Song lyrics to Lazy Countryside (1947) Written by Bobby Worth, Performed by Dinah Shore in Walt Disney’s Fun and Fancy Free

I love to hang around
The lazy countryside
(Where things are nice and breezy)
With nature’s gang around
The lazy countryside
(Where life is twice as easy)
Where the crickets you don’t hear in the city
Keep a-hummin’ in your ear, oh, so pretty

Song lyrics to Say It With a Slap (1947) Written by Buddy Kaye and Eliot Daniel, Performed by Dinah Shore and Chorus in Walt Disney’s Fun and Fancy Free

[Editor’s note: Say It With a Slap is, frankly, a weird little song. The concept is, when a boy & girl bear fall in love, they slap each other. The hero of the story, Bongo, has been raised in a circus … And doesn’t know this. And his would-be girlfriend is heartbroken that he won’t slap her. As I say, a weird little song …]
