Ahab: No more singing; man the harpoon Moby Dick is mine; it's high noon Spear him now; on with the cartoon Early in the morning. Y+W : Stop your whaling; stop your moaning Pun intended; stop that groaning Don't kill whales, and start atoning Early in the morning. YW+D: Watch Star Trek IV or ask your teachers Whales are kind and lovely creatures They've got eyes and facial features Killing whales is stupid.Transcribed by Raymond Hom

Lyrics from PUTTIN' ON THE BLITZ (Episode 31)
Music and lyrics by Nicholas Hollander
Rita: Just look into my eyes Tell me what you see This looks more like Van Nuys Than Burbank to me. Just listen to the call Oh and ain't it sweet No matter how we fall We land on our feet. Oh you and I, we're like a masquerader Who travels incognito with a friend No matter where you go, you'll see me later I know we'll be together in the end. --- Rita: Don't leave it up to fate For the odds are slim Don't gamble with your life You can never win. We'll see her to the train Then we'll leave Warsaw After the child Is reconciled With her papa. --- Rita: You know, I should have my head examined The fact is, I could not go without you I'm fond of your slow wit and your bad hairdo We'll always be together, me and you.Transcribed by Raymond Hom, Ron O'Dell and C. David Tallman
THE PLANETS (Episode 32)
Music arranged by Richard Stone.
Lyrics by Paul Rugg.
Yakko: The closest to the Sun Is the planet Mercury Next the shrouded planet Venus Is as cloudy as can be. The Earth is next; we call it home Let's hope it stays that way And then there's Mars; it's really red What more can I say? The gassy planet Jupiter's As big as planets come Then there's Saturn with its mighty Rings made up of tiny crumbs. We travel on to Neptune That's a gassy, freezing ball And cold and tiny Pluto It's the furthest one of all. Yakko: (spoken) Well, there you go. That's our solar system. Wakko: You forgot Uranus. Yakko: Goodnight, everybody.
