"Oo-De-Lally" is the first song of Disney's 1973 animated feature film, Robin Hood. The song is sung by Alan-A-Dale, voiced by Roger Miller.

This song was included on the VHS, Disney Sing Along Songs: I Love to Laugh!, the UK version of Disney Sing Along Songs: Colors of the Wind, and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Magic Years.


Robin Hood and Little John
Were walking through the forest
Laughing back and forth at what
The other one has to say

Reminiscing this and that
And having such a good time
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day

Never ever thinking there was danger in the water
They were drinking, they just guzzled it down
Never dreaming that a scheming Sheriff and his posse
Was a-watching them and gathering around

Robin Hood and Little John
Were running through the forest
Jumping fences, dodging trees
And trying to get away

Contemplating nothing
But escape and finally making it
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day

(Repeated in sing-along version)

Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day


  • "Oo-de-lally" is a term popularized during the 1950s meaning "yay" or "yippee."
  • The song has recently appeared in a commercial for Google's Android set to live-action clips of animals playing and getting along with each other, with the tag "Friends Furever."
