"Quack Quack" (A.K.A. Captain Feathersword Fell Asleep on his Pirate Ship) is a song about when Captain Feathersword fell asleep on his pirate ship, but woke up to find himself living on a farm with the ducks and roosters in his dream. This song did not get a full music video until Wiggle Time! (1998 video). However a special version was made for The Wiggles Movie.

Captain Feathersword: (after getting his hat and sword back) I feel Quite Quackers after that. Quack, quack, quack.

Anthony: Captain, did you just say "Quack, quack, quack"?

Captain Feathersword: Oh, yes I did say, "Quack, quack, quack."

Anthony: We can say that, too. Let's all try it together! (with crowd of people) "Quack, quack, quack."

Captain Feathersword: Oh, and uh... Cock-a-doodle-doo.

Anthony: We can do that one, too. You ready? (with crowd of people) Cock-a-doodle-doo.

Captain Feathersword: Wow, that's great!

Greg: (arriving while holding duck and rooster hats) Oh-ho! Anthony, I've got some hats here for us to wear. Look at that. There's a rooster hat for you, my friend. (giving rooster hat to Anthony)

Anthony: Oh, looks good. (putting rooster hat on his head)

Greg: Jeff, I've got a duck hat for you (giving duck hat to Jeff and Jeff puts it on his head) and I've got a duck hat myself so I'll just put that on. (starts putting duck hat on his head)

Anthony: (pointing to Murray arriving while wearing a rooster hat) Hey, look at Murray! He looks great!

Murray: Cock - a - Doodle Doo!!

Greg: It's Murray the rooster!

Murray: Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Greg: Well, now we can all quack, quack, quack, and cock-a-doodle-doo together.

Captain Feathersword: Oh yes, indeed. We can do the whole thing. Here we go!

Recording

Quack Quack was the only song that was not re-recorded when Wiggle Time is made. And then, instead of Wiggle Time, it was rehearsed or re-recorded on December 1996 shown on Wiggledance! Live In Concert. Later, after Wiggledance! Live In Concert, it was re-recorded in 1998 for the Wiggle Time (re-recording) video and album and then the Toot Toot! album.

Trivia

  • The Piano & Trumpet Track from the 1996 Concert Version is Reused in the Wiggles Movie Version, Plus with the Lead Vocals performed by the former Yellow Wiggle Greg Page.
  • The song was written in December 1996.
  • The Karaoke Songs 1 shows that John Field's name was in the credits, although he didn't write it.
  • Although Quack Quack has been changed to “Captain Feathersword Fell Asleep on his Pirate Ship” since 1998, the year when the Toot Toot album was released, the former title is still heard during the chorus and is still seen in the regular version of the Wiggle Time! video.
  • Jeff Fatt is not credited for the playing the keyboards for the 1998 version.
  • The 1996 and 1997 Versions play in C whereas the current version since 1998 plays in D
