"The Road Song" is a song sung by SpongeBob, Patrick, Margaret, and Harold in the episode "A SquarePants Family Vacation." They sing this song in their car. Another variation of this song is "Above the Road."


"The Road Song"

Patrick: Road! Road! Road! Road! [repeated throughout song]
SpongeBob: When I'm on the road,
I see stuff going by.
When I'm on the road,
Patrick: I got a bug in my eye!
SpongeBob: When I'm on the road,
Margaret: Looks like clear skies ahead.
SpongeBob: When I'm on the road,
Harold: Please stop touching my head.
[Tempo faster, and Patrick says "road" every half a second]
Harold, Margaret, SpongeBob: Lets all sing the road song! [all clap twice]
SpongeBob: I wanna sing it all day long!
Harold, Margaret, SpongeBob: Lets all sing the road song! [all clap twice]
Let's all sing along!

"Above the Road"

Patrick: Road! Road! Road! Road! [repeated throughout song]
SpongeBob: When I'm above the road...
All I see is sky.
When I'm above the road...
On a giant fruit fly.
When I'm above the road...
SpongeBob and Patrick: He used to fill us with dread. [screams]
Spongebob: When I'm above the road...
I'm as snug as a baby bug in bed!
[Tempo faster, and Patrick says "road" faster]
Let's all sing the Above the Road Song! [clap clap]
I wanna sing it all day long!
Let's all sing the Above the Road song! [clap clap]
Let's all sing along!


  • In 2012, this song appeared in a Toyota Entune commercial.[1][2][3]
  • Patrick constantly saying, "road" is a reference to The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, where he also constantly says, "road" after he wonders where the road is.
  • In the Hebrew dub, the line "He used to fill us with dread" was translated to "Drinking washing powder" (שותים אבקת כביסה) although the label on the box still reads "dread" (אימה.)
