Everybody Wants to Be a Cat is song featured in Disney’s The Aristocats (1970). This song is sung by Scatman Crothers as Scat Cat, Phil Harris as Thomas O’ Malley, Thurl Ravenscroft as Billy Boss the Russian Cat, Robie Lester as Duchess, and Liz English as Marie. It was also released as a now rare 45 rpm single, in a version sung only by Phil Harris, which lacks the cartoon voices of the common release. The soundtrack CD released in 1996 contains an edited version of the song. The lines sung by Shun Gon the Chinese cat, voiced by Paul Winchell, now seen as politically incorrect, are removed.

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
