Lyrics[edit]

I'm Talking' Springfield[edit]

Homer:
Here you go, honey. Sing this.
Lisa:
How did you write a song so quickly?
Homer:
Much of the tune is plagiarized. Now go, go, go!
Lisa:
I've been to Paris and London,
And Tokyo town,
But one crazy 'berg,
Has 'em all beat hands down.
Sideshow Mel:
Jacksonville?
Lisa:
I'm talkin' Springfield!
You can buy chimichangas.
Talkin' Springfield!
The chicks with fake gazongas?
There's tires on fire,
A guy named Apu,
And Skinner and Grampa,
And old Disco Stu.
Did I forget to mention you?
Lenny:
"You"? That's me!
Lisa:
I'm talkin' Springfield,
Where nobody sucks!
...Except for Flanders...
[cheers and applause]
Krusty:
Aaaah! I get it, I get it! She's good! Looks like they love ya, kid. And the audience is always right! I wish I could say the same about my stockbroker.

My Kitty Died[edit]

Homer:
Don't worry, honey. The song I wrote you is so shmaltzy, it'll make "Moon River" sound like a farting orangutan!
Lisa [sadly]:
My kitty died
On Christmas Eve.
Daddy told me to be brave.
But instead of singing carols,
I was digging Snowball's grave.
[everyone sobs]
Lenny:
Oh God, I miss Lisa's cat so much.

Always My Dad[edit]

Krusty:
This is our final night. Thirty contestants have already fallen through our Buzz Cola trap door.
[kids make agonized moans]
Krusty:
Hey! You're supposed to clean this out every night! Whaddaya mean, talk to your shop steward? Eh. Now let's welcome the first of our two finalists... Lisa Simpson!
Lisa:
Ladies and gentlemen, I have a confession to make. I didn't have my usual songwriter tonight, so I took a stab at writing my own song. Something that expresses what's really in my heart. Bernie, if you please.
I'm in the final two,
I should be happy.
But all I want to do,
Is spend more time,
With my pappy.
Now that you're gone, Dad,
I miss you so much.
And your threats against teamsters,
And techies and such.
Your management style,
Is like Attila the Hun.
You were vicious, malicious,
But you got the job done.
I'm sorry I hurt you,
Now please don't be sad.
You're no longer my coach,
But you're always my dad.
[audience cheers and applauds]
Krusty:
Even the Applause-O-Meter is crying. Oh God, that's battery acid! Oh, ooh, oww!

Privileged Boy[edit]

Homer:
Look, Cameron's about to sing the song I wrote for him! [chuckles] He's about to learn the most important lesson in the music business: Don't trust people in the music business.
Cameron:
I'm a privileged boy,
It's great, I gotta tell ya!
Privileged boy,
My dad can buy and sell ya!
It really doesn't matter,
That you're on the list in front of me,
I'm gonna get your table,
'Cuz I always tip the maitre d'.
And then I'll go to Yale,
Because I am a legacy!
I'm better than you!
[audience boos]
Carl:
You suck, Johnny Rainbow!
Lenny:
I believed in you!
