Dances with Gophers – Video & Lyrics to I’m Alright from Caddyshack

dancing gopher from caddyshack. I'm all right by kenny loggins
We can kill all the gophers. We don’t even have to have a reason.

People have been asking about my morning playlist, and Kenny Loggins’ I’m Alright from the  1980 classic Caddyshack is one of the few songs that helps me wake up and feel ready to strap on another day.

As my job and life centers around movies, my playlists tend to reflect the kind of songs that perfectly fit a film scene I recall. (On another note, isn’t it interesting that two of my favorite Bill Murray movies have him battling a rodent? And yes, gophers and groundhogs are both in the family Rodentia.)

With no further idle thoughts, here’s the world’s most famous dancing gopher in his movie debut, followed by the lyrics of this jaunty little tune:

I admit the I love the sound of the water sprinklers sounding like a shaker instrument as the film opens over the quiet morning’s golf fields. That sort of creativity makes me strangely happy.

The Caddyshack lyrics to sing along to:


I’m Alright

(As sang by Kenny Loggins)

I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can’t you just let it be?
I’m alright
Don’t nobody worry ’bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don’t you just let me be
Do what you like,
Doing it nat’rally
But if it’s too easy
They’re gonna disagree
It’s your life
And isn’t it a mystery
If it’s nobody’s bus’ness
It’s everybody’s gameGotta catch you later
No, no, cannonball it right away
Some Cinderella kid
Get it up and get you a job
(Dip dip dip dip dip dip dip dip)I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can’t you just let it be?
I’m alright
Don’t nobody worry ’bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don’t you just let me beWho do you want?
Who you be today?
And who is it really
Makin’ up your mind?You want to listen to the man?
Pay attention to the magistrate
And while I got you in the mood…
Listen to your
Own heart beatin’
Own heart beatin’
Own heart beatin’
Own heart beatin’Don’t it get you movin’
mmmmm-man
It make me feel good
Then give it up and give it the job

I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can’t you just let it be?
I’m alright
Don’t nobody worry ’bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don’t you just let me be
I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can’t you just let it be?
I’m alright
I’m alright
Just let me be…
