The SpongeBob SquarePants Musical - When the Going Gets Tough Lyrics

PLANKTON
"Give me some music, Karen."

KAREN
[BEATBOXING AGGRESSIVELY]

PLANKTON
This task force is for losers
I've got the perfect plan
Right now the getting's good so
Let's get out while we can
Look, lava's pretty hot
Let's give in to our fear
Disaster's on its way, that means
We can't spend no more time in here

You all know who I am
Evil genius, giant brain
You can't stop a volcano
I mean, are you all insane?
The ones who stay will all be vaporized without a doubt
Before that sucker blows, we gotta get the fish out! (fish out, fish out, fish out)

TOWNSPEOPLE
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And we gone! (and we gone!)

'Cause when the going gets tough (when the going gets tough)
That means it's time to get launched (that means it's time to get launched)
When the going gets tough (when the going gets tough)
That means it's time to get lost (that means it's time to get launched)
So let go
And begone
Let's be gone

SPONGEBOB
Hold on, Plankton!
I am simply shocked
Bikini Bottom is our home
I can't believe you talk about
Just walkin' out
Let's figure out
A way to stay today, tomorrow
I feel sorrow, I feel fear
But I'm not leaving here!
Who's with me?

PLANKTON
The simple sponge is talking?
Fascinating, do go on
The frycook has a plan?
Good luck with that, 'cause I'll be gone
You don't just wait around when you're under attack, no

KAREN
You run like crazy

PLANKTON
Out the back

PLANKTON & KAREN
Y'got one day left
Go home and pack

TOWNSPEOPLE
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And we gone! (and we gone!)

'Cause when the going gets tough (when the going gets tough)
That means it's time to get launched (that means it's time to get launched)
When the going gets tough (when the going gets tough)
That means it's time to get lost (that means it's time to get launched)
So let go
And begone
Let's be gone

MR. KRABS
"Hold on! This is another one of your schemes. You've got somethin' up your sleeve."

PLANKTON
"I am a one-celled organism. I don't even HAVE sleeves!"

KAREN
"Ohhh!"

TOWNSPEOPLE
"OHHHHH!!!"

Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And begone (and begone!)
Oh, let go (oh, let go!)
And we gone! (and we gone!)

'Cause when the going gets tough (when the going gets tough)
That means it's time to get launched (that means it's time to get launched)
When the going gets tough (when the going gets tough)
That means it's time to get lost (that means it's time to get launched)
So let go
And begone
Let's be gone
Let's be gone
So let go!
