Lyrics

Original

Pa Grape: It's time?

Scooter: It's time?

Jimmy Gourd: Did he just say it's time?

Percy Pea: We didn't have a lot of fun in the desert.

We didn't have a lot of fun in the sand.

Tom Grape: But saddle up your cow!

Percy Pea: It's all behind us now...

All:...because we're going to the Promised Land!

Jimmy Gourd: For years, I've eaten nothing but manna!

A dish that is filling, but bland.

Jerry Gourd: But now we're on our way...

Pa Grape: I'll have a cheese soufflé!

All: Because we're going to the Promised Land!

And in the Promised Land, it's gonna be so grand!

We'll have our fill from the grill as much as we can stand!

It'll be so great!

Oh, we can hardly wait!

Cause we're going to the Promised Land!

Scooter: The dining was lousy with Moses...But we'll be feasting with Josh in command!

Jimmy Gourd: I'd like a taco, please & some pintos and cheese!

All: Because we're going to the Promised Land!

[Repeat chorus 1 2/3 times until "It'll be so great" the second time]

Jimmy Gourd: With waffles on my plate!

All: Cause we're going to the Promised Land

Pa Grape: I hear it's flowing...

With milk & honey...

Jimmy Gourd: Sounds sticky.

All: Cause we're going to the Promised Land!

Yeah, we're going to the Promised Land!

Cuz' we're going to the Promised Land!!!

Trivia

Remarks

  • In the live show and More Sunday Morning Songs with Bob and Larry versions, Jimmy's lines "Did he just say it's time?" and "Sounds sticky" are omitted for unknown reasons.
  • One of the lyrics is "But saddle up your cow", even though the only animals present are sheep.

Goofs

  • During when Pa Grape states that he'll have a cheese soufflé, the blue trunk flashes.
  • At the end of the song, the color band holding Percy's wrap changes from red to gray.

Real World

  • Most of the song's visuals are inspired by the "Be Our Guest" sequence from Disney's 1991 animated film Beauty and the Beast.
