Lyrics[edit]

Episode version[edit]

Part one[edit]

Bart:
Satan, eat my shorts!
I was a sinner, a real bad kid.
What "Thou shalt not" I "shalt" did.
Neighbors' cat I tried to neuter,
Took a whiz on the school computer.
Sherri and Terri:
He took a whiz,
Oh, yes, he did!
Bart:
But now, I've changed,
You can't deny.
Come on up and,
Tes-ti-fy!
Sherri and Terri:
Tes-ti-fy!
Tes-ti-fy!
Come on up and,
Tes-ti-fy!
Grampa:
My hip's misbehavin
Back-Up Singers:
Tes-ti-fy!
Patty:
Gotta nicotine cravin'!
Back-Up Singers:
Tes-ti-fy!
Professor Frink:
There's a cramp in my glaven!
Back-Up Singers:
Tes-ti-fy!
Bart and Back-Up Singers:
Tes-ti-fy!
Bart and Everyone:
Tes-ti-fy!

Part two[edit]

Milhouse:
My glasses make me look like a geek.
Bart:
Now you'll get the girls you seek.
Sherri and Terri:
We'll see you at make-out creek.
Everyone:
Bart's the boy of the hour,
He's got the power!
Bart and Everyone:
So raise your voice, and don't be shy!
Tes-ta-, tes-ta-
Teeeeeeeeeeeeessss-taaaaaaaaa-
Bart and select singers:
FYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
Everyone Else:
Testify! Testify!
Everyone:
Come on up and tes-ti-fy!

Deleted lyrics[edit]

Martin Prince:
I've had this wedgie since I was six.
Bart:
There's no problem faith can't fix.
Martin Prince:
Now this cat's getting into the mix.
Yeah
Everyone Else:
Testify! Testify!
Come on up and testify!
