Astronauts Never Give Up (Pablo, Uniqua and Austin)

P & A
: We're stuck...
A
: In a lake in a cavern in a hole in a cave...
P
: On a distant red planet and I'm not feeling brave...
A
: And we lost my pal Rover, that's what bothers me most...
P
: My calculations say...we're pretty much toast
U (speaking)
: You guys, we're astronauts! And astronauts never give up!
Who flew all this way through the darkness of space?
To explore a new planet for the whole human race?

Whoís skill got us out of that meteor shower? Whoís skill was that?
A
: That it have to be ours
U
: Yes, weíve lost touch with mission contro-ol
And yes we're at the bottom of a really deep ho-ole

And yes we don't know how to get back to Rover, but none of that means that the story is over!
Cause astronauts never give up, my friends! Astronauts never give up!
P & A
: Astronauts never give up?
U
: That's right! Astronauts never give up!
We're the bravest, we're the strongest, plus we work the hardest, astronauts never give up!
We took the astronaut pledge, the astronaut oath
P
: Well, which one was it?
U
: Pretty sure it was both
When we took that pledge it said no matter what
You never call it quits when youíre an astronaut!

Cause astronauts never give up, my friends, astronauts never give up! Sing it!
P & A
: Astronauts never give up, no sir! Astronauts never give up!

Lyrics by Adam Peltzman


Pie-ya! [Solo]
(Tyrone)

Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! I make pie like a samurai!
Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! Like a samurai, who makes pies!
Some bakers make pies while they're sitting in a chair
But I tumble and crouch and leap through the air!
Focus is important, patience: a must
Use the freshest fillings and the flakiest crust
I practice my jumps, my turns and my kicks
And I never forget to shout this when I mix...
Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! I make pie like a samurai!
Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! Like a samurai, who makes pies!

Pie-ya! [Duet] (Tyrone and Austin)

T
: Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! I make pie like a samurai!
A
: Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! Like a samurai, who makes pies!
T
: Young Austin, you will learn from a pie making master, nobody makes pies better...
A
: Nobody makes them faster...
T
: I'm stronger than an ox, as graceful as a cat, as I leap and turn...
A
: In your puffy bakers hat!
My one greatest wish is to make pies like you
T
: Then you musn't forget to shout this when you do...
Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! I make pie like a samurai!
Both
: Pie-yaaaaaaaa! Pie-ya! Like a samurai, who makes pies!

Whodunit

Music Style: Django Reinhardt
Music by Doug Wieselman - Underscore by Doug Wieselman
Lyrics by McPaul Smith


Aha!
(Pablo solo)
When something strange happens, and no one knows why
You need a great detective, and Iím that guy
When someone did a crime, but you donít know who
You call a great detective to find out who for you
Who solves the mysteries? Who finds out?
Me, the great detective! And when I do I shout
Aha! When I find a clue
Aha! Thatís just what I do
Aha! Thatís the word I yell
Yes, Iím the great detective, and hereís how you can tell, aha!
Got a mystery on your hands? On your feet or on your head?
Well, donít just stand there, call me instead
With my great detective hat, and my great detective mind,
And my magnifying glass, thereís no answer I canít find
The why, the what, the when, where, who
Iíll answer every riddle, Iíll follow every clue
Aha! Thatís just what Iíll say
Aha! When Iíve saved the day
Aha! In a British voice
You need a great detective, Iím your number one choice
Aha! Aha! Aha! Ahaaaaaaa!

Mysterious, Very Mysterious (Pablo, Tasha and Austin)
T & A: Mysterious, very mysterious...mysterious, very mysterious
Eerie things are happening
P
: This could be quite serious
All
: Mysterious, ever so mysterious
A
: Strange footsteps...
P
: Yes, Iíve noticed them, too
A
: Do they echo in the gloom?
P
: Thatís what they often do
A
: Do they sneak along behind you, but nobody was there?
P
: Exactly, old chap, gave me quite a scare
All
: Mysterious, very mysterious...mysterious, very mysterious
(short music break)
Mysterious, very mysterious...mysterious, very mysterious
T
: Weíve seen a dark figure, a lurking shape
P
: Was the dark figure in a muffler and a cape?
T
: Why yes!
P
: Aha! Iíve seen it lurk as well
T
: But why does it lurk?
P
: Alas, I couldnít tell!
All
: Mysterious, very mysterious...mysterious, very mysterious
(short music break)

Mysterious, very mysterious...mysterious, very mysterious
T: I hope some nasty culprit isnít listening in and hearing us
All
: Mysterious, exceedingly mysterious
P
: Iíll share another detail, mysterious to me
A
: More than what weíve said...
T
: Whatever could it be?
P
: Iíve been detecting, and now I can report
Your butler, my lady, is a very shifty sort!
His behavior is suspicious, duplicitous and more,
I wouldnít be surprised if he was spying at this door!

