In the episode "Double Date Trouble", when Donkey Kong is about to answer Cranky Kong's call and leaves Diddy Kong and Candy Kong behind, they resume their argument about who gets to spend time with him by singing "That's Why He'd Rather Be With Me".


DIDDY:

I don't know what you got brewin'

But I know what DK's doin'

He's gonna spend time watchin' monkey movies with me

CANDY:

Oh, please, I don't think so

My man's gonna eat like a beast

'Cause I prepared a banana feast

I'm gonna treat him like the king he is

DIDDY:

Hah! We'll see about that!

You don't seem to understand

CANDY:

Get it through your head if you can

Didn't you see the look in his eyes

DIDDY:

Girl, it's time for you to get wise

BOTH:

That's why he'd rather be with me

CANDY:

I know what he wants 'cause a girl can tell

DIDDY:

Only a buddy knows him well

CANDY:

My love is the food that feeds his heart

DIDDY:

With snacks and sodas, you'll never tear us apart

CANDY:

I'll tell you what he needs is sweet romance

DIDDY:

Up against TV, you don't stand a chance

CANDY:

He gave me that look

DIDDY:

That was dirt in his eye

CANDY:

I can read him like a book

DIDDY:

Guys will always be guys

CANDY:

He wants me, you pint-sized ape

DIDDY:

It's time for me to set you straight

BOTH:

That's why he'd rather be with me

CANDY:

That's why he'd rather be with me

BOTH:

That's why he'd rather be with me

DIDDY:

Hah! See what I mean! Hahahah!

BOTH:

That's why he'd rather be with me

CANDY:

With you?

DIDDY:

Yeah, me.

CANDY:

We'll see.

BOTH:

That's why he'd rather be with me.
