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'cause everything else is obsolete

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

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
Congregatin' on the fence
Underneath the alley's only light

Where every note is out of sight

Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!
Hallejuah!
Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!
I'm telling you!
Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!
Yeah!
Everybody, everybody, everybody wants to be a cat!
Mmmm!
