List of songs

"Barnacles!" is a song sung by SpongeBob and the Hi-Seas on the album The Best Day Ever. It features Tejano musician Flaco Jiménez on the accordion.


We all know that the alphabet has twenty-six letters. (Count 'em!)
You can mix and match to make many nouns and verbs.
But if you say the wrong one to your mama, it may upset her.
So in Bikini Bottom, we have a word that's preferred.
We just say, "Barnacles!"
It's a word that's okay to scream
When you want to let off some steam
And say what you really mean.
We just yell, "Barnacles!"
And go on our merry way
"Barnacles" is the way we say
What they say we can't say.
The rodeo came to town, I went down, thought I'd try some bull ridin'.
That bovine bucked me off of his back with one mighty heave!
The judges found after I hit the ground and I finished climbin',
From under my cowgirl hat came some words that they couldn't believe.
Now I say, "Barnacles!"
It's a word that I heard down here,
It's easier on the ear,
Makes your troubles disappear.
When you say, "Barnacles!"
All the livelong day,
"Barnacles" is the way we say
What they say we can't say.
SpongeBob: It's the best thing that you've ever heard.
Patrick: It's a marvelous magical word.
SpongeBob: When you stub your toe...
Plankton: When your bomb won't blow!
Mr. Krabs: When you lose your dough...
[instrumental break]
Sandy: Yeehaw!
[SpongeBob trills]
SpongeBob: It's the best thing that you've ever heard.
All: It's a marvelous magical word.
Mr. Krabs:
I got hip to an investment tip, thought I'd play the stock market.
My broker would not steer me wrong, he's a real sharp guy.
What a trick! Get rich quick! So I dug way down deep in me pocket.
"Barnacles!" I exclaimed as I kissed my assets goodbye.
So just say, "Barnacles!"
When your at the end of your rope.
SpongeBob: Don't you sit around and mope...
Patrick: Or get your mouth washed out with soap...
Simply say, "Barnacles!"
And go on your merry way.
"Barnacles" is the way we say
What they say...
SpongeBob & Mr. Krabs:
Barnacles is the way
When you have a bad day.
"Barnacles" is the way we say
What they say we can't say!
Everyone: BARNACLES!
