Robin Hood - Oo De Lally

"Oo-De-Lally" is a song from the movie Robin Hood. The song is sung by Alan-A-Dale, voiced by Roger Miller.

This song was included on the VHS, Disney Sing Along Songs: I Love to Laugh!


Robin Hood and Little John
Walkin' through the forest
Laughin' back and forth
At what the other'ne has to say

Reminiscin', This-'n'-thattin'
Havin' such a good time
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day

Never ever thinkin' there was danger in the water
They were drinkin', they just guzzled it down
Never dreamin' that a schemin' sheriff and his posse
Was a-watchin' them an' gatherin' around

Robin Hood and Little John
Runnin' through the forest
Jumpin' fences, dodgin' trees
An' tryin' to get away

Contemplatin' nothin'
But escape an' fin'lly makin' it
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day

(Repeated in sing along version)

Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day


  • Oo-de-lally is a term popularized during the 1950s meaning "Yay" or "Yippee".
