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
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,
Then 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?
Am I 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 fear, I 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 that volcano from erupting."

MR. KRABS
You are still a simple sponge

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

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

SPONGEBOB
"And Patrick, too; 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!"

SPONGEBOB
No, I'm not a simple sponge

SPONGES
Let me have adventure
Be a contender and more

SPONGEBOB
I am not a simple sponge

SPONGES
I'll make him see I'm not just the sponge next door

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
