Cattanooga Cats features a song sequence in every episode. Below are the lyrics to some of those songs.

How Did I Ever Get So Lucky

How did I ever get so lucky
To find a boy as sweet as you
My lucky star must have been shining
And it led me straight to you
Oh oh oh
How did I ever get so lucky?
How did I ever get so lucky?
I have known a lot of others
And they would always treat me bad
But with you, it's so different
'Cause you never make me sad
Oh oh oh
How did I ever get so lucky?
How did I ever get so lucky?
You don't play games
Like all the other boys
To keep me guessing is not your thing
I'm not a puppet on a string
How did I ever get so lucky
To find a boy as sweet as you?
My lucky star must have been shining
And it led me straight to you
Oh oh oh
How did I ever get so lucky?
How did I ever get so lucky?

My Group Has Too Many Cavities

Do doo doo, do doo doo doo do
Do doo doo, do doo doo doo do
Baby, I'm really feeling down in the dumps
Do doo doo, do doo doo doo do
My jaws are swollen and you'd think I got the mumps
Do doo doo, do doo doo doo do
My dentist looked at me and said "You're in the wrong group"
Ahh ahh
And now that he's through with me, we're living on soup
Ahh
My group has too many cavities, too many cavities
My group
My group has too many cavities, too many cavities
Where did we go wrong?
Too many cavities, too many cavities
I brushed with the fluoridized brand of the leading paste
Do doo doo, do doo doo doo do
And when I couldn't brush, I chewed the gum with the flavorful taste
Do doo doo, do doo doo doo do
Test after test is made, I failed every one
Ahh ahh
I brushed, and brushed, but somehow I never won
Ahh
My group has too many cavities, too many cavities
My group
My group has too many cavities, too many cavities
Where did we go wrong?
Too many cavities, too many cavities
Oh oh oh
Too many cavities, too many cavities
My group

My Girlfriend Is A Witch

Riding high
Leaving trails of smoke across the sky
On a broom
Glad that I am safe within my room
I know my girlfriend is a witch
Smoke fills the air
I think I hear foosteps on my stair
Coming near
Her thoughts are telling me that she's here'
I know my girlfriend is a witch
(Instrumental)
I know my girlfriend is a witch
What a fate
A worshipper of magic for a date
But tonight
I become a warlock just for spite
I know my girlfriend is a witch

Alle Alle Oxen Free

Wait A Minute for Country

Wait a minute for Country
Before you go away
Wait a minute for Country
Hear what he has to say
Maybe he didn't mean what he did
Maybe the reasons are better hid
Oh, wait a minute for Country
Let him have his day
A second chance for Country
Would only be fair
A second chance for Country
Would let him know you care
Well, don't believe all that you always hear
Only after you see he may be sincere
Oh, a second chance for Country
Let him have his day
There he comes, walking down the street
Go halfway and when you meet
Shake his hand and understand
He's a good guy, too, just like you
Wait a minute for Country
Before you go away
Wait a minute for Country
Hear what he has to say
Maybe he didn't mean what he did
Maybe the reasons are better hid
Oh, wait a minute for Country
Let him have his day
Wait a minute for Country

Country Carnival

Country carnival, and you and me
Down towards Nashville, Tennessee
Cotton candy and a ferris wheel

Kewpie dolls and sugarheads (sugarheads)
All the glitter, all the fun
All the smiles on everyone
Country carnival, and you and me'
Down towards Nashville, Tennessee
Cotton candy and a ferris wheel
A country carnival is how I feel

Super Love

There's something that I got plenty of
Got more than my share of super love
If it's the last thing that I do
I'm going to give super love to you
Super love to you
Super love to you
Like a speeding bullet, I'm at your side
My X-ray eyes are filled with pride
I can see what I gotta do
I've gotta give super love to you
Super love to you
Super love to you
Super, super, super, super, super love
Then we can fly way up high in the sky
Super, super, super, super, super love
When you're in trouble, I'll come on the double
Whenever I see you comin' round
I can leap tall buildings in a single bound
But I just can't get over you
Baby, let me give super love to you
Super love to you
Super love to you
Super, super, super, super, super love
You make me fly way up high in the sky
Super, super, super, super, super love
When you're in trouble, I'll come on the double
Whenever I see you comin' round
I can leap tall buildings in a single bound
But I just can't get over you
And, baby, let me give super love to you
Super love to you
Super love to you

Sittin' By The Fireside (Cold Wisconsin Night)

