Donald's Duck is a song from the fifth series dedicated to Donald and Dilly. It uses some elements of Donald and Douglas' theme.

Lyrics

I found a quacker in my tender.
She was very, very tame,
But she quacked all night and through the day.
She was driving me insane.
My driver and my fireman
tried everything they know
To shoo the quacker away from me,
But she did not want to go.
The quacker clearly loves me
Was impossible to nab.
So now we have befriended her.
She rides inside my cab.
She quacks in stations big and small.
She quacks at people too.
Now, everyone calls her "Donald's duck,"
But I call her my quackeroo!
She makes me so happy
With her little ways.
So happy, it's true.
Now, everyone calls her "Donald's duck,"
But I call her my quackeroo!
Quacking here, quacking there
she is quacking everywhere
Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo,
she's my little quackeroo.
She's quacking here and there
She's quacking everywhere
Quack, quack, shoo, shoo, shoo.
She's my quackeroo!
Now everybody loves her
They love to hear her quack
And when we have to say goodbye
they ask when she'll be back
She's captured everybody's heart
She knows just what to do.
Now, everyone calls her "Donald's duck,"
But she's my quackeroo!
She makes me so happy
With her little ways.
So happy, it's true.
Now, everyone calls her "Donald's duck,"
But I call her my quackeroo!
Quacking here, quacking there
she is quacking everywhere
Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo,
she's my little quackeroo.
She's quacking here and there
She's quacking everywhere
Quack, quack, shoo, shoo, shoo.
She's my quackeroo!
She's my quackeroo!
She's my quackeroo!

Trivia

  • The font of the lyrics and bouncing cloud puff animation is different on the Thomas' Trackside Tunes VHS/DVD.
  • This song was sung as if it was done by Donald himself.
  • This is one of the rare music videos in the model era to feature stop motion animation and live action model footage in the same time. This makes it the first time doing so, this happened again on the sixth season song, Down by the Docks in 2002.
  • The song was based on an original lyric idea by David Mitton.
  • Dilly's quacking sound is different in the Japanese version.
  • A version without lyrics can be seen on the official Thomas and Friends YouTube channel. It was uploaded on 2 April 2015.
  • Michael Angelis provides the voice of Dilly the Duck.

Goofs

  • Mike O'Donnell's last name is misspelled "O'Donnel" on the UK title card.
  • During the head-on shots of Donald with Dilly, the background and the flatbed in front of Donald keep moving due to the stop-motion animation.
