Song History

“The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room" is the official song of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. It was written in 1963 by Richard and Robert Sherman. "The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Room" is the opening number in the attraction. The song is sung by the show's four hosts Jose, Peirre, Fritz and Michael as well as various background birds. "The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room" was performed in the orginial Tropical Serendade and could also be heard breifly in The Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management. When the attraction was reopened in 2011 as Walt Disney's The Enchanted Tiki Room, the song once again led off the show.

Lyrics

Jose:  Ole!  Ole!  It's showtime!

Chorus: In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.

Jose: Welcome to our tropical hideaway, you lucky people you. If we weren't in the show starting right away, we'd be the audience too.

Chorus: All together! In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.

Michael: I sing so beautiful, I should sing solo!

Jose: Si, "so low" we can't hear you.

Pierre: My voice, may not be so marvelous, but my profile is out of this world.

Fritz: Ja wohl, but the trouble is, it's not far enough out of this world. Isn't that right Herr Schmitt? Oh ho, I see, Schmitt has no hair!

Jose: Mi amigos, stop the clucking. You sound like a bunch of old hens. There's a lot of birds waiting to go on. For instance:

Pierre:The boys in the back are called macaws.

Jose:Because of their caws?

Pierre: No, because they're macaws. And our fine feathered friend is a jolly toucan and toucan sounds better than one toucan can.

Jose: The bird of paradise is an elegant bird. It likes to be seen and it loves to be heard. Most little birdies will fly away, but the Tiki Room birds are here everyday.

Chorus: In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.

Jose: Our show is delightful, we'll hope you'll agree. We hope that fills you with pleasure and glee. Because if we don't make you feel like that, we're gonna wind up on a lady's hat!

Chorus: In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.

Jose: Our magnificent production is yet to come, so strum the guitar and beat the drum. We've been a hit and we know you adore us, so c'mon and join us in another chorus!

Chorus: In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.

Michael:A little softer!

Chorus: All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.

Michael:A little louder!

Chorus: In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon. In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room!
