Gripp: Oh, here's a story of the Gerkin family
They're charmers who are farmers
With a pickle-y dynasty
The yummiest pickles that you ever did consume
But then one day a month ago
Their farm went ka-boom
Happy: Sky high that is. Pickle chips, pickle pieces. And a whole lotta relish.
Gripp: Well, the Gerkins were uncertain
What were they gonna do
They moved to Jollywood
Whoopty schmoodily doo
Where Queen Delightful rules and Starchy is their kin
But Starchy is against the move
Starchbottom: Where do I begin?
Happy: And that's the story of the Gerkins
Now it is the time to go
So we bid you a fond farewell
With a hi-pickle ho!
The song parodies the theme from The Beverly Hillbillies.
