"Worthless" is the last song of the movie The Brave Little Toaster sung by the Junkyard Cars. Each car sings about his/her life story before he/she gets killed by Crusher. Because of this, it is frequently considered as one of the darkest songs in Disney films, alongside "Hellfire" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Despite its sad and depressing lyrics, it is somewhat fast-paced, giving it a feeling of anticipation for eight of the Junkyard Cars as they face their deaths. It also sets the scene for Toaster and his gang's final tribulation.


I can't take this kind of pressure
I must confess one more dusty road
Would be just a road too long


I just can't, I just can't,
I just can't seem to get started
Don't have the heart to live in the fast lane
All that has passed and gone


(And there ain't nothing you can do about it)


(Pardon me while I panic!)

Worthless, worthless, worthless

I come from KC Missouri
And I got my kicks out on Route 66
Every truck stop from Butte to MO

Motown to Old Alabama
From Texarkana and east of Savannah
From Tampa to old Kokomo


I once ran the Indy 500
I must confess I'm impressed how I did it
I wonder how close that I came

Now I get a sinking sensation
I was the top of the line, out of sight; out of mind,
So much for fortune and fame

Once took a Texan to a wedding
Once took a Texan to a wedding
He kept forgetting, his loneliness letting
His thoughts turn to home and we turned

I took a man to a graveyard
I beg your pardon, it's quite hard enough
Just living with the stuff I have learned.


Once drove a surfer to sunset
There were bikinis and buns, there were weenies
Fellini just couldn't forget

Pico, let's go up to Zuma
Pico, let's go up to Zuma
From Zuma to Yuma the rumor was
I had a hand in the lay of the land

Get up and go hit the highway


I worked on a reservation


Who would believe they would love me and leave
On a bus back to old Santa Fe?

Once in an Indian Nation,
I took the kids on the skids where the Hopi
Was happy 'til I heard 'em say...

"You're worthless."


  • Originally, this song was going to be cut out because according to the producer, one of the Junkyard Cars was shown committing suicide by driving towards Crusher. However, for unknown reasons, the song remained in the movie. Although, from one point of view, the pickup might've been trying to escape but wound up on Crusher's conveyer anyway, given himself that he was originally facing it, but was then facing the viewers and singing to them towards the end of his story and the song.
  • In the Serbian dub, the song is instrumental and has few spoken vocal lines from the cars.
  • Interestingly enough, the song mentions Walt Disney's hometown, Kansas City, Missouri.
  • On the official soundtrack, the line "There were bikinis and buns, there were weenies" was spliced into something sounding like "There were kinis and huns, on the weenies". There's a clear skip in the audio where the first syllable of "bikinis" originally was.
