Appearances

The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa

"Yummy Yummy Yummy" is a bubblegum pop song by Arthur Resnick and Joey Levine, first recorded by Ohio Express in 1968. Their version reached #4 in the U.S. Pop Singles chart in June and #5 in the UK Singles Chart. It has since been covered by many artists. Ohio Express was a studio concoction and none of the "official" members appear on the record. Joey Levine sang lead vocals.

Timon and Pumbaa sang a version of the song with altered lyrics in a music video featured at the end of the 11th episode of The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa, as they express their love for eating bugs. As they perform the song, Timon and Pumbaa fight over a single bug, only to find out at the end that the bug they've been pursuing is a stinkbug. The music video was produced and directed by Steve Moore and aired on October 14, 1995, along with "Madagascar About You" and "Truth or Zaire".

Lyrics

Timon
Yummy, yummy, yummy, I've got bugs in my tummy
And I feel like munching you

Pumbaa:
Bugs are such a sweet thing
Good enough to eat thing
And that's what I'm gonna do

Timon:
Oooh I love to hold ya
Oooh I love to kiss ya
Oooh I love 'em so

Pumbaa:
Sweet, sweeter than sugar
Oh bugs, I won't let them go

Bugs:
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Timon:
Yummy, yummy, yummy, I've got bugs in my tummy
And as sickening as it may seem

Pumbaa:
Nutrition's what their givin'
It's what keeps me livin'
And they taste like peaches and cream
Kinda like sugar

Timon:
Kinda like spices
Kinda like --ooh!

Pumbaa:
What they do..
Kinda sounds funny

Timon:
But love, honey

Both:
Honey I love you..
Ba da ba-da-da-da da
Ba da da da da ba-da-da-daaaah!

Timon:
Yummy, yummy, yummy, I've got bugs in my tummy

Pumbaa:
And one more will satisfy

Timon:
Love, you're such a sweet thing

Pumbaa:
Good enough to eat thing

Timon:
Sweet thing that ain't no lie

Pumbaa:
I love to hold ya
Love to kiss ya

Timon:
Oh! I love ya so

Bug:
Noooo!

Timon:
Oh love is sweeter, sweeter than sugar
Oh love I won't let -- STINK BUG!
