Narrator: And now it's time for Silly Songs with Larry, the part of the show where Larry comes out and sings a Silly Song. We join Larry as he follows the tragic saga of Barbara Manatee, in the daytime drama, "Endangered Love."

 

Larry: Barbara Manatee (Manatee, Manatee)

You are the one for me (one for me, one for me)

Sent from up above (up above, up above)

You are the one I love (I love, I love, I love!)

 

Bill: Please don't cry Barbara

You're a nice Manatee

You've been so good to me

But I must go into the world and do noble things for the good of all

And you can't come because you don't speak French

au revoir!

 

Barbara: But if you leave, Bill

Who will take me to the ball?

Who's going to take me to the ball, Bill?

I have a new dress and shoes

And new manatee lipstick

Who will take me to the ball?

 

Larry: I'll take you to the ball, Barbara Manatee!

 

Barbara: Please don't go!

 

Bill: I must!

 

Barbara: Don't go!

 

Bill: I must!

 

Barbara: Don't!

 

Bill: Must!

 

Barbara: Donít, don't!

 

Bill: Must, must!

 

Larry: Barbara Manatee (Manatee, Manatee)

You are the one for me (one for me, one for me)

Sent from up above (a manatee from heaven)

You are the one I love

 

Barbara Manatee (Manatee, Manatee)

I'll be your mon amie (mon amie, mon amie)

I'll take you to the ball (to the ball, to the ball)

I hope you're not too tall (or you'll have trouble dancing)

 

Barbara: Bill, I've learned French!

 

Bill: You have?

 

Barbara: Mais, oui. Je suis Manatee. See?

 

Bill: Oui, oui, mon amie

I always knew you could

I really hoped you would

Now can we go into the world and do noble things for the good of all?

 

Barbara: Yes, but first...

Will you take me to the ball?

Oh, Bill, will you take me to the ball?

 

Bill: ....I can't dance

 

Barbara: You can't!?

 

Bill: No.

 

Barbara: I must go!

 

Bill: Please don't go!

 

Barbara: I must!

 

Bill: Don't go!

 

Barbara: I must!

 

Bill: Don't!

 

Barbara: Must!

 

Bill: Donít, don't!

 

Barbara: Must, must!

 

Larry: Barbara Manatee (Manatee, Manatee)

you are the one--

 

Bob: Larry...what are you doing?

 

Larry: Just...watching a little TV...Bob.

 

Bob: Well....maybe you should read a book.

 

Larry: Yeah. Okay.

 

Narrator: This has been Silly Songs with Larry. Tune in next time to hear Bill say:

 

Bill: Oh Barbara, I've learned to dance!

 

Barbara: Oh, Bill!
