"Whistle While You Work" is a song featured in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In the film, upon discovering the Cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, Snow White decides to clean the house and its contents, thinking that its inhabitants will be grateful enough to let her stay. The Forest Animals help her as she sings.

Donald Duck and Goofy were heard whistling and humming the song in the cartoon Billposters.

The Kidsongs Kids and the Camp Counselors sing this song in the "A Day at Camp" video where they're doing preparations of the show.

It was included in Disney Sing Along Songs: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Early Years. It is also the first song featured in the Disney Sing-Along Songs video Disneyland Fun. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Chip 'n' Dale, and Roger Rabbit sing the song at the beginning of the video as they are getting Disneyland ready for its visitors.

In the first episode of DuckTales, Scrooge McDuck makes a reference to the song by chastising one of his employees, telling him "There'll be no whistling while you work!"

Lyrics

Just whistle while you work
And cheerfully together we can tidy up the place
So hum a merry tune
It won't take long when there's a song to help you set the pace
And as you sweep the room
Imagine that the broom is someone that you love
And soon you'll find you're dancing to the tune
(Spoken: Oh, no, no, no, no! Put them in the tub)
When hearts are high the time will fly so whistle while you work

Whistle while you work
Put on that grin and start right in to whistle loud and long
Just hum a merry tune
Just do your best and then take a rest and sing yourself a song
When there's too much to do
Don't let it bother you, forget your troubles
Try to be just like a cheerful chick-a-dee
And whistle while you work
Come on get smart, tune up and start
To whistle while you work

Snow White:
Just whistle while you work
Put on that grin and start right in to whistle loud and long
Just hum a merry tune
Just do your best and then take a rest and sing yourself a song
When there's too much to do
Don't let it bother you, forget your troubles
Try to be just like a cheerful chick-a-dee
And whistle while you work
Come on get smart, tune up and start
To whistle while you work

Chorus:
Whistle while you work,
whistle while you work
whistle, whistle, whistle while you work

Whistle while you work
Come on get smart, tune up and start
To whistle while you work
