"We're Sending Our Love Down the Well" was a song produced by Krusty the Clown and Sting as a benefit for "Timmy O'Toole," a little boy who had fallen down a well. The song was just one item in a storm of media circus hoopla that surrounded the event, which was revealed later to have been all an elaborate hoax by Bart Simpson.


The song didn't get off the ground until Sting was available, which wasn't until several days after Krusty contacted him. Sting, and the other celebrities who participated in the song, were more than happy "to do whatever [they] can" to help Timmy.

When asked by Kent Brockman in an interview what he planned to do with the royalties, Krusty said that after they paid for promotion, shipping, distribution, and limo rental fees, "Whatever's left, we'll throw down the well." The song became a U.S. #1 hit, staying at the top for a week, until dropping all the way down to #97, when Timmy was revealed to be a hoax.

There's a hole in my heart
As deep as a well
For that poor little boy
Who's stuck halfway to Hell.
Sideshow Mel:
Though we can't get him out
We'll do the next best thing.
Rainier Wolfcastle:
We go on TV and sing, sing, sing.
And we're sending our love down the well.
All the way down.
We're sending our love down the well.
Down that well.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The song is a parody of "We Are the World" by USA for Africa.
