"Ode to Forgiveness" is a song sung by Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson and the Garbage-eating husband.


When Homer, Bart and the people from the Brokewood Apartments watch the British movie, Love, Indubitably, Homer had an idea to make a grand romantic gesture for the forgiveness of his girls (specially Marge Simpson, the Homer's wife and Mary Spuckler, the Bart's girlfriend), so the girls were invited to a grand gesture, who is this song in the genre of classical music.


I wrote this song to say I'm sorry
Dad, don't be a credit hog
The melody is by Beethoven
Not bad for a movie dog
Garbage-eating husband:
I'll stop eating from the garbage
Marge, you will get the last pork chop
Oh... A completed chore list
And I promise to do the things
I checked off, within a year
Spuckler Mary, please forgive me
All I ask is one more chance

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • The song is a parody of Friedrich Schiller's song "Ode to Joy" and the composition is very similar to the Beethoven version (Symphony No. 9).
  • When singing this song, Homer sings the line: "The melody is by Beethoven" and Bart then sings: "Not bad for a movie dog". Homer is referring to the composer while Bart is referring to the film Beethoven.
