The SpongeBob SquarePants Musical - Just a Simple Sponge Lyrics

"Just a Simple Sponge" is a song performed by Ethan Slater (SpongeBob) and Ensemble from SpongeBob SquarePants the musical.

SPONGEBOB
"There has to be another way."

MR. KRABS
"Let it go, boy. There's nothing you can do. You're just a simple sponge."

SPONGEBOB
Sure, I spend my days floating around
Head in the bubbles and my feet on the ground
But there is more to me than just my name
Give me a chance and I could change the game

And maybe one day Mr. Krabs would say
"The Krusty Krab's yours, it's your lucky day"
That is what I've always wanted,
That I can finally say I've done it

Let me have adventure
Be a contender and more

SPONGES
'Cause you're not a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
I wish he'd see I'm not just the sponge next door

SPONGES
No, you're not a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
There's gotta be a better way
A way to save this town I love
But how can I stop the end of the world
When I'm just a simple sponge?

SPONGES
No, you're not a simple sponge
No, you're not a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
So what if I'm a sponge? It's what I wanna be
There isn't anyone who stretches like me
Employee of the month two years in a row
Undisputed master of my own dojo

And everyone here knows that they can depend
On this expert jellyfisher who's a trusted friend
I can eat a lot of ice cream
I can even play my nose like [FLUTE TRILL]

Let me have adventure
Be a contender and more

SPONGES
'Cause you're not a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
Can't he see I'm not just the sponge next door?

SPONGES
No, you're not a simple—

SPONGEBOB
I wish that I could turn back time
I never thought my world could end
I only wanna hang out with my friends
But from here, our fear is dragging us down

ALL
And now there's panic that's run amok

SPONGEBOB
In my simple town

SPONGES
No, no, no, no

SPONGEBOB
No!
Just give me adventure
Be a contender and more

SPONGES
'Cause you're not a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
I'm real sure I'm not just the sponge next door

SPONGES
No, you're not a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
I'm gonna find a better way
A way to save this life I love
And I am gonna stop the end of the—

MR. KRABS
No!
You're just a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
"You're wrong, Mr. Krabs. I'll find a way to stop the eruption."

MR. KRABS
You are still a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
"I'll use science, just like Sandy said. I'm gonna need her on the team."

MR. KRABS
'Cause you're just a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
"We can use her jetpack to get to the top of Mount Humongous— Wait,
I'm pretty sure it's only built for one..."

MR. KRABS
See? You are a simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
"We'll just have to climb it then. Patrick can help with that; he's super strong.
We'll be the best team ever! Sandy's brains, plus Patrick's brawn, plus my..."

MR. KRABS
Yes, a very simple sponge

SPONGEBOB
"Well, I'm not sure what my thing is, but that won't stop me.
When the going gets tough, this sponge gets going!"

MR. KRABS
You are just—

SPONGEBOB
No, I'm not a simple sponge
I am not a simple sponge

ALL
Yeah, yeah, yeah

SPONGEBOB
Now at last, I have found a way
A way to save this town I love
I am not

ALL
A simple sponge
