I'm Gonna Be a Wheel Someday
Fats Domino Lyrics


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

Everything'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, cry, cry
You will si-i-i-igh
You will wonder why I don't look at you
When I go rolling by

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

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

Everything'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, cry, cry
You will si-i-i-gh
You be wondrin' why I don't look at you
When I go rolling by

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

Fats had so many hits, but this one might be my favorite.

It's mine!

for me also, I loved the 50's era which most agree ended in 1962 . it was an incredible time in American history. THE MUSIC, the CARS. WOW. This song fits right in with that era

Joel Bush

Rip Fats. My absolute favorite song of his. He was always smiling when played piano and sung his songs. It always made me smile. What a great showman and influence to many. May the good lord welcome you and give comfort to your family and fans all over the world.

RIP, Fats. You are a true legend.

Dave Bartholomew*, one of the architects of rock and roll, passed away at the age of 100 on June 23rd, 2019...
He partnered with Fats Domino on early rock classics including co-writing “Ain’t That a Shame.” The New Orleans trumpeter, band leader, producer, songwriter, and arranger was involved in many iconic songs including “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” “Blueberry Hill,” “I’m Walking,” and “I Hear You Knocking”...
Bartholomew was band leader for one of New Orleans premier R&B bands when he became an A&R man for Imperial Records. At Imperial, he brought in Fats Domino, working with him on combining R&B with big band, jazz, and country to create early rock and roll. Bartholomew was elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991...
May he R.I.P.
* Mr. Bartholomew was a co-composer of "I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday"...

All I think about when I hear this song is the movie “Return To Macon County” I have it on Blu-ray and it plays at the title screen and the beginning of the movie. One of my favorite films!

This is an awesome song!  The man could Rock n' Roll.  The first time I ever heard this song was when I saw the movie, "Return to Macon County", back in the mid-seventies. At the time I had no idea that Fats originally sang it,  but it just makes sense...he was brilliant.  Way ahead of his time.

If you love this song, Christopher Duganberry, then you will love the online radio station called American '50s Radio.

You're welcome!  He's an American Icon.
