Just Reboot It! is a song about reboots from the 2020 revival of Animaniacs.
They ran out of ideas for fresh new shows,
so Hollywood did the only thing it knows
Murphy Brown, Melrose Place, Gilmore Girls, Lost in Space.
That's So Raven's what they're cravin'.
I know that's a show worth saving!
I vote X Files for a comeback.
Duchovny's still a real snack!
Will the Golden Girls be darker
if we resurrect Bea Arthur?
Reboot it, renew it!
Reshoot it, redo it and reuse it, retool it!
Abuse it, just spew it!
If you wanna make some easy cash, just recycle and rehash
Repeat it, reinstate it!
Reheat it, recreate it!
There's no need to feel frustrated,
simply just regurgitate it.
For a guaranteed ratings smash, dig it up out of the trash, come on...just reboot it!
Will and Grace, and Dynasty
Sweet 16 on MTV
Blue's Clues, Twin Peaks, and Fargo
Go catch Carmen Sandiego
Just relax and take the flak
If people want it, bring it back!
Looney Tunes, Queer Eye, and DuckTales
Just reboot it, 'cause it sells
Take something foreign, then translate it
Shamelessly appropriate it
Even if the old fans hate it
Get the script rights cleared!
You've done sequels, tried for prequels
Think of all the streams that equals
Utilizing these techniques
Wakko and Dot:
Will make your shows revered, shows revered!
Reboot it, renew it
Reshoot it, redo it
And reuse it, retool it
Abuse it, just spew it!
If you wanna make some easy cash
Just recycle and rehash
Repeat it, reinstate it
Reheat it, recreate it
There's no need to feel frustrated
Simply just regurgitate it
For a guaranteed ratings smash
Dig it up out of the trash
Come on, just reboot it!
