Lyrics[edit]

Episode version[edit]

Little ditty 'bout Homer and Marge,
Her heart was as big as his stomach was large.
Oh yeah, they say love goes on,
Long after the grilled cheese sandwich is gone.

End credits version[edit]

"Weird Al":
That's the story 'bout Homer and Marge,
Two folks I helped out for a nominal charge.
After Homer went gay, they patched up their schism,
But the dude never dealt with his alcoholism.
"Weird Al" sayin',
Oh, yeah, the credits go on
Long after the viewer's interest is gone.
Oh, yeah, "Weird Al" had fun on this show,
Even if it was just a brief cameo.

Album version[edit]

Marge:
Homie, I tried to tell you how I feel but I can't find the right words. Maybe he can.
Homer:
"Weird Al" Yankovic?!
"Weird Al":
Homer, Marge wrote me about what happened and as soon as her check cleared, I was on the first reasonably priced flight here.
Homer:
Did you ever get the parody songs I sent you?
"Weird Al":
[sighs] Yes.
Homer:
Which one was better? "Living La Pizza Loca" or "Another Bites the Crust"?
"Weird Al":
They were pretty much the same, Homer.
Homer:
Yeah, like you and Allan Sherman.
"Weird Al":
Now here's a song I wrote for you.
Little ditty 'bout Homer and Marge,
Her heart was as big as his stomach was large.
Oh yeah, they say love goes on,
Long after the grilled cheese sandwich is gone.
Homer:
[chuckles] It would take a man of stone with a funnybone of steel to resist that.
Marge:
Homer, would you at least take me out on a date?
Homer:
I dunno, date a chick with kids.
Lisa:
Dad!
Homer:
Alright, alright.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The song that it is parodying is John Mellencamp's "Jack & Diane", a song that, coincidentally, Mellencamp initially turned "Weird Al" down for on a track on his first album originally titled "Chuck and Diane" but became "Buckingham Blues". Usually, "Weird Al" writes his own parody lyrics, but in this song, the parody lyrics were written by Matt Warburton. It is the sixteenth track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.
