MST3k 302 Tibby the Turtle.png

"Tibby, Oh Tibby" is a song sung by Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot during Experiment #302. Inspired by the film Gamera, Tom has gotten a pet turtle named Tibby and he sings the song to him.


Oh, Tibby, my Tibby
My heart is a mess
I don't have a protective shell
Over my chest.

So people can hurt me
With the cruel things they do
Yet somehow, sweet Tibby
I know you hurt, too.

Oh, Tibby, my Tibby
Reality's hard
So Tibby
Let's play in the yard

Oh, Tibby, Oh, Tibby
He runs like the wind
A couple of inches
And then back again

Crow T. Robot: Uh, may I take a verse?
Tom Servo: Well, if you feel it, Crow.
Crow T. Robot: Oh, I do. Ahem!
Tom Servo: Well, Crow, then by all means. Join me, won't you?
Crow T. Robot: (off key and tempo) 5, 6, 7, 8.


Tom Servo: It's TIBBY! TIBBY!
Crow T. Robot: Oh, sorry. Sorry. Sorry.

I love you my fine little fella
Even though you gave the whole family salmonella

[lights come up, Joel enters, music ends]

Tom Servo: No! No! It's not their fault! It isn't their fault! Crow, you take everything good and--! You rip my heart out!!! (sobs)
Crow T. Robot: Geez, I'm--I'm sorry.
Joel Robinson: C'mon, Crow, let him finish his song.
Crow T. Robot: Oh, okay.
Joel Robinson: Go ahead, Tom.
Crow T. Robot: It's just a stupid ol' turtle..
Joel Robinson: Go ahead, Tom..

[lights dim, spotlight on Tibby]

Tom Servo: Thank you, Cambot.

[music begins again]

Tibby, my Tibby
Your blood may be cold
But I know that your heart
Burns as hot as a coal!

It burns with the love
Only turtles can feel
Is our love real?

Tom Servo: My Tibby, I'll never let the dog nose around your bowl, but you know that don't you? I can see it in your beady, little eyes! If you high-center on your rock, Tibby, I'll be there to help you down!

The toilet's not your fate, friend!
You'll always run free
Long as you have me!

[music ends]

Crow T. Robot: Do you realize a robot, just sang a love song to a turtle?
Joel Robinson: That was really good, Tom.
Tom Servo: Thank you.
Joel Robinson: We got Commercial Sign.
