Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle

  • YouTube Recording

    Bullwinkle wants to sing a happy song, but Underdog and Rocky challenge him to sing something sad. So Bullwinkle sings a sad song about a lonely and freezing moose who discovers there's a restaurant named after him! For a happy ending, he sings about taking up the banjo and becoming the star that he is. Boris doesn't care for the happy ending, but Rocky uses the opportunity to provide a plug about Bullwinkle's desserts!

    Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, it's show time! And here's our star, that snappy happy do-happy chappy, the monarch of mirth, Bullwinkle!

    Bullwinkle: Heidi! Right now we're gonna do a happy little song about...

    Underdog: Do we have to?

    Bullwinkle: Say what?

    Underdog: Do we have to do another happy little song? How come we never get to do a sad little song?

    Rocky: Yeah Bullwinkle! Something that'll pluck at your old heartstrings!

    Bullwinkle: Well if you want your old heartstrings plucked, I gotta song that's gonna strum 'em like a Ukululu!

    Rocky: A real sad song?

    Bullwinkle: Prepare to shed a tear Rocky! Okay fellers, here we go (voice breaks)

    In a swamp by the river a moose stood alone
    Singing 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    And I said to him, “Moosie, pray why do you moan?”
    Singing 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    You sound like a foghorn whenever you talk and it's seeming off-key, you could win in a walk
    Tell me why do you utter that terrible squawk?
    Of 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle

    He waggled his antlers to shake off the snow
    Singing 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    And the icicles formed on his dewlap below
    Oh 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    In his big growing eyeball a tiny tear rolls
    And it ran down his cheek 'tward the end of his nose
    But the trip was too long and the little thing froze
    Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle!

    I'm Bullwinkle Moose, I'm a big star you see
    Singing 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    And my programs are running on color TV
    Oh 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    But they're all of 'em reruns, they don't pay a thing
    So I'm back in the swamp where the icicles cling
    And to try to keep warm I stand up here and sing
    Oh 'winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle

    So I said to him Bullwinkle don't you feel blue
    With your winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle
    There's a wonderful restaurant named after you
    Called winkle's, Bullwinkle's, Bullwinkle's

    So I took up the banjo and now with delight
    I am playing and singing here every night
    It's a sad little song but it turned out alright
    For winkle, Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle!

    (music speeds up)

    Boris: Boo! Boo!

    Natasha: Boris! You don't like sad songs?

    Boris: I love sad songs! I just can't stand happy endings!

    Rocky: Well if you like happy endings, you're gonna love our desserts! Try 'em, and we'll be back after the Fantasy Fountain Show!
