Lyrics[edit]

Homer:
Everybody in the USA,
Hates their stupid neighbor.
He's Flanders, and he's really, really lame.
Flanders tried to wreck my song,
His views on birth control are wrong,
I hate his guts, and Flanders is his name!
Homer, Lenny and Carl:
F-L-A-N-R-D-S
Homer:
He's the man that I hate best,
I'd like to see his house go up in flames.
Lenny and Carl:
F-L-A,
Homer:
His name is Ned!
Lenny and Carl:
E-R-S,
Homer:
That's a stupid name!
It's worse than Frankenstein
Or Dr. No!
David Byrne:
You can't upset him even slightly,
He just smiles and nods politely,
Then goes home and worships nightly,
His Leftorium is an emporium of woe!
Lenny and Carl:
F-L-A,
Homer:
[mocking tone]Don't yell at Ned!
Lenny and Carl:
D-E-R,
Homer:
His wife is dead!
Everybody hates that stupid jerk!
David Byrne:
Springfield rocks with Homer's joyous loathing,
Filling clubs with angry Valentinos.
You don't have to move your feet,
Just hate Flanders to the disco beat.
Homer and David Byrne:
He's your perky, peppy, nightmare neighborino!
If you despise polite left-handers,
Homer, David and Ned:
Then I doubt you'll like Ned Flanders
Or his creepy little offspring, Rod and Todd.
Audience:
F-L-A!
Apu:
His name is Ned!
Audience:
E-R-S!
Apu:
He is so white bread!
Homer and Choir:
The smiling mustache geek who walks with God!
