Clean Lyric
Paragraph Lyric
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'cause everything else is obsolete.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,
But 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 a horn,
Makes you wish you weren't born,
Ever'time he plays.

Oh a rinky-tinky-tinky.

With a square in the act,
You can set music back
To the caveman days.

Oh a rinky-tinky-tinky.

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.

Oh boy fellas, lets rock the joint.
Groove it cats!

(music)

Shanghai, Hong Kong, egg-foo-young,
Fortune cookie always wrong.

(music)

If you want to turn me on,
Play your horn don’t spare the thought,
An’ blow a little soul into the tune.

Let’s take it to another key,
Modulate, ‘n’ wait for me,
I’ll take a few an’ listen pretty soon.

The other cats will all commence,
Congregatin’ on the fence,
Beneath the alley’s only light,
Where every note is out of site.

Ev’rybody, ev’rybody,
Ev’rybody wants to be a cat.

(Hallelujah)

Ev’rybody, ev’rybody,
Ev’rybody wants to be a cat.

(I’m tellin’ ya)

Ev’rybody, ev’rybody,
Ev’rybody wants to be a cat.

(Yeah)

Ev’rybody, ev’rybody,
Ev’rybody wants to be a cat.

(Mmm)

Ev’rybody, ev’rybody,
Ev’rybody wants to be a cat.

(Hallelujah)

Ev’rybody, ev’rybody,
Ev’rybody wants to be a cat.
