"Work Song (Cinderelly, Cinderelly)" is a song written and composed by Mack David, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston for the film Cinderella (1950). It is sung by the mice.

It was included in the Disney Sing Along Songs videos The Bare Necessities, Colors of the Wind, and Perfectly Princess.

Context

All the wome in the kingdom have been invited to a ball at the castle, and Lady Tremaine allows Cinderella to attend it, provided that she gets all her work done and has a nice dress by then. Cinderella thinks about fixing up her mother's old dress and wearing it to the ball, before her stepfamily calls her down to serve them. Jaq, knowing full-well that they're going to run her ragged before she can have time improve the dress, laments that it'll be impossible for her to go to the ball. Then, one of the mice gets the idea to for them all fix up the dress while she's working and surprise Cinderella later that evening.

Lyrics

Every time she find a minute
That's the time that they begin it!
Cinderelly! Cinderelly!
(CINDERELLLLLLA!!!)

Cinderelly Cinderelly
Night and day it's Cinderelly
Make the fire!
Fix the breakfast!
Wash the dishes!
Do the mopping!
And the sweeping and the dusting!
They always keep her hopping!
She go around in circles till she very, very dizzy
Still they holler, keep-a busy Cinderelly!

(Music break)

We can do it, we can do it,
We can help-a Cinderelly
We can make a dress so pretty
There's nothing to it really.
We'll tie a sash around it
Pull a ribbon through it
When dancing at the ball
She'll be more beautiful than all
In the lovely dress we'll make for Cinderelly

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gotta help-a Cinderelly
Got no time to dilly dally
We gotta get-a going

I'll cut it with these scissors
And I can do the sewing
Leave the sewing to the women
You go get some trimming
And we'll make a lovely dress for Cinderelly
Yes, we'll make a lovely dress for Cinderelly!

Trivia

  • In the Chowder episode "Shnitzel Quits", the three rats sings "Schnitzel-Fella", which sounds similar to "The Work Song".
