"Stick-to-it-ivity" is a song from Disney's 1948 movie So Dear to My Heart. It was sung by Ken Carson and a vocal chorus.

Lyrics

The Owl:
Hey, hey there, don't tell me you're givin' up
Now, where there's a will, there's a way to do it
But, you'll nver get there if you don't stick to it
Now, let me tell you about a fellow who had the right stuff
And wouldn't give up, even when the goin' got rough

Now, Christopher Columbus, a-livin' in Spain
Showed capacity for usin' his brain
Studied his geography, had it down pat
Said, "I'm gonna prove that the world ain't flat!"

Because she thought he was right
Queen Isabella, one night,
Gave him three small boats
One, two, three

Now, the boats were kinda leaky, started to sail
Came a hurricane, a furious gale
Waves were a-lashin', future looked black
Sailors started yellin', "Chris, turn back!"
On that eventful day, what did Columbus say?

Columbus:
Why, I said, "Stick-to-it-ivity
If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity
You're gonna do all right.
Old Man Adversity gonna have his bluff called
Stick-to-it-ivity never lost a fight
Yes siree (Yes siree)
Yes siree (Yes siree)
You can clear the deck for opportunity
By applyin' Stick-to-it-ivity
If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity
You're gonna do all right (Land Ho, Land Ho)
We're gonna do all right

The Owl:
Now, don't think Columbus was the only one
Who did what folks said couldn't be done
So when folks say't ain't no use
Remember Robert Bruce

Now, Robert was the bravest king
Scotland's ever known
Came the enemy to threaten his throne
Twice he went to battle, twice he met defeat
Headed for the highlands in retreat

He thought he'd give up the fight
But it so happened one night he saw a spider at work
Back and forth, and back, up and down, and up
Spider kept a-swingin', swingin' on his thread
Tried to hook it to a limb overhead
Spider kept a-missin' ev'ry time he tried
Robert Bruce: You're never goin' to make it!
The Owl: Robert cried

The Owl:
On that eventful day
What did the spider say
The Spider:
Says I? "Robert, me lad, Stick-to-it-ivity
If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity
You're gain' do all right
Old Man Adversity gain' have his bluff called.
Stick-to-it-ivity never lost a fight"

Robert Bruce:
Yes, siree (Yes, siree)
Yes, siree (Yes, siree)
You can clear the deck for opportunity
By applyin' Stick-to-it-ivity
If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity
You're gonna do all right
We're gonna do all right!

(Yes, siree, yes, siree)
(You can clear the deck for opportunity)
(By applyin' Stick-to-it-ivity)
(If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity)
(You're gonna do all right)
(You're gonna do all right)
