No, Not Spongebob!!



Sung to the TV theme… parody words by Mark Graban

“Who's covered in lead and lives under the sea?
Spongebob! Squarepants!

Whose China-made goods may endanger your kids?
Spongebob! Squarepants!

Spongebob! Squarepants!

Then source it from China along with dangerous fish
Spongebob! Squarepants!

China Lead Paint! China Lead Paint! China Lead Paint!

China…. Lead Paint!
