Way Out West

Way Out West is a song from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, sung by mice on the train headed from New York to Green River. The song is about how much better things will be in the West than they were in New York. It can be seen as the sequel's equivalent to There Are No Cats In America.

Lyrics

Opera Mouse: Life in New York City

Is full of dread and fuss

Our dreams are waiting way out west

There's room for all of us

Mr. Whiskers: The streets are paved with nuggets

All of the purest gold

And soon we'll all be millionaires

Male Mouse: Boy, have I been told

New Yorker Mouse: No garbage and no landlords

Fouling up the air

Opera Mouse: No crooks or politicians

To strip our cupboards bare

Educated Mouse: We'll ride the roaring rivers

Turn wilderness to towns

Our dreams will take us up and up

And never let us down, oh

ALL: Way out west

There's room for our dreaming

There's wide open spaces to see

Way out west

The sun's always beaming

We'll be everything we can be

Mouse With Accent: The nights are filled with dancing

Lasting till the day

Days are filled with singing

Work is just like play

Goofy Mouse: We'll banjo!

Goofy Mouse 2: We'll fiddle!

Goofy Mouse 3: We'll guitar!

Deep-Voiced Mouse: We'll spoon!

ALL: And everywhere we go, we're gonna play this rousing tune!

'Cause way out west

We'll build our new nation

We'll grow all the way to the sky

Way out west

There's all of creation

We're new and we'll never say die

Way out west

We'll build our new nation

We'll grow all the way to the sky

Way out west

There's all of creation

We're new and we'll never say die
