Cruella De Vil is a song sung by Roger Radcliffe about the titular villain Cruella De Vil in Disney's 1961 animated film One Hundred and One Dalmatians. It features Roger mocking Cruella and describing how evil she is. The song was performed by Roger's voice actor, the late Bill Lee.

In 1996, Disney remade 101 Dalmatians as a live-action film with Glenn close as Cruella De Vil. The song was performed by singer Dr. John during the credits.

In 2000, 102 Dalmatians, the sequel to the 1996 film, was released and featured a new version by Camara Kambon.

LyricsEdit

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
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

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've 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

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, 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've come to realize
You've seen her kind of eyes
Watching you from under a rock

This vampire bat, this inhuman beast
She ought to be locked up and never released
This world was such a wholesome place until
Cruella, De Vil

[So evil even her hair's two-faced]

[Ain't nothing you've ever seen, she's the dean of mean]

[I need to mention she's got some doggone bad intentions]

[I mean let's face it, a person like her could really ruin your whole day]

Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil
Just hearing her name used to make you feel ill
Now suddenly she's drippin' with good will
Can this be Cruella De Vil?

A heartwarmin' laugh, instead of a scream
She's practically human or so it would seem
As playful as a puppy in the snow
That's not the Cruella we know

Oh, remember when she lived just to be rotten
How she loved to frighten the little tots
Who thought she could be kind,
Respectful and refined
Has the lady really changed her spots?

She gave up her bark but will she still bite
What's wrong with this picture? It doesn't look right
Unfortunately only time will tell
If Cruella, I mean, Ella
Is from heaven or hell
Ooh yeah

Oooh, ooh oh oh, oooh oh
Look out for Cruella De Vil

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

Cruella, Cruella De Vil
If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
To see her is to take a sudden chill
Cruella De Vil
Oooh, ooh oh oh, oooh oh

This vampire bat, this inhuman beast
She 'outta be locked up and never released
This world was such a wholesome place until
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
Yeah!

Cruella, Cruella De Vil
If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
To see her is to take a sudden chill
Cruella De Vil

Oooh, ooh oh oh, oooh oh
(Oooh oh, oooh oh oooh oh oooh oh)

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!

Cruella, Cruella De Vil
If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
To see her is to take a sudden chill
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
To see her is to take a sudden chill
Cruella De Vil

Oooh, ooh oh oh, oooh oh
(Cruella De Vil!)
Oooh, ooh oh oh, oooh oh
(Cruella De Vil!)
Oooh, ooh oh oh, oooh oh
Look out for Cruella De Vil
