Won't you help sing along?
SpongeBob's had 100 adventures
Let's find out what do you remember? So many laughs
It's tough to keep track, so listen to the song and take a trip back
It's SpongeBob's history
SpongeBob's history
SpongeBob's history song
It all started out at the Krusty Krab
SpongeBob wanted a job and he wanted one bad
Then SpongeBob met up with a true Texas rodent
And found out what Sandy breathed was pretty darn potent
Then he learned the secret to getting lots of laughs
When you want to get attention just split your pants
If a leisure afternoon is what you've been wishin'
Grab a net and head out for some jelly fishin'
Maniacal Plankton put our heroes in a bind
Using evil genius tricks to control SpongeBob's mind
Then SpongeBob was eaten out of house and home
All thanks to a horde of hungry nematodes
If you want to get strong get down to the gym and hustle
Or maybe just fake it with inflatable muscle
SpongeBob came down with a case of the suds
But who needs a doctor when you got your best bud?

Patrick: Let's take it from the top
And remember when Pearl worked at the Krusty Krab?
We found out Eugene was a whale's dad
And Patrick was jealous of his friend's trophy shelf
Till he got a trophy doing nothing more than anyone else
When SpongeBob met Bubble Buddy, nobody could cope
Who knew it could be so much trouble having a friend that's made out of soap?
Thanks to SpongeBob and Patrick we can happily confirm
All the friendship one needs can be found in a worm
Now please stand by for important information
Never bug a squirrel in the midst of hibernation
But you know what it is that bugs Sandy most?
Her best friend onstage telling squirrel jokes
There was a brouhaha when SpongeBob found that pencil
Who knew such terror could come from a writing utensil?
When Mr. Krabs falls in love, he spends too much
But who could spare any expense for a beaut like Mrs. Puff?

SpongeBob forgot to feed his snail and much to his dismay
By the time he remembered Gary ran away
And when SpongeBob and Squidward became extra close
SquidBob TentaclePants, man, that's gross
When his friends need to crash, SpongeBob's happy to host
Unless it's Flying Dutchman, a screaming pirate ghost
After touching some goop, SpongeBob got real sick
And so did half of Bikini Bottom, oh, well, that's ick.
When love's in the air, sea critters go batty
Especially when they've fallen for a perfect Krabby Patty
Then the gang went to Atlantis just to see a bubble
They took a picture and it popped, Uh-oh, that's trouble
Curious about SpongeBob's ancestors? Well you're in luck
Cause there once was a hayseed and his name was Buck
Then SpongeBob took a big old lump to the head
He couldn't remember his name and he couldn't remember his friends
He moved away from home and forgot where he belonged
Maybe SpongeBob SquarePants should've listened to this song
It's the SpongeBob history
SpongeBob history

  • Although it is meant to based on the first 100 episodes of SpongeBob, not all of the episodes are referenced. The song itself does not reference any season 3 episodes except for "Party Pooper Pants," but scenes from other episodes from that season appear as footage.
