Colonel Hathi's March is a song written by the Sherman Brothers for the 1967 Disney film, The Jungle Book.


Mowgli: Look a parade

Bagheera: Oh no it's the Dawn Patrol again.

Spoken: Hup 2, 3, 4

Keep it up 2, 3, 4 [repeat]

Colonel Hathi: Company sound off!

All: Oh, the aim of our patrol

Is a question rather droll

For to march and drill

Over field and hill [all trumpet]

Hathi:Is a military goal!

All:Is a military goal!

Spoken: Hup 2, 3, 4

Dress it up 2, 3, 4

Sung: By the ranks or single file

Over every jungle mile

Oh we stamp and crush

Through the underbrush

Junior.:In a military style!

All:In a military style!

Mowgli spoken: Hallo what are you doing

Hathi Jr spoken: Shh drilling

Mowgli spoken: Can I try that too please

Hathi Jr spoken: Sure just do what I do but don't talk in the ranks please it's against regulations.


Spoken: Hup 2, 3, 4

Keep it up 2, 3, 4

Hup 2, 3, 4

Shere Khan:

What beastly luck confound that ridiculous Colonel Hathi.

Hathi: Company sound off!!

All: Oh we march from here to there

And it doesn't matter where

You can hear us push through the deepest bush

Hup 2, 3, 4

Hathi:We're a military air

All:We're a military air [trumpet]

Bagheera: The jungle patrol

We're a crackerjack brigade

On a pachyderm parade

But we'd rather stroll to a waterhole

Junior: Hup 2, 3, 4


For a furlough in the shade!


For a furlough in the shade!
