"Farewell Sideshow Bob" is a song by Krusty performed at Sideshow Bob's funeral.


Farewell, Sideshow Bob.
Your shoes are empty and the stage is dark.
Bart stole your nitroglycerin,
And then your heart infarcked...
And it seems to me your loyal fans,
Oughta buy this DVD...
Of all your best-loved sketches,
On the Krusty show...
It's full of extra features,
And deleted scenes.
Like when you fell and split your pants,
And we saw your "Frank and Beans".

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The song "Farewell Sideshow Bob" and the performance of it at Sideshow Bob's funeral is a reference to "Candle in the Wind 1997" by Elton John, which was a tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales.
