Lyrics[edit]

Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart?[edit]

Apu:
Whether igloo, hut, or lean-to,
Or a geodesic dome,
There's no structure I have been to
Which I'd rather call my home.
When I first arrived, you were all such jerks,
But now I've come to loooooooove,
Your quirks.
Maggie, with her eyes so bright,
Marge with hair by Frank Lloyd Wright,
Lisa can philosophize,
Bart's adept at spinning lies.
Homer's a delightful fella.
Sorry 'bout the salmonella.
Homer:
Heh-heh. That's okay.
Apu:
Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?
Now here's the tricky part,
Oh, won't you rhyme with me?
Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?
Marge:
Their floors are sticky-mart!
Lisa:
They make Dad sick-e-mart!
Bart:
Let's hurl a brick-e-mart!
Homer:
The Kwik-E-Mart is real—
D'oh!
All:
Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?
Apu:
Not meeeeeeeeeee!
The Simpsons [simultaneously]:
Forget the Kwik-E-Mart!
Good-bye to Kwik-E-Mart!
Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?
Apu:
Not me!

Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart? (Reprise)[edit]

Apu [sadly]:
Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?
I do.
