Be a Stout Fellow was a deleted song from The Wind in the Willows that was written while it was being developed as a full-length feature. It would've been sung by Gertie, the charwoman of the prison that Toad got sent to in an attempt to cheer him up.

Lyrics

Prisoners (in tandem): Gertie, Gertie, funny looking Gertie

Her teeth are false and her legs are bowed

Gertie, Gertie, funny looking Gertie

She's gone soft on a big, fat toad

Toad: Oh, I'm so down-hearted that I wish that I could die

Gertie: You do?

Toad: You can see I've suffered by the sad look in my eye

Gertie: Poor you

Toad: Oh, I'm feeling so unhappy

There's a big lump in my throat

Gertie: Then for you, my dear old chappie

I've the proper antidote

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

I've the proper antidote

Be a stout fellow, a riddle-a tiddle-ti boom

If you want to forget your troubles and be gay

When things go wrong, warble a happy song and say

Fiddle-dee-dee, a riddle-ti tittle-ti tattle-ti

Be a stout fellow, a riddle-a tiddle-ti boom

'Tho you haven't a thing to vocalize about

When things go wrong, warble a happy song and shout right out

Fiddle-dee-dee, fiddle-dee-dee, let go

Fiddle-dee-dee, fiddle-dee-dee, with a loud fortisimo

Fiddle-dee-dee, fiddle-dee-dee and instead of feeling low

Fiddle-dee-dee, you'll be a jolly old, merry old, bally old stout fellow

A riddle-a tiddle-ti boom

If you want to forget your troubles right away when things go wrong

Just warble a happy song and say fiddle-dee-dee, ah hah

Fiddle-dee-dee, ah hah
