Disney's Planes - "Franz's Song" Bonus Feature

"Ein Crop Duster Can Race" (aka "Franz's Song") is a song recorded by Dave Wittenberg, used in the Planes soundtrack. It is also an exclusive bonus feature on the film's Blu-ray Disc and Digital HD, as it was deleted from the final film. It is sung by Franz to encourage Dusty Crophopper that even as a crop duster, he can still race.

Lyrics

[Speech]
Klaus, may I have a B-flat, please?
(Brass instruments start to play.)
Yeah, yeah, that's it.

Fritzy ist ein postal truck.
(Postal truck!)
Postal truck!
He brings the mails through mud and muck.
But add a blade and what do you know?
The postal truck can plow the snow!

(Sing ja, ja, ja!)
If a postal truck can plow the snow,
Then a crop duster can race.

Helga is a floating plane.
(Floating plane!)
Floating plane!
She can fly in sun und rain.
But her big pontoons conveniently
Let her float like a boat on the big blue sea.

(Sing ja, ja, ja!)
If a floating plane can float in the sea,
And a postal truck can plow the snow,
Then a crop duster can race.

I am just a teensy car.
(A teensy car!)
A weensy car!
I cannot go fast or far,
But add some wings and who am I?
Von Fliegenhozen in the sky!

(Sing ja, ja, ja!)
If a teensy car can fly in the sky,
And a floating plane can float in the sea,
And a postal truck can plow the snow,
Then a crop duster can race.

And maybe win first place.
Ja!

Trivia

  • The line at the beginning, "Klaus, may I have a B flat, please?" appears to have different recordings on the Planes soundtrack and Blu-ray animation, which some people mistake that Ishani said that on the soundtrack version. Also, the recording seems to sound slower on the soundtrack version.
