"Clink, clink, clank, clank" is a song featured in Disney's 1978 short animated feature, The Small One. The song is performed by The Three Merchants, partially the Boy, an overweight potter, and a short baker. This song is based on the Boy trying to sell his donkey, Small One, to some people (a potter and a baker mostly), who deny buying him, around the marketplace.

Lyrics

The Three Merchants:

Clink, clink, clank, clank.

Get the money to the bank.

Telling little stories you can trust.

We never ever fail

When we got to make a sale.

We work a little harder if we must.

The Boy:

Small One, Small One, Small One for sale.

One piece of silver, Small One for sale.

Please, sir. Would you like to buy my donkey?

A Potter:

No, no, little boy, I will not buy.

That's a sorry bag of bones, I fear.

I have buyers by the dozens

And their mothers and their cousins.

Now, take the beast and go away from here!

The Three Merchants:

Oh, clink, clink, clank, clank.

Get the money to the bank.

Telling little stories you can trust.

We never ever fail

When we got to make a sale.

We work a little harder if we must.

The Boy:

Small One, Small One, Small One for sale.

One piece of silver, Small One for sale.

Excuse me. Would you like to buy my donkey?

A Baker:

No, no, little boy, I will not buy.

What a scrawny,

Undernourished little beast.

You will surely realize

Since my wife's a healthy size

I think I better buy a horse, at least.

The Three Merchants:

A horse?

Oh, clink, clink, clank, clank.

Get the money to the bank.

Telling little stories you can trust.

We never ever fail

When we got to make a sale.

We work a little harder if we must.

The Boy:

Doesn't anybody need a donkey?

The Three Merchants:

Come, come, little boy

Take our advice.

You will never ever find a buyer here.

Three blocks straight ahead

"Three blocks," he said

You will find a jolly auctioneer.

You will find a jolly auctioneer.

The Boy:

An auctioneer?

The Three Merchants:

Yes. Now, go away.

4x((1xOh), clink, clink, clank, clank.

Get the money to the bank.)

Clink, clink, clank, clank.

Trivia

  • An alternate version of this song is heard in certain versions of The Small One, with "work a little harder if we must" changed to "simply cheat a little if we must".
