SpongeBob SquarePants Theme (Song)
|The SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song|
|Sung By:||Painty the Pirate by Patrick Pinney|
The following text is the theme song for SpongeBob SquarePants. It is performed by Painty (voiced by Patrick Pinney) in all episodes. There are versions in many different languages; the lyrics written on this page are of the English version.
(we hear seagulls as Painty appears)
Painty: Are you ready, kids? Kids: Aye-aye, Captain! Painty: I can't hear you! Kids: AYE-AYE, CAPTAIN! Painty: Ooooohh...
Painty: Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
(SpongeBob opens his front door, but he is in his underwear. Hans puts SpongeBob's pants on)
Painty: Absorbent and yellow and porous as he! Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
(SpongeBob falls into a bathtub filled with water. He absorbs the water and sprays it out. Water slides down the screen, wiping out SpongeBob and the tub and revealing the name "SpongeBob SquarePants" made of bubbles (or in most international versions, a single bubble of SpongeBob). The bubbles pop)
Painty: If nautical nonsense be something you wish... Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!
(multiple copies of SpongeBob in boats slide in and offscreen. They pull in ropes with rectangles with segments of the name "SpongeBob SquarePants" on them (SpongeBob's face for most international versions). The rectangles come together to form a big square reading "SpongeBob SquarePants" (see above for the international version) while the ropes come off. The square and background flash colors three times)
Painty: Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish! Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants! Painty: Ready?
(a Realistic Fish Head drops in over a ocean background saying Painty's lines. The name "SpongeBob SquarePants" made of bamboo appears in segments as SpongeBob's name is said)
Painty and the Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants! SpongeBob SquarePants! SpongeBob SquarePants!
(SpongeBob appears in pieces. The pieces form into SpongeBob in incorrect shapes before correctly coming together. SpongeBob falls offscreen)
Painty: SpongeBob... SquarePants!
(as Painty sings the closing line, SpongeBob lands on and jumps over the name "SpongeBob SquarePants" in multicolored capital lettering (in most international versions, SpongeBob and his pants jump over various hills). SpongeBob's pants come off while he is in the air and jump over the rest of the name. When the pants jump off the name, SpongeBob slides in, upside-down. SpongeBob's pants land on him and the camera zooms in; Painty laughs as the title card appears. SpongeBob pops up and plays his nose like a flute. We hear the seagulls heard at the start as "Created by Stephen Hillenburg" appears and the episode starts)
