| Song Information
Springfield Anthem is a song sung by the Springfieldians that was heard during the ending credits of The Simpsons Movie. An animatic version of the song is featured in The Complete Tenth Season DVD Boxset.
- Springfield doesn't have an anthem.
- We thought we had one,
- But we don't.
- We paid our short guy to write it,
- But we never saw him again.
- The tune we stole from the French.
- There's a few things they do well.
- Like making love, wine, and cheese
- Springfieldians & Crazy Cat Lady:
- Like Roquefort, Camembert and Bries.
- Springfieldians & Nelson Muntz:
- We're going to die,
- I'm scared, goodbye.
