Lyrics[]

Yakko:
The Roman world was in a mess
The emperor wore a-
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
Cocktail dress!
Yakko:
When in the year 441 came a guy, Attila the Hun.
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
Run away; here comes Attila
Flee today; he'll sack your villa
Run away; here comes Attila!
He'll swipe your hogs and then your pillo'.
Wakko:
Attila was a nasty king. He and his Huns wrecked everything.
He lived by arson and the sword
Invaded France 'cause he got bored.
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
Run away; here comes Attila
Far away; go to Manila
Run away; here comes Attila
He'll steal your socks and then your pillo'.
Yakko:
I guess he had a thing for pillows!
Dot:
To a wedding Attila went
Looking sharp like a Hunnish gent
He ate a whole ox, then ate two, then passed away, but so would you!
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
Come on back; farewell, Attila!
Ate three ox, and got his fill-a!
He wore shorts made of chinchilla
His favorite ice cream was strawberry.
Yakko:
What can I say? It's not a perfect world.
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
Attila!
Attila!
Attila Gorilla for sale!
