This is the page about the song. For other uses, see Best Day Ever (disambiguation).

"The Best Day Ever" is a song that is featured in the episode of the same name. It was previously featured in the end credits of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Andy Paley and Tom Kenny wrote and composed it.


Mr. Sun came up and he smiled at me, said, "It's gonna be a good one, just wait and see!"
Jumped out of bed and I ran outside, feeling so extra ecstatified!
It's the best day ever! (Best day ever) (2x)
I'm so busy, got nothing to do, spent the last two hours just tying my shoe.
Every flower, every grain of sand, is reaching out to shake my hand.
It's the best day ever! (Best day ever) (2x)
Sometimes the little things start closing in on me, when I'm feeling down, I wanna lose that frown, I stick my head out the window and I look around.
Those clouds don't scare me they can't disguise, this magic that's happened right before my eyes.
Soon Mr. Moon will be shining bright, so the best day ever can last all night.
Yeah, the best day ever's gonna last all night now.
It's the best day ever! (Best day ever) (4x)

Reprise scene

Andy Paley and Tom Kenny wrote an extra verse for the episode "Best Day Ever."

My perfect job starts my perfect day,
Then it's time to kick back relax and play.
Sing along, hear that happy sound.
Don't let those sour notes bring you down.
Squidward: Hey!
SpongeBob: That's where it's at!
Mr. Krabs: I'm not paying for that!
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)

Musical version

This version appears in the stage adaptation as the penultimate song before the curtain call, with additional music and lyrics by Jonathan Coulton and Tom Kitt and a brief reprise of "Tomorrow Is" in the intro.

SpongeBob: Just six more minutes left
We've done all we could do
And whatever happens next
I'm glad I'm here with you
Mister Sun came up and he smiled at me
Said "It's gonna be the best day, just wait and see"
Volcanic doomsday caught us unaware
But we're still here and Mister Sun's up there
Could be the best day ever
Sandy: Best day ever
SpongeBob: It still could be the best day ever
Patrick and Sandy: Best day ever
SpongeBob: I'm so lucky, got nothing to do
I could spend five minutes just being with you
Every flower, every grain of sand
Is reaching out to shake my hand
It's the best day ever
Company: The best day ever
SpongeBob: It's the best day ever
Company: The best day ever
SpongeBob: These past two days
The world's been closing in on me
But when I'm feeling down
I can lose that frown
Just stick my head out the window and look around
Lava doesn't scare me, it can't disguise
This magic that's happening right before my eyes
Whatever comes there's just one thing to do
Make the best day ever with all of you
Today's the best day ever with all of you now
Squidward: It's the best day ever
All: It's the best day ever (the best day ever)
It's the best day ever (the best day ever)
SpongeBob: It's the best day ever
Perch Perkins: Best day ever
SpongeBob: It's the best day ever
Perch Perkins: Best day ever
All: It's the best day ever
Squidward: There's one minute left.
Patrick: The sun's about to set.
Snady: Come on Eruptor Interruptor. Come on.
All: It's the best day ever (best day ever)
All: It's the best day ever (best day ever)
Five. Four. Three. Two.
