A Vote for a Winner is an Emmy-nominated song sung by Lisa in the episode The President Wore Pearls. The song parodies "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina". The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Dana Gould. It is part of the twentieth track on the album The Simpsons: Testify. It was nominated for a Primetime Emmy award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music and Lyrics in 2004. It lost to the song "Because You are Beautiful" from the TV special World VDAY.

Lyrics

Lisa:
And we deserve a French teacher who actually speaks French! J'accuse, Monsieur Cusperberg!
Mr. Cusperberg:
What is she yakkin' about?
Lisa:
I rest my case.
Seymour Skinner:
Nelson, rebuttal?
Nelson:
Yo, everyone, it's me, Nelson!
Students:
YAAAY! NELSON! NELSON! NELSON! NELSON!
Lisa:
I'm not that cool,
I don't wear jeans.
I've polished an apple or two.
But every grape 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!
Students:
Vote Lisa! Vote Lisa! Vote Lisa!
