    man...ed fuqua (cool guy, like him alot):

    "Jim's credentials and vitae certainly make for more extensive reading than the other cats...."

    man, GODDAMN! That is so cool! Now that I'm playing bass and learning blues/jazz I can start saying "cat" too, right??

    Ive always wanted to say "Man thats one cool cat" but it never seemed to fit with me... now I have an excuse! :cool: Not only do I really LOVE my bass, but playing it is actually making me even cooler (you know, cooler than I already am :D )

    thank you, now back to my solo's...

    Sorry, you are only allowed to use the term "cat" in a non-feline context if you are currently wearing a beret or touring cap, cat.

    Everybody Wants to be A Cat
    From: The Aristocats
    Music: Floyd Huddleston
    Lyrics: Al Rinker
    Performed by: Phil Harris [Thomas O'Malley]

    Ev'rybody wants to be a cat
    Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
    Ev'rybody pickin' up on the feline beat
    'Cause ev'rything else is obsolete

    Beware of a square
    when he offers to share
    his milk to sip
    If it hasn't been tried
    I suggest you provide
    Your own cat nip

    I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing
    But still a cat's the only cat who knows how to swing
    A purr between two furry friends may be old hat
    But ev'rybody wants to be a cat

    Come on, scat cat, turn me on
    I'll take my horn and my beat tone
    Then blow a little soul into the tune
    Let's take it to another key
    Modulate, then wait for me
    I'll take a few ad libs and pretty soon
    The other cats will all commence
    Congregating on the fence
    Beneath the alley's only light
    Where ev'rynight is out of sight

    Ev'rybody wants to be a cat
    Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
    Ev'rybody pickin' up on the feline beat
    'Cause ev'rything else is obsolete

    Beware of a square
    when he offers to share
    his milk to sip
    If it hasn't been tried
    I suggest you provide
    Your own cat nip

    I've heard some corny birds who tried to sing
    But still a cat's the only cat who knows how to swing
    A purr between two furry friends may be old hat
    But ev'rybody wants to be a cat

    Actually I found some different lyrics which I prefer :

    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    'cause everything else is obsolete.

    Now a square with a horn,
    can make you wish you weren't born,
    ever'time he plays;
    and with a square in the act,
    he 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 that horn,
    makes you wish you weren't born,
    ever'time he plays;
    and with a square in the act,
    he's gonna set this music back
    to the Stone Age days.

    Everybody wants to be a cat,
    because a cat's the only cat
    who knows where it's at;
    while playin' jazz you always has a Welcome mat,
    'cause everybody digs a swingin' cat.

    Everybody digs a swingin' cat



    ...and a slightly better version of that picture :

    Where'd you get the first set of lyrics from? The second one is the one that's actually in the movie (Aristocats). Or, at least it's closer to it. The "A square with a horn makes you wish you weren't born..." but is definitely in the version in the movie.
