Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat Lyrics

Well, little lady let me elucidate here

 

Everybody wants to be a cat

 

Because a cat's the only cat

 

Who knows where it's at

Tell me, 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Everything else is obsolete,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

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

 

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 the horn makes you

Wish you weren't born, ever'time he plays

 

And with a square in the act

You gonna can set music back

To the cave man days

 

Everybody wants to be a cat

 

Because a cat's, the only cat

 

Who knows where it's at

 

When playin' jazz you always has a welcome mat

 

'Cause everybody digs a swingin' cat

 

Everybody, everybody

 

Everybody wants to be a cat, hallelujah

 

Everybody, everybody

 

Everybody wants to be a cat

 

Everybody, everybody

 

Everybody want to be a cat

 

Everybody, everybody
