U.N. ME (Episode 72)
Music traditional (Down by the Riverside). Lyrics by John P. McCann.
Yakko: U.N. me, we had a bag of fun Down by the East Riverside That United Nations there Drives away a fella's care 183 countries meet Down by the East Riverside New York, off 42nd Street. Wakko: See foreign states with a grudge Down by the East Riverside United Nations tries to fix Wars, famine, and oil slicks Boutros Boutros Ghali-gee Down by the East Riverside Leads the General Assembly. Dot : The gift shop will take traveler's checks Down by the East Riverside German tourists were not rare Buying T-shirts and flatware Ate pastry from Liberia Down by the East Riverside At the U.N. cafeteria. YW+D : Took a tour with some Dutch Down by the East Riverside We had a guide from Japan Who had a decent pension plan Saw costly artwork from Brazil Down by the East Riverside On which my soda I did spill. U.N. me, we had a bag of fun Down by the East Riverside Saw flags on shiny poles From lands with lofty goals We'll beat our swords into liverwurst Down by the East Riverside But no one wants to be the first YW+D : But then I guess it could be worse Wakko: We could still sing one more verse YW+D : U.N. me!Transcribed by David Orozco

Running From Our Fans (parody of A Hard Day's Night)
Music by Peter Hastings, arranged by Julie Bernstein.
YW+D : You can see that we're black and white And we are running from our fans Riding on invisible bikes And walking on our hands And everywhere that we go We get no peace, don't you know That's why we're running from our fans. In cartoons Everything's crazy and wild In cartoons We are corrupting your child! You see we're doing wacky gags While we are running from our fans We're hiding behind mags And we run inside garbage cans We always get this attention At a cartoon convention So we're running from our fans Yes, we're running from our fans! ---They Want To Laugh (parody of Can't Buy Me Love)
YW+D : They want to laugh, laugh They want to laugh, laugh They want to laugh, laugh, laugh! Yakko: You say you're gonna make a feature film With animation really fine Dot : You say it's gonna be a preachy film With a heartfelt storyline Yakko: Just make sure that it's good and funny Wakko: 'Cause things ought to make you laugh! YW+D : They want to laugh, laugh They want to laugh, laugh They want to laugh, laugh, laugh!
THE TIGER PRINCE (Episode 74)
Music and lyrics by Peter Hastings
Parody of The Circle of Life from The Lion King)
(intro) Ahhh la wain-ya! Ee-malla ee ya away! (chant) Oom balla ee a walla ling goo Ee oola coola yalla din doo Oo day loo ee-a totta malla I know eets joost a lota walla (melody) Ever since we could think for ourselves We've wondered what will happen to us But it can't be foretold What the future will hold If you'll get rich Or get hit by a bus. The surprises in life Keep us on our toes Like a sock in the jaw Like a punch in the nose They keep us guessing They mix it up The surprises The surprises in life. (Yakko drops The Tiger Prince from Proud Slab) Yakko: Ooh... I thought they were supposed to land on their feet.Lyrics provided by the author

THE KID IN THE LID (Episode 74)
Musical score by Steve Bernstein.
Words by Paul Rugg and Tom Ruegger.
