    Psst... Froggy. I'm pretty sure the lyrics are:

    "If we weren't in the show starting right away, we'd be in the audience too."

    Not on the CD I have - it's definitely not audience, or at least it wasn't when the attraction opened.

    Pinocchio's Journey's "An Actor's Life for Me"
    Would have to get my vote. Then again I am never on that ride enough to really listen to the song. The grandkids love it though.

    Interesting! So they changed more than the Offenbach piece! Rat bastards.

    Everything mentioned is cheery but the Haunted Mansion - so I choose that. And really, I actually like "It's a Small World" music. Everyone says 'the song stays in my head forever' - but I think that was the whole idea....you know? It serves as a reminder....

    Well, it's a small world is pretty insidious.

    I really dig 'Tiki Room' and the other songs too, but there is something cloying about it's a small world that makes me want to do bad things to a puppy.

    Actually, that's not fair. The puppy has done nothing wrong. Perhaps just take the Sherman brothers into a room and play my own tune. 'Stuck in the Middle with You' perhaps.

    I've gone wrong.

    Oh, my! This was way harder than I thought it would be! But I finally voted on Splash...the lyrics in that song are the most questionable. At least in the others, you can really sense that someone tried...

    My vote would have to go to IASW. Don't misunderstand..I have HUGE amount of respect for the Sherman brothers. It just seems on this song they just got lazy. The lyrics have no imagination. The lyrics are basically repeating the same words over and over and over..etc.

    Zip A Dee Doo Dah isn't the only song in Splash Mountain, though.

    Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room

    All the birds sing words
    And the flowers croon
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room

    Welcome to our tropical hideaway
    You lucky people, you
    If we weren't in the show starting right away
    We'd be in the audience too

    (chorus)
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
    All the birds sing words
    And the flowers croon
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room (repeat)

    The bird Paradise is an elegant bird
    He loves to be seen and it loves to be heard
    Most little birdies will fly away
    But the tiki room birds are here everyday

    (chorus)
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
    All the birds sing words
    And the flowers croon
    At the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room (repeat)

    Da da da da da da da
    We're singing in the tiki room
    Da da da da da da da
    Crooning in the tiki room (repeat)

    The show is delightful
    We hope you'll agree
    We hope that it fills you with pleasure and glee
    Because if we don't make you feel like that
    We gonna wind up on a lady's hat

    (chorus)
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
    All the birds sing words
    And the flowers croon
    In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room (repeat)

    Da da da da da da da
    We're singing in the tiki room
    Da da da da da da da
    Crooning in the tiki room (repeat)


    Froggy, man, you got the Tiki room lyrics wrong,
    it is "in the audience too"

    If someone doesn't like 'em, THEN they end up
    on a Lady's hat, Not in the stew.


    Oh, I voted based on the most annoying lyrics,
    and hands down, it's gotta be Small World, even
    Scar agrees, ANYTHING but THAT!
