    Songs About Disneyland

    I've been downloading some songs on iTunes lately, and have come across quite a few that are about Disneyland.

    The one I was just listening to is by the Smugglers (alternative-style) and has me cracking up:

    DEATH AT DISNEYLAND
    Well c'mon now baby along with me
    it's an invitation to a happy dream
    we'll swing from vines like Doctor Jones
    and stumble through a pirate's bones
    But there's a lot of water in this cheery place
    and whirlpools follow in the Columbia's wake
    shots have been fired in the parking lot,
    well it's all just part of Walt's Masonic plot


    Death! Death At Disneyland (chorus)


    The People Mover's crushed the skull of many a guest
    and Space Mountain gives aways free heart attacks
    it's a Tragic Kingdom with Fatal Attractions
    and Disney always dodges any legal action
    But let's face you had a really great day,
    up until the point where you wound up dead
    "let's drop acid on It's A Small World"
    Ok, but don't blame me about your spinal chord
    Go!


    (chorus)


    Well I'm just waiting standing here,
    waiting in line to die
    on the Materhorn and the Rocket Rod
    waiting in line to die, to die.
    Oh well c'mon now baby along with me
    it's an invitation to a happy dream
    we'll slide down a mountain in a hollow log,
    and wind up dead in a murky bog
    But I love this place and all it gives,
    a magical place full of mysteries
    and if you don't want to die meet me at my favourite stop
    that's the Enchanted Tiki Hut


    (chorus)


    Have you heard any other funny and/or deranged songs about Disneyland?

    Rocket Rod, hahah, that song dates itself!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Songs About Disneyland

    This is my favorite DLR related song.

    By DaDa


    Dizz Knee Land


    "I just ran away from home
    Now I'm going to dizz knee land
    I just crashed my car again
    Now I'm going to dizz knee land
    I just robbed a grocery store
    I'm going to dizz knee land
    I just flipped off President George
    I'm going to dizz knee land
    I just tossed a fifth of gin
    Now I'm going to dizz knee land
    I just got cuffed again
    Now I'm going to dizz knee land
    Shot my gun into the night
    I'm going to dizz knee land
    I just saw a good man die
    I'm going to dizz knee land
    Kicked my *** out of school
    Rolled me out into the street
    Hitched a ride on a monkey's back
    Headed west into the black
    I'm going to dizz knee land"

    There was this OC punk band in the early 90's called BHR that covered Dramarama's "Anything, Anything". One of the lyrical changes they made was, "We'll go to Disneyland just to take a piss." I still sing that line anytime I hear the song.

    Re: Songs About Disneyland

    Just heard this on the Mousepod, sung by Ariel herself, Jodi Benson. It's from the musical Smile. The music is awesome; just reading the lyrics doesn't do it justice.

    Disneyland by Hamlisch and Ashman

    Hot Sunday night, I guess the folks were busy fightin’
    Joe’d already left home.
    11 years old on my own feeling nothing but lonely
    There’s nothing to do, nothing out there but the traffic
    down on state 93.
    So I’d sit through the night
    by our old black and white TV.
    And that’s when I saw it.
    That’s when I heard it.
    Calling…calling…me……

    Disneyland ...
    Magic Kingdom, Disneyland.
    Close my eyes real tight,
    wishin' hard I might,
    wishin’ hard I may
    find my way to Disneyland.
    Gotta get to Disneyland.
    On a western breeze,
    magic carpet please,
    please carry me away.

    Oh, I know you’re gonna say
    the trees are paper-mache
    it’s done with mirrors
    no magic there.
    Each little bird’s full of springs
    you press a button it sings
    recorded music in the air.
    They’ve had the mountain refaced
    it’s only plywood and paste
    go on, say it!
    I’ll turn around and tell you
    I don’t care!

    I don’t care.

    I will live in Disneyland.
    Make my home in Disneyland.
    Maybe it’s all fake
    that’s a chance I’ll take
    it’s perfectly ok.
    Some lucky day
    Disneyland
    Take me there to
    Disneyland
    and when I get to Disneyland
    I’ll stay!

    Re: Songs About Disneyland

    Does it count if they're parodies? (i.e., new Disneyland-related lyrics to pre-existing songs)

    I have two songs like that on my website.

    Re: Songs About Disneyland

    Five for Fighting has one of my favorites, though I guess technically it's really not about Disneyland when you think about it...

    Artist: Five For Fighting
    Song: Disneyland

    I Woke up got my lazy *** out of bed
    I Watered all the rocks growing in my head
    I Had a thought...and fell asleep on you...

