Song lyrics to I Hope That Somethin’ Better Comes Along, Music and Lyrics by Paul Williams and Kenny Ascher – from The Muppet Movie

Rowlf: Stay away from women, that’s my motto
Kermit: But I can’t
Rowlf: Neither can I, that’s my trouble

Rowlf:
You can’t live with ’em, you can’t live without ’em
There’s somethin’ irresistible-ish about ’em
We grin and bear it ’cause the nights are long
I hope that somethin’ better comes along

Kermit:
I see what you mean
It’s no good complainin’ and pointless to holler

Rowlf:
If she’s a beauty she’ll get under your collar

Kermit:
She made a monkey out of old King Kong

Both:
I hope that somethin’ better comes along

Rowlf:
Ah, but what could be better than a saucy Irish setter
When puppy love comes on strong?
Or a collie that’s classy, a laddie needs a lassie
A lover and wife gives you a new leash on life

Spoken:
Kermit: Uh, was that a new leash on life?
Rowlf: Oh yeah, sorry about that…2, 3, 4

Kermit:
I don’t mean to scare ya, my friend, but I betcha
Come “Father’s Day”, the litter bug’s gonna getcha;

Rowlf:
The urge is righteous, but the face is wrong

Both:
I hope that somethin’ better comes along

Kermit:
Still, it’s fun when they’re fetching
And agree to see an etching
That you keep at your lily pad
There is no solution, it’s part of evolution

Rowlf:
The pitter patter of soles
The little feet of tadpoles

[Spoken]
Kermit: Uh, Rowlf, tadpoles don’t have feet
Rowlf: Oh. Sorry about that…2, 3, 4

Kermit: There’s no limitation to mixin’ and matchin’

Rowlf: Some get an itchin’ for a critter they’ve been scratchin’
A skunk was badgered the results were strong
I hope that somethin’ better

Kermit:
I hope that somethin’ better

Both:
I hope that somethin’ better comes along

[Spoken]
Rowlf: It’s not often you see a guy that green that has the blues that bad
