“Thomas O’Malley” is a song from Disney’s 1970 animated film, The Aristocats. The song is composed by Richard and Robert Sherman and is performed by Phil Harris, who also provides the voice for the character of Thomas O’Malley, a streetwise alley cat who befriends the film’s main characters, Duchess and her three kittens. The song features a catchy and upbeat jazz-inspired melody, with a prominent piano and horn section. The lyrics of the song describe Thomas O’Malley’s carefree and adventurous lifestyle, and his willingness to help others, even those who are not of his own kind. The song also includes several humorous moments, such as when O’Malley comments on the fancy way that Duchess speaks, and when he suggests that the kittens need to learn how to “swim and fish and catch a mouse.” “Thomas O’Malley” is a memorable and entertaining part of The Aristocats soundtrack and is a beloved classic Disney song.
