Full version

Krabby, Snubbull, Venonat,
Mankey, Chansey, and Zubat,
Slowking, Ditto, Butterfree,
Lugia, and Caterpie,
Oddish, Poliwag, Goldeen,
Elekid, and Nidoqueen,
Victreebel, and Magneton -
Everybody, Polkamon!

Aerodactyl, Seel, Machoke,
Marill, Moltres and Slowpoke,
Articuno, Ditto, Muk,
Flareon, and ol' Psyduck,
Cloyster, Kingler, Shellder, Gloom,
Snorlax, and of course Vileplume,
Zapdos, and Charmeleon -
Everybody, Polkamon!

It's time to Polka,
For Ponyta and Pidgey too.
Come on, put on your lederhosen,
And try not to step on little Pikachu.
You better grab yourself a partner,
Like Tentacruel or Bulbasaur. (Bulbasaur!)
Hold on a minute, there's still at least a hundred and twenty-seven more,

Including Ledyba and Omastar,
Jynx, Bellossom, and Magmar,
Geodude, and Arcanine,
Jigglypuff, and Mr. Mime.
Don't forget about Sandslash,
Exeggcute, and Rapidash,
Lickitung, and Porygon -
Everybody, Polkamon!

Everybody, Polkamon!

Everybody, Polkamon!

Trivia

  • Ditto is listed twice, probably a reference to its name and characteristics.
    • Both times it is on the third line, as the second one named.
  • The song states that there are "at least 127 more" Pokémon. This is because the number 27 is a running gag within Weird Al's songs.[1] However, there are only 103 more Pokémon left if only Generation I is counted, and if all Generation II Pokémon are included then there are 196 remaining Pokémon.
  • When Pokémon 2000 is aired in syndication, this is the only ending theme.
