Daddy Knows Best Lyrics

The SpongeBob SquarePants Musical - Daddy Knows Best Lyrics

Life is short and the end is near
It's important to identify what you hold dear
It's clear
Pearl, your daddy always knows best

PEARL
"I'm not in the mood for a teaching moment right now."

MR. KRABS
Lemme tell you what counts more than all the rest
Money-money matters most
Money-money I can boast
Money-money, make a toast
Money! Money! Money! Ha!

PEARL
"You just don't understand me. I mean, I know we're not the same species,
but that doesn't mean that money's the—"

MR. KRABS
Baby, money makes funny things funnier, sunny things sunnier
Nothing's crummier than no bread
Pearl, your daddy always knows best

PEARL
"Daddy, would you just listen to me?"

MR. KRABS
Pearl, lemme show you how deeply we're blessed
Money-money in this drawer
Money-money 'round the store
Money-money from the floor
Money! Money! Money! Ha!

PEARL
I should be my daddy's greatest prize
But instead, he's got dollar signs in his eyes
Daddy, you just don't understand
All I care about is rockin' out with my favorite band (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, the feeling that it creates (yeah, yeah)
When I hear the Electric Skates

MR. KRABS
[COINS JANGLING] "Can you hear it, Pearl?"

(Money-money, money-money, money-money, money-money...)

PEARL
Daddy, can you hear me?
Can you hear me at all?!
DADDY!

MR. KRABS
Money-money in the air

PEARL
Can you hear me?!

MR. KRABS
Money-money everywhere

PEARL
Oh, can you hear me?! No!

MR. KRABS
Money-money, do not share

PEARL
Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money!

PEARL
Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money!

PEARL
Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money!

PEARL
Daddy, can you hear me?!

MR. KRABS
Money-money, I'll stay true

PEARL
Can you hear me?!

MR. KRABS
Money-money, just us two

PEARL
Can you hear me?! No!

MR. KRABS
Money-money, I love you

MR. KRABS
Money-money!

PEARL
Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money-money!

PEARL
Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money-money!

PEARL
Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money-money!

PEARL
Daddy!

PEARL & MR. KRABS
Money-money-money-money-money-money-money-money
Daddy-daddy-daddy-daddy-daddy-daddy-daddy-daddy

PEARL
DADDY!

MR. KRABS
"I'm sorry, Pearl, were you trying to say something?"

PEARL
[SOBBING] Daddy!

MR. KRABS
Money!
