"The Aristocats" is a song sung in the opening credits of the 1970 Disney animated feature film of the same name.

It was performed by Maurice Chevalier, in what would be one of his final performances of his career.


Which pet's address
Is the finest in Paris?
Which pets possess
The longest pedigree?
Which pets get
To sleep on velvet mats?
Naturellement! The aristocats!

Which pets are blessed
With the fairest forms and faces?
Which pets know best
All the gentle social graces?
Which pets live
On cream and loving fats?
Naturellement! The aristocats!

They show aristocratic bearing
When they're seen
Upon an airing
And aristocratic flair
In what they do
And what they say!
Aristocats are never found
In alleyways or hanging around
The garbage cans where
Common kitties play, oh no!
Which pets are known
To never show their claws?
Which pets are prone
To hardly any flaws?
To which pets
Do the others tip their hats?
Naturellement! The aristocats!

(Instrumental Bridge)

Aristocats, ils sont toujours
Même quand ils font un petit tour
Toujours précieux
Là où ils vont
Ils sont fièrs de leur éducation
Dédaignant les ruelles
Ils préfèrent les bars aux poubelles
Dont se contentent, trop vulgaires
Les chats de gouttière, oh pouah!
Quels miaous réprouvent les gros mots?
Quels chats chouchous s'estiment sans défauts?
Et devant qui, les autres chats tirent leurs chapeaux?
Mais naturellement!
Mais naturellement, voyons!
Oh, mais naturellement!
Les aristocats!
