The Noodle Dance

Noodle, use your noodle

Noodle, do the noodle dance

Solve a problem, it's no strain

Use your noodle that's your brain

Noodle, use your noodle

Noodle, do the noodle dance

There's an answer you can find

Use your noodle, that's your mind

In a bind, just use your mind

Use your noodle!

Out of the Box Ending Song

So long farewell to you my friend,

Goodbye for now until we meet again.

I said so long farewell to you my friend,

Goodbye for now until we meet again.

It's been great to play and sing together... in the box!

And now it's time to say goodbye...

So long farewell to you my friend,

Goodbye for now until we meet a-gaaain!!

Lazy Town Opening Theme song

52 episodes were created from 2004 - 2007. Sportucus and Stephanie help the people of Lazytown learn about eating right and exercising, while Robbie Rotten is always trying to prevent them.

I never realized this was created by Lazytown Entertainment in Iceland. Sportucus is played by Magnus Scheving (an aerobic gymnist who won many awards). He is also the CEO, creator, and co-founder of LazyTown Entertainment.

Bing Bang Lyrics

Bing Bang Diggly Dong

First thing that I say after I wake up

Bing Bang Diggly Dong

I say those words before I go to sleep

Get on up it's time to dance yeah

It's so much fun being up on our feet

So we go up up

To the top

Move around and clap your hands together

Down down turn around

Having fun is what it's all about

Bing Bang Diggly Dong

Funny words I sing when I am dancing

Bing Bang Diggly Dong

Silly words that can mean anything

Get on up it's time to dance yeah

It's so much fun being up on our feet

So we go up up

To the top

Move around and clap your hands together

Down down turn around

Having fun is what it's all about

Oh 1, 2 me and you

Move around and clap your hands together

3, 4 on the floor

Having fun is what it's all about
