Disney Animation (50th Animated Motion Picture Version)

Tangled, "50th Animated Feature Film".

Disney Animation (Wreck-It Ralph Version)

Wreck-It Ralph, 8-Bit Variation.

Steamboat Bill is a 1911 song composed by Arthur Collins, it was later used in the 1928 film Steamboat Bill Jr. and then in the first Mickey Mouse short Steamboat Willie. Since then, the tune has become very representative for Disney, since Steamboat Willie is considered the most important cartoon of the studio. The song, along with the animation, has also become the trademark sign of Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Lyrics

Down the Mississippi came the Whippoorwill
Commanded by her captain, Mr. Steamboat Bill.
Billy gave his orders on the strict QT,
He was trying to beat the record of the Robert E. Lee.

"Open up the throttle, let the old smoke roll,
Pour on the cargo, if you run out of coal.
If you don't beat the record," Said Billy to his mate,
"You'll be meeting Saint Peter at the Pearly Gate."

Chorus
Steamboat Bill, steaming down the Mississippi.
Steamboat Bill, a mighty man was he.
Steamboat Bill, steaming down the Mississippi.
Steamboat Bill, he was trying to beat the record of the
Robert E. Lee!

Repeat chorus

Up spoke the gambling man from Louisville,
Trying to place a bet against the Whippoorwill.
Billy flashed a roll that would choke a bear,
As the explosion of the engine through them up in the air.

Repeat chorus

Said the gambling man, as they left the wreck,
"I don't know where we're going, but we're neck-and-neck!"
So, Billy said, "Here's what I'll do.
I'll bet another thousand, I go higher than you!"

Repeat chorus

(Slowly)
Now Missus Steamboat Billy was lying in bed,
When she got the news that her hubby was dead.
So she said to her children, "Now honey lambs,
You're next pappa's going to be a railroad man!"

Repeat chorus

Casey Jones, steaming and a rolling.
Casey Jones, a mighty man was he.
Casey Jones, steaming and a rolling.
Casey Jones, he was trying to beat the record of the B.M.T !
