Pink wishes she never journeyed to Bikini Bottom with the “SpongeBob SquarePants” song, “We’ve Got Scurvy.”
The Grammy-winning singer revealed which of her singles she considers her best and worst in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times.
After sharing that “So What” and “Get the Party Started” are among her best songs, Pink cited two tracks as her worst: 2012’s “True Love” and “We’ve Got Scurvy,” which appeared on the 2009 compilation album “SpongeBob’s Greatest Hits.”
The singer-songwriter initially answered with the “Truth About Love” track featuring British artist Lily Allen, explaining that it’s a “mean” song about her relationship with Carey Hart.
She added, “Carey’s got thick skin, but I owe him a love song.”
Pink then recalled the “SpongeBob” song “We’ve Got Scurvy,” which includes lyrics about the disease often associated with the history of sailors and sea travel.
“Oh wait, I did put out that ‘SpongeBob’ thing — ‘We’ve Got Scurvy,’” Pink said of the single, which was written as a sea shanty and references her 2001 hit “Get the Party Started.” “I wish I never did that. That was a real mistake.”
“We’ve Got Scurvy” was featured in the “SpongeBob SquarePants” episode “Truth or Square.” Pink also filmed a music video to accompany the single, in which she wore a pirate costume and appeared in a fish bowl and on a boat.
“Our gums are black. Our teeth are falling out. We’ve got spots on our back, so give it up and shout,” the lyrics read. “We’ve got scurvy. We need some vitamin C. We’ve got scurvy. We need a lemon tree.”
