"U.N. Me" is a song about the U.N. building in New York City, from the segment of the same name. It is sung by Yakko, Wakko and Dot to the tune of "Down by the Riverside."

Lyrics[]

Yakko:
U.N. me, we had a bag of fun
Down by the East Riverside!
That United Nations there
Drives away a fella's care
183 countries meet
Down by the East Riverside
New York, off 42nd Street
Wakko:
See foreign states with a grudge
Down by the East Riverside
United Nations tries to fix
Wars, famine, and oil slicks
Boutros Boutros Ghali-gee
Down by the East Riverside
Leads the General Assembly
Dot:
The gift shop will take traveler's checks
Down by the East Riverside
German tourists were not rare
Buying T-shirts and flatware
Ate pastry from Liberia
Down by the East Riverside
At the U.N. cafeteria
The Warners:
Took a tour with some Dutch
Down by the East Riverside
We had a guide from Japan
Who had a decent pension plan.
Saw costly artwork from Brazil
Down by the East Riverside
On which my soda I did spill
U.N. me, we had a bag of fun
Down by the East Riverside
Saw flags on shiny poles
From lands with lofty goals
We'll beat our swords into liverwurst
Down by the East Riverside
But no one wants to be the first
But then I guess it could be worse
Wakko:
We could still sing one more verse
The Warners:
U.N. me!

Trivia[]

  • There are now 193 full members of the United Nations, 10 more than the 183 mentioned by Yakko in the song. This line was accurate when the song released in the Yakko's World album, but quickly became outdated when Palau joined in the 15th of December, 1994. Nine more countries (Nauru, Tonga, Tuvalu, Serbia, Switzerland, Timor-Leste, Montenegro and South Sudan in that order) have since joined, increasing the amount of full members to 193.
    • However, 195 countries meet if you count the two non-member observer states of Palestine and the Vatican City.
