Lyrics:

(It happened on one of those Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah days
Now thats the kind of day when you can't open your mouth
Without a song jumping right out of it)

Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Zip-A-Dee-A
My oh my what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headed my way
Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Zip-A-Dee-A

Mister blue birds on my shoulder
