the filet-o-fish jingle + lyrics

In 2009, McDonald’s aired a television commercial featuring a Big Mouth Billy Bass-type character named Frankie the Fish. This “copyfish” sang an annoying jingle to a Casio keyboard-quality tune and made its way into our heads like a parasite.

With Lent going on right now, many restaurants have brought back their fish, shrimp, and seafood menu items. Mickey D’s has been promoting their Filet-O-Fish® with the accompanying jingle returning to the airwaves.

If you have been living in a cave for the past month, have never heard it, or want to make your ears bleed, then push Play to hear this infamous jingle:


McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish® Jingle
by Frankie the Fish

Recorded from 101.5 KROX FM on 2010-03-16 with a Mambo Clamp.

McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish® Jingle Lyrics

Gimme back that Filet-O-Fish®!
Gimme that fish! (ah!)

Gimme back that Filet-O-Fish®!
Gimme that fish!

What if it were you hanging up on this wall?
If it were you in that sandwich, you wouldn’t be laughing at all!

Click It Song (Explosion)

Click it. Click click it.
Click click it. Click it.

Click it if you’re tall.
Click click it if you’re short.
Click it in your automobile before you start.
Click it for your babies, toddlers, and kids.
Don’t just pretend to and say you did.

Click it if you’re a rebellious teen.
Click it even if your two-year-old screams.

Click it.

Click it if you’re driving one short block.
Click it if you’re driving around the clock.
Click it if you’re on time or running late.
Click it automatically. Don’t hesitate.

Is there ever going to be a time when I don’t have to click it?
The answer is “No! No! No! No! No!” You’ll get a ticket.

the thundercloud subs radio jingle

Fellow Austinites who tune into 101X have probably heard the annoying jingle that Thundercloud Subs is currently playing. I would have to say that it is currently tied with the Reid’s Cleaners jingle that is currently playing on television but loses severely to the local Gatti’s commercial (“Dial 4 5 9 22 22 and get a Mr. Gatti’s pizza delivered…real cheese… real h0tt…”). Thundercloud’s previous jingle was mostly tolerable at least.

Thundercloud Subs Radio Jingle lyrics

When I’m really hungry and I want something good,

I go to the Thundercloud in my neighborhood.

The sandwich makers are friends of mine ’cause I’m in there all the time.

When my stomach starts to grumble, you can bet I happily stumble into Thundercloud Subs!

For a hometown vibe with delicious grub…

Thundercloud Subs!

It’s a tasty place that everybody loves.

Armadillo lady on a date with a stallion,

She’s a Veggie Delight and he’s a New York Italian.

You gotta eat. You know it’s true.

While you’re in the neighborhood, here’s what you do…

You go to Thundercloud Subs!

(roast beef avocado)

Thundercloud Subs!

It was drilled into my brain for a couple days, but I have yet to succumb to its temptation by getting one of their delicious NY Italians. We’ll see.
