A Vote For a Winner[edit]

... and we deserve a French teacher who actually speaks French. J'accuse, Monsieur Kupferberg!
Monsieur Kupferberg:
What's she yakkin' about?
Principal Skinner:
Nelson, rebuttal?
Yo everyone, it's me, Nelson.
Nel-son! Nel-son! Nel-son!
I'm not that cool,
I don't wear jeans.
I've polished an apple or two.
But every grade that I grubbed,
I grubbed it for you.
So call me bookworm,
But I'll never squirm,
When there's work to be done.
Yes, I'll take my lunch at my desk
While you're all outside having fun.
Don't vote for me, kids of Springfield,
Unless you want an effective leader.
I'll talk to teachers,
I'll handle Skinner,
A vote for Lisa,
Makes you the winner!
Vote Lisa! Vote Lisa! Vote Lisa!

I Am Their Queen[edit]

You wanted to see me?
Edna Krabappel:
Actually, Lisa... I wanted you to see you. You're our President now, but you look like the first lady of "yawn"!
What would you change?
Eyes, pearls, smile, hairpoints,
Dress, voice, shoes, Swatch watch.
I may be the new girl,
But you can't brainwash me.
Just Osh Kosh B'gosh me,
And then leave me be.
To fight for kid power,
I must be heard not seen.
I have to lead wisely,
Not just primp and preen.
Nails, dimples, ears, scrunchie,
Purse, lunchbox, teeth, Milhouse.
This beauting-up suits me,
There's beauty within me.
So let's Olsen Twin me,
Give them someone to love.
This grown-up makeover,
Has made me a super tween.
For they are my people,
And I am their queen!
Oh, Lisa, you look so successful. Like you're the wife of a businessman.
I wish I'd married a businessman. Then I'd have nice things.

Skinner's Evil Plan[edit]

Principal Skinner:
I'm so happy with my evil plan.
Say goodbye to music, gym and art!
Soon we will have the perfect school!
Where fun and excitement never start!
Groundskeeper Willie:
I'm so drunk I could barely see!
But it helps me get through another day!
My stomach is filled with haggis and hurt!
I've got to go puke in some hay!
Lisa is a fool!
Seymour Skinner:
I think the rules are cool!
Groundskeeper Willie:
I'm fallin' in the pool!
Principal Skinner:
Hmm, not a cloud in the sky -- a perfect day to unveil Operation SLAAAM: So Long Athletics Art And Music. Care for a T-shirt?
Superintendent Chalmers:
T-shirt? Why don't you just give me a sandwich board that says "Male Prostitute"?
Principal Skinner:
Oh well... I... Forgive me, sir.

A Tango Takes Two[edit]

What have I done?
What they wanted you to.
Skinner betrayed me!
But a tango takes two.

Smart Girl Six Three[edit]

Superintendent Chalmers:'
Skinner! I don't mean to interrupt your advice from the janitor. But I say, cut off the head and the body will die.
Principal Skinner:
You want to get rid of Lisa?! But she's such a good student!
Superintenent Chalmers:
Yes. In fact, I think she's a little too good for this school.
If we stand together, we are strong!
[kids cheer]
Principal Skinner:
Lisa Simpson, you have just been transferred to the Springfield Magnet School for the gifted and troublesome. Please climb into the idling bus.
But... but I...
Poor Li-sa.
Poor Li-sa...
Don't cry for me, kids of Springfield.
You can still reach me through e-mail.
At smart girl six three,
Underscore back slash,
At Yahoo dot com.
At Yahoo dot com...
