"Cruella De Vil" is a song featured in the 1961 Disney-produced animated film One Hundred and One Dalmatians and its live-action remake. In the film, it is written by Roger Radcliffe who had just finished the melody for the song and was inspired by Cruella's name to make the song about her.

It was first performed by Bill Lee as the singing voice of Roger Radcliffe, a character from the movie. It has been re-recorded by Dr. John, Lalaine, Hayden Panettiere, and Selena Gomez for various releases in the DisneyMania album series. Additionally, The Mad Hatter sang the song in a game of Musical Chairs at Disneyland but instead changed a number of the "Cruella De Vil's" to "Alice De Vil" to criticize his friend.

"Cruella De Vil" is the only song from the original film to be featured in the Animated Storybook adaptation.

Lyrics Edit

Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil

If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will

To see her is to take a sudden chill

Cruella, Cruella De Vil

The curl of her lips, the ice in her stare

All innocent children had better beware

She's like a spider waiting for the kill

Look out for Cruella De Vil

At first you think Cruella is a devil

But after time has worn away the shock

You come to realize

You've seen her kind of eyes

Watching you from underneath a rock!

This vampire bat, this inhuman beast

She ought to be locked up and never released

The world was such a wholesome place until

Cruella, Cruella De Vil
