Everybody Wants to be a Cat - 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 were it's at

Thomas O'Malley:

Tell me, everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat

'Cause everything else is obsolete

Scat:

Strickly 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

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 welcom 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
