Lyrics[edit]

Not Jazz Chor, but Sad Chor[edit]

Krusty:
Well, Itchy & Scratchy are gone. But here's a cartoon that tries to make learning fun. [laughs and then groans] Sorry about this kids, but we have some real good toy commercials coming up. I swear!

The Amendment Song[edit]

Kid:
Hey, who left all this garbage on the steps of congress?
Amendment To Be:
I'm not garbage.
I'm an Amendment-to-Be,
Yes, an Amendment-to-Be,
And I'm hopin' that they'll ratify me.
There's a lot of flag burners
Who have got too much freedom,
I wanna make it legal
For policemen to beat 'em.
'Cos there's limits to our liberties,
Least I hope and pray that there are,
'Cos those liberal freaks go too far.
Kid:
Why can't we just make a law against flag burning?
Amendment:
Because that law would be unconstitutional. But if we change the Constitution—
Kid:
Then we could make all sorts of crazy laws.
Amendment:
Now you're catching on.
Bart:
What the hell is this?
Lisa:
It's one of those campy '70s throwbacks that appeals to Generation X-ers.
Bart:
We need another Vietnam, then out their ranks a little.
Kid:
What if people say you're not good enough to be in the Constitution?
Amendment:
Then I'll crush all opposition to me,
And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay.
If he fights back, I'll say that he's gay.
Congressman:
Great news, Amendment! They ratified ya! You're in the U.S. Constitution!
Amendment:
Oh yeah! Doors open, boys!
[various amendments storm the steps of congress whooping, cheering and bringing guns and bombs]
Lisa:
So it's true! Some cartoons do encourage violence! [hits Bart]
Bart:
Ow!

Behind the Laughter[edit]

"The Amendment Song" is a parody of Schoolhouse Rock song "I'm Just a Bill".
