Song of the Roustabouts

video from Dumbo (1941) music by Frank Churchill, lyrics by Ned Washington, sung by a chorus;
Lyrics
Hike! Ugh! Hike! Ugh! Hike!/We work all day, we work all night
We never learned to read or write/We're happy-hearted roustabouts

Hike! Ugh! Hike! Ugh! Hike!/When other folks have gone to bed
We slave until we're almost dead/We're happy-hearted roustabouts
Hike! Ugh! Hike! Ugh! Hike!/We don't know when we get our pay
And when we do, we throw our pay away
(When we get our pay, we throw our money all away)
We get our pay when children say
With happy hearts, "It's circus day today"
Muscles achin'/ Back near breaking
Eggs and bacon what we need (Yes, sir!)
Boss man houndin'/ Keep on poundin'
For your bed and feed / There ain't no let up
Must get set up / Pull that canvas! Drive that stake!
Want to doze off / Get them clothes off
But must keep awake / Swing that sledge! Sing that song!
Work and laugh the whole night long
You happy-hearted roustabouts!
Pullin', poundin', tryin', groundin'/Big top roundin' into shape
Keep on working! / Stop that shirking!
Grab that rope, you hairy ape! / Poundin'!
