Lyrics

Dr. Scratchansniff:
Wake up! It's late!
It's 20 minutes after 8!
Everyone get up, it's time to go
Up and at them now
Come on, shake a leg!
Have some juice and scrambled egg
On the floor and out the door
Let's get on our way!
Dot:
Hey, watch out!
Yakko:
What's the matter?
Dot:
You almost knocked me off the ladder!
Yakko:
No, I didn't!
Dot:
Yes you did, I almost fell!
Yakko:
Aww, don't exaggerate
Dot:
I'm not!
Yakko:
Yeah, right
Dot:
Are you trying to pick a fight?
Yakko:
Will you get out of my face?
Dot:
Well, you're always in my space!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Hey, get off each other's case
Because we're trying to get along
Wakko:
I want pancakes, or a waffle
This tastes awful, is that all we've got?
Can't find my clothes and I need to blow my nose
And my socks are full of holes
And my shoelace has a knot!
Dot:
That's my toothbrush!
Yakko:
No, it's not!
Dot:
Well, it's sitting in my slot!
Yakko:
No it isn't; this is mine and that one's yours.
Dot:
Well, you're standing in my way!
Yakko:
Yeah, that's tough!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Alright, now that's enough!
Everybody get your stuff
Because we're going out the door!
Every time we get into the car it's so much work
It takes us twenty minutes while you're driving me berserk
With your playing and your jumping
And your running all about
When I finally get you inside,
You always lock me out!
Dot:
I'm mad, I'm mad!
I'm really, really, really mad!
You poked me with your elbow in my side!
Yakko:
No, I didn't!
Dot:
Yes, you did!
Yakko:
Nuh-uh!
Dot:
You did!
And I'm just a little kid!
You're lying! Don't deny it!
Yakko:
Well, I'm gonna hit you!
Dot:
Yeah, just try it!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Will both of you be quiet? Cause we're driving in a car!
Dot:
Ow! He hit me!
Yakko:
Ow, she bit me!
Dot:
He said he's gonna get me!
Yakko:
No, I didn't!
Dot:
Yes, you did!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
All right, that's it! Now I forbid
Either one of you to say another word!
Wakko:
Are we there yet? I'm tired!
I'm hungry! How far?
My nose is snotty, need to move my body
Gotta use the potty, better stop the car!
Dot:
Stop it!
Yakko:
No, you stop it!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Why can't you both just drop it?
Dot:
Well, he started it!
Yakko:
Oh, yeah, I'm really sure, uh-huh!
Dot:
Nuh-uh!
Yakko:
Uh-uh!
Dot:
It's your fault!
Yakko:
No, it's not
Your leg is in my spot!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Yakko, you be quiet! And that goes for you too, Dot!
Every time we take a trip, it's always just the same
With the fighting and the biting
And the calling all those names,
Then there's pushing and there's shoving
And there's scratching on the neck
When we finally get to where we're going
Everyone's a wreck!
The Warners:
Yak yak yak yak, yak yak yak yak, yak yak yak yak yak!
Dot:
I'm mad, I'm mad!
I'm really, really, really mad!
You poked me with your elbow in my side!
Yakko:
No, I didn't!
Dot:
Yes, you did! You did!
And I'm just a little kid
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Will both of you be quiet? Cause we're driving in a car!
Wakko:
Are we there yet? I'm tired!
I'm hungry! How far?


My nose is snotty, need to move my body
Gotta use the potty, better stop the car!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
We're here, we're here!
Doesn't anybody want to give a cheer?
Yakko:
You mean this is where we're all gonna spend the day?
Dot:
At the circus?
Wakko:
Hey, guys, look! They got rides!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Now you're satisfied?
Alright, everyone inside,
And let's have some fun, okay?
Dot:
I'm glad, I'm glad!
What a really great time we had!
You see those lions and those tigers?
Weren't they neat?
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Are you happy now?
Dot:
We are, thanks a lot!
I'm sorry that we fought
From now on I'll get along
Yakko:
That's alright, Dot, I was wrong.
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Ah that's nice, now come along,
Let's all get in the car
Dot:
You can take the seat you like,
You're always so gallant
Yakko:
Aw, thank you, Dot, but ladies first,
You take the seat you want
Dr. Scratchansniff:
Everybody's happy now,
We've had a real good day
And now it's time to go back home
So let's be on our way!
Dot: You hit me!
Yakko: No, I didn't!
Dot: Yes, you did. Stop it!
Yakko: No, you stop it!
Dot: Move your leg!
Yakko: No, you move your leg!
Dot: You started it!
Yakko: No, I didn't, you did!
Dot: No, I didn't, you did!
Yakko:
Started what? Don't you cross that line! This is where the line is, right here! Dr. Scratchansniff, she started it!
Dot:
You always start it! You're not the boss of me! Oh, yeah, since when? Get out of my face! I'm the boss here!
[arguing continues and fades out]

Trivia

  • Both of the actors for Yakko and Dot, Rob Paulsen and Tress MacNeille, were having so much fun with recording the argument scene at the end of the song, that they both started cursing as their characters. The directors told them to stop, and during the record version, the song would fade out as Yakko and Dot fight as an attempt to hide the cursing.[citation needed]
  • Select PAL prints of episode 69 crop this cartoon to 4:3, rather than letterboxing it.
  • The theatrical film print would not resurface in full until a YouTube upload by FT Depot on September 27, 2023. However, Warner Bros. issued a copyright strike against the video the following day and removed it. It has since been archived.
