"You Can't Take No for an Answer" is an original song written for The Muppets Take Manhattan.

Dr. Teeth sings "You Can't Take No for an Answer" just after Kermit and his friends move to New York City from Danhurst College to try to get Manhattan Melodies on Broadway. The song is performed over a montage of clips showing the Muppets traversing across the city as they are rejected by producer after producer.

Neither the visuals nor the soundtrack album's track listing indicate that the musical accompaniment in the song is provided by The Electric Mayhem but it does feature Zoot on sax.
