Longing for the Shack

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Longing for the Shack is a song sung by Groundskeeper Willie in the episode My Fair Laddy. It is a parody of the song "On the Street Where You Live" from the musical My Fair Lady. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Michael Price. It is part of the thirtieth track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.

Lyrics[edit]

Coach Krupt:
Hey, Maitre d'!
Groundskeeper Willie:
May I help you, sir?
Coach Krupt:
These roles are stale! BOMBARDMENT!!! Bring me some more! BOMBARDMENT!!! And, uh, some nice tea for the lady please. BOMBARDMENT!!!
Groundskeeper Willie:
(sighs)
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!
If I had your voice, I'd talk-sing everything!
