Lost Boys and John: Following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader

Tee dum, tee dee, the words are easy to say
Just a teedle ee dum a teedle ee do tee day

Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle ee do tee dum
We're one for all, and all of us out for fun
We march in line and follow the other one
With a teedle ee do a teedle ee do tee dum

Following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader
Wherever he may go
We're out to fight the Injuns, the Injuns, the Injuns
We're out to fight the Injuns
Because he told us so

Tee dum, tee dee a teedle ee do tee day
We march along and these are the words we say:
Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle de dum dee-day
Oh, a teedle ee dum a teedle ee do tee day

Oh, a teedle ee dum a teedle ee-do-tee-day

Kids: Tee dum, tee dee a teedle ee doe tee day
Tee dum, tee dee, it's part of the game we play
Tee dum, tee dum, the words are easy to say
Just a teedle ee dum, a teedle ee doe tee day

Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle ee doe tee di
We march along and follow the other guy
Each thing he does the rest of us have to try
With a teedle ee doe a teedle ee doe tee di

We're following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader wherever he may go
We won't be home 'til morning, 'til morning, 'til morning
We won't be home 'til morning because he told us so

Tee dum, tee dee, a teedle ee doe tee day
We're out for fun and this is the game we play
Come on, join in and sing your troubles away
With a teedle ee dum a teedle ee doe tee day

We're off to see the tigers, the tigers, the tigers
We're off to see the tigers and this is what we'll do
We may bring back a million, a trillion, a zillion
We may bring back a million, or maybe one or two

Tee dum, tee dee a teedle ee doe tee day
We march for fun and these are the words we say
Tee dum, tee dee a teedle ee doe tee day
Oh, a teedle ee dum a teedle ee doe tee day

We're following the leader, the leader, the leader
We're following the leader wherever he may go

We won't be home 'til morning, because he told us so

Tee dum, tee dee a teedle ee doe tee dum
We're one for all, and all of us out for fun
We march in line and follow the other one
With a teedle ee do a teedle ee do tee dum
With a teedle ee do a teedle ee do tee dum

Trivia

  • On Disney Sing-Along Songs: Disneyland Fun and Pongo & Perdita, the lyrics contain "We're off to fight the Injuns, the Injuns, the Injuns..." is changed to "We won't be home 'til morning, 'til morning, 'til morning..." due to the former lyrics being politically incorrect by today's standards. The song is also played in a lower key.
  • The rhinoceros, who appears briefly in the song sequence, makes a small cameo appearance with all the other Toons at the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • An instrumental version of the song is briefly heard at the beginning of both Return to Never Land and The Pirate Fairy.
