"Little Wooden Head" is a song featured in the 1940 Disney animated feature film Pinocchio. Geppetto sings it as he first uses his newly built marionette, while a music box provides the music. After singing, the rest of the song is instrumental where Geppetto introduces Pinocchio to his cat, Figaro and his goldfish, Cleo. Some soundtracks feature the song without any singing, although the sing along version is only available on the 1992 early release of "Be Our Guest" sing along version.

Lyrics[]

Little wooden head, go play your part
Bring a little joy to every heart
Little do you know and yet it's true
That I'm mighty proud of you
Little wooden feet and best of all
Little wooden seat in case you fall
(How graceful!)
My little wooden head!

(instrumental)

Happy little chap with a feather in your cap
Though they made you of wood, you never give a rap
Always doing good as a little puppet should
Chasing each gloomy day away

Little wooden head with eyes that shine
Little wooden head that's made of pine
In a weary world, you do your share
Spreading laughter everywhere

Funny little toy, go play your part
Bring a little joy to every heart
Never let a single tear be shed
My little wooden head!

Geppetto: Little wooden head, go play your part
Bring a little joy to every heart
Little do you know and yet it's true
That I'm mighty proud of you
Little wooden feet and best of all
Little wooden seat in case you fall
(How graceful!)
My little wooden head!

Chorus: Happy little chap with a feather in your cap
Though they made you of wood, you never give a rap
Always doing good as a little puppet should
Chasing each gloomy day away

Little wooden head with eyes that shine
Little wooden head that's made of pine
In a weary world, you do your share
Spreading laughter everywhere

Little wooden feet and best of all
Little wooden seat in case you fall
Never let a single tear be shed
My little wooden head

Little wooden head, go play your part
Bring a little joy to every heart
Little do you know and yet it's true
That I'm mighty proud of you
Little wooden feet and best of all
Little wooden seat in case you fall
Never let a single tear be shed
My little... wooden... head!
