The Muppets – Better Comes lyrics

"I Hope That Something Better Comes Along"
You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em.
There's sometin' irresistabl-ish about 'em.
We grin and bear it 'cause the nights are long.
I hope that somethin' better comes along.
It's no good complainin', and pointless to holler.
If she's a beauty she'll get under your collar.
She made a monkey out of old King Kong,
I hope that somethin' better comes along.
Ah, but what could be better than a saucy Irish Setter
When puppy love comes on strong?
Or a collie that's classy, a laddie needs a lassie,
A lover and wife gives you a new leash on life!
I don't mean to scare ya, my friend, but I betcha
Come "Father's Day" the litter bug's gonna getcha.
Ther urge is righteous but the face is wrong.
I hope that somethign' better comes along.
Still, it's fun when they're fetchin'
And agree to see an etchin'
That you keep at your lily pad.
There is no solution, it's part of evolution,
You'll soon hear the souls,
The little feet of tadpoles!
(Ah, Rowlf, tadpoles don't have feet!)
(Oh. Sorry about that.... 2, 3, 4)
There's no limitation to mixin' and matchin'
Some get an itchin' for a critter they've been scratchin'
A skunk was badgered the results were strong.
I hope that somethin' better,
I hope that somethin' better,
I hope that somethin' better comes along.
(Beep bop bidder da dum dum bum bum bum!)
