"Bikini Bottom Day" is a song written by Jonathan Coulton, which serves as the opening number for the SpongeBob SquarePants musical.


SpongeBob: Ah. Good morning world. And all who inhabit it.
Jump out of bed
Mix up a breakfast for my favorite pet snail
Gary: Meow.
SpongeBob: Full steam ahead
The S.S. I Am Ready is about to set sail
This kind of day
Couldn't get much better
But it keeps on trying
I'm on my way
Somewhere there's a Krabby Patty
That needs frying
And who's the lucky sponge in the mirror
Who is living his dream,
Who's always extra careful
With his dental hygiene?
Gary, it's me
Happy just to be here
In the world renowned, Bikini Bottom
How I love this town, Bikini Bottom
When the sun shines down
On a beautiful Bikini Bottom day!
Good morning, Patrick!
Patrick: (yawns) Is it morning already?
SpongeBob: It sure is! And I'm singing an opening number!
Patrick: Oh, oh! I want a verse!
I missed a snack
This busy schedule makes it hard to be me
To stay on track
Now I'll have to eat it
While I'm watching TV
There might not be time for a nap
But I'll do what I can
They're showing all the episodes of...
Patrick & SpongeBob: Mermaid Man!
Patrick: Aw, every single one!
I'm spending all day underneath
My favorite rock (Ensemble: Favorite rock...)
SpongeBob: Bikini Bottom...
Patrick: Now, what rhymes with rock? (Ensemble: Rhymes with rock...)
SpongeBob: Bikini Bottom...
Patrick: 'Nothing rhymes with rock! (Ensemble: Rhymes with rock...)
Patrick & SpongeBob: It's a typical Bikini Bottom day!
Squidward: Would you two please keep it down?
SpongeBob & Patrick: Good morning, Squidward!
Squidward: Another day, another migraine.
When I want some quiet
There's nowhere to go
A sensitive artiste
Can't get a moment's peace
With these two...
Squidward & ensemble: Idiots
Squidward: In...
Squidward & ensemble: Stereo!
Squidward: They never go away (Ensemble: Never go away)
Typical Bikini Bottom daaaaaaaaaaaaaaay... Pbbt!
French narrator: We now follow SpongeBob past the treedome, home to Sandy Cheeks ze squirrel. Hard at work on her latest invention.
Sandy: Boy howdy, that was close!
It's just a little smoke
A minor setback (Ensemble: Setback...)
A few more hours at most
And I'll be done with this here
Brand new jetpack (Ensemble: Jetpack..)
And then this Texas squirrel, this country girl
Will spread her wings and fly
Her bushy tail, a comet's trail
Clear across the sky
Sandy and Ensemble: Above the town and looking down
On a typical Bikini Bottom Daaaaaaay! (Ensemble: Day... Daaaaaaay...)
SpongeBob: Bye, Sandy! I'm off to work at the Krusty Krab!
French narrator: Ah, yes. Bikini Bottom's most popular dining establishment, home to ze Krabby Patty, owned and operated by Mr. Eugene Krabs. And across town, ze least popular restaurant, the Chum Bucket, run by Sheldon J. Plankton. Two arch-nemeses locked in a fast food cold war.
Mr. Krabs: Winds from the west
Everywhere you look the sky is clear and sunny
Good weather's best
When you're in the mood to make a ton of money (laughs)
Plankton: (laughs) Laugh while you can
Until the day you laugh no more forever
Karen: Forever
Plankton: I've got a plan
And I went to college so you know it's clever
Mr. Krabs: They say that money doesn't matter
If ya love your work, ha!
Who would say that? Probably
Some penniless jerk
Plankton: Soon the day will come
When they'll all love chum
It's just a matter of time...
Mr. Krabs & Karen: Bikini Bottom...
Plankton: Till I get there in line
Mr. Krabs & Karen: Bikini Bottom...
Plankton: And this town is all mine!
Mr. Krabs, Plankton & Karen: Just a typical Bikini Bottom day
SpongeBob: SpongeBob reporting for duty at the greatest restaurant in the entire ocean! Where's Mr. Krabs?
Squidward: It's Take Your Kid to Work Day.
Mr. Krabs: Just think, Pearl, me darlin' daughter, one day this will all be yours! Soon as ye graduate high school, I'll start ya as manager!
Pearl: But I have my own dreams, Daddy!
SpongeBob: Uh, Mr. Krabs, if she doesn't wanna be manager, I know someone who'd be great for the job.
Mr. Krabs: You?! My boy, yer just a wee simple sponge! A fry cook's all you'll ever be!
SpongeBob: Why can't he see?
I wear my good shoes
And I've got my tie on
Maybe it's me
Am I just a simple sponge
You can rely on?
Come on, Mr. Krabs, I can do it
If you give me one chance
Everyone would say,
"Good morning, Mr. SquarePants!"
I would never rest
Until I was the best
Mr. Krabs: SpongeBob, get in the kitchen! It's opening time!
SpongeBob and Company: In the world-renowned (world-renowned...)
Bikini Bottom
Our own hometown (own hometown...)
Bikini Bottom
And the sun shines down (sun shines down...)
The sun shines down (sun shines down...)
Yeah, the sun shines down (sun shines down...)
The sun shines down (sun shines down...)
Company: It's a typical
SpongeBob: Incredible
Company: A regular
SpongeBob: Exceptional
Company: An ordinary

SpongeBob: Can't stay in bed
One final morning I can spend with Gary
Gary: Meow.
SpongeBob: Big day ahead
Two parts impossible and three parts scary
Gary, you know
Climbing a killer mountain won't be easy
Eh, I just won't go...
SpongeBob: Okay, I know! Bikini Bottom needs me
And look at all these ropes and these hammers
That you got me somehow
Gary, you're the greatest!
Where'd you get this stuff?
Gary: Meow.
SpongeBob: I'm ready, thanks to you
I know that I can do it
For the world-renowned
Bikini Bottom
Gonna save this town
Bikini Bottom
I just won't look down
On this maybe last Bikini Bottom day
All right, Gary. This is it.
Gary: Meow.
SpongeBob: You need to be strong now. If I don't make it back, and I may not, you'll have to go on without me.
Gary: Meow.
SpongeBob: And I carry you in mine, Gary. Always.

Everything gets better if you keep on trying

When you're cleaning up spills

With some management skills
