Lyrics[edit]

Tune-Up[edit]

Bart:
Dad, taking the family to opening night is the nicest thing you've ever done for us.
Homer:
Or will ever do.
Lisa:
I can't wait to see this re-imagining of Itchy & Scratchy by avant-garde director Juliana Krellner.
Homer:
Hey, it says here "the book" was written by Tom Stoppard. This isn't a book, it's a play! [laughs] Book.

King of Cats Opening[edit]

African Man:
Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamishtanaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, kimanee sayfaloooooooooooooor...
Old Cat:
All hail the king of the cats.
Cast:
Sayfalooooooor, sayfaloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooor...
Marge:
[gasps] They're coming down the aisles! What if they want to interact with me? Looking through my purse, looking through my purse, keep walking, monkey!
Bart:
Don't worry, Mom, they all pass by.
Marge:
Oh thank God. [a monkey immediately walks up and starts to "talk" to her. Confused, Marge makes monkey noises back]
Bart:
[chuckles]

Two Days, Two Circles[edit]

Cast:
Itchy, Scratchy, Itchy Itchy, Scratchy.
Itchy, Scratchy, Itchy Itchy, Scratchy.
[repeats throughout]
Wise Old Cat:
From the day you are born in the alley,
To the day you are hit by a car.
There's cream to drink and mice to eat,
And great big balls of ya-a-a-a-rn.
It's the circle, the circle of-
Baby Itchy:
Knife!

Slices of Life[edit]

Lisa:
I love the use of streamers as blood. It robs the violence of its power.
Bart:
Woo-hoo! I'm drenched in "blood"!

It's Symbiotic[edit]

Scratchy:
I don't know why I trust him,
I guess some cats just never learn.
Itchy:
I feel so good when I have crushed him,
Or left him mangled, maimed and burned.
Itchy and Scratchy:
I suppose it's symbiotic,
And perhaps a bit erotic,
Scratchy:
Cause pain is my narcotic.
Itchy:
You really like it?
Scratchy:
Yes, a lot-ic!
Itchy & Scratchy:
And that's why we're always...
Itchy:
Fighting.
Scratchy:
And biting.
Itchy:
And dynamite igniting.
Homer:
Hey, check it out, I'm Scratcher or something.

Knives Finale[edit]

Cast:
It's the circle, the circle of knife!
It's the circle, the circle of knives!

Behind the Laughter[edit]

"Two Days, Two Circles" and "Knives Finale" are parodies of "Circle of Life" from The Lion King. "It's Symbiotic" is a parody of "I Don't Know How to Love Him" from the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.
