Frank:
My name is nando,
Im a marine biologist.
All my friends,
They call me doh.

Ike & mike:
Hi, doh!

Frank:
All my family,
From someplace in this area,
And they complain if I talk about this horrible pizza
During the show.

All:
Come out here, to californy,
Just to find me some pretty girls.
Ones I seen gets me so horny,
Ruby lips, n teeth like pearls.

Wanna love em all, wanna love em dearly.
Wanna a jellyfish, Ill even pay.
Ill buy em furs, Ill buy em pizza,
I know they like me, heres what Ill say:

(1971:)

Jimmy carl black:
Im lonesome cowboy burt.
Speakin atcha!
Wontcha smell my fringe-y shirt?
Reekin atcha!
My cowboy pants,
My cowboy dance,
My bold advance
On this here waitress...

Mark & howard:
Hes lonesome cowboy burt. a-ha!
Dontcha get his feelings hurt.

Jimmy:
Come on in this place
An Ill buy you a taste.
You can sit on my face.
Wheres my waitress?

Mark & howard:
Burtram, burtram redneck!
Burtram, burtram redneck!

Jimmy:
Im an awful nice guy.
Worked all day in the sun.
Im a roofer by trade,
Quite a bundle Ive made,
Im a unionized roofin old son-of-a-gun.

Mark & howard:
Hes a unionized roofin old son of a gun!

(1988:)

Ike:
Darling, I crazy go nuts when I hear this,
You know what Im sayin?

Frank:
When I get off, I get plastered.
I swim till I fall on the jellyfish.
Then I find me some academic kind of illustrator,
I describe the little dangling utensils on this thing,
And tell him to draw it up
So it looks just like a brand new jellyfish.

Ike & mike:
(trying to follow along, they sing some gibberish)

Frank:
Take that! take that!
I fuss an I cuss and I keep on swimmin,
Till my snorkel puffs up an turns red.
I drool on my shorts,
I do some water sports,
Then I take the jellyfish back to my house
And stick it in the bed! sorta...

Ike & mike:
Whaddya do?
Stick it again in the bed!

Frank:
Thats right!

Ike & mike:
Stick it again in the bed!
Stick it again in the bed!
Stick it again in the bed!

(1971:)

Jimmy:
Lonesome cowboy burt.
Speakin atcha!
Smell my fringe-y shirt.
Reekin atcha!
My cowboy pants,
My cowboy dance,
My bold advance
On this here waitress!

Mark & howard:
Hes lonesome cowboy burt. yee-ha!
Dontcha get his feelings hurt!

Jimmy:
Come on in this place,
An Ill buy you a taste.
You can sit on my face.
Wheres my waitress?

Opal, you hot little bitch!