In the Garden (Pablo and Uniqua)
U
: Those footsteps, I hear them
P
: Theyíre close now, weíre near them
U
: Who made them?
P
: Iím willing to bet itís that villain!
Weíll chase him, weíll trail him, pursue him, and tail him
U
: Heís probably a jewel thief, so probably, theyíll jail him
Both
: That fleeting phantom figure in the garden
That villain creeping secretly along
Heís making phantom footsteps in the garden
Weíll catch him by the time we end this song
P
: This garden is foggy and gloomy and soggy
The perfect location for a villain to escape in
He thinks heíll evade me, he thinks heís outplayed me
Heís sneaky and stealthy, but not mentally healthy
My instinct is brilliant, Iím quick and resilient
The culprit will find heís no match for my super-brainy,
great detective, mystery solving mind!
That fleeting phantom figure in the garden
He thinks he can escape me, but Iím fast
Oh, bad guy making footsteps in the garden...
The great detective collars you at last!

Whodunit? (Pablo and Uniqua)
Both
: Whodunit? Weíre gonna find out, gonna find out what the mysteryís about
Whodunit? Weíll finally see, finally see who the scoundrel could be
U
: Who stole the jewels and snuck away?
P
: The answerís at the end of this passageway
U
: This passageway leading who knows where?
P
: One thing Iím sure of, The villainís in there!
(break)
Both
: Whodunit? Whoís that evil bloke? That evil bloke in a muffler and a cloak?
Whodunit? Whoís the cad? That thieving cad, whoís mysteriously bad
U
: The nasty, muffled bandit whose footsteps loudly tap,
Heís in this secret hallway, weíve almost got him trapped
P
: The nasty bandit, the one who likes to lurk
Who took up stealing instead of honest work!
U
: First, the footsteps and the figure in the night
Then the lights went out, and the jewelry got swiped!
P
: And the chase through the garden and the door in the wall
Now weíre apprehending the one who done it all!
Both
: Whodunit? Weíre gonna reveal, gonna reveal who likes to steal!
Whodunit? Weíll wonder no more! ĎCause the evil one who done it is right behind this door!

Scared of You [Solo] (Tyrone)

I start to shake and want to say: ďNo oneís home, so go away!Ē
Please donít take it personally, but I am scared of you! Iím really scared of you!
Iím not just scared of you, Iím scared of everything else, too
Spiders fill me up with fright and gophers keep me up at night
So please donít take it personally, but I am scared of you! Iím really scared of you!
Monsters make me quake with fear and I think thereís a monster here
A monster shadow on the wall and a monster face- Ahh! In the hall

But when you flap around and shriek, I cannot even take a peek
Please donít take it personally, but I am scared of you! Iím really scared of you!
(short dialogue break)

The Secret of Snow

Music Style: Dixieland
Music by Doug Wieselman - Underscore by Doug Wieselman
Lyrics by Jonny Belt and McPaul Smith


I Love Snow [Solo]
(Uniqua) (Tune: "Jingle Bells")

I love snow, I love snow, falling from the sky
Love to see a blizzard piling white stuff very high
Oh, I love snow, I love snow, nothing's quite as nice
Snow forts, snowmen, snow angels and snow cats and snow mice
One thing that Iíd love, one thing I'd like to know
Whatís the secret recipe for starting up the snow, snow, snow, snow!
Not sure how itís done, on that Iím not quite clear
But if I could just find out how, Iíd make it snow all year!
Oh, I love snow, I love snow, piled up cold and sweet
Get that snowplow started up and roaring down the street
Oh, I love snow, I love snow, why canít it snow now?!
Sure would love to make it snow, I just donít quite know how!

