Dumbo 340
"Hit the Big Boss (For a Raise)" is a minor song featured in Dumbo. The song was sung by the Ringmaster's Clowns as they attempt to make more money by making Dumbo jump from a thousand foot building. The song is most likely a reference to the Disney animators' strike that was occurring at the time of Dumbo's release.


Oh, we're gonna hit the Big Boss for a raise!
Yes, we're gonna hit the Big Boss for a raise!
Oh, we're gonna get more money, 'cause we know that we're funny
Oh, we're gonna hit the Big Boss for a raise!
