  • Ripped Pants
When I (rip) ripped...my pants,
I thought that I had everybody on my side,
But then I went and blew it...all skyhigh
And now she won't even spare...a passing glance
All just because I (rip)...ripped my pants
(All losers on beach)
When big Larry came round just to put him down,
SpongeBob turned into a clown
And no girl ever wants to dance,
With the fool who went and... (rip) ripped his pants
I know I shouldn't mope around, I shouldn't curse,
But the pain feels so much worse.
Cause' winding up with no-one is a lot less fun
Than a burn from the sun
(Losers on beach 1 and 2)
Or sand in your buns!
Now I learnt a lesson I won't soon forget,
So listen and you won't regret
Be true to yourself,
Don't miss your chance
And you won't end up like the fool...who...ripped..his..pants!

Sandy laughs at SpongeBob.

SpongeBob does silly stuff to make Sandy laugh, but then Larry the Lobster comes and asks Sandy if she wants to go lift some weights. A left out SpongeBob tries to get more attention by lifting marshmallows. But SpongeBob, being a very wimpy sponge, accidentally rips his pants in the process. Feeling embarrassed, the sponge sadly leaves. But after finding out that people thought he was funny when he ripped his pants, decided to start ripping his pants on purpose. People soon tire of the joke, but Spongebob, not realising, pushes it too far and pretends to drown. When he reveals it as a joke, everybody leaves, angry at SpongeBob. Seeing that he has driven all his friends away, he asks himself if he is the biggest loser on the beach. This question is answered by three other people, who each believe they are the biggest losers on the beach. They ask Spongebob what happened to him, and he tells his story through a song. Everybody on the beach sees this, and understands how he feels, so they love him again. About to sign Larry's pants, SpongeBob's underwear rips off completely.
