{fade to Paris rooftops}

Duchess: Thomas, Madame will be so worried. Are you sure we can't get home

tonight?

Marie: Mama, I'm tired.

Berlioz: Me too, and my feet hurt.

O'Malley: Look baby, it's late, and the kids are bushed.

Toulouse: I'll bet we walked a hundred miles.

Berlioz: I'll bet it's more than a thousand.

Duchess: Now, now, darlings. Cheer up. Mister O'Malley knows a place where we

can stay tonight.

Toulouse: How much farther is it, mister O'Malley?

O'Malley chuckles: Keep your whiskers up, tiger. It's just beyond the next 

chimney pot. Well, there it is. My own penthouse pad.

It's not exactly the Ritz, but it's peaceful and quiet.

[Trumpet blows]

Oh! Oh, no. Sounds like Scat Cat and his gang have dropped by.

Duchess: Oh. Friends of yours?

O'Malley: Uh-huh. Yeah. They're old buddies and the're real swingers.

Duchess: Swingers? What is a swinger?

O'Malley: You know. Uh, not exactly your type, Duchess. Maybe we'd better

find another place, huh?

Duchess: Oh no, no, no, I would like to see yor pad, and meet your Scat Cat.

O'Malley: Well, okay.

[They look down from a roof window]

O'Malley: Hey, Scat Cat! Blow some of that sweet stuff my way!

Scat Cat laughs: Well, looky here! Big man O'Malley is back in his alley!

Swing on down here, daddy.

O'Malley: Lay some skin on me, Scat Cat, yeah!

Italian Cat: Buona sera, paesano!

English Cat: Welcome home, O'Malley!

O'Malley: Duchess, this is the greatest cat of 'em all.

Duchess: Oh, I'm delighted to meet you, monsieur Scat Cat.

Scat Cat kisses her paw: Likewise, Duchess. You're too much.

Duchess: Oh, ho, ho. You are charming! And your music it so-- so different.

But so exiting.

Berlioz: It isn't Beethoven, mama, but it sure bounces.

Scat Cat chuckles: Say! This kitten cat knows where it's at!

Marie: Knows where what's at?

Scat Cat: Well, little lady, let me elucidate here.

Scat Cat: Everybody wants to be a cat

Because a cat's the only cat

Who knows where it's at

O'Malley: Tell me!

Everybody's pickin' up on that feline beat

'Cause everything else is obsolete

Scat Cat: Strictly high-button shoes.

O'Malley: A square with a horn

Makes you wish you weren't born

Scat Cat: Everytime he plays.

O'Malley: But with a square in the act

You can set music back

Scat Cat: To the caveman days

[scats]

O'Malley: I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing

Scat Cat: Still the cat's the only cat

Who knows how to swing

Russian Cat: Who wants to dig a long-haired gig

And stuff like that

O'Malley and Scat Cat: When everybody wants to be a cat

A square with a horn

Makes you wish you weren't born

Every time he plays

O'Malley: Oh, a-rinky-tinky-dinky

O'Malley and Scat Cat: With a square in the act

You can set music back

To the caveman days

Marie: Oh, a-rinky-dinky-tinky

O'Malley: Yes,

O'Malley and Marie: 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

O'Malley, Marie, Scat Cat: 'Cause everybody digs a swingin' cat

Chinese Cat: Oh boy, fellas! Let's rock the joint!

Russian Cat: Ha-ha! Groove it, cat!

[music and dance]

Chinese Cat: Shanghai, Hong Kong, Egg Foo Young

Fortune cookie always wrong

That's a hot one!

O'Malley: How 'bout you and me, Duchess?

Duchess: Yes. Let's swing it, Thomas.

Toulouse: Groovy, mama, groovy!

Scat Cat (giving trumpet to Berlioz): Blow it, small fry. Blow it.

Chinese Cat: Boy, he blew it

Italian Cat: But he was a-close.

[more music and dance, untill Duchess plays a harp]

Scat Cat: Mmm.

O'Malley: Beautiful

Duchess: If you want to turn me on

Play your horn, don't spare the tone

And blow a little soul into the tune

O'Malley: Let's take to another key

Scat Cat: 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

Beneath the alley's only light

Duchess: Where every note is out of sight

[Scat cat returns to jazz]

All gang: Everybody, everybody,

Everybody wants to be a cat!

Scat Cat: Hallelujah!

All gang: Everybody, Everybody,

Everybody wants to be a cat!

I'm tellin' you!

Everybody, Everybody,

Everybody wants to be a cat!

Yeah!

Everybody, Everybody,

Everybody wants to be a cat!

Mmm!

Everybody, Everybody,

Everybody wants to be a cat!

Hallelujah!

Everybody, Everybody,

Everybody wants to be a cat!
