"Longing for the Shack" is a song sung by Groundskeeper Willie and Dewey Largo.


Groundskeeper Willie:
I've a fancy suit,
And a clean white shirt,
But I miss the days when tractor fumes,
Blew up my skirt.
I was freezing cold,
And I slept in mold,
But I long for the shack where I lived.
She was true to me,
My old home of wood,
And when I passed out drunk from turpentine,
She understood.
Life was so sublime.
Mr. Largo:
Well, boo hoo, cuz I'm,
Hanging ferns in the shack where you lived!

Behind the Laughter[edit]

It is a parody of the song "On the Street Where You Live" from the musical My Fair Lady. It is part of the "My Fair Laddy (Medley)" track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.
