"Thomas O'Malley Cat" is a song featured in Disney's The Aristocats. It is sung by Thomas O'Malley (Phil Harris). In the film, Edgar sedates the cats by putting an entire bottle of sleeping pills in their milk and then heads out into the country side to dispose of them. In the morning, Duchess meets Thomas, and we are introduced to him with this song. Afterwards, he offers to guide her and her kittens to Paris.

Lyrics

Thomas O'Malley
I like cheech-a-cheech-chee-roni
Like they make at home
Or a healthy fish with a big backbone

I'm Abraham DeLacey
Giuseppe Casey
Thomas O'Malley
O'Malley, the alley cat!

I've got that wanderlust
Gotta walk the scene
Gotta kick up highway dust
Feel the grass that's green

Gotta strut them city streets
Showin' off my éclat, yeah
Tellin' my friends of the social elite
Or some cute cat I happen to meet

That I'm Abraham DeLacey
Giuseppe Casey
Thomas O'Malley
O'Malley the alley cat!

Duchess: Why, monsieur, your name seems to cover all of Europe!
O'Malley: Well of course. I'm the only cat of my kind.

I'm king of the highway
Prince of the boulevard
Duke of the avant-garde
The world is my backyard

So if you're goin' my way
That's the road you wanna seek
Calcutta to Rome or
Home Sweet Home in Paris...
Magnifique, you all!

Toulouse: Oh, boy! An alley cat!
Marie: Shh! Listen.

O'Malley
I only got myself
And this big old world
But I sip that cup of life
With my fingers curled

I don't worry what road to take
I don't have to think of that
Whatever I take is the road I make
It's the road of life make no mistake, for me

Yeah, Abraham DeLacey
Giuseppe Casey
Thomas O'Malley
O'Malley the alley cat

That's right
And I'm very proud of that
Yeah!
