Lyrics

Episode version

Walk the platypus walk

Single version

Walk the platypus walk,
Talk the platypus talk. [Perry chatters]
Walk the platypus walk,
Talk the platypus talk. [Perry chatters]
Walk the platypus walk,
Talk the platypus talk.

If you're web-footed, duckbilled and semi-aquatic,
If you're soft, cool, fuzzy and charismatic,
Disappear by day kinda enigmatic
Then you just might be a plata-fanatic.

(Walk the platypus walk)
You can be a platypus who doesn't do much
Or put on your fedora and come through in the clutch
Get yourself a mission, fire up your jetpack
Keep your duckbill forward and your beaver tail back.

Walk the platypus walk, [Perry chatters]
Talk the platypus talk.
Walk the platypus walk,
Keep your duckbill forward and your beaver tail back!
[Perry chatters]