The Ice Lady's Anthem (Tasha and Austin) (Tune: "Good King Wenceslas")
T
: When the world is bright and warm, I donít find it pleasing
Thatís why I wonít stop until everything is freezing
You can call me Icy Lady, if you say it nicely
Just one thing Iím here to do: make the planet i-cy!
To make the world nice, fill it up with ice! To make the world nice, fill it up with ice!
Freeze the ponds and freeze the streams, freeze the lakes and rivers
Freeze the farms and freeze the towns
A
: Till everyone shivers
T
: Oceans that were watery, now are frozen rigid
Winter isnít winter Ďtill everything is fri-i-gid!
A
: Sure the cold is good, sure the winterís nice
But maybe we should have a change of pace from the ice
Maybe something softer, maybe something whiter
Something thatís as cold as ice but falls a little lighterÖ
T (speaking): Like what?! Get back to work!
Make the cubes and make them fast, or else Iíll get cranky
I gave you this crucial job, you donít have to thank me
Ice cubes, ice cubes, all day long, cold and hard and tinkly
Speed it up or youíll be here Ďtill youíre old and wri-ink-ly!
To make the world nice, fill it up with ice! To make the world nice, fill it up with ice!

Youíll Love Snow [Duet] (Uniqua and Pablo) (Tune: "Jingle Bells")
U
: Come on, cowboy guy, join me on my quest
P
: Heading north sounds good, Iím tired of the west, hey, hey, hey!
U
: Itís a long, long way, but if we move real fast
P
: Iíll get to make a snowman and Iíll eat snowcones at last!
U
: Oh, youíll love snow, youíll love snow, itís the best of all
Come with me and weíll head north and get that snow to fall
Oh, youíll love snow, youíll love snow...

Youíll Love Snow [Trio] (Uniqua, Pablo and Tyrone) (Tune: "Jingle Bells")
U
: Come on, jungle dude, join us on our trip
T
: Jungle lifeís too hot, the snow sounds pretty hip, hip, hip, hip!
P
: Weíve got far to go, but if we really run
T
: We can do some sledding and catch snowflakes on our tongue!
U
: Oh, youíll love snow, youíll love snow
P
: Nothingís quite as great
U
: Letís go way up north and then make it precipitate
Oh, youíll love snow, youíll love snow...

(to "Deck the Halls")
All
: Make the ice all frozen chilly, fa la la la la la la la la!
Make the ice bizarre and silly, fa la la la la la la la la!
Icy shapes all strange and funky, fa la la la la la la la la!
This one looks just like a monkey, fa la la la la la la la la!
(to "Good King Wenceslas")
Ta
: Hey, theyíre having fun in there, what the heckís the matter?
I donít like to see them smile or hear their happy patter
They think itís some kind of game, goofing off and clowning
Now Iím turning up the speed, that will get them fr-ow-ning!
To make the world nice, fill it up with ice! To make the world nice, fill it up with ice!
To make the world nice, fill it up with ice!
(to "Deck the Halls")
U
: Now the ice is moving faster
All
: Fa la la la la la la la la!
P
: Itís a challenge we can master
Fa la la la la la la la la!
A
: Once this job was so annoying
All
: Fa la la la la la la la la!
A
: Now itís something Iím enjoying
All
: Fa la la la la la la la la!
(tempo increases) (to "Good King Wenceslas")
Ta
: To make the world nice, fill it up with ice! To make the world nice, fill it up with ice!
Make more cubes and make more cubes, make them by the million!
You canít stop until youíve made fifteen hundred zillion!
Make more ice and make more ice, freeze the whole darn planet!
You canít stop until I say: ďThatís it! Time to ca-an it!Ē
To make the world nice, fill it up with ice! To make the world nice, fill it up with ice!

CHORUS
I never fail to deliver the mail, I never fail to deliver the mail

When you need to send a letter, or send a card or even better
A birthday gift to show you ca-are, Iím the guy who gets it there!
(repeat CHORUS)
Not rain or snow or gloom of ni-ight, mosquito bites or a busted light
Nor smelly smells or scary sounds will keep me from my postal rounds
An envelope or package, a parcel or a box, or a 53-pound bag of dirt and bricks and rocks
The size, it doesn't matter, the weight, I just donít care
As long as thereís a postage stamp, the mailman gets it there!

We Donít Horse Around (Tyrone solo) (Tune: "The Man on the Flying Trapeze")
Weíre racing against the best of the best
The riders to beat from the east or the west
They have fast horses who pass every test
Those riders should easily win
Me and Molasses, weíre not as quick
But weíll make our way up to the top
Weíll never get cocky or quit working hard
And youíll never see us stop
Oh, we donít lollygag and we donít horse around
I donít want to brag but weíre gaining some ground
My burroís the best gal that Iíve ever found
We both just keep going along
We are approaching the finish line
Weíve a run a good race, my dear friend
Weíll never give up or put our heads down
Weíll race all the way to the end
Oh, we donít lollygag and we donít horse around
I donít want to brag but weíre gaining some ground
My burroís the best gal that Iíve ever found
We both just keep going along

Iím Sinbad the sailor, I sail the seas alone

Blow ye wind, blow...Iím Sinbad...the sailor!

