"Bad Day to Be a Mud Troll" is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode "Johnny the Mud Troll". In the song, Johnny has been turned into a magical creature known as a "mud troll" and sings about how bad this is for him. He is accompanied by the "fuzzies," small, furry creatures that live in his backyard and in Grotto's Grove. The song is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny.


It's a bad day to be a mud troll
Got lots of things to do
It's a bad day to be a mud troll
Turn me back, I'm asking you

Icky and sticky and goopy and sloppy
Just don't work, okay?
It's a bad, bad, bad day to be a mud troll

Icky, sticky, goopy, sloppy, yicky, yucky mud

It's a bad day to be a mud troll
Don't mean to be unkind
But hangin' in a mud hole
Isn't what I had in mind

Mushy and slurpy and gushy and burpy
Are not the Johnny way
It's a bad, bad, bad day
To be a mud troll

Mushy, slurpy, gushy, burpy
Sitting there in the mud

I don't want to go squishy, squash, squash, squash
I don't want to go sloppy, slop, slop, slop
No mud pie
Here's mud in my eye
Ginger, the mud has got to stop
It's got to stop

It's a bad day to be a mud troll
A big old sloppy slob
It's a bad day to be a mud troll
Good for my skin
Bad for my job

It's kind of fun
To go splat in the sun
When you've got time to play
But I don't have time today
To be a mud troll

Icky, sticky, goopy, gloppy, yicky, yucky mud

It's such a bad, bad day
To be a mud troll.
