The Lyrics

no doubt
his films caused lots of laughter
cool critter
verve, but not a vermin
not an ordinary guy
learnin' 'bout the mouse

took flight
his cartoons bowled folks over
reached heights
a figure, fans would treasure
he's still around today
learnin' 'bout the mouse

he's not wicked or a drag
time's eclipsed and fans aren't bored
there's ovations and cheers
since the first days, he's gone far
now he is a superstar
not retired, nor fired

jet set
he's minnie's favorite dreamboat
big clown
he's often in the spotlight
though he's past sixty-five, you see
learnin' 'bout the mouse

big black nose upon his face
he often makes fun of himself
he's all over the place
disney made the idea work
though others thought him circumspect
cannot argue with fame

wry mouse
his laughter sounds so merry
he's bright
wears shorts upon his body
big clunky shoes upon his feet
learnin' 'bout the mouse

in black and white were his first shorts
then color on your TV screen
watching him is a pleasure
close friends get to call him mick
and no one's tired yet, of his schtick
he's remained on fire

learnin' 'bout the mouse
