This theme song is from Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain. It is a reprise of the standard Pinky and the Brain theme, with new lyrics written by John P. McCann[1] to reflect the changes to the show (as well as the crew's own resentment towards it). There are two versions of this song-- the standard, shorter version used in 12 of the show's 13 episodes, and a longer version with an Elmyra-centric verse from the show's pilot episode. The animation for both versions of the intro was done by Rough Draft.

Description[]

The theme song describes the status-quo change for the mice, detailing how they got to Elmyra and their lives with her. In the longer version, Elmyra gets a verse to talk about her love for pets and what her life is like.

Lyrics[]

Long version[]

Pinky:
Gee, Brain, what do ya wanna do today?
The Brain:
Same thing we do every day, Pinky, endure Elmyra, then try to take over the world!
Chorus:
The situation's changed 
For Pinky and the Brain.
No laboratory,
Alone in the rain.
And someone's looking 'round
for where they might be found.
It's stinky
for Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain,
Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain,
Brain.
Their pressure magnified,
With every lab they tried,
They had to flee constantly,
Needing a place to hide.
Trapped inside a store,
A girl ran in the door.
She bought a discount turtle,
but ended up with more.
Elmyra:
Furry things are nice,
I love my talking mice,
I take them to school,
And make them eat rice.
I spray them with perfume
In my own bedroom.
Chorus:
They're wrinkly,
And often in great pain, pain, pain, pain,
Pain, pain, pain, pain,
Brain.
So Pinky and the Brain
share a new domain,
It's what the network wants,
Why bother to complain?
The Earth remains a goal,
some things they can't control,
They're Pinky,
Elmyra and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain,
Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain,
The Brain:
I deeply resent this.
Pinky:
Troz!
Elmyra:
Mousies!

Trapped inside a store,
A girl ran in the door.
She bought a discount turtle,
but ended up with more.
Now Pinky and the Brain
share a new domain,
It's what the network wants,
Why bother to complain?
The Earth remains a goal,
some things they can't control,
They're Pinky,
Elmyra and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain,
Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain,
The Brain:
I deeply resent this.
Pinky:
