What's Up, Duloc?

This song is by Unknown Artist.

Welcome to Duloc, such a perfect town
Here we have some rules, let us lay them down
Don't make waves, stay in line and we'll get along fine
Duloc is a perfect place

Please keep off the grass
Shine your shoes, wipe your face
Duloc is, Duloc is
Duloc is a perfect place

And here's the man who made it happen
That towering colossus of moxie, Lord Farquaad

Oh, it's you, what a terrific surprise

Once upon a time this place was infested
Freaks on every corner, I had them all arrested
Hey, nonny, nonny, nonny, no
If you had a quirk, you didn't pass inspection
We all have our standards but I will have perfection
And so, and so

Things are looking up here in Duloc
Just take a look
The things I'm cooking up here in Duloc
He likes to cook

A model that amazes
A plan with seven phases
Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum

Things are looking up here in Duloc
They're looking up, in Duloc

The ladies all look swell
The men are so dashing
Thanks to my new dress code
The fashion's never classing
Hey, nonny, nonny, nonny, no

This castle I had built
(Farquaad, Farquaad, Farquaad)
Is taller than the cliff-tops
(Farquaad, Farquaad, Farquaad)
A city like a postcard
(Farquaad, Farquaad, Farquaad)
A monorail and gift shops

And so, and so, and so, and so, and so
No one from the gutter in Duloc
He's takin' aim
Embrace the cookie cutter in Duloc
We're all the same
The upshot is enormous when you can shout
Conform us

(Yes, things are)
Things are looking up
(Looking)
Things are looking up, up here in Duloc

Hey, let's hear it for those Duloc dancers
Aren't they terrific?

Yeah, pow, yeah, come on, yeah, oh, boy

There's no sign of slowing
We're growing, we're growing
Look, he's growing and growing and growing
Look at him grow

Things are looking up here
We practiced this part both forward and back
We make one mistake and we get the rack
Things I'm cooking up here
He taught us to dance with razzmatazz
He's trained in ballet, flamenco and jazz

My hard work and my rigor
Have made me so much bigger

Things are looking up
Things are looking up
Things are looking up
Here in Duloc, here in Duloc

Up, up, up, up, up