Sitting by the fireside
Warming up and drying our clothes
Pa, pa, pa, doo, ah, pa, pa, pa, doo, ah
Sitting by the fireside
No hurry 'cause there's nowhere to go
Pa, pa, pa, doo, ah, pa, pa, pa, doo, ah

And I can tell you want to hold me tight
Sitting by the fireside, feeling warm inside, yeah
Sitting by the fireside
We can go where nobody goes

We know things nobody can know
By the fireside, ah-ah
It's a cold Wisconsin night
And I can tell you want to hold me tight
Sitting by the fireside
Feeling warm inside, yeah
If we go down to the lake
Don't you worry, we won't stay late
I know you can hardly wait to be
Sitting by the fireside
As the sparks go burn way down low

Wishing by the fireside
No hurry 'cause there,s nowhere to go

Sitting by the fireside
Feeling warm inside, yeah

Mother May I

Mother, may I? Tell me what to do
Tell me where to go and who to sock it to
Mother, may I open up the door
To the heart of the one I love?
If you may take another big step
Closer to the one you love
Yes, you may take a giant step
And sing for joy and shout for love
May I hug her, and may I kiss her
And miss her till she comes again?
She's something more than just a friend
I'll love her till the very end
Mother, may I? Tell me what to do
And tell me where to go and who to sock it to
Mother, may I open up the door
To the heart of the one I love?
If you may take another big step
Get closer to the one you love
Yes, you may take a giant step
And sing it to the stars above
May I hug her, and may I squeeze her
And please her till she comes again?
She's something more than just a friend
Oh, I'll love her till the very end
Mother, may I? Tell me what to do
Tell me where to go...

Love Won't Stay Away

Sitting by the window in the quiet of the dell
Or laying in the meadow by the stream that feeds the well
Or rolling down the hills along the banks that turn to shore
On a day when love won't stay away
The green of the leaves against the blueness of the sky
Grasp the moment fast, or it may leave and pass you by
I'm leaving now, but there is no reason why
You don't come play with me, don't have to stay and cry
'Cause I lived through the time when daylight seemed like night
And no matter what I did it seemed to never come out right
I'm leaving now, but there's no reason why
You don't come play with me, don't have to stay and cry
Sitting by the window in the quiet of the dell
Or laying in the meadow by the spring that feeds the well
Or rolling down the hills along the banks that turn to shore
On a day when love won't stay away
The green of the leaves against the blueness of the sky
Grasp the moment fast, or it may leave and pass you by
I'm leaving now, but there is no reason why
You don't come play with me, don't have to stay and cry
'Cause I lived through the time when daylight seemed like night
And no matter what I did, it never seemed to come out right
I'm leaving now, but there's no reason why
You don't come play with me, don't have to stay and cry

Hoot Hoot Owl

I come out at night
And my eyes get big
Every time I see
Pretty girls I dig
Then I go out on a limb
I try to make love with them
I'm on a limb
Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot!
I'm like a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot owl
I'm like a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot owl
Pretty girls make me flap my wings
And go hoot, hoot owl
Like a hoot, hoot owl
Hoot, hoot owl
Hoot, hoot owl
When the sun goes down
And the moon comes up
Then I go downtown
And I try my luck
All the pretty girls passing by
I hoot, hoot, hoot
And I hear them sigh
It makes me want to fly
Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot!
I'm like a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot owl
I'm like a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot owl
Pretty girls make me flap my wings
And go hoot, hoot owl
Like a hoot, hoot owl
Hoot, hoot owl
Hoot, hoot owl
Like a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot owl
I'm like a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot owl
Pretty girls make me flap my wings
And go hoot, hoot owl
Like a hoot, hoot owl

I Wish I Was A Fire

I wish that I was a fire
I wish that I was a fire
Burning so bright
And giving off light
I wish that I was a fire
I wish that I was a fire
That never dies
That never cries
Baby, if I close my eyes
I can try and visualize
Just what it could be like to burn away
Every day
And I would be all by myself
I don't need nobody else
Long as I've got plenty of wood to grow on
I wish that I was a fire
I wish that I was a fire
Burning so bright
And giving off light
Burning so bright
And giving off light
I will never die
I will never cry

Do You Dig the Music?