Do it myself, I can do it myself, itís a one-man ship and a one-man show
Do it myself, I can do it myself, the rainbow is calling and itís time to go!

International Super Spy

Music Style: Spy Film Jazz
Music by Evan Lurie - Underscore by Steven Bernstein
Lyrics by Robert Scull

International Super Spy (Pablo solo)
They call me Secret, Agent Secret, and I like my beverages shaken
Think my job is easy? Well, then you would be mista-aken
I'll go anywhere around the globe and sneak in undetected
There's one thing you can expect from me and that's the unexpected
'Cause I'm an International Super Spy...SUPER SPY...super spy...
Evil's met its match, I'll tell you why, I'm an International SUPER SPY!
I'm an International Super Spy...SUPER SPY...super spy...
When there's trouble up ahead, I'm your guy, I'm an International...SUPER SPY!

Lady in Pink (Uniqua, Tyrone and guest star Cyndi Lauper)
CL: Who's the girl who's got bad on her mind? Who thinks evil thoughts with a smile and a wink?
Who's the girl with a plan to mess up mankind?
U
: Me! I'm the Lady in Pink!
All
: Lady in Pink...Lady in Pink...
T
: She's bad, she's evil
U
: And I'm worse than you think...me! I'm the Lady in Pink!
CL
: Who's the girl who never plays nice and wishes that all rubber duckies would sink?
Who interrupts people and never thinks twice?
U
: Me! I'm the Lady in Pink!
CL & T
: Lady in Pink...Lady in Pink...
T
: She does terrible things
U
: Even worse than you think...I'm the Lady in Pink!
T
: She's selfish, she's cruel
U
: And I totally rule
CL
: She'll stop at nothing to win, she cheats and she lies
U
: I don't even like pie
CL
: When there's bad to be done, count her in!
U
: Those containers, you'd better forget 'em, they'll be mine before you can blink
T
: Wherever they are, you can bet who'll get 'em
U
: Me! I'm the Lady in Pink!
All
: Lady in Pink...Lady in Pink...
T
: Is she totally evil?
U
: Now what do you think?
All
: Lady in Pink...Lady in Pink...
U
: Me, me, me, me, me! I'm the Lady in Pink!

Good and Bad Don't Mix [Part I] (Pablo, Uniqua and Tyrone)
U
: Thought I'd take this container from you, nothing personal, just what I do
P
: I don't think so, but you're welcome to try, I have a job to do, I'm a super spy
It's good to be good!
U
: Agent Secret, that's where you're wrong, it's good to be bad as you'll see in this song
I'm bad, it's good, it's so very me, give me a moment, I'm sure you'll agree
It's good to be bad!
All
: Good and bad don't mix, they're opposites that don't attract, good and bad don't mix...
T
: Not just a theory, it's a fact
P
: Got a mission, I really can't stay, your intentions are bad, get out of my way
It's gooder to be good!
U
: Spare me the goodness, I can do without it, try it my way, just think about it
It's badder to be bad!
(speaking) P
: Evildoer...
U
: Good guy...
All
: Good and bad don't mix...
P & U
: I don't like you, you don't like me
All
: Good and bad don't mix...
P & U
: Let's just agree to disagree
Yes, we're different, it's a no-brainer, we both want to get the secret container
I'm gonna try as hard as I can...
(speaking) P
: ...until I save the world!
U
: ...or I've finished my plan!
All
: Good and bad don't mix...
T
: They're very different points of view
All
: Good and bad don't mix...
P & U
: You don't like me and I don't like you
U & T

Good and Bad Don't Mix [Part II] (Pablo, Uniqua and Tyrone)
P
: Excuse me, lady, I have to request, hand it over to me, it would be for the best
It's gooder to be good!
U
: Agent Secret, don't think that I can, gonna keep this thing, it's part of my plan
It's better to be bad!
All
: Good and bad don't mix, they're very different points of view, good and bad don't mix...
P & U
: You don't like me, I don't like you!

Good and Bad Don't Mix [Part III] (Pablo, Uniqua and Tyrone)
P
: You don't give up, keep trying forever, too bad that you're evil, you're so very clever
It's gooder to be good!
U
: Agent Secret, sorry you feel that way, if you were evil like me, I'm sure you would say:
It's better to be bad!
All
: Good and bad don't mix, it's a bummer, but it's true, good and bad don't mix...
P & U
: You never see things the way I do!

