Here's Christopher Walken, a cat named "Puss," dancing and singing to the song "A Happy Cat" along side Jason Connery, Sean Connery's son, in the 1988, direct-to-video children's film, Puss In Boots.
Go ahead, sing along:
"No more cryin' for a crust of bread
No more beggin' for a bowl of milk
It's trout for breakfast in a feather bed
On sheets of silk
Now, I'm walkin' like I'm 10 feet tall
Just reach out a paw and catch some birds
And I'll never have to creep or crawl,
Be kicked or stepped on just because I'm small
I've got my boots and I've got it all
In other words...
You're lookin' at a happy cat,
A watch-me-dance, toe-tappy cat,
A cat who had a dream that just came true
I got myself a snappy pair of boots
I also got a name that suits me
A pair of boots can change a cat
From bum into aristocrat
No house in town that I can't waltz into
I might drop by the palace for a chat
To show the king where class is at
When I sashay into some smart cafe,
Each pretty feline will make a b-line
For the cat they all adore
Always putting on the dog
And livin' high upon the hog
Say, who is that with feathered hat?
A velvet coat and lace cravat?
Soft-shoeing up and down the avenue?
Must be some fancy foreign diplomat
Ah no, it's just a happy cat
I've got a hunch it's no more mice for lunch
From mouse to pheasant -
Won't that be pleasant?
Goose topped off by chocolate mousse
I might explode but what the ho -
I've still got eight more lives to go
Oh, who'd believe this happy cat
Was once a lazy, nappy cat?
With catnaps and with catnip, I am through
Can't lie around the fire growing fat
There's lots of feats these feet must do
But, just for now, I'll fluff my fur
And purr a soft, contented purr
Yes, sir, you're lookin' at -
A happy cat!"
