"Ichabod Crane" is a song from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad short, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, sung by Bing Crosby. It is performed during the mid opening of the film as everyone in Sleepy Hollow spot Ichabod Crane arriving and passing through town.


Who's that comin' down the street?
Are they shovels or are they feet?
Lean and lanky skin and bone
With clothes a scarecrow would hate to own

Yet he has a certain air
Debonair and devil-may-care
Woman: It's the new schoolmaster.
Tilda: What's his name?
Ichabod: Ichabod
Ichabod Crane

All: Ichabod, what a name
Kind of odd but nice just the same
Funny pan
Funny frame
Ichabod Crane

Ichabod may be quaint
May be odd and maybe he ain't
Anyway, there's no complaint
From Ichabod
Ichabod Crane

Though the arrival of the pedagogue gave rise to mixed emotions, the townspeople all agreed they'd never seen anyone...
Like Ichabod
Ichabod Crane

Who's the town's ladies' man?
Gets around like nobody can
Has to be none other than...
Ichabod Crane

He has feet like shovels
Walks like a crane
Nose sticks out like a weathervane
Lean and lanky and skin and bone
With clothes a scarecrow would like to own

But with the ladies
He's right there
Debonair and devil-may-care
He's no skitter-scatterbrain
Not old Ichabod Crane

Ichabod, odd old boy
Ichabod, that hobbledehoy
Who's his own best pride and joy?
Ichabod Crane

Now who's the town's ladies' man?
Who gets around like nobody can?
Well, it has to be none other than
Ichabod Crane
