The Best at Being the Worst is a song from the musical Pokémon Live. It is sung by the Team Rocket trio, Jessie, James, and Meowth, as the latter boosts his partners' spirits by telling them, while they may not be the best at succeeding, they are the best at "being the worst".

The song was performed by Lauren Kling, Andrew Rannells, the late Maddie Blaustein (as Meowth's voice) and Marton Fulop (as Meowth's costume performer).


We're the best at being the worst!

We're statistically number one
Yeah, a hundred percent...
Hey, that's never been done!

We're very good at being very bad
It's our rate of success
That's sadly been weak
We'll just have to accept
We're completely inept
But that's what makes us so unique

We're the Hindenburgs of crime
We crash and burn each and every time
Masters of disasters
No one screws up faster
At failure we shine!

We're an imperfect ten
Team Rocket's blasting off again!
So I guess we're just cursed
And you've heard it here first
We're the best at being the worst!

Who'd guess we'd get so far
By being completely sub-par?
As losers we raised the bar
Now we're superstars!


We're the best at being the worst!
At coming in last we're always the first
Our flaws are top drawer
We define Murphy's law

We're the best at being the worst!
We're totally immersed
And incredibly well-versed
We're the best at being the worst!
