What's Wrong Wofie, are ya sick
Something in your Throat?
Wait A Minute, are you trying to meow?
Ah Fella
I can see it when you're feeling low
You can't hide that from me
You're no status quo calico
So why keep trying to be?
'Cause you're more than that
You're a doggish cat
I wish you could see the you I see
I say
If you bark
Celebrate it
Make your mark
Serenade it
Noah's ark
Shoulda had a cat like you
And if
What you are
Is a strange you
Doesn't mean
You should change you
Only means
You should change your point of view

Hey, feline
You fetch just fine
To thine ownself be true
Your bark wows
The cat's meow
It's how I know you're you

You don't need the bows
Or tiara
Bid your woes
Sayonara
Trust your nose
'Cause it knows the way to go
When you
Chase your tail
You're enchanting
Spirits sail
When you're panting
When you wail
You're a rover, Romeo

There is not
One hair of you
That I would rearrange
I love you
The way you are
And that will never change
That will never change

    I think the song is about being yourself and learning to accept your unique qualities and just loving yourself. Erika tells her cat that he shouldn't try to be who he isn't and although he is a cat (which cats usually meow) but he is different (ala he woofs instead of meows) and that he should accept his um. Unique differences and take it in pride. This catchy Barbie classic has a very positive message of just learning to love and accept your differences because everyone has their own differences and quirks and That is what makes every one of us special in this world. It's what makes our world so diverse and unique. In the last verse, Erika states " there is not a hair of you that I would rearrange" meaning she doesn't ever want Wolfie to change then she says "I love you the way you are and that will never change." That means she loves Wolfie for who he is and she wouldn't want him another way. The last few lines indicate we should love our fellow neighbors no matter how quirky, strange, weird or just different they are. So what the song is trying to convey is we should not just have respect for other people's differences but for our differences too and learn to appreciate them because everyone of us is special in our own way and that is what makes our works so diverse and interesting, and surprisingly, it (sort of) shoves the moral down our throats but it puts it in such a captivating and bubbly way that we don't even notice. This is a classic song with a classic message.

    It is about a cat that barks and is insecure about that fact and wants to change himself so his owner say that he is perfect.

    I think erika is trying to tell her cat, wolfie that she loves him just the way he is. I wonder why he barks instead meows?

    You don't need to try to be something you're not; because no matter what everyone's thinking, it's your loved ones' opinion that counts. And they'll love you no matter what.