A Recipe for Disaster (Uniqua and Tyrone)
Both
: A recipe for disaster
U
: I'm putting it together, one, two, three
Both
: A recipe for disaster
U
: A disaster brought to you by me!
And now the moment of truth has arrived, let's open container number one
I can't wait to find out what's hidden inside, oh my gosh, this is gonna be fun!
P (speaking)
: It's a glass?
Both
: It's a glass, a glass, what could it be for?
U
: It's gonna be good, I mean bad
A beautiful glass and it's mine, all mine, no wonder the good guys look sad
A recipe for disaster, I'm putting it together, one, two, three
A recipe for disaster, a disaster brought to you by me!
Both
: Let's take a look in the second container and find out what else we can find
U
: What can it be that goes into a glass? I'm so happy I'm losing my mind!
Ta (speaking)
: Milk?
U
: It's milk, it's milk, why of course it is, I can fill up the glass with the stuff
Lovely, white milk and it's mine, all mine, but two out of three's not enough!
Both
: A recipe for disaster
U
: I'm putting it together, one, two, three
Both
: A recipe for disaster
U
: A disaster brought to you by me!
Here in my hand is the final container, what's inside? What could it be?
Something to add to a glass of milk, let's see what's in number three...
(song ends abruptly when doorbell rings)

P: Now the world is safe from danger and everything's okay
The world's most evildoer may have learned something today-ay-ay

Catch That Butterfly

Music Style: Rossini (Comic Opera)
Music by Evan Lurie and Doug Wieselman - Underscore by Doug Wieselman
Lyrics by McPaul Smith

The Gilded Golden Butterfly (Pablo solo)
(speaking) I travel the world, looking for rare insects
But there is one bug I have never seen...it's called the Gilded Golden Butterfly
I have to find that butterfly...why yes indeed, old chap it's true, entomology's what I do
That fancy word's a fancy way to say I study bugs all day
I only stop when I'm asleep and even in my dreams they creep
For I just love those bugs, old bean, there's hardly one I haven't seen
But I've never seen the Gilded Golden Butterfly, I hope one day to see one flutter by
Never seen the Gilded Golden Butterfly...I hope some day I shall
(tempo increases slightly)
Rhino beetles, roaches, fleas, wasps and gnats and strange rare bees
Termites who can eat whole trees, I've studied every single one of these
I've been to Madagascar, I've been to Kathmandu
Just to inspect a rare insect, I've been to Cleveland, too
(tempo decreases slightly)
I've seen bugs in places not on any map, I've met more of them then any other chap
But I have never seen the Gilded Golden Butterfly, I hope one day to see one flutter by
Never seen the Gilded Golden Butterfly...I hope some day I shall

We're Tough (all 3)

U
: No, we're not the only ones, but yup, we are the best
T
: Faster then the desert wind, we'll get you there and back
U
: And when we hit the dusty trail the dusty trail hits back
T
: In other words we're tellin' you this road gets kinda rough
But that don't bother us at all, we're...
T & U
: Tough, tough, tough! Yee-haw! Yee-haw! We're tough, tough, tough!
P
: Pursuit of winged insects, it's harder then you guess
It leads upon occasion to some unpleasantness
T
: Well, we're not scared of nothing cause we're not scaredy guys
U
: Especially not chasin' down...some dinky butterflies!
T
: We've chased down big grizzly bears, rattlesnakes and stuff
U
: Butterflies ain't nothin' when you're...
T & U
: Tough, tough, tough! Yee-haw! Yee-haw! We're tough, tough, tough!
Yee-haw! Yee-haw! We're tough, tough, tough!
T: Our horses are strong, our reins are good and long
U

T

U
: And if that ain't enough, did I mention that we're tough?
T & U
: Yee-haw! Yee-haw! We're tough, tough, tough!
Yee-haw!
Yee-haw! We're tough, tough, tough!

