"Some of Humanity's Wins" is a song from the Animaniacs reboot cartoon. "Aliens Resurrected." It is performed by Yakko Warner (Rob Paulsen), Wakko Warner (Jess Harnell), Dot Warner (Tress MacNeille), and the aliens Chip and Two-horns (Jon Bailey).

Description

When Chip and Two-horns arrive to Earth intent on wiping out all life, the Warners try to explain to them that humanity doesn't deserve to get erased. They accomplish this with a musical number highlighting humanity's various achievements, while the aliens attempt to chime-in with a more cynical outlook on them.

Lyrics

Yakko:
Pyramids, aqueducts, civilization
Democracy, MLK, desegregation
Dot:
Einstein, Alhazen, their famous equations
No smallpox not polio, thanks, vaccinations
Yakko:
Nightingale, Curie, the founding of nations
Van Gogh
Dot:
Frida Kahlo
Wakko:
And us animations
Tchaikovsky and Mozart played on violins
To name but a few of humanity’s wins
Yakko:
They aren’t perfect, they’re still learning
So as you judge their worth
We only ask you try to be discerning
Before you smite them from the face of the Earth
Wakko:
Petra, the Taj, and the Great Wall of China
The Three Gorges Dam, the Large Hadron Collider
Confucius, the Buddha, and Abraham Lincoln
Plato and Sun Tzu, they got people thinking
Dot:
Austen and Shelley, those three Brontë sisters
Kurosawa, Casablanca
Wakko:
And don’t forget Twister!
Dot:
Elvis and Freddie,
Adele when she sings
These are a few of humanity’s wins
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot:
They aren’t perfect, but they’re trying
I know you’ve got your doubts
Maybe just give them a chance at complying
Before you go and wipe them all out!
Yakko:
Uh-oh! They’ve taken Ralph into the de-atomizer.
They start on the brain first, so we do not have much time!
Renewable energy, green power stations
Chip:
Endangered species and deforestation
Wakko:
The internet, smartphones, the United Nations
Chip:
Major oil spills, coral reef devastation
Dot:
Astronauts watching the Earth as it spins
Chip and Two-horns:
Those don’t excuse all humanity’s sins.
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
They aren’t perfect, but they’re improving
It takes time to advance
But just look at the direction that they’re moving
And maybe give ‘em one more
Chance!
