Lyrics[]

Yakko Warner:
You know, if she keeps on being pushy
She'll be thrown out on her tushie
Wakko Warner:
All she needs is his affection
Yakko:
What he needs is police protection
For a beast, he is the very, very best
Yakko and Wakko:
But she's a pest, she a pest, she's a pest!
Yakko:
While she may have been forward
Wakko:
Acting out of her gourd
Yakko:
We simply must insist, you did more than just resist!
Wakko:
You threw her out!
Yakko:
What a lout!
Dot Warner:
To say the least, you were a beast!
Wakko:
How you acted was a crime
Now I'm afraid
Yakko and Wakko:
It's pay-back time!
Yakko:
We will slide
Wakko:
We will hide
Yakko:
We'll do things you can't abide
Wakko:
And we'll do all kinds of tricks just for kicks!
Yakko:
Your troubles, we're enjoying!
Wakko:
And we're so annoying!
Yakko and Wakko:
We are pests, we are pests, we are pests!
Yakko:
If your host throws you out
There's no need for you to pout
And should they change all the locks
Just come back with a big gift box!

[Taz opens a package to see a bomb.]

Taz: [screams]

[It explodes, leaving the door open for the Warners.]

Yakko: Uuuuuuuh, you're Taz, aren't you?

Taz: Uuh... me no Taz.

Wakko: Could you do that thing, that funny thing that you do?

Taz: BLOOUUAAAAGH!

Wakko: No, that's not it!

Taz: Uh... WAAGGHDEEDEEDEEDEEIGH!!

Yakko: No, no, that's not it either! You know, the funny thing!

Dot: Can we finish this cartoon?

Yakko: Alright!

Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
We are pests, we are pests, we are pests!
Yakko:
As you can surely tell
Wakko:
It's a job that we do well
Yakko:
So should you be at someone's house
When they're acting like a louse
Wakko:
Be like us! Make a fuss!
Yakko and Wakko:
And be a pest, be a pest, be a pest!
Yakko:
Grab your host, give a squeeze
Maybe somewhere round the knees!
Wakko:
You're his guest- cheer him up!
Yakko:
No, no, please don't interrupt!
Tweak a nose, pull some ears
Swing him from the chandeliers!
Wakko:
Watch him go, to and fro
Yakko:
Ah, see now, you're a pro!
Yes, you deserve a great big hand,
Because now you know you can
Yakko and Wakko:
Be a pest! Be a pest! Be a pest!
