"Plan B" is a song sung by Remy (Patton Oswalt) and Emile (Peter Sohn) at the end of Your Friend the Rat. It encourages the viewers to see rats in a different way, and restates some of the themes and ideas that were taught earlier in the short film.


Emile (spoken):
Key of G, fellas. And swing it!
Remy and Emile:
We'll follow you to Mars
Or wherever you people go...
Low-pitched rat:
We rats are right there down below
Remy and Emile:
We've traveled near and far
With swamis, geishas, thugs and czars
In planes and boats and submarines
We've sailed from Liverpool to Queens
We're even in Qatar, or wherever you people go...
We all adore François Truffaut
Abandon musophobia
And embrace a new utopia:
Butterflies and puppy dogs
Summer evenings, crispy frogs
Remy and Emile:
Imagine if you will a world
Where women, rats
And men and children
Live in peace and harmony
We're even holding hands
We're dancing through the streets
And singing cabaret songs, ooh-la-la-la
Join with us we’ll make a human ratty wonderland
We'll help you tie your shoes
When you don't feel like bending over
And perhaps you'll take that trap
From out behind the pantry door
We'll say "Bonjour" and "How's the family?"
When we pass each other on the street
And just like that we won't be strangers anymore
So here we go to Mars
With our stories intertwined
And although once you tried to kill us
Now we know that you won’t mind
We'll journey through the stars
And whatever else may be...
We all hate that lousy flea...
That lousy flea...
