"The Spirit of Adventure" is a song from the 2009 Disney/Pixar computer-animated film Up written by Michael Giacchino and performed by Craig Copeland. It is named after Charles Muntz's blimp, and it can be heard in the film's end credits.


Adventure is out there, it's heading our way

So grab your scarf and goggles, let's fly!

I've mapped out our journey, we're up here to stay.

A sunset is our home, a moonbeam we will own.

My Spirit of Adventure is you!

Adventure is out there, it's my Holy Grail,

So cannibals and tigers beware!

I've made my life's journey to blaze every trail.

I've got my aero fare. The high-brows will be there.

My Spirit of Adventure is you!

The freaks of nature span the globe, that's too big to deny.

With canine guards we'll travel there and spit into their eye!

I can't wait another day

For my life to waste away.

We'll make it a joint venture, before we're in our dentures.

My Spirit of Adventure is you!

(instrumental break)

Gargantuan monstrosities larger than a whale,

Come with me and we will snatch that giant monkey's tail!

Bang, bang! Once the smoke has cleared,

After all the crowds have cheered,

Another risky venture, it sure would be the clincher!

My Spirit of Adventure is you!

Adventure is out there, let's crack some champagne.

I've hung a hundred heads on my wall!

To say that I've traveled is far too mundane.

Let's grab our aero fare. A New Deal will be there.

The Spirit of Adventure is something to indenture.

My Spirit of Adventure is you!
