Lyrics

Yakko:
Let us introduce ourselves,
O people of this land.
Wakko:
We are the Warner brothers...
Dot:
With sister close at hand.
Yakko:
I bet you all are wondering
Who is this young unknown?
And why am I inheriting
The Anvilanian throne?
Men:
Yes, why?
Women:
Yes, why?
Crowd:
Oh, please, please tell us why.
Yakko:
The bottom of the family tree
Starts with Yakko; that is me.
I'm the cousin to the sister
Of son's niece's brother
Of the uncle's daughter's father
Of the nephew's sister's mother
And my grandpa's only cousin
Was the King's daughter's sibling,
But they're all gone...
So that is why...
I am now your king!
Crowd:
He is now our king!
Yakko:
Yes, I am now your king!
Repeat what I just said!
Crowd:
Repeat what I just said!
Yakko:
And let the anvils ring!
(Anvil instrumental break with Anvil Chorus)
The Warners:
(to the tune of Old McDonald)
Old King Yakko's mania
(Anvils play "E-I-E-I-O")
Was for Anvilania!
(Anvils play "E-I-E-I-O")
Yakko:
So good citizens, I pledge to you
I'll do the best that I can do
For honor, country and the king...
Let the anvils ring!
Crowd:
Let the anvils ring!
Yakko:
Let the anvils ring!
Chorus:
Let the anvils ring!
