"Three Cheers for Anything" is a deleted song from the animated feature Pinocchio.

The song was to have been performed by Lampwick, Pinocchio and other boys as they traveled aboard the coach bound for Pleasure Island, openly celebrating bad behavior and discussing what they plan to do once they get there.

The song would end up being cut in order to streamline the story, and because Frankie Darro, the voice of Lampwick, couldn't sing very well. Despite the cut, the song was sold and advertised to the public upon the film's release, and a snippets of the melody can be heard in the underscore as Pinocchio and Lampwick converse on the coach.

Lyrics

Down with schoolrooms! Down with books!
Down with teacher's dirty looks!
That's the way we feel today, that's why we smile
For we know we're on our way to Pleasure Isle

Three cheers for anything
Anything and everything
For rolling a hoop, or blowing your soup
Or anything else as crazy

Three cheers for anything
Absolutely anything
A bottle of pop, or spinning a top
Or throwing an egg in a fan

Hippety-hip-hooray
For anything you say
The way that we feel today
We'd even cheer for spinach

Three cheers for anything
Anything and everything
For penny arcades and circus parades
For pink lemonades in several shades
In fact, three cheers for anything

(instrumental break)

Three cheers for anything
Anything and everything
Whatever it is, as long as it is
Another good reason for laughter

Three cheers for anything
Absolutely anything
For strawberry pie, or swatting a fly
Or giving a whoop and a yell

Hippety-hip-hooray
For anything you say
We're gonna eat today
With elbows on the table

Three cheers for anything
Anything and anything
For catching a fish, or flying a kite
For having a swim, or having a fight
In fact, three cheers for anything

Trivia

  • One story idea for the deleted sequence had Pinocchio chime in with the only lyric he knew: "Let your conscience be your guide!". The other boys, believing the remark to be sarcasm, would have broken into uproarious laughter and lauded Pinocchio for his comedy.
