"Why Springfield, Why Not?" is an anthem for Springfield written by Bart and Lisa and sung by children of Springfield.


Springfield's the only home that we've got
But to be frank, there's not a lot To recommend it
We've got a big sinkhole
And they shut down the think hole
Bart & Lisa:
Hashtag: SpringfieldPride
Has never ever trended...
Sideshow Mel:
This is not boosterism!
Joe Quimby:
Warm up the horse.
But when you think of the things we lack
Stead of the stuff we've got
Bart & Lisa:
Why Springfield?
Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, and Nelson:
Why not?
Bart, Lisa, and Nelson:
We've only had a hurricane once
We haven't had a circus fire in months
Bart, Lisa & Nelson:
Why not?
Ooh, we're just off the interstate
Ah, the second right off exit 8...
Clancy Wiggum:
He didn't blow his line.
Sarah, let's have another!
You may find our culture lacking
We finally outlawed our snake whacking
Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, and Nelson:
Sure, our cops are easily bought
Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, Ralph, Jeremy Jailbird, and Nelson:
And our dentists are all self-taught
Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, Ralph, Wendell, Rod Flanders, Jeremy Jailbird, and Nelson:
But hooray for Springfield
Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, Ralph, Sherri, Terri, Jeremy Jailbird, and Nelson:
Give two cheers Smallpox-free for seven years
Why Springfield?
Why not?
