The Tick's Mighty Songbook!

Episode #4 (The Tick vs. Mr. Mental):

Lotta's Song
You made my mind your playground,
My thoughts your slides and swings,
My reckless heart your seesaw,
And yet my mouth, it sings!

I've lost all my marbles!
And you hold all my jacks.
My heart is skipping jump rope.
I want my playground back.

Spoken:  Get out of my mind

Episode #13 (The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account):

Big and Blue

When no one understands you,
Or the little things you do.
When Destiny, she strands you,
Or wears you like a shoe.

That's when you know it's over.
That's when you know it's through.

I never thought I'd be
So bi-i-i-i-i-ig
And blue.

Episode #16 (Armless But Not Harmless):

Enemy Awards Theme

If you're a crook, then you're our enemy,
Be our enemy, friend.
We love you 'cause we hate you to the end!

Just be our enemy!

And the song Plunger Man whistled as a theme of sorts?
"Spring" from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons.

Episode #19 (Bloomsday): [Turn naration .]

I'd Take a Bite of the Moon For You

America The Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good
With brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

Sung by: American Maid, displaying her... Er... Talent?
[Written by: Katharine Lee Bates]

My Country 'Tis of Thee

My country tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing

Swing Low Sweet Chariot

Swing low, sweet char-io-ot
Comin' for to carry me home!
Swing low,
Sweet char-io-ot
Comin' for to carry me home.

Sung by: Arthur, finally joining in.

John Henry
(As sung by Arthur)

When John Henry was a little baby
Sitting on his daddy's knee
He picked up a hammer
A little piece of steel
And said
(At this point he digresses into nonsensical semi-musical mumblings)

Sung by: Arthur, really getting into it.

That Mustache Feeling


Got that feelin'!
Ohhh yeah.
Mustache feelin' in my soul!
Got that feelin'!
From my lip down to my toe!


He ain't nobody's foo-oo-ool!
Ha ha ha ha.
He got himself some coool!

Upper lip
Slick and hip.
Pointy on the ends.

Makin' a new set of friends!

Got that feelin'!
Lookin' good.
Mustache feelin'
Oh, that mustache kinda feel-in'!

The Tick (spoken): Ha ha-aa!
