TRAVELING ANIMANIACS from the Yakko's World album
Music by Richard Stone. Lyrics by Richard Stone and Julie Bernstein.
YW+D : It's time for Animaniacs And we're really making tracks Let's go all around the earth From Alaska down to Perth We're travelin' maniacs Come join us on our journey As we race around the globe You may meet an attorney Or an Eskimo named Joe We'll go to Bora Bora Or maybe Kokomo We promise not to bore ya But of course you never know We're travelin' maniacs From Bombay to Halifax Y+D : Board a bus or take a yak Or just jump on Wakko's back And don't forget the snacks YW+D : From Canada to Paraguay And places in between From India to Mozambique You'll see just what we mean It's fun to visit countries That you have never seen But if you drink the water there You might turn slightly green We're travelin' maniacs With our knapsacks on our backs We'll leave raisins in our tracks From the trail mix in our slacks We're Animanee Totally insane-y Dot : Let's not miss our plane-y YW+D : Animaniacs! Bring your backpacks!Transcribed by David Orozco
A QUAKE! A QUAKE! from the Yakko's World album
Music and lyrics by Randy Rogel.
Music adapted from The Happy Farmer by Robert Schumann.
These lyrics are different than the originals, which appeared later. See them in the listing from Episode 70.
Yakko: It's a quiet, peaceful night The moon is shining bright Giving not a hint of what's in store A few hours before morning Without a single warning Something strange begins to move the floor A quake, a quake The house begins to shake You're bouncing 'cross the floor And watching all your dishes break You're sleeping; there's a quake You're instantly awake You're leaping out of bed And shouting "Oh for heaven's sake!" I ran outside with neighbors Their faces full of shocks That's because I'm standing there In nothing but my socks W+D : Oops! Yakko: A quake, a quake This must be a mistake Just feel the ground Go up and down Won't someone hit the brake? A quake, a quake Oh, what a mess they make The bricks, the walls The chimney falls Destruction in its wake I did not have insurance I called them from the scene And suddenly I'm listening To an answering machine Say "Too late, too late You shouldn't ought to wait 'Cause now you're stuck We wish you luck Here comes a six-point-eight!" Whose fault, whose fault? Blame it on the fault 'Cause Mister Richter Can't predict her Kicking our asphalt Seismologists all say Tectonic plates are in between An encroaching crustal mantle Yeah, so what the heck's that mean? It means a quake, a quake W+D : Oh really, yeah, no fake? We kind of had that feeling When the ground began to shake Yakko: And so we wait Resign ourselves to fate Because our lawn Is sitting on A continental plate We shivered through a blizzard Went swimming in a flood Then we blew off a hurricane And now we hear a thud Of a quake, a quake How much more can we take? We thought that we had seen it all But this one takes the cake The dirt, the rocks Those crazy aftershocks It's just the planet Moving granite Several city blocks *YW+D: Now the town is falling down * While the ground * Moves around * We won't let it get us down * Get beneath the door frame Yakko: A quake, a quake It's time to pull up stake Dot : The worst is over Y+W : We don't buy it We're fed up We can't deny it We just want some peace and quiet YW+D : So we're moving to Beirut! * - sung to "London Bridge"Transcribed by David Orozco
THE HELLO SONG from the Yakko's World album
Music by Julie Bernstein, Peter Hastings and Paul Rugg.
Lyrics by Paul Rugg.
Yakko: There's a word in every language A word that you should know A word that means you're friendly A word used high and low. Though the way to say it varies Most everywhere you go Its meaning never changes And that word is... YW+D : ...Hello! YW+D : Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Yakko: In Germany it's "guten Tag" Which also means "good day" "Ni hao" is exactly how Hello sounds in Taipei. In Portugal it's "ola" In Arabic, "salem" Saying "zravo" means hello In Macedonian. It's "aloha" in Hawaii They say "geia sou" in Greece In Israel the word's "shalom" And that means "peace". The Italians have "buon giorno" The Viennese, "servus" When you're at the Eiffel Tower Just smile and say "salut!" YW+D : Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Yakko: In Nepal they say "namaste" In Sweden, "goddag" In Thailand, "sabai dee roo" "Dobri den" in Prague. In the Spanish language, "hola" The Netherlands, it's "dag" In Japanese, "konnichi-wa" And "hey" in Little Rock. When you say "u hali gani" Swahili is the tongue In Russian it's "zdrahstvooyteh" Which sounds way better sung. If you're ever in Korea "Ahnyung hahsay yo!" And in some parts of Brooklyn Hello is just plain "yo!" Y+W : Hello! Dot : Hello! Y+W : Hello! Dot : Hello... Y+W : Hello! Dot : Hello?? Y+W : Hello! Dot : Hello!! YW+D : Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! YW+D : Though the way to say it varies Most everywhere you go Its meaning never changes Hello! Hello!! Hello!!! G'bye!Transcribed by David Orozco and Andy Diaz
SEVERAL DROPS OF RAIN from the Yakko's World album
Music and lyrics by Randy Rogel.
