SO DEAR TO MY HEART (Soundtrack) Songs from the Walt Disney Film "So Dear To My Heart" (1948) Starring Beulah Bondi, Burl Ives, Bobby Driscoll and Luana Patten. SO DEAR TO MY HEART Written by Irving Taylor & Ticker Freeman Performed by John Beal So dear to my heart That September-y day When that old shady lane we strolled Was just turning scarlet and gold So dear to my heart So dear to my heart That December-y day When the first touch of frost and snow Had painted each tree in the road So dear to my heart (So dear to my heart) I still can picture he flowers in the showers And that picnic in July And I still treasure each and ev'ry hour Of those years that had to fly They're locked in my heart In a corner apart While I tenderly hold the key As long as I live they will be So dear to my heart. (Aah-aah-aah-aah-aah) ******************** IT'S WHATCHA DO WITH WHATCHA GOT Written by Don Raye & Gene DePaul Performed by Ken Carson & Female Group THE OWL: There, if you're aimin' to carry that wreath around You better keep your chin up And your feet on the ground There, that's better Makin' a champ out of a critter like you Won't be an easy thing to do Well, let's see now Come over here, Danny and we'll take a look Maybe get some help from the wisdom book Ya know, just 'cause you're a little ol' sheep Don't mean you can't get to the top of the heap Where there's a will, there's a way Every dog has his day Heh-heh, sounds kinda corny, I'll admit But we oughtta find som'in' that'll help a bit A rolling stone...nah, that don't fit Ha, here we are, Danny, this is it It's what you dew...

Because she thought he was right Queen Isabella, one night, Gave him three small boats One, two, three Now, the boats were kinda leaky, started to sail Came a hurricane, a furious gale Waves were a-lashin', future looked black Sailors started yellin', "Chris, turn back!" On that eventful day, what did Columbus say? COLUMBUS: Why, I said, "Stick-to-it-ivity If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity You're gonna do all right. Old Man Adversity gonna have his bluff called Stick-to-it-ivity never lost a fight Yes siree (Yes siree) Yes siree (Yes siree) You can clear the deck for opportunity By applyin' Stick-to-it-ivity If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity You're gonna do all right (Land Ho, Land Ho) We're gonna do all right THE OWL: Now, don't think Columbus was the only one Who did what folks said couldn't be done So when folks say't ain't no use Remember Robert Bruce Now, Robert was the bravest king Scotland's ever known Came the enemy to threaten his throne Twice he went to battle, twice he met defeat Headed for the highlands in retreat He thought he'd give up the fight But it so happened one night he saw a spider at work Back and forth, and back, up and down, and up Spider kept a-swingin', swingin' on his thread Tried to hook it to a limb overhead Spider kept a-missin' ev'ry time he tried ROBERT BRUCE: You're never goin' to make it! THE OWL: Robert Cried THE OWL: On that eventful day What did the spider say THE SPIDER: Says I, "Robert, me lad, Stick-to-it-ivity If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity You're gain' do all right Old Man Adversity gain' have his bluff called. Stick-to-it-ivity never lost a fight" ROBERT BRUCE: Yes siree (Yes siree) Yes siree (Yes siree) You can clear the deck for opportunity By applyin' Stick-to-it-ivity If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity You're gonna do all right We're gonna do all right! (Yes siree, yes siree) (You can clear the deck for opportunity) (By applyin' Stick-to-it-ivity) (If you've got that stuff called Stick-to-it-ivity) (You're gonna do all right) (You're gonna do all right) ******************** THE HONEY SONG Performed by Burl Ives Jerry Kincaid followed the bee Till he come to a cottonwood tree Sawed that tree off to the ground Two tubs o' honey is what he found Git outta the way, we ain't braggin' So much honey, the wagon's saggin' Hope them axles don't break down 'Fore we get this load to town This load o' honey means money for the Fair Jerry Kincaid is a millionaire Grundy's payin' ten cents a pound Git along hoss, we're goin' to town ******************* COUNTY FAIR Written by Bob Wells & Mel Tormé Performed by Ken Carson & Female Group THE WISE OLD OWL: Ho-dee-eye, ho-dee-aye What a great big, wonderful day Not a care in the air Ev'rybody ya know >From Matilda to Joe Will be there At the County Fair Ho-dee-eye, ho-dee-aye THE BIRDS: What a great big, beautiful sky THE OWL: All the clowns, like the crowds THE BIRDS: You can bet they'll be dressed In their brightest and best For this day At the County Fair The teenage misters Will be shooin' little sisters To the Ferris wheel up above And they'll be gettin' Their best gals for pettin' In the Tunnel of Love THE OWL: Ho-dee-eye THE BIRDS: Ay-oh-aye THE OWL: Ho-dee-aye THE BIRDS: Ay-oh-aye ALL: Come and blow your troubles away THE OWL: Just a grin gets you in ALL: On this day of the year When there's nothing, but cheer To share At the County Fair ******************** JERRY'S LAMB Performed by Burl Ives Oh, get out of the way for Jerry's lamb Hi-diddle-oh for Jerry's lamb Get out of the way for Jerry's lamb Hip-hip, get out of the way, woh Hip-hip, get out of the way, woh Hip-hip, get out of the way, woh Hip-hip, get out of the way ******************** All songs transcribed and/or verfified by Mel Priddle - March 2013) ******************** (Contributed by Mel Priddle - March 2013)
