The Motion Waltz (Emotional Commotion) is a song heard during the credits of the 2007 Disney animated film, Meet the Robinsons. It is heard after the All American Rejects version of The Future Has Arrived and is sung by Rufus Wainwright.


While heard as background music in the film, it is played during the end credits. The song's lyrics describe Lewis' imagination about his inventions and how he can have a better future in a happier life when his inventions were successful throughout his participation in the school's science fair.


Waiting to cross the Rubicon
Wondering what side I'm on
What are these visions of me as a young man
With one arm pointing and the other arm holding your hand?

Needing a plan to keep you near
Blowing a horn so you can hear
If it was only my love and devotion
This world would suddenly be in a state of commotion

Emotional commotion, emotional commotion
Emotional commotion, emotional commotion

(humming verse)

I never get around under the sun and the stars
And I may be always frowning
But one day, you will see under the sun and the stars
You will turn around and I'll be...
In motion

Emotional commotion, emotional commotion
Emotional commotion, emotional commotion
Emotional commotion, emotional motion
