"On the Open Road" is a song sung in the 1995 film A Goofy Movie. It is sung by Goofy and Max as they travel.

The song was included on the Disney Sing-Along Songs videos Honor to Us All and On My Way in the US and The Hunchback of Notre Dame internationally outside of the US.

Lyrics

[Goofy whistles, intro]

Goofy: Do ya need a break from modern livin'?
Do ya long to shed your weary load?
If your nerves are raw
And your brain is fried,
Just grab a friend and take a ride
Together, upon the open road.
C'mon, Maxie! Ah-yuk!

Max: All in all, I'd rather have detention!
All in all, I'd rather eat a toad!
Goofy: Yuck!
Max: And the old man drives like such a klutz,
That I'm about to hurl my guts,
Directly upon the open road!

Goofy: There's nothin' can upset me,
'Cause now, we're on our way,
Our trusty map will guide us straight and true.
Max: Roxanne, please don't forget me,
I will return someday,
Though I may be in traction when I do...!

Goofy: Me and Max relaxin' like the old days,
Max: [singing over Goofy] This is worse than dragon breath and acne!
Goofy: In a buddy-buddy kind of mode.
Max: [still singing over Goofy] I'm so mad I think I may explode!
Goofy: When I see that highway, I could cry!
Max: Ya know, that's funny, so could I!
Both: Just bein' out on the open road!

[Instrumental]

Female Country Singers: Howdy, boys,
Is this the way to Nashville?
Tow Truck Driver: Watch it, Mac!
Or you'll be gettin' towed!
Prisoner: I'm in no hurry to arrive,
'Cause I'll be turnin' sixty-five,
The next time I seize the open road.

Small Man: Just a week of rest and relaxation!
Large Woman: Yeah!
Small Man: And the odd romantic episode!
Max: Very odd!
Mickey Mouse: Ha ha!
And it's Californ-eye-ay or bust!
Old Lady: Look out, you dirtbags, eat my dust!
From now on, I own the open road!

Goofy: Just me and little Maxie,
My pipsqueak pioneer.
Nuns: They're pardners forever westward ho!
Nuns and Goofy: Yeehaw!
Max: Could someone call a taxi
And get me outta here,
To Beverly Hills 9-0-2-1-0?

Chorus and Goofy: Oh...
Every day, another new adventure!
Every mile, another new zip code!
And the cares we had are gone for good...
Max: And I'd go with them if I could...
Goofy and Chorus: I've got no strings on me...
I'm feelin' fancy-free...
How wonderful to be...

On the open road!

[Goofy whistles, intro]

Goofy: Do ya need a break from modern livin'?
Do ya long to shed your weary load?
If your nerves are raw
And your brain is fried,
Just grab a friend and take a ride
Together, upon the open road.
C'mon, Maxie!

Max: All in all, I'd rather have detention!
All in all, I'd rather kiss a toad!
And the old man drives like such a klutz,
That I'm about to hurl my guts,
Directly upon the open road!

Goofy: The highway lies before us
The road is straight and true.
It hardly knows we're doing 85.
Max: Don't break my heart, Dolores (Roxanne).
I will come back to you,
I'm just not sure if I'll come back alive.

Goofy: Me and Max relaxin' like the old days,
Max: [singing over Goofy] Me and Pop are droppin' from a bunion.
Goofy: In a buddy-buddy kind of mode.
Max: [still singing over Goofy] And this heap is ready to explode!
Goofy: And the cares we've had are gone for good!
Max: Along with the brakes and half the hood!
Both: Relent them back on the open road!

Max: (Speaking) How about some barbecue chips?
Goofy: (Speaking) Great. That's what the public wants, you face it.
Max: Oh, Dad.

Goofy: Just look at little Maxie,
My pipsqueak pioneer.
We're partners forever westward ho. Yee-haw!
Max:' Could someone call a taxi
And get me outta here,
To Beverly Hills 9-0-2-1-0?

Both: Oh...
It's an indescribable adventure!
Max: Sorta like a Star Trek episode,
And look out, slow down, or you'll hit that truck.
Goofy: I'd like to, son, but the gears are stuck.
Max: You can't turn here! It's a one-way street!
Goofy: Just hold on tight and stay in your seat and...

(speaking) You're all right, son?
Max: I guess so. Where are we?
Goofy: (gasps) Look, Maxie!
We're on the open
Both: Road!

Trivia

In the demo version, the concluding lyrics had Goofy and Max almost about to crash in an oncoming truck. So, the tempo was sped up to add in suspense. However, the composers felt the demo was too short for the final film. So, they rewrote "On the Open Road" to add in some back-up singers serving as drivers and, of course, a cameo from Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