How Hard can it Be? (all 3)
U & T
: How hard can it be?
U
: To help this old professor guy?
U & T: How hard can it be?
T: To catch this doggone butterfly?
U: Our stagecoach went and lost it wheels and that's a big annoyance
T
: We're kinda lucky even though at least it's got some buoyance
U & T: How hard can it be? How hard can it be?
(break)
U & T: How hard can it be?
U: To keep this coach from cracking up?
U & T: How hard can it be?
T: Our bad luck sure is stacking up
U
: Now our stagecoach ain't so snug, it hasn't got a top
T
: Plus we're still-a-floating here and don't know how to stop
U & T: So, how hard can it be? How hard can it be?
(break)
U
: Every time we think it's bad it just gets even worse
T
: Maybe we should stop this song?
U
: Lets do just one more verse!
U & T: How hard can it be?
T: To get this dopey insect caught?
U & T: How hard can it be?
U: A whole lot harder then we thought
T
: We've hardly got a coach at all, we're looking pretty sorry
P

U
: Can things get any worse then this?
T
: I just can't figure how, so if we want to save our skins, we better do it now
U & T: How hard can it be? How hard can it be?
T
: Harder then we thought it was
U
: Man, you're tellin' me!

The Butterfly Hunt (all 3) (Tune: "The Barber of Seville" Overture)
P
: I've got you! I've got you! I've-got-you...
We almost had it, almost caught it, we almost netted that beautiful butterfly
But then it fluttered away in the desert sky and now I'm just so disappointed I could cry
T & U
: 'Cause we have been chasing that butterfly all up and down
Below and high, dee-di-dee-di-dee-di-dee-di!
P
: All through the desert, through the desert, all through the canyons and rivers, we searchify
Beautiful butterfly, magical butterfly, but now you're gone
And I'm a really, really, really, really disappointed guy
T & U
: Disappointed guy...
P
: Yes, I am a disappointed, disappointed gu-uy
T & U: Disappointed guy...
P: Yes, because I really want to catch the butterfl-y
T & U
: As for us, we're just feeling sore
U
: And we don't wanna follow butterflies any more
T
: Sore, yes we're sore and our stagecoach has been demolished
U
: Sore, yes we're sore, I wish bug hunting was abolished
P
: Wait! Wait! Look! Oh, I see something flying over there now
U
: Where?
T
: There!
P
: Yes! Oh, I see golden wings up in the air now
U
: Go!
All
: Go! Go!
U
: Oh, yes I love that pesky little critter
P
: Butterfly, this isn't over yet cause I can see you and I bet
That I will catch you with my net, you're sure the thing I've come to get!

A Giant Problem

Music Style: 80's Synth-Pop
Music by Evan Lurie and Doug Wieselman - Underscore by Doug Wieselman
Lyrics by Adam Peltzman

Nobody's Bigger Than a Giant (Tasha solo)
Nobody's bigger than a giant, nobody's quite as large as me
Nobody's bigger than a giant, I'm humongous, wouldn't you agree?
I'm large, I'm huge, enormous, tall, and grand
I could pick up your whole house and hold it in my hand
I'm wider then a valley and taller then a tower
I can lift an apple tree and sniff it like a flower
I'm vast, immense, hefty and gigantic
I'm bigger then the oceans, Pacific and Atlantic
My hands can reach the planets, my nose can sniff a cloud
And when I stomp my giant feet the sound is really loud
Cause nobody's bigger than a giant, nobody's quite as large as me
Nobody's bigger than a giant, I'm humongous, wouldn't you agree?
I'm humongous, wouldn't you agree?

Nobody's Bigger Than a Giant [Part II] (Tasha solo)
Nobody's bigger than a giant, nobody's quite as large as me
Nobody's bigger than a giant, I'm humongous, wouldn't you agree?
I'm large, I'm huge, spacious and colossal
I could pick up a dump truck and park it in my nostril
I'm roomy as a stadium, more sprawling then a city
Next to me a skyscraper appears quite itty-bitty
I'm vast, immense, ample and inflated
I could cover up the sun and keep the whole world shaded
And if you care to meet me you'll like me from the start
Cause nothing on me's larger then my big ol' giant heart
Nobody's bigger than a giant, nobody's quite as large as me
Nobody's bigger than a giant, I'm humongous, wouldn't you agree?
I'm humongous, wouldn't you agree?

W-I-O-WA (Corniest Station in the Nation) (Uniqua solo)
I'm an ace reporter wherever news is breakin', I show up and find out what's shakin'
I'm an ace reporter, if it weren't for me, there'd never be news on your TV
I bring the big story, I'm proud to say, to the viewers watching everyday...
On W-I-O-WA: Corniest station in the nation! W-I-O-WA: Corniest station in the nation!
Reporters are brave, reporters are proud, reporters like to talk real fast and loud
With my microphone and my camera operator, I say "Back to you" instead of "See ya later"
I go find the news no matter the place and make that serious reporter face...
On W-I-O-WA: Corniest station in the nation! W-I-O-WA: Corniest station in the nation!
W-I-O-WA...