Do you see the singer singing?
Can you feel the guitars ringing
In your ear?
Tell me, do you dig the music that you hear?
Does it make you want to snap your fingers?
Did you notice if the song still lingers?
Is it clear?
Tell me, do you dig the music that you hear?
Do you dig the music?
Does it really groove you?
Do you dig the music?
Does it really move you?
Do you dig the music?
The Cattanooga Cats really make you want to dance
Does it make you want to wear a smile now?
Do you think that it's all worthwhile now?
Be sincere
Tell me, do you dig the music that you hear?
Listen to the cats play
All right
Ah, bring a little bass in
A little funky guitar
Hey, Cattanooga
How about piano
Say you dig the cats now, tell me you dig them
Do you really dig them?
(Instrumental)
Do you dig the music?
Does it really groove you?
Do you dig the music?
Does it really move you?
Do you dig the music?
The Cattanooga Cats really make you want to dance
Does it make you want to wear a smile now?
Do you think that it's all worthwhile now?
Be sincere
Tell me, do you dig the music that you hear?
Tell me, do you dig the music that you hear?

Incompatible

I had a girl, and she was fine
And all the love she had was mine
And then one day, she said to me
She'd been reading 'bout astrology
And we're incompatible
We're incompatible
She read the book, and it was clear
The end of our romance was near
And it will happen very soon
When Saturn squares her natal moon
Yes, we're incompatible
We're incompatible
I always thought that I had it made
Until my Mars went retrograde
So now I sit around and mope
While she reads the daily horoscope
(Instrumental)
Rain and smog and Pluto, too
Have done me wrong, what can I do?
My eyes are sad, my heart won't sing
Because the stars have done their thing
And we're incompatible
We're incompatible

Give Your Love to Me

Baby, when I look at you
I can feel my heart beating
Faster and faster
How good it could be if you would give your love to me
Affection is one thing
Babe, you know that I'm always after
Can't you see that I love you?
How good it could be if you would give your love to me
But when you see me around
You know what's on my mind
How can I make you mine, all mine
When you don't know how to make time?
Love could be such a sweet thing
I wouldn't stop you from doin' your thing
Can't you see that I love you
How good it could be if you would give your love to me
Give your love to me
Oh, love could be such a sweet thing (So give your love to me)
I wouldn't stop you from doin' your thing (So give your love to me)
Can't you see that I love you? (So give your love to me)
Oh, love could be such a sweet thing (So give your love to me)

Pretty As A Picture

She's as pretty as a picture
Oh, how I miss her
Can't wait to see her again
Ba-da-da-da
Ba-da-da-da
Your hair is so dark and your eyes are so blue
Don't you know that I love you?
You're not too tall and you're not too small
And you know that I love you
Ain't gonna leave ya
Ain't gonna leave ya
I'll stay until you tell me to go
She's as pretty as a picture
Oh, how I miss her
Can't wait to see her again
Ba-da-da-da
Ba-da-da-da
Nothing more right than to hold you tight
Oh, it's hard for me when we're apart
Nothing I miss more than your sweet kiss
Any time that we are apart
Ain't gonna leave ya
Ain't gonna leave ya
I'll stay until you tell me to go
She's as pretty as a picture
Oh, how I miss her
Can't wait to see her again

Oh, how I miss her

Go

Stop right there
Don't move
I've never met another girl
So much in the groove
And could you stop right there
A few minutes more
There's something that I gotta say
Don't walk out the door
Because I'm lookin' for somebody
Oh, yeah
I'm needin' for somebody
Oh, yeah
Now, could you be the one
That's gonna show me some fun?
If not, well, then you might as well go
Lookin' for someone to follow me home
To share all of my dreams
Lookin' for someone to follow me home tonight
Lookin' for someone to follow me home
To share all of my dreams with
I don't know, but you could be so right
Stop right there
Don't move
I've never met another girl
So much in the groove
And could you stop right there
A few minutes more
There's something that I gotta say
Don't walk out the door
Because I'm lookin' for somebody
Oh, yeah
I'm needin' for somebody
Oh, yeah
Now, could you be the one
That's gonna show me some fun?
If not, well, then you might as well go
If not, well, then you might as well go
If not, well, then you might as well go

She Sure Got Soul

When she sings, she's sure got soul
She's sure got soul
She's sure got soul
Well, don't you know I love her so
'Cause when she sings, she's sure got soul
She's kind of strange, but that's okay
Her looks have got a lot to say
Hand in hand, you'll find us walking
She keeps singing, while I am talking
But when she sings, she's sure got soul
She's sure got soul
She's sure got soul
Well, don't you know I love her so
'Cause when she sings, she's sure got soul
She sings all the songs like Dylan does
'Bout where it's at, and where it was
She learned them on her radio
She sings off-key, but you don't know
'Cause when she sings, she's sure got soul
She's sure got soul
Yeah, she's sure got soul
Well, don't you know I love her so
'Cause when she sings, she's sure got soul
She's bubbling under my personal chart
There's musical magic in my art
She's the classical cat of rock and roll
'Cause when she sings, she's sure got soul
Yeah, and when she sings
Yeah, she's got soul
She sure got soul
Yeah, she sure got soul
Well, don't you know...

