"Yodel-Adle-Eedle-Idle-Oo" is a song featured in the animated Disney film Home on the Range. It is sung by the villain Alameda Slim (Randy Quaid) as he is abducting the cattle.


Slim: Now listen up!
There are crooks in this here West
Who have claimed to be the best
An' I think they wrote the book on how to rustle.
Well, as good as they may be,
Not a one's as good as me,
An' I barely have to move a single muscle!

They call me mean, boys!
Depraved and nasty, too.
And they ain't seen, boys,
The cruelest thing I do!





The sweetest way of rustlin' yet devised!
'Cause when I yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odel,
Why, looky how dem cows get hypnotized!

Bill: He don't prod,
Phil: He don't yell,
Gill: Still he drives them doggies well,
Brothers: Which ain't easy when your chaps are labeled XXXXL!

Alameda: Yes, if you're lookin' from a bovine point of view,
I sure can yodel-adle-eedle-idle

(spoken) Here we go, boys! Five thousand cattle in the side pocket! Aha!

[Yodels "William Tell Overture", "Yankee Doodle" and "Beethoven's Ode to Joy"]

Yes, I can yodel-adle-eedle-odel!
Brothers: …A sound them cattle truly take to heart!
Alameda: Yeah, I can yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odel-adle-eedle-idle-odel
An' smack my big ol' rump if that ain't art!

Gill: He don't rope,
Bill: Not a chance!
Phil: He just puts 'em in a trance --
Brothers: He's a pioneer Pied Piper in ten-gallon underpants!

Alameda: Yep! I'm the real rip-roarin' deal to those who moo,
Thanks to my yodel-adle-eedle-idle
I got cattle out the ol' wazoo
'Cause I can yodel-adle-eedle-idle-oo!



  • This song is similar to "Yodel Odel Obey Me." Both are yodeling songs sung by villains to hypnotize their listeners.
