Opening theme song lyrics

Ja-ba-da, ja-ba-da, say ja-ba-da
Ja-ba-da, ja-ba-da, say ja-ba-da
Cattanooga Cats don't ever purr
They know how, but not what fer
Cattanooga Cats don't go meow
Wouldn't try, but they know how
They're doing their thing, ja-ba-da, ja-ba-da
They're doing their thing, ja-ba-da, ja-ba-da
The doing their thing, ja-ba-da, ja-ba-da
The Cattanooga Cats are doing their thing!