Guess What I Have Done

She's the clerk at the store
And the girl that I adore
I wish I were able to take her away
Oh, how my heart sings
As she totals up my things
I'm the very best customer that she has
How I wish I could take that miss
And change it into Mrs.
Then the only thing she'd do
Is total up my kisses
Oh, guess what I have done
It's a box boy I've become
Now we are together
Just me and my girl
Da-da-da
Da-daa-da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-daa-da
Da-da, de-da-da, de-daa-da-da
Da-da, da-da-da, daaa, daaa
Oh, guess what I have done
It's a box boy I've become
Now we are together
Just me and my girl
Yeah, just me and my girl
Oh, yeah
Yeah, just me and my girl
I'm telling you now
Just me and my girl

I Wanna Sleep Tonight

Whoo-hoo-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
It's gonna be very hard to do
When I look into his eyes of blue
And tell him that I've been untrue
But I want to sleep tonight
I want to sleep tonight
Whoo-hoo-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
I don't know what I'm gonna say
I gotta say it in a certain way
He must know that I went astray
So I can sleep tonight
I want to sleep tonight
Whoo-hoo-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Temptation took me by surprise
It wasn't right, and now I realize
I'll run to him and apologize
So I can sleep tonight
I want to sleep tonight, ooh
I want to sleep tonight, ooh

Sing a Song of Sixpence

Sing a song of sixpence, huckleberry pie
If it were to make sense, birds couldn't fly
Take a little nap now, wake a mother hen
Wear a feathered cap now, think what might have been
Took a little walk down primrose lane
Found a little garden there in the rain
When I hadn't been there very long
I met a little girl who sang this song
Sing a song of sixpence, huckleberry pie
If it were to make sense, birds couldn't fly
Take a little nap now, wake a mother hen
Wear a feathered cap now, think what might have been
(Instrumental)
She was very sad, and she said to me
Life is never what it seems to be
But every time that things start to go wrong
I take another look, and I sing this song
Sing a song of sixpence, huckleberry pie
If it were to make sense, birds couldn't fly
Take a little nap now, wake a mother hen
Wear a feathered cap now, think what might have been
Sing a song of sixpence, huckleberry pie
If it were to make sense, birds couldn't fly
Take a little nap now...

I Don't Belong to Anybody Else But You

I don't belong to anybody else but you
I don't belong to anybody else -- I'm true
And I'm so happy 'cause you feel the same way, too
I'm happy that a daydream has come true
I've got a boat big enough for two
Oh, yeah, what are we gonna do?
Sail off to an island big enough for two
Oh, yeah, that's what we're gonna do
I don't belong to anybody else but you
I don't belong to anybody else -- I'm true
And I'm so happy 'cause you feel the same way, too
I'm happy that a daydream has come true
I don't belong to anybody else but you
I don't belong to anybody else -- I'm true
And I'm so happy 'cause you feel the same way, too
I'm happy that a daydream has come true
I've got a car big enough for two
Oh, yeah, what are we gonna do?
Drive around the world -- just be me and you
Oh, yeah, that's what we're gonna do
I don't belong to anybody else but you'
I don't belong to anybody else -- I'm true
And I'm so happy 'cause you feel the same way, too
I'm happy that a daydream...

My Honey

Oh, everybody's talkin' 'bout my honey
But honey is sweet, so sweet on me
Ever since I met my honey
I'm as dizzy as I can be
Everybody's looking for my honey
But only one place that they will see
My ever-lovin' sweet honey
Honey's gonna always be with me
Everybody's talkin' 'bout my honey
My honey is sweet, so sweet on me
Ever since I met my honey
I'm as dizzy as I can be
She's the kind that I had to find
She'll be the only one for me
Since we met, now you can bet
I'm never gonna ever let honey leave
Oh, everybody's looking for my honey
But only one place that they will see
My ever-lovin' sweet honey
Honey's gonna always be...
