Lyrics

Pinkie and Cheese singing to Sans Smirk S9E14.png

[Cheese Sandwich]
So you're saying it's a mix-up
Of the sounds that I just made
That coaxed the snicker from your throat
In a delicate cascade?
If I did it one more time
If I reproduced that feat
Mixed up some letters here and there
You'd "lelly-baugh" tout suite?
[ponies laughing]
[Cheese Sandwich]
Then that's all I need to do
That's who I need to be
I thought I needed laughter
But it has to come from me
Squirting flowers and knobby knees
Rubber chickens my expertise
If you want laughter, then stick with Cheese
[ponies laughing]
Pinkie Pie: Yeah!
[Cheese Sandwich]
I suppose now I should amp things up
To get the thing I'm after
Move whole syll-AB-les around
And change em-PHA-sis to get laughter
Can't stop now, I'm on a roll
I've almost got it back
Bright folks like you aren't subject to
My play-on-words attack!
With something else, I'll have to play
To get me where I'm going
Pinkie Pie: Whatcha gonna do?
[Cheese Sandwich]
[falsetto] Some Commedia dell'arte
To get the laughter flowing
And it's what I need to do
It's who I need to be
I thought I needed laughter
But it has to come from me
Follow right behind, if you please
Walk this way and I guarantee
If you want laughter, then stick with Cheese
Accordion solo!
Pinkie Pie: Shred it, Cheese!
[accordion playing]
Cheese Sandwich: Whoo! [laughing and whooping]
And it's what I need to do
It's who I need to be
I thought I needed laughter
But it has to come from me
Whoopee cushions and Dungarees
I know jokes like my A-B-C's
If you want laughter, then stick with Cheese
[ponies laughing]
[Cheese Sandwich]
And now my biggest test
The hardest fish to fry
[Pinkie Pie]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
[Cheese Sandwich]
A mind so analytical
A sense of humor dry
[Pinkie Pie]
So dry!
[Cheese Sandwich]
To make you laugh would prove to me
That this experiment's done
[Pinkie Pie]
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
[Cheese Sandwich]
Something ridiculous and not too smart
Something like a pun
Hey, Sans! How did the laughing bird's eggs hatch? They cracked up!
[rimshot]
Sans Smirk: Sir... that is so... ridiculous! [laughs]
[Cheese Sandwich]
Then that's all I need to do
That's all I need to see
I thought I needed laughter
But it had to come from me
[All]
Squirting flowers and knobby knees
Rubber chickens and Dungarees
If you want laughter, then stick with Cheese!
