish you weren't born
Every time you place
With the square in the act you could send music back
To the caveman days

I've heard some chronic birds who drive insane
But the cat's the only cat who knows how to swim
Who wants to take along and give us stuff like that
But ev'rybody wants to be a cat

Ev'rybody wants to be a cat
'Cause a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
While playing jazz you always have
A welcome mat
'Cos everybody digs a swinging cat

A square with a horn
Makes you wish you weren't born
Every time he plays
Oh, with a square in the act
You can set this 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
Or stuff like that?
When everybody wants to be a cat, meow!

(Groovy cat!)
-Everybody wants to be a cat-
(Dimie Cat on the track) -Oooh-
-Everybody wants to be a cat-
-Everybody wants to be a cat-
-Everybody-
Everybody wants to be a cat

If you want to turn me on
Play your horn, don't spare the tone
And blow a little soul into the tune
Let's take it to another key
Modulate, and 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 every note is out of sight...

Everybody
Everybody
Everybody wants to be a cat
(Hallelujah)

Everybody wants to be a cat
