  • "Mr. Fancy Pants" was released as the forty-fifth Thing a Week on August 11th, 2006. Jonathan has explained in many concerts that it was one of the pieces of music that rattled around in his head, made no sense whatsoever and didn't want to write, but wouldn't get out of his head until he did. - JoCopedia (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Chances are your pants are not as fancy as the pair
    of very fancy pants that Mr. Fancy Pants would wear
    when everyone is marching in the Fancy Pants parade,
    He's gonna pass the test, he's gonna be the best,
    the best in terms of pants

    You look in every catalog, you shop in every store
    'Cause even though you have a hundred pants, you want some more
    And suddenly you see the greatest pants you've ever seen!
    And even though you know
    it's gonna cost a lot of dough,
    you have to have the world's best pants!

    Say a little prayer for Mr. Fancy Pants
    The whole world knows it's only clothes
    And deep inside, he's sad...

    (Hey, Mr. Fancy Pants!)

    They make the big announcement and the trophy goes to you
    You thought you had some fancy pants, and now you know it's true
    You look at Mr. Fancy Pants and hold your trophy high,
    Everybody cheers while he's blinking back the tears,
    He doesn't even have the best pants

    Say a little prayer for Mr. Fancy Pants
    It's all he had but don't feel bad:
    he'd do the same to you...
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
