"Give Jellyfish Fields a Chance" is a song sung by SpongeBob and Patrick in the episode "SpongeBob's Last Stand." It protests the new Shelly Superhighway.


SpongeBob and Patrick: Chum Bucket! Sludge bucket!
Highway fly away!
Lily liver! Pizza giver!
Mashed potato! Kelp tomato!
All we are trying to say is give Jellyfish Fields a chance!
Ketchup bottle! Net and goggle!
Toll booth! Rotten tooth!
Freeway plan! Toast and jam!
Mermaid Man! Garbage can!
Citrus fruit! Combat boot!
Give a hoot! Gorilla suit!
All we are trying to say is give Jellyfish Fields a chance!
Plankton's eye! Ham on rye!
Larry's thigh! Battle cry!
Mustard squirt! Long-sleeved shirt!
Self assert! Hit the dirt!
Krusty Krab! Smash-and-grab!
Barg-n-Mart! Grocery cart!
All we are trying to say is give Jellyfish Fields a chance!
C.E.O.s! Gary's toes!
Squidward's nose! Panty hose!
Rocking chair! Wash 'n' wear!
Empty stare! Patrick's hair!
Green trees! Sandy's fleas!
Rise and shine! Lemon lime!
Outta time! Squiggly line!
Take a stand! Hand in hand!
All we are trying to say is give Jellyfish Fields...
a chance!....
