(intro instrumental & background vocals)

(Hey!)
(Hey!)

I'm gonna be a wheel some day
I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

Ev'rything's gonna go my way
And I won't need nobody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

You can cry-i-i-i-i
You gon' cry-ha-ha-hard
You be wonderin' why
I don't look at you
When I go strollin' by

I'm gonna be a wheel some day
I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

(instrumental & sax)

(Hey!)
(Hey!)

I'm gonna be a wheel one day
I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

Ev'rything's gonna go my way
And I won't need nobody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

You will cry-i-i-i, alright
You gon', cry-ha-ha-hard
You be wonderin' why
I don't look at you
When I go strollin' by

I'm gonna be a wheel one day
I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then l won't want you.

(instrumental & sax to end)
