Plow King (song)

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Plow King is the jingle for Barney Gumble's snow plow business of the same name performed by Barney and Linda Ronstadt in the episode Mr. Plow. The music and lyrics were written by Jeff Martin. It is the thirty-second track on the album Go Simpsonic with the Simpsons.


A scene from Barney's ad
(walking up to a cardboard cutout of Homer in his Mr. Plow attire) Well, well, if it isn't Mr. Plow.
(Barney starts to repeatedly beat the cutout with a baseball bat.)
Linda Ronstadt:
Hey, Plow King, save some for me.
Wow, Linda Ronstadt!
(Barney and Ronstadt beat up the fake Mr. Plow together.)
(Meanwhile, at Moe's Tavern, everyone's watching the ad on TV:)
Linda Ronstadt? How'd you get her?
Aw, we've been looking for a project to do together for a while.
(The ad continues:)
Linda Ronstadt:
When the snow starts a-fallin',
There's a man you should be callin':
That's KL5-4796.
Let it ring!
Mr. Plow is a loser
And I think he is a boozer.
Barney & Linda Ronstadt:
So you better make that call to the Plow King!
(Barney belches)

Incomplete Spanish version[edit]

Linda Ronstadt told Barney that she was working on a Spanish-language version of the Plow King jingle, and she sang a couple of lines for him:

Señor Plow no es macho
Es solamente un borracho

It translates as follows:

Mr. Plow isn't macho;
He's just a drunk.

They correspond to the English lyrics "Mr. Plow is a loser and I think he is a boozer."

Ronstadt didn't get to sing any of the rest of the Spanish lyrics, as Barney interrupted her to rush off to a plow job on Widow's Peak (which turned out to be a crank call placed by Homer).
