"Never Give Up" is a song featured in the episode "Hello Bikini Bottom!" Both SpongeBob and Squidward sing it in order to try and get their band back together after Squidward leaves.


SpongeBob: [starts playing ukulele] Squidward, you must look inward,
And then I'm sure that you will see,
What an awesome band we still could be.
Please, oh, please, don't quit on us now,
I cannot allow this to be our last bow.
Now, now, now, no, no, no, nah, nah, nah, na, na, na.
Ne-ne never give up!
Don't ever give up.
We can't let Mr. Krabs go bankrupt,
We must keep busy, never giving u-up!
Squidward: How did I not see this plan was a failure from the start?
Being around SpongeBob, is bad for my heart.
And that's not even the worst part!
Supermarkets, retirement homes, birthday parties for kids,
My career in music really feels, like it has hit the skids.
I give up
There is no point,
I give up.
Mr. Krabs will have to go bankrupt,
While I'm busy, bitterly giving up.
SpongeBob: Don't you see?
Mr. Krabs needs us terribly.
We've got in us to be a huge success,
You and I can't settle for less.
I promised myself not to shed this tear.
Squidward: It's getting really cold out here, and I'm 400 miles from home, It would appear,
And my feet are hurting, oh, dear, I fear,
This tentacleitis is pretty severe...
Tentacle: Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah!
Squidward: I should probably give up.
On this giving up today.
This is the part when I turn around and play.
SpongeBob: This is the part when I stand up and play.
SpongeBob and Squidward: Take a deep breath, in an emotional way,
Cause with my instrument is how I say.
[Instrumental with clarinet, ukulele, and drums]
