"Put On Your Sunday Clothes" is the opening song of the Pixar film, WALL-E, originally from the 1969 musical film, Hello, Dolly!.

In the movie, WALL-E owns an old VHS tape of the musical which he probably found years or centuries ago and often learns and copies the dance moves portrayed by the characters while watching it. He keeps a recording of the song on him and listens to it while he works cleaning up the garbage and when malfunctioning robots aboard the Axiom listen to it they too catch on with the rhythm.

An instrumental can also be heard at Main Street, U.S.A., as Area-Music.

Lyrics

Cornelius: Out there, there's a world outside of Yonkers
Way out there beyond this hick town, Barnaby
There's a slick town, Barnaby
Out there, full of shine and full of sparkle
Close your eyes and see it glisten, Barnaby
Listen, Barnaby...
Put on your Sunday clothes,
There's lots of world out there
Get out the brillantine and dime cigars
We're gonna find adventure in the evening air
Girls in white in a perfumed night
Where the lights are bright as the stars!
Put on your Sunday clothes, we're gonna ride through town
In one of those new horsedrawn open cars
Cornelius & Barnaby: We'll see the shows at Delmonicos
And we'll close the town in a whirl
And we won't come until we've kissed a girl!

Dolly: Put on your Sunday clothes when you feel down and out
Strut down the street and have your picture took
Dressed like a dream your spirits seem to turn about
That Sunday shine is a certain sign
That you feel as fine as you look!
Dolly & Ambrose: Beneath your parasol, the world is all a smile
That makes you feel brand new down to your toes
Dolly, Ambrose, Cornelius, & Barnaby: Get out your feathers, your patent leathers
Your beads and buckles and bows
For there's no blue Monday in your Sunday...
No Monday in your Sunday...
No Monday in your Sunday clothes!

Townspeople, All: Put on your Sunday clothes when you feel down and out
Strut down the street and have your picture took
Dolly, Townspeople, All: Dressed like a dream your spirits seem to turn about
That Sunday shine is a certain sign
That you feel as fine as you look!
Women: Beneath your parasol, the world is all a smile
All: That makes you feel brand new down to your toes
Get out your feathers, your patent leathers
Your beads and buckles and bows
For there's no blue Monday in your Sunday clothes!

(dance interlude)

Children: Put on your Sunday clothes when you feel down and out
Strut down the street and have your picture took
Women: Dressed like a dream your spirits seem to turnabout
Townspeople, All: That Sunday shine is a certain sign
That you feel as fine as you look!
Beneath your bowler brim the world's a simple song
A lovely lilt that makes you tilt your nose
Get out your slickers, your flannel knickers
Your red suspenders and hose
For there's no blue Monday in your Sunday clothes!

Dolly: Ermengarde, keep smiling, no man wants a little ninny!
Ambrose do a turn, let me see!
Mr.Hackel, Mr.Tucker don't forget Irene and Minnie,
Just forget you ever heard a word from me!
All Aboard!

Townspeople: All Aboard!
Dolly: All Aboard!
Townspeople: All Aboard!
Dolly: Aboard!
All: All Aboard! All Aboard! All Aboard! All Aboard!

Put on your Sunday clothes there's lots of world out there
Put on your silk cravat and patent shoes
We're gonna find adventure in the evening air

Dolly: To town we'll trot to a smokey spot
Where the girls are hot as a fuse!

All: WOW!

All: Put on your silk high hat and at the turned up cuff
We'll wear a hand made gray suede buttoned glove
Dolly: We wanna take New York by Storm!
All: We'll join the Astors, at Tony Pastor's
And this I'm positive of that we won't come home
No we won't come home
No we won't come home until we fall in love!