Y+W: It's raining; It's pouring Don't sing a song that's boring... Dot: There's a plain up in Maine Where there're tiny drops of rain Forming ripples in a puddle that they make. And that puddle grows beyond Into something called a pond Spreading outward 'til it turns into a lake. When that lake springs a leak Then it forms a little creek Which goes rushing down and turns into a stream. And the water keeps on flowing So that trees can keep on growing In a pattern that is showing nature's scheme. And every flower, every weed Get the water that they need From that little tiny stream which trickles by. Y+W: And in the swamp it picks up germs From bacteria and worms And if you drink it you'll get really sick and die. Dot: Hey, this is my song! Dot: The stream joins a river And goes racing to deliver All the water as it rushes to the sea. Then it flows into a bay Where it's quickly swept away To the ocean, filled with motion, swirling free. Then the sun shines on down Putting heat upon the ground And evaporating mist into the air. And the water starts to rise As it lifts into the skies And soon there is rain, on that plain, up in Maine. Y+W: And that rain Is a pain So why don't they build a drain? Dot: For water has position Which is always in transition From the mountains to the oceans to the sky. Y+W: And it's something you can drink Or that you spit into the sink If you control the way it goes You can shoot it out your nose If you try Dot: And now you both can say goodbye! Hyah! [throws something which shatters]Transcribed by David Orozco
I'LL TAKE AN ISLAND from the Yakko's World album
Music by Julie Bernstein. Lyrics by John P. McCann.
Wakko: I'll take an island Staten or Ireland Japan and Cyprus too With water on four sides Not three Like peninsulas do Yeah! I'll take Greenland It's not a mean land It's east of Baffin Bay And Easter Island's Got heads Big as a Circle-K Crete belongs to Greece While Jamaica has Kingston Bay Brando lives in Fiji they say And Cuba's in the water Doing what it oughta Old Indonesia Is bound to please ya Stop by for Java and cream While the Philippines Got islands Coming out of their jeans Take it, boys! Play, magic fingers, play! Ooh, swing it! Let's hear it for the band, folks! All right!

THERE'S ONLY ONE OF YOU from the Yakko's World album
Music and lyrics by Randy Rogel.
Yakko: There are fifty thousand different kinds of animals And there are fifty thousand more that used to be There's a hundred million ants And half a billion plants And a lot of fish down underneath the sea There's gotta be a couple million spiders A hundred-fifty million butterflies and bees And a bunch of different mammals Like those elephants and camels And approximately fifty billion trees Y+W : But there is only one of you That makes you special You stand out among the other things; it's true YW+D : Yes, the universe is large And whoever is in charge Made lots of things, but only one of you Yakko: A one, a two, a three, and a four A thousand and a million and a billion or more There's a trillion drops of water in the ocean And a billion trillion molecules of air There are insects here en masse And a trillion blades of grass And a thousand strands in every head of hair A lot of little grains of dirt make up this planet A billion atoms on the head of every pin A million birds that all can fly A trillion stars up in the sky And all the many different people there have been YW+D : But there is only one of you That makes you special Yes, there is nothing else exactly like you are 'Cause you're unique and you're terrific And you're kind of real specific 'Cause there's no one else the same As the person you became Wakko: In fact, you're kind of weird Yakko: But we like you just the same YW+D : 'Cause you're the only one of you there are Ba ba doop mm Ba ba doop mm Ba ba doo ba!Transcribed by David Orozco

Lyrics from ANIMANIACS GAME PACK!
by William Gusky and Bruce Zimmerman
It's time for Animaniacs We hope your hard drive stays intact If this program starts to crash Give your CPU a whack We're Animaniacs Boot up the Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister, Dot The developers would like to buy a really snazzy yacht They put all kinds of games in here To tie your mind in knots And zany animations That will leave you seeing spots. We're Animaniacs They transformed us to bitmaps If you move your mouse to click on things You'll force us to react We're Animaniacs Look at Wakko as he tries to pull your processor apart ** And Yakko's burning Random Access Memory with a spark ** Dot just grabbed your cursor She wants you to restart We kidnaped all the programmers They think that they're so smart. We're Animaniacs Play at work and you'll get sacked If the artwork is too slack Well, they licensed us to hacks We're Animanie Totally insaney Monitor's in flamey Animaniacs! ** - These lines originally were written as: Look at Yakko as he tries to pull your processor apart And Wakko's burning Random Access Memory with a fart ---I'm a Swingin' Gal
Yakko: Golf? How dull can we get? Dot : Dull? Au contraire! The game of golf is a metaphor for life itself. Each hole represents a challenge; each swing, a defining moment; each-- Yakko: C'mon, Dot. Enough of this psychological mumbo-jumbo. Wakko: Yeah, sing the song already. Dot : I can swing with the swingers And I'm havin' a ball I always go for the green Yeah, I want it all My clothes fit to a tee I'm a swingin' gal, that's me. Y+W : Even though life can be rough Our sister Dot's had the right stuff Never has her head in the sand Dot : Hey, let me tell my story first-hand! I can swing with the swingers And I'm havin' a ball I never putter around Yeah, I want it all I'm as cute as I can be I'm a swingin' gal, that's me. I'm as cute as I can be I'm a swingin' gal, that's me. Wakko: (spoken) Hey, what's a metaphor, anyway? Yakko: I dunno, but I never met a phor I didn't like.Transcribed by Ron O'Dell and Linda Pang
