Lyrics[edit]

Christmas in December[edit]

Homer:
Christmas in December!
Wow, wow, wow!
Give me tons of presents
Now, now, now!
Ned Flanders:
Hey, hey, Homer! Writing a new Christmas carol?
Homer:
Maybe.
Flanders:
Well, the Bible says it's fun to do stuff together.
There's a stranger in the manger,
And his name is love.
Take it, Homer.
[Homer shoves Flanders outside]
Oh, I got it. You want me to stay out here and work on the chorus.
Homer:
Flanders, I am a patient, reasonable, handsome man. But even I have my limits. Now beat it!
[Homer attempts to spray Flanders with water from the garden hose but the water ends up freezing]
Flanders:
Why, thank you, Homer. It's a Popsicle and my favorite flavor: plain.
[Flanders breaks off a piece and licks it, Homer gets furious and accidentally sprays and freezes himself]

Flanders Is His Name[edit]

Homer:
Lousy no good—How'm I supposed to write a song with that stupid jerk bothering me all the time and—? Wait a minute.
[plays three notes on the piano]
Everybody in the U.S.A.
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!
[cheering]

Everybody Hates Ned Flanders[edit]

David Byrne:
Excuse me, I've been researching indigenous folk music of Springfield, and I couldn't help overhearing your delightfully cruel hate song.
Carl:
David Byrne?!
Moe Szyslak:
Singer, artist, composer, director, Talking Head...
David Byrne:
And, I used to wrestle under the name "El Diablo."
Lenny:
I thought that was Philip Glass.
David Byrne:
Yeah, he wishes.
Homer:
Hey, Mister? If you like my song so much, would you like to buy a tape? It's already rewound.
David Byrne:
No thanks. But I would like to sing it with you and produce it.
Homer:
Fine.
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!
Homer, David and Ned:
If you despise polite left-handers,
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 moustache geek who walks with God!
Reverend Lovejoy:
Mass dismissed.

William Shatner's Version[edit]

Bill:
We're half-way through our same song six-pack!
Marty:
Now let's hear William Shatner's version of "Everybody Hates Ned Flanders"!
Marge:
Another cover? My God, let it die.
William Shatner:
Everybody...
In the U.S...
A...
Hates... their...
Stupid... neighbor...
He's the Flanders... man...
The Flanders, man...
Flanders...
Marge:
I am so sick of that song!
Homer:
Me too -- I've come to hate my own creation. Now I know how God feels.

El Hombre Estupido[edit]

Homer:
This dude ranch is gonna be great. A whole week without hearing that stupid song.
David Byrne:
You won't think it's stupid when you hear the Extended Salsa Mix!
¡No nos gusta Flanders!
¡Es un hombre estúpido!
¡No nos gusta Flanders!
Marge:'
Watch it, Mr. Byrne! You'll slip on the Simoniz!
David Byrne:
Simoniz?
Moe:
Woah. Woah!
David Byrne:
Can you take me to the hospital?
Moe:
Yeah, no problem.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The track listing for The Simpsons: Testify has different names for the songs than the episode credits, missing out "Christmas in December" and calling "El Hombre Estupido" the Salsa Version.
