We're happy-hearted roustabouts
Hike, ugh, hike, ugh hike, ugh, hike
We don't know when we get our pay
And when we do we throw our pay away
We get our pay when children say
Muscles aching Back near breaking
Eggs and bacon's what we need
- Yes, sir! - Boss man houndin'
Keep on poundin'
For your bread and keep
There ain't no letup
Got to set up
Pull that canvas
Drive that stake
Want to doze off Get them clothes off
But must keep awake
Hep! Heave! Hep! Heave! Hep! Heave! Hep! Heave!
Hep! Heave! Hep! Heave! Hep! Heave! Hep!
Swing that sledge Sing that song
"You happy"-"hearted roustabouts"
Pullin', poundin' tyin', groundin'
Big top roundin'into shape
Keep on workin' Stop that shirkin'
Grab that rope,you hairy ape
Jostling and juggling. Fifteen minutes!
Hurry to the big sideshow. That's why you go under the big top.
Synopsis: A young circus elephant is born with comically large ears and given the cruel nickname Dumbo. One day at a show, he is taunted by a group of kids, inciting his mother into a rage that gets her locked up. After Dumbo's ears cause an accident that injures many of the other elephants, he is made to dress like a clown and perform dangerous stunts. Everything changes when Dumbo discovers that his enormous ears actually allow him to fly, and he astounds everyone at the circus with his new talent.
