I

I'm A Rock-a-billy Boogie / Rock 'n Rollin' Boppin' Cat

Billy Wiggle & The Wigglers

(Thomas Livius, MAC 114, 1981)

I remember the words my daddy told
When I was a boy, just ten years old
He said, soon you'll be a man
And you must prove to live in nature's plan
Maybe you wanna be a plumber like you own sweet dad
A cop or a butcher or a something like that
I said, no sweet daddy, I wanna be a rockabilly cat

Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
I wanna be the biggest boppin' cat that the world has ever had

Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
I wanna be the biggest boppin' cat that the world has ever had

Well, my daddy looked at me and said nothing for a while
Then he shaked his head and he started to smile
He layed his hand on my shoulder, come on little star
Today I'll buy you a rockabilly guitar
You don't have to be a plumber like your old sweet dad
A cop or a butcher or a something like that
If that's what you like, be a rockabilly cat

Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
I wanna be the biggest boppin' cat that the world has ever had

Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
I wanna be the biggest boppin' cat that the world has ever had

Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
Well, I'm a rock-a-billy boogie rock 'n rollin' boppin' cat
I wanna be the biggest boppin' cat that the world has ever had
