Lyrics

Original

Asparagus Singers: Larry-Boy! Larry-Boy!

Lean and mean.

Green machine.

Larry-Boy! Larry-Boy!

Outta sight.

Vege-mite.

Larry-Boy!

Lead Vocalist: Who do they call when Bumblyburg's in trouble?

Who's got the suit with super suction ears?

There's no need to panic, 'cause this guy's manic,

And you know that he'll save the day! (Ooooh-oh)

You need a hand, he's right there on the double.

Hey, hey, he's on the way.

Purple and yellow, he's one super fellow!

A man with style and plungers on his head.

It's easy to prove he's just one of the grooviest cats that you'll ever know! (Oooooh-oh)

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • Larry-Boy! and the Fib from Outer Space! features this instead of a Silly Song segment.
    • In the classroom edition of the episode, the Larry-Boy Theme Song was bizarrely listed in the credits, even though it doesn't appear in the video. The Silly Song I Love My Lips was featured as a substitute for it.
  • Vegemite is a dark brown food paste made from leftover yeast exacts with vegetables and spices that is popular in Australia.
  • Larry's costume at the end is a reference towards James "J.J"  Evans, a character from "Good Times", an American sitcom that lasted from 1974 to 1979. The costume would be reused on the cover of Bob & Larry Sing the 70s CD.
  • Nicole C. Mullen, the lead vocalist, performed a live version of this song during the premiere of Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed.
  • This song was included in the showtape that ran in Chuck E. Cheese's locations from September to November of 2000. Though rather than the full song, it was the condensed version from Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed.
  • In the full version of the song, the Asparagus singers turn their bodies from right to left during a few of the scenes when they sing "green machine." In the short version, they turn their bodies halfway to the right before turning them back in the previous direction from before.
  • An instrumental rendition of this song was heard at the end of The VeggieTales Show episode, LarryBoy and the Angry Eyebrows Trouble.
    • Coincidentally, a newer version of this song, composed and remixed by Michael Demus and featuring an unknown female vocalist, was originally going to be featured as the theme song for said episode. However, this was cut for unknown reasons and replaced by an instrumental theme composed by Kevin Manthei, entitled The LarryBoy Theme.
  • The song is likely a pastiche of Stevie Wonder. The brassy funk stylings resemble some of Stevie's biggest hits from the '70s such as "Superstition", "Sir Duke", and "I Wish". Furthermore, the verse in particular is melodically similar to "Living for the City", while the "Larry-Boy" chants in the chorus are reminiscent of the "Doo da wops" from "You Haven't Done Nothin'".

Goofs

  • Throughout the song, the Asparagus Singers' earrings are floating and are not connected, which Phil and Mike acknowledged in the commentary for the episode the song is featured on.
    • An Asparagus' beauty mark is mysteriously floating as well.
  • In the scenes where the Asparagus Singers sing "green machine" at the beginning and end of the song, the Asparagus Singer on the left jerks up a bit when turning left along with the other singers. This was later fixed in the shorter version from Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed.
