"You Can Fly" is a song from Walt Disney's Peter Pan. It is completely sung by the Jud Conlon Chorus and the Mellomen. It was sung during Peter, Wendy, Michael, John and Tinker Bell's flight to Neverland.

In the House of Mouse episode "Donald Wants to Fly", Peter sings a version of the song with different lyrics to help Donald Duck learn to fly.

The song is the title one for the tape Disney Sing Along Songs: You Can Fly!, and was also featured on Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Magic Years and Disney Sing Along Songs: From Hercules.

An instrumental version is played in Tinker Bell on the music box that Tinker Bell repairs and returns to Wendy.

Lyrics

Spoken:
Wendy: But, Peter, how do we get to Never Land?
Peter: Fly, of course!
Wendy: Fly?
Peter: It's easy! All you have to do is to...is to...is to--Huh. That's funny!
Wendy: What's the matter? Don't you know?
Peter: Oh sure, it's, it's just that I never thought about it before.
Say, that's it! You think of a wonderful thought!
John and Wendy: Any happy little thought?
Peter: Uh-huh.
Wendy: Like toys at Christmas?
John: Sleight bells? Snow?
Peter: Yep! Watch me now--here I go!
It's easier than pie!

Wendy: He can fly!
John: He can fly!
Michael: He flewed!
Peter: Now, you try
Wendy: I'll think of a mermaid lagoon
Oh--underneath a magic moon
John: I'll think I'm in a pirate's cave
Michael: I'll think I'll be an Injun brave
All: Now, everybody try--one, two, three!
Children: We can fly! We can fly! We can fly!
Peter: This won't do--what's the matter with you?
All it takes is faith and trust... oh!
And something I forgot--Dust!
Children: Dust?
Michael: Dust?
Peter: Yep! Just a little bit of pixie dust.

Peter: Now, think of the happiest things.
It's the same as having wings
Wendy: Let's all try it, just once more
John: Look! We're rising off the floor
Michael: Jiminy!
Wendy: Oh my! We can fly!
Peter: You can fly!
Children: We can fly!
Peter: Come on, everybody, here we go!
Off to Never Land!

Chorus:
Think of a wonderful thought,
Any merry little thought,
Think of Christmas, think of snow, think of sleigh bells,
Off you go, like reindeer in the sky!
You can fly, you can fly, you can fly!!!

Think of the happiest things,
It's the same as having wings,
Take a path that moonbeams make,
If the moon is still awake,
You'll see him wink his eye (ohh...)
You can fly, you can fly, you can fly!!!

Off you go with a Hi and Ho
With the stars beyond the blue
There's a Never Land waiting for you
Where all your happy dreams come true
Every dream that you dream will come true

When there's a smile in your heart
There's no better time to start
Think of all the joy you'll find
When you leave the world behind
And bid your fears good-bye
You can fly, you can fly, you can fly!

Peter (spoken):
There it is, Wendy, second star to the right
and straight on 'til morning

(repeat previous verse)

When there's a smile in your heart
There is no better time to start

Think of all the joy you'll find
When you leave the world behind
And wave your cares good-bye

You can fly
You can fly
You can fly

Peter (spoken):
But don't be a chicken! You're a duck! If you wanna learn to fly, you're in luck. All you have to do is trust me. Okay, Tinkerbell! Pixie Dust me!

Just think of a wonderful thought

Donald (spoken):
Any happy little thought?

Peter:
Like sailing on the ocean blue
or Daisy Duck in love with you
And in the blink of an eye

(spoken) You can fly!

Donald (spoken):
I can fly!

Lost Boys (spoken):
He can fly!

Peter (spoken):
You can fly!

Donald (spoken):
I can... (crashes into a pillar) Aw, nuts!

Peter: (spoken):
All right! Get off the floor! Let's try it once more!

Just lift you tail and your beak
Now you're aerodynamic
You can soar to dizzy heights
and finally see your name in lights

Captain Hook (spoken):
Hey, there's a duck in the sky!

Donald (spoken):
I can fly!

Goofy (spoken):
You can fly!

Donald (spoken):
I can fly!

Horace (spoken):
You can fly!

Donald (spoken):
I can fly!

Chorus:
You can fly
You can fly
You can fly
You can fly
You can fly!
