Mickey Mouse Club "Alma Mater"

"The Mickey Mouse Club March" is the theme song for The Mickey Mouse Club, a children's television series that originally ran from 1955 to 1959 on ABC. It has since become the official theme song of Mickey Mouse and can be heard in many Disney productions. Also on the videos Disney Sing Along Songs: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Magic Years. The song was reprised with the slower "it's time to say goodbye" verse and different lyrics, at the end of each episode, that became the show's alma mater. The song remains popular as a children's music standard. In the show's opening the song is partially performed by the mute title character Dumbo and Jiminy Cricket.

The song was written by the Mickey Mouse Club host Jimmie Dodd. It was published by Hal Leonard Corporation, July 1, 1955. Dodd wrote other songs used over the course of the series. Dodd was a guitarist and musician hired by Walt Disney as a songwriter. Dodd also wrote the “theme day” songs accompanying it on the show.

Now Mouseketeers
There's one thing we want you
Always to remember

Come along and sing our song

Forever let us hold our
Banner high

Now it's time to say goodbye
To all our company

See you real soon
Why? Because we like you!
