"One Good Turn" is a song from "Who's On First?", one of the original Johnny and the Sprites shorts. It is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny, Leslie Carrara as Ginger and Tim Lagasse as Basil. It is about Ginger and Basil both wanting Johnny to do different things with them and Johnny helping them to see that he can only do them both if they take turns. The song was composed and written by Michael Patrick Walker.

Lyrics

Johnny:
You both wanna do such different things

Ginger:
Yeah, I wanna play basketball.

Basil:
I wanna read about shrubs.

Johnny:
And I would love to do both of them with you
But if I read while I play basketball
I'll lose my place or I'll trip and fall
So I think that there's only one thing we can do
You can take turns

Ginger:
Take turns? That doesn't sound like fun. Let's just play basketball!

Basil:
But what about my book?

Johnny:
Look, you guys. Taking turns isn't so bad. I'll show you.
Both of you sing something you like to sing

Basil / Ginger:
I love shrubs that are historical / I love basketball

Johnny:
Wow.
You gotta admit that didn't sound very good

Ginger:
No, it didn't.

Basil:
Well, I guess not...

Johnny:
But if you sing first

Ginger:
I love basketball

Johnny:
And you sing next

Basil:
I love shrubs that are historical

Johnny:
That sounded great
Just like I knew it would
'Cause you took turns

Ginger:
Well, that did sound pretty good.

Basil:
It did.

Johnny:
If you take turns then you both get to do what you want

Basil:
He's got a point.

Ginger:
What do you think?

Basil:
If we take turns then we both get to do
Your turn!

Ginger:
If we take turns then we both get to do
Your turn!

Johnny:
If you take turns then you both get to do what you want

Johnny, Basil and Ginger:
If we take turns!
