"Disney Mambo No. 5" is a mambo and jive dance song originally recorded and composed by Cuban Pérez Prado in 1949.

History

The song's popularity was renewed by Lou Bega's sampling of the original, released under the same name on Bega's 1999 debut album A Little Bit of Mambo. The music video, which shows Bega performing in front of clips from Mickey Mouse Works, was attached to theatrical showings of The Tigger Movie on February 11, 2000.[1] It can also be seen on the VHSs and DVDs of Fun and Fancy Free and A Goofy Movie.

Radio Disney

A version of "Mambo No. 5" was aired on Radio Disney, in which the ladies' names were replaced with legendary Disney characters' names such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, Pluto, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Goofy. Additionally, references to a "liquor store" were replaced with a "candy store" instead, "ice cream" was used rather than "gin and juice," "flirting" was replaced by "dancing," and the "beer bust" referred to was changed to a dance party.

The song was later released on the album Radio Disney Jams, Vol. 2.

Lyrics

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Mambo No. 5


One, two, three, four, five
Everybody in the car so come on let's ride
To the candy-store around the corner
The boys say they want some ice-cream
But I really don't wanna
Let's dance till we all fall down
We'll really party hearty to the mambo sound
I like Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and Daisy
And as I continue, the gang is goin' crazy
So what can I do, I really beg you my lord
To me dancing is just like a sport
Anything fly it's all good let me dump it
Please send in the trumpet

A little bit of Minnie in my life
A little bit of Mickey by her side
A little bit of Donald's all I need
A little bit of Daisy's what I see
A little bit of Pluto in the sun
Huey, Dewey, Louie can't go wrong
A little bit of Goofy everyone!
A little bit of him makes life so fun

Mambo No. 5

Jump up and down and move it all around
Shake your head to the sound
Put your hands on the ground
Take one step left and one step right
One to the front and one to the side
Clap your hands once and clap your hands twice
And if it looks like this then you doin' it right

A little bit of Minnie in my life
A little bit of Mickey by her side
A little bit of Donald's all I need
A little bit of Daisy's what I see
A little bit of Pluto in the sun
Huey, Dewey, Louie can't go wrong
A little bit of Goofy everyone!
A little bit of him makes life so fun

Trumpet, the trumpet

Mambo No. 5

A little bit of Minnie in my life
A little bit of Mickey by her side
A little bit of Donald's all I need
A little bit of Daisy's what I see
A little bit of Pluto in the sun
Huey, Dewey, Louie can't go wrong
A little bit of Goofy everyone!
A little bit of him makes life so fun

I do all to fall in love with a girl like you
Coz you can't run, you can't hide, you and me gonna touch the sky

Mambo No. 5
