It Happens I Have a Picture is a deleted song from the 1959 Disney animated feature film, Sleeping Beauty.


The song was originally going to follow the opening number "Holiday" (another deleted song) but for the final cut, both versions ended up getting deleted. Although a demo version of the song was recorded, this version was not unearthed as it was considered lost. However, the original audition recordings from 1952 have survived with a version performed by Hans Conried as King Stefan, Bill Thompson as King Hubert, and Bill Scott as Lord Duke. For the final cut, as Thompson was finalized as Hubert, Conried replaced Scott for the role of Duke when Taylor Holmes was casted as Stefan for his last film role. The song ended up in the 2008 Platinum Edition of Sleeping Beauty where two versions of the songs are included: one which a modern recording, which is about King Stefan and King Hubert singing about their virtues of their children while another one, which is the original version was included using the same lyrics as the previous version, albeit spoken instead of sung.[1]

The song was later included in The Legacy Collection: Sleeping Beauty featuring two versions of the song, consisting of the demo auditions recorded by Bill Thompson, Hans Conried, and Bill Scott themselves as well as the newly-recorded version performed by Randy Crenshaw.


Now it happens I have a picture
Of my son at the age of two
I don't like to boast,
But yet he's the most
Remarkable boy I ever knew

It happens I have a picture
Of my daughter who's three days old
I won't tell you lies
Just look at those eyes
Did you ever see hair so gold?

Did I tell you what he said?
The funniest thing I ever heard

Did I tell you what she did?
Well, it's too, too, too absurd!

She's really the living picture
Of my wife as you plainly see
Though most people say,
That day after day
She's the picture of me!
