"Teamwork" is a song that is sung by SpongeBob and Plankton in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.


SpongeBob: Teamwork! We can do anything when we have teamwork. Don't you think so, my friend?
Plankton: No te-am work. It's getting in the way of my sche-am work. What don't you comprehend?
SpongeBob: But working together is the key. Nothing's impossible when it's you and me!
Plankton: I'm doing just fine on my own.
SpongeBob: Work is no fun when you do it alone!
Plankton: If I want it done right, I'll do it by myself!
SpongeBob: But what if you need something on a higher shelf?
Plankton: But-I'm-the-target-of-a-very-scary-crazy-post-apocalyptic-mob!
SpongeBob: Well, that's exactly why you need a partner helping you with this important job! I'll be the hammer, and you'll be the nail. I'll be the boat, and you'll be the sail! I'm the flower, you're the aroma!
Plankton: Right now I wish I was in a coma!
SpongeBob: Come on! I'm here for you, and you're here for me! It's better when you, plus me, equals we! Working together in harmony! [Chorus joins] Side by side, we can reach our dreams, 'cause nothing's impossible, when we're a team!
Plankton: Alright, you can put me down.

Lyrics to extended version

(As revealed on a deleted scene, continuing where SpongeBob and Plankton left off when the song ended. They sing as they build the time machine.)

SpongeBob: Teamwork! We can do anything when we have teamwork. Don't you think so, my friend?
Plankton: [annoyed silence] ...Te-am work! I'm use to working alone. Can't this te-am just be me, myself and Plankton?
SpongeBob: If we build this together, we can't go wrong. Plus with the two of us, it'll take half as long!
Plankton: I need a vessel to travel through time and space.
SpongeBob: That photo booth could be the perfect place.
Plankton: But there's a matter of a power source to address. What's that thing that spins?
SpongeBob: A blender?
Plankton: Yes! I must admit, I didn't realize that you were so intelligent and clever.
SpongeBob: Well our brain powers double when we put our heads together! I'll be the firework, and you'll be the flame. I'll be the picture, and you'll be the frame. I'll be the snow, and you'll be the sled!
Plankton: I'll be the butter, and you'll be the pinecone!
SpongeBob: Kind of. I'm here for you.
Plankton: And you're here for me.
Both: It's better when you, plus me, equals we! Working together in harmony! Side by side, we can reach our dreams, 'cause it's double or nothing, when we're a team!
(Now here's where it gets educational.)
SpongeBob: Well of what times the matter of the quantum space?
Plankton: Plus the ratio of the matter in the ocean base?
SpongeBob: Divided by five.
Plankton: Carry the one.
Both: And time does not exist!
SpongeBob: We need a dash of ingenuity, a bit of specificity. A jolt of intuition, and a volt of electricity.
Plankton: A little bit of soda, and a lot of guacamole. Put it in the blender, and watch out! Holy moly!
SpongeBob: Now the mean, minus the ratio of speed.
Plankton: Plus the balance of the gigawatts it cannot exceed.
SpongeBob: The ways in which.
Plankton: The continuum switch.
SpongeBob: Marks the path.
Plankton: By physics and math.
SpongeBob: Into.
Plankton: The field.
SpongeBob: Of.
Plankton: Time.
SpongeBob: And.
Both: Light!
SpongeBob: That's it!
Plankton: I did it!
SpongeBob: No, we did it!
Plankton: Wait, we did do it, as a te-am.
SpongeBob: You mean team.
Plankton: A te-am.
SpongeBob: Team.
Plankton: Te-am.
Both: TEAM! I'm here for you, and you're here for me! It's better when you, plus me, equals we! Working together in harmony! Side by side, we can reach our dreams, 'cause nothing's impossible, when we're a team!

Lyrics to original version

(This version can be found on the Sponge Out of Water Blu-Ray's Special Features. The lyrics are completely different compared to the original.)

SpongeBob: Was Bikini Bottom built in one day?
Plankton: No..
SpongeBob: Yes!
SpongeBob: Should you put your pants on all alone?
Plankton: Yes..
SpongeBob: No!
SpongeBob: Can a year exist without the month of May?
Plankton: Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh!
SpongeBob: Can the mermaid choir sing without a baritone..
Mermaids: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork!
SpongeBob: For everyone to smile!
Mermaids and SpongeBob: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork!
SpongeBob: To make it all worth while!
Mermaids and SpongeBob: La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Plankton: Now with this hammer and I if I smash your ugly face in, is that teamwork?
SpongeBob: No, no, that's not teamwork, that just hurts my face
Plankton: What about that angry mob, with pitchforks and torches that want us dead? Is THAT teamwork?
SpongeBob: If they kill us, yes, Plankton, but I was hoping for something a little more positive.
Plankton: [screams] I just can't concentrate with all of your horrible key toying! I need something to drown it out to make it sound good, like this! [Plankton takes out a piano and starts playing it.]
SpongeBob: That's it, Plankton! That's teamwork!
SpongeBob: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork! For everyone to smile!
SpongeBob: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork! To make it all worth while!
Plankton: Let me get this straight now; more than one can do a job!
SpongeBob: And how?
Plankton: Four hands!
SpongeBob: Six hands!
Plankton: Eight hands!
SpongeBob: Twelve hands!
Plankton: What do we have on our heads?
SpongeBob: Headbands!
SpongeBob: We can be just like the perfect teammates!
Plankton: Like PB and J, like snow and sleigh
SpongeBob: Or Mermaid Man, or the Barnacle Boy!
Plankton: And a patty and a bun is total joy!
SpongeBob: Teamwork! It takes teamwork!
Plankton: For everyone to smile!
SpongeBob: That's right, Plankton!
SpongeBob: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork!
Plankton: To make it all worth while!
SpongeBob: Haha! Together!
Both: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork! For everyone to smile!
SpongeBob: Nice harmony!
Both: It takes teamwork! It takes teamwork! To make it all worth while! To make it all worth while! It takes teamwork!
