Lyrics[edit]

Episode version[edit]

Homer:
Around the house,
I never lift a finger.
As a husband and father,
I'm subpar.
I'd rather drink a beer
Than win Father of the Year.
I'm happy with things the way they are.
Lisa:
I'm getting used to never getting noticed.
Bart:
I'm stuck here till I can steal a car.
Marge:
The house is still a mess
And I'm going bald from stress.
Marge, Bart and Lisa:
But we're happy just the way we are.
Flanders:
They're not perfect,
But the Lord says, "Love thy neighbor."
Homer:
Shut up, Flanders!
Flanders:
Okely-dokely-doo.
Shary Bobbins:
Don't think it's sour grapes,
But you're all a bunch of apes,
And so I must be leaving you!

Album version[edit]

Marge:
Shary, you did the best you could, but you can't change this family and neither can I. From now on, I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy the ride.
Shary Bobbins:
But haven't I taught you people anything?
Homer:
No.
Lisa
No.
Bart:
No.
Marge:
No.
Maggie:
[suck suck suck]
Shary Bobbins:
So you like it this way?
Homer:
Indubitably.
Around the house,
I never lift a finger.
As a husband and father,
I'm subpar.
I'd rather drink a beer
Than win Father of the Year.
I'm happy with things the way they are.
Lisa:
I'm getting used to never getting noticed.
Bart:
I'm stuck here till I can steal a car.
Marge:
The house is still a mess
And I'm going bald from stress.
Marge, Bart and Lisa:
But we're happy just the way we are.
Flanders:
They're not perfect,
But the Lord says, "Love thy neighbor."
Homer:
Shut up, Flanders!
Flanders:
Okely-dokely-doo.
Shary Bobbins:
Don't think it's sour grapes,
But you're all a bunch of apes,
And so I must be leaving you!
Bart and Lisa:
Goodbye, Shary Bobbins.
Marge:
Thanks for everything.
Barney Gumble:
So long, Superman.
Lisa:
(to Homer) Do you think we'll ever see her again?
Homer:
I'm sure we will, honey.
(Contrary to his statement, she gets killed by a plane.)
I'm sure we will.
