Clark Wayne: Oh, the might Mississippi. It's flowin' strong and wide. Just me and you in an old canoe with a trusty Indian guide.Yeah, my trusty Indian guide

Chato: I prefer the term "Native American".

Clark Wayne: Eh... did you say something?

(music stops)

Head Cheerleader: Ready, okay!

Cheerleaders: Gonna take a trip on the mighty Mississip. Gonna take a tripy on the mighty Mississipi

Clark Wayne: Must be a slumber party.

(music resumes)

Clark Wayner: Gonna take a trip on the mighty Mississip. Gonna take a tripy on the mighty Mississipi (2x) Oh, the mighty Mississippi. It's flowin' strong and wide. Just me and you in an old canoe with a trusty Indian gui-Oh, I'm sorry. With a trusty Native American guide

(Chato beat boxing alongside Clark until he tells him to stop)

Both: Gonna take a trip on the mighty Mississip. Gonna take a tripy on the mighty Mississipi. Gonna take a trip--

Clark Wayne: Not so loud, Chato.