    There I was somewhere West of Tomorrow Land
    Flying through the stars just like Peter Pan
    I said...Damn this looks too good to be true...

    There she goes... my heart again (would you mind rolling over)
    I can feel it in the air (something's coming down)
    I don't know and I don't care that it's a small world

    It's a nice day if you wake up in Disneyland...
    It's a nice day when you wake up in Disneyland...

    In my dream everybody's got a little house
    A dog, a bank account managed by Mickey Mouse
    And the only thing we fight about is the Lakers...

    In my dream all the pirates down in Neverland
    Never get the Hook... they just get a hand
    While the crocs sing Superman till we just can't take it...

    There she goes... my heart again (do you mind rolling over)
    I can feel it in the air (something's coming down)
    I don't know and I don't care if it's a small world

    It's a nice day when you wake up in Disneyland...
    It's a nice day if you wake up in Disneyland...

    We can fly away...

    I Woke up got my lazy *** out of bed
    I Watered all the rocks growing in my head
    I Had a thought... and I looked up to see

    The sign read the park she's closed today
    E-tickets don't work here no more anyway
    Where every day's a magic day to be free You see...

    It's a nice day when you wake up in Disneyland...
    It's a nice day should you wake up in Disneyland...
    It's your L.U.C.K.Y. day should you wake up in Disneyland...
    It's a nice day should you wake up in Disneyland...

    ------------------- End...

    Ahhh... such a nice song... I'll have to listen to it now...

    Is this the one that sounds like a church hymn?

    A friend put a song on a cd for me recently that
    sounded like a church song and it started off really
    slow and I thought it could be a sort of a slow dance love
    song type... then got to talking about main street...
    I'll have to ask him what the name of it is!

    Re: Songs About Disneyland

    Splendid Isolation
    written by Warren Zevon 1989 Zevon Music BMI

    I want to live alone in the desert
    I want to be like Georgia O'Keefe
    I want to live on the Upper East Side
    And never go down in the street

    Splendid Isolation
    I don't need no one
    Splendid Isolation

    Michael Jackson in Disneyland
    Don't have to share it with nobody else
    Lock the gates, Goofy, take my hand
    And lead me through the World of Self


    Splendid Isolation
    I don't need no one
    Splendid Isolation

    Don't want to wake up with no one beside me
    Don't want to take up with nobody new
    Don't want nobody coming by without calling first
    Don't want nothing to do with you

    I'm putting tinfoil up on the windows
    Lying down in the dark to dream
    I don't want to see their faces
    I don't want to hear them scream

    Splendid Isolation
    I don't need no one
    Splendid Isolation

    Splendid Isolation
    I don't need no one
    Splendid Isolation

    Re: Songs About Disneyland

    Late 70s/Early 80s NYC New Wave-Punk (think Talking Heads) band Come On had a song called Disneyland. Some of the lyrics were:

    I hate Disneyland/Mickey Wouldn't shake my hand.
    Mickey Mouse is a rat/Mickey Mouse is a Rat
    .

    Not the most positive song, but it's kind of catchy...

    Seven hits of L
    and nobody could tell
    So I spent every dime
    just to get to Aniehem

    I was in the Magic Kingdom
    Now I'm in the Carribean
    You get something really wicked
    when you spend an E-ticket

    High adventure on the sea,
    but it's not the life for me
    Now those harry tatooed pirates are all chasing after me
    I was threatened with a knife by a pirate playing fife
    Now I'm sailing for my life thanks to LSD 25

    Where can I hide?
    I don't want to buy a bride
    I'm alone as I float
    Hey, there were others in my boat

    Up ahead, one of the men
    he said he would be my friend
    He'd guide me to the hole
    If I deeded him my soul

    To the hole I didn't make it
    That doesn't mean he didn't take it
    He laughed at my plight
    He said you'll be one of us tonight

    High adventure on the sea,
    but it's not the life for me
    Now those harry tatooed pirates are all chasing after me
    I was threatened with a knife by a pirate playing fife
    Now I'm sailing for my life thanks to LSD 25

    He was right, I'm still here
    as I have been, for over a year
    With my last bit of hope,
    a tin can and rope
    I just want to break free

    But I can't get away
    No I can't get away
    cause that damn dog's got the key
    No one listens as I tell
    of my ordeal in this cell

    They stand right by
    but they don't fell
    Is this for real?
    Is this for real!

    As a memorial to original singer Stevo who just died last weekend.
