The Lyrics

This song is based on, at least in my opinion, one of the greatest shows on Nickelodeon: "Hey Arnold". The cartoon premiered in 1996. I have watched it religiously since the premiere. Six chacters will be mentioned in this song: Arnold, Helga, Lila, Wolfgang, Harold, and Eugene. Helga is in Arnold's fourth grade class. Even though she treats him like a dolt, she has had a crush on him since the first episode. Lila is nicknamed "Mrs. Perfect." She is a red-haired, braided girl, who is so annoying. She is always trying to interfrere with the love of Helga's life. Harold is fat, and has a really loud voice. Wolfgang is in the fifth grade, and is also a bully. Eugene is called a jinx by everybody, because he is always falling, tripping, slipping, or is just generally unlucky. The first few lines, until the words about Eugene, may not crack you up, but I tried. Also, keep in mind that the word "Arn'", which is used in the second chorus, is an abbreviation of Arnold. (Weird Al Yankovic used "Lar'" as an abbreviation for Larry in one of his songs, "I Remember Larry.") Oh, one more character: Brainy. He stalks Helga all the time, breathing behind her back, and she always punches him.
It's been six long years
Since Arnold premiered
And I won't miss him tonight.

Gonna fix me a snack
And turn on my set
Watching this show is my right

We need to thank Arnold's creator
'Cause he gave us all a show to remember

That Eugene needs a crown
He's the king of falling down
If he sits down on a tack,
I'm so sure he'll hurt his crack.

That ol' Wolfgang's pretty strong
And his fists last pretty long
For a fifth-grader
He makes this show a show to remember

Don't touch that dial
It'll be a long while
Before we change the channel again.

Harold's kinda dumb.
Oh no, here he comes.
If only he were more slim.

Helga's mean ways can't last forever.
She makes this show a show to remember.

She dreamed of Arn', one night before
Fell down straight onto the floor
Now don't you come to me and ask,
"What's the spell she has been cast?"

Brainy stalks her from behind,
I wonder why she socked that guy right in the kisser.
She makes this show a show to remember.

I wish Lila would be gone,
Yeah, the place where she belongs
Is in a chamber.
That would make this show a show to remember.
