Brain's Tall Tale Song is a song from the Pinky and the Brain episode "A Legendary Tail." It is performed by a chorus consisting of Maurice LaMarche, Rob Paulsen, Steve Bernstein, and Brian Strokes Mitchell; and plays intermittently throughout the cartoon.

Description[]

This song accompanies a folk tale created by Brain that depicts the adventures of "Big Johnny Brain Jones Peachpit Bill Boon Crockett and his sidekick, Little Pinky Flea Pie Waffle Shoe Clamhead Chris. The song summarizes portions of the story and eventually, engineers realistic outcomes that are far too logical and depressing for a fantastical legend. In the end of the episode, the song is reprised for the ending chorus and mixed with the Pinky and the Brain theme.

Lyrics[]

Big Johnny Brain Jones Peachpit Bill Boon Crockett
He walked through the land with a peach pit in his pocket
Oh, he stood 'bout as high as the ankles on a bear,
But he planted peach pits everywhere.
Yes, he'd plant them 'til his arm ached in his socket.
Little Pinky Flea Pie Waffle Shoe Clamhead Chris
Skipped through the West in a constant state of bliss
Oh, he kissed the trees, and he hugged the rocks
And he didn't own a pair of socks
And he didn't see the approaching precipice!
Big Johnny Brain Jones Peachpit Bill Boon Crockett
Knew if he talked the talk he'd have to walk it.
So he put a peach pit in Jimmy's shoe,
And in several months, a peach tree grew!
But meanwhile, Jimmy limped away uncomfortably.
Big Johnny What's-his-name had to keep folks quiet.
He'd rustle up a meal and get them all to try it.
So he found some oats and he put 'em in a lake
And a passel of oatmeal he did make
‘Cause fiber is a part of every healthy diet.
Big Johnny Brain Jones Peachpit Bill Boon Crockett
Hightailed it out of the West just like a rocket!
Oh, he didn't make a mark, and he didn't find fame.
And he didn't get to keep his name.
He even had to take his last peach pit and hock it!

Ending Chorus[]

They're dinky,
They're Pinky and
Big Johnny Brain Jones Peachpit Bill Boon Crockett!
