"Adequate" is a song sung mainly by Groundskeeper Willie when Lisa was trying to turn him into a gentleman from a slob and trying to teach him manners.


Groundskeeper Willie:
All I want,
Is a place sumwhere.
Groundskeeper Willie:
That's it.
Maybe you could aim a little higher.
Groundskeeper Willie:
Well, let's see.
Oh, to have me shack rebuilt,
Get my rotten teeth all dril't,
Something on underneath me kilt.
Oh, wouldn't it be adequate?
Matching shoes for both me feet,
Dining on untainted meat,
A toilet what still has its seat.
Oh, wouldn't it be adequate?
Lisa and Bart:
Groundskeeper Willie:
Oh, wouldn't it be adequate?

Behind the Laughter[edit]

It is a parody of the song "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" from the musical My Fair Lady. It is part of the "My Fair Laddy (Medley)" track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.
