(SPONGEBOB)
Sure I spend my days floating around
Head in the bubbles and my feet on the ground
But there is more to me than just my name
Give me a chance and I could change the game
And maybe one day Mr. Krabs will say
"The Krusty Krab's yours, it's your lucky day!"
That is what I've always wanted
Then I can finally say I've done it

Let me have adventure, be a contender and more

(COMPANY)
'Cause you're not a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB)
I wish he'd see I'm not just the sponge next door

(COMPANY)
No you're not a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB)
There's gotta be a better way
A way to save this town I love
But how can I stop the end of the world?
Am I just a simple sponge?

(COMPANY)
No you're not a simple sponge (No you're not a simple sponge)

(SPONGEBOB)
So what if I'm a sponge? It's what I wanna be
There isn't anyone who stretches like me
Employee of the month two years in a row
Undisputed master of my own dojo
And everyone here knows that they can depend
On this expert jellyfisher who's a trusted friend
I can eat a lot of ice cream
I can even play my nose like...

Let me have adventure, be a contender and more

(COMPANY)
'Cause you're not a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB)
Can't he see I'm not just the sponge next door?

(COMPANY)
No you're not a simple...

(SPONGEBOB & COMPANY)
I wish that I could turn back time
I never thought my world could end
I only wanna hang out with my friends
But fear I fear is dragging us down
And now there's panic that's run amok in my simple town

(COMPANY)
No, no, no, no, no

(SPONGEBOB)
No!
Just give me adventure, I'm a contender and more

(COMPANY)
'Cause you're not a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB)
I will show I'm not just the sponge next door

(COMPANY)
No, you're not a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB)
I'm gonna find a better way
A way to save the life I love
And I am gonna stop the end of the...

(KRABS)
No!
You're just a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB, spoken)
You're wrong, Mr. Krabs! I'll find a way to stop that volcano from erupting!

(KRABS)
You are still a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB, spoken)
I'll use science like Sandy said! I'm gonna need her on the team!

(KRABS)
'Cause you're just a simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB, spoken)
And Patrick too! He's super strong! We'll be the best team ever. Sandy's brains, plus Patrick's brawn, plus my...

(KRABS)
Yes, a very simple sponge

(SPONGEBOB, spoken)
I'm not sure what my thing is, but that won't stop me! When the going gets tough, this sponge gets going!
(sung)
No I'm not a simple sponge

(COMPANY)
Let me have adventure, be a contender and more

(SPONGEBOB)
I am not a simple sponge

(COMPANY)
They will see you're not just the sponge next door

(SPONGEBOB & COMPANY)
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Now at last I have found a way
A way to save this town I love
I am not a simple sponge!
