At school, Timmy and his friends are hearing Mr. Bickles talking about a school play, Timmy thinks its boring until Mr. Bickles says that Trixie is acting in the play. At home, Timmy is practicing his singing. Unfortunately,  Timmy's singing is so horrible that it breaks Cosmo and Wanda's fishbowl. Wanda questions Timmy horrible voice since Timmy is normally a good singer, Timmy explained that it's probably due to Trixie being in the play, he is nervous and it making his voice horrible.

Not sure what to do, Timmy then watches TV and he sees Chip Skylark singing so great that it repairs Cosmo and Wanda's broken fishbowl. Timmy then wishes to have Chip Skylark's voice and ends up having a beautiful voice. Unbeknownst to Timmy, his real voice has ended up in Chip Skylark. Timmy thanks Wanda, and practices with Chip's voice by singing, fixing the fishbowl. Suddenly Timmy's parents rush into his room thinking they heard Chip Skylark, but they only see Timmy. Timmy's parents then become depressed thinking that what they heard was just Timmy. As they leave, Mrs. Turner questions why she couldn't have given birth to Chip Skylark.

At school, Mr. Bickles and Trixie cannot find any people to participate until Timmy comes and sings so great that it repairs the picture that Mr. Bickles threw, and gets to participate. He gets the lead role and then finds out the truth. Teeth TV wants to make Timmy Turner the New Chip Skylark after a news report showed "The Old Chip Skylark" messing up the National anthem at Bankee Stadium; later booed and hit with debris like a heavy wet sponge and a ton of bricks and Chet Ubetcha announcing that Chip Skylark's voice stunk. Realizing this,  Timmy then asks Cosmo and Wanda why Chip got his voice saying that he only wanted his voice, and not exchanging them. Cosmo and Wanda say they know, but his voice had to go somewhere, and Chip Skylark was the only person who's mouth is open. Unfortunately, Timmy could not wish his voice back because Da Rules stated that vocal wishes had to be done in the voice of the godchild the godparents were assigned to. When confronted with the question of what should we do next, they turn to television where they get the answer to split up; one godparent would stay with Timmy while the other would be with Chip Skylark and listen for any cues that would lead him to Timmy Turner.

Sure enough, while Chip Skylark sat gloating about his awful voice and how no one liked him, he wished for a job and got one as a "Poorly Sung Pizza Delivery Boy". Meanwhile as an audience of hundreds shows up at the school musical, Timmy Turner realizes he is in a no win situation. If he stayed in the dressing room, he would not get this opportunity to sing alongside Trixie and if he went out into the audience and performed, the "New Chip Skylark would be stuck being the old Timmy Turner". After Chip shows up, they turn to television for what should they do next and they turn to television. On stage, a Wheel Of Coincidence is shown saying the words GET CHIP SKYLARK TO SAY I WISH I HAD T_MMY TURNERS VOICE, but instead of Timmy it's Tommy.

The musical goes off without a hitch; until Timmy Turner decides to recite the pledge of allegiance and do what TV said.
