The Senses Song
"The Senses Song" is a song from episode 44 of Animaniacs. It not only explores the five senses, but also different kinds of senses. The music was written by Tom Lehrer from his song "The Irish Ballad" and the lyrics were adapted by Randy Rogel and Tom Ruegger. It is the thirteenth track on the album .
Announcer: And now, the Warners present: the Senses!
The sense of sight is what guides us right when we go out on walks
The sense of smell is the way to tell that you need to change your socks
The sense of touch is what hurts so much when you bang your toe on the bed
The sense of hearing is something good, cause if a tree falls in the wood,
Would there be a sound? You bet there would...
If it landed on top your head!
Your head! If a tree lands on top of your head!
The sense of taste affects your waist
Which makes five senses in all
There's a sixth sense, too, but it's hard to explain
It's a psychic connection inside of your brain
So you can understand people like Shirley MacLaine
Who wear crystals they bought in the mall!
The mall! Who wear crystals they bought in the mall!
Yakko: And now, the other senses!
There are scents you can smell, like cologne from Chanel Or the scents of expensive perfume
There are scents of flowers we hope overpowers the kitty box next to your room. P-yew!
There's a sense of pride you have deep down inside
When you practice a sense of fair play
There are dollars and cents that you pay at a toll
Or the census man who is taking a poll
And a sense of confusion, we're out of control...
And they really should take us away!
Away! They really should take us away!
There's a sense of humor, a sense of doom Or a sense of awe, sense of timing
The sense of a word, a sense of absurd, Like trying to do all this rhyming!
And horse sense
And common sense, it's true
Sense of wonder, sense of beauty
Sense of honor, sense of duty
A sense of doubt, a sense of danger
A sense of fear when you meet a stranger
A sense of style, a sense of worth
A sense of direction for knowing the earth
A sense of dread as we're singing this song
That it's starting to turn out completely all wrong
And it's time that we end it because it's too long.....
Cause it just doesn't make any sense!
Nonsense! This song doesn't make any sense!