Boy : It was hotter than blazes About a hundred and ten So we stayed in the house In the air conditionin'. We just hung around My sister and me And watched countless hours Of daytime TV. Too hot to go out We'd melt in the sun So we stared at the tube Which isn't much fun. All we could do was watch, watch Watch, watch 'Til I spilled lots of soda All over my crotch. Then we heard a kaboom That kaboom shook the room We turned And into our house something slid. A strange-looking fellow The Kid in the Lid And he said to us Yakko: "Oops. Now look what I did. "Now, we all know it's hot And you don't have a pool But there are lots of fun things We can do that are cool. "The first silly thing we can do..." Boy : Said the kid Yakko: "...is play with some glue!" Boy : Said the kid in the lid. Yakko: "Lots of wet glue We'll make a big mess We'll glue things together Your parents will stress." Boy : But our parents were out They were gone for a week To be truthful They'd been gone for a 90-day streak. The last that we heard They were in the Bahamas Leaving us here To face childhood traumas. As for playing with glue My sis said Girl : "Let's do it!" Boy : "Kids need to have fun" I shouted, "Let's glue it!" But our pet woodchuck said CWood: "No, that kid has to leave Open the door And give him the heave. "He doesn't seem normal He doesn't seem well Besides that, his pants Have a real funny smell." Yakko: "Hey, woodchuck, calm down Just relax" Boy : said the kid Yakko: "It's you who smells bad" Boy : Said the kid in the lid. Yakko: "I bet you've not washed In at least seven months So I strongly suggest That we bathe you at once. "In the tub..." Boy : said the kid Yakko: "...goes the smelly woodchuck Use lots of shampoo To cut through all the muck." CWood: "No, stop!" Boy : yelled our woodchuck CWood: "Get me out of this tub!" Boy : As the water got deeper The woodchuck went CWood: "Blub!" Yakko: "It's OK" Boy : said the kid Yakko: "I won't let you drown I'll pull on this chain So the water goes down. "And the woodchuck goes too And he goes down the drain And comes out the potty In considerable pain." Boy : Then the toilet exploded A messy disaster The water rose up And wrecked all the plaster. It surged down the hallway And flooded the den It filled up the kitchen And bedrooms and then... It splashed out the door And into the street Where it provided relief From the afternoon heat. Kids came from all over To splash in the lake Not knowing the source Was our potty break. Girl : "They're swimming in water Straight out of our toilet!" Boy : "Think we should tell 'em?" Yakko: "Nah! That'd just spoil it!" CWood: "Ooh! You're going to get it!" Boy : Said our woodchuck, upset CWood: "You ruined our house And got everything wet! "I think you're insane You're rude and you're naughty To make matters worse I'm stuck in this potty!" Yakko: "Perhaps you should nap You need sleep" Boy : said the kid Then all of us watched As that kid closed the lid. Then he went running off And in less than an hour The kid had come back With a small water tower. Yakko: "I've returned" Boy : said the kid Yakko: "I've returned with this tower It would have been sooner But I needed a shower." Boy : He opened the top And shouted Yakko: "Let's play!" Boy : Then out sprang two kids Who responded W+D : "OK!" Yakko: "These two are my sibs They're fun; wait and see May I proudly present Kid Two and Kid Three?" Boy : They gave us a kiss Then said W+D : "Helloooo, nurse!" Boy : "The first kid was trouble But these two seem worse!" "Hi! How're you doing? That's Mary; I'm Scooter" Kid Two looked at Mary Then whispered Dot : "I'm cuter." Boy : Then they ran all around Doing impossible feats Acting like kids Who've had too many sweets. Kid Three said Wakko: "I'm hungry" Boy : His eyes started twitchin' He shot out the room And ran into the kitchen. He opened the cupboards And then started chewing On cans of tomatoes And carrots for stewing. He gulped down the flour Some dry macaroni Three bottles of ketchup And then Rice-A-Roni! Dot : "The San Francisco Treat!" Boy : He ate all the dishes But didn't stop there He swallowed the sink Then our new Frigidare. Wakko: "Ahh! Hey, that was delicious Thanks for the snacks I'm hypoglycaemic I get munchie attacks." Boy : Then we heard a loud blast And ran out the door Those three crazy kids Were now playing war! Girl : "Oh no! You must stop this!" Boy : Said Sis to Kid Two Girl : "It's this sort of playing You just must not do!" Dot : "I'm sorry; we can't It's too late; we've begun We always play war Until somebody's won." Boy : Then the walls started cracking And the ceiling gave in We ran out the door As the whole house caved in. Then, oh! what bad timing For, right then and there Our parents returned So we said a quick prayer. B+G : "Don't let them be angry" Boy : We said it again B+G : "Don't let them be angry Oh, please, please! Amen." Boy : Our parents were dazed They stood there dumbfounded As they looked at the damage We knew we'd be grounded. Yakko: "Well, that was some fun But enough for one day Give us a call And we'll come back to play." (YW+D leave for a moment and kids begin to cry.) Wakko: "Ha ha ha! We got ya!" Dot : "Yeah. We were just kiddin'." Yakko: "We'll rebuild your house And then paint it with Glidden." Dot : "The San Francisco Treat!" Boy : And that's what they did And in less than a jiffy The house was rebuilt And it looked really spiffy. That night, we ate well It had been quite a day But now life was happy It was all A-OK. CWood: "Hello? Hello??? Anyone? Anybody? Can anyone hear me? I'm still in the potty!"
