Everybody Hates Ned Flanders single

Everybody Hates Ned Flanders is an Emmy-nominated song from the episode "Dude, Where's My Ranch?". In the episode, it was written by Homer Simpson. It was supposed to be a Christmas carol, but when Flanders interrupted Homer's writing of it, he decided to make a hate song about him. After hearing it in Moe's Tavern, guest star David Byrne decided to make it into a CD and have it play all over Springfield on radios, church choirs and karaoke bars. However, after hearing several knock-offs, Homer gives up on the song. The music was written by Alf Clausen and Ken Keeler and the lyrics by Ian Maxtone-Graham and Keeler. It is part of the seventeenth track on the album The Simpsons: Testify. It was nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music and Lyrics in 2003. It lost to "Aren't They All Our Children" from the television special The Concert for World Children's Day.

Lyrics Edit

For the introduction lyrics see Flanders is His Name.
David Byrne:
Excuse me, I've been researching indigenous music of Springfield and couldn't help but overhear your delightfully cruel hate song.
Carl:
David Byrne?
Moe:
Singer, artist, director, composer, Talking Head.
David Byrne:
And I used to wrestle under the name El Diablo (The Devil).
Lenny:
I thought that was Phillip Glass.
David Byrne:
Yeah, he wishes.
Homer:
Hey, mister, if you like my song, do you wanna buy a tape? It's already rewound.
David Byrne:
No, thank you. But I would like to sing it with you, and produce it.
Homer:
[sighs] Fine.
Lenny and Carl:
Flanders6
F-L-A,
Homer:
His name is Ned!
Lenny and Carl:
E-R-S,
Homer:
Ned's a stupid name!
It's worse than Frankenstein
Or Dr. No!
David Byrne:
Flanders2
You can't upset him even slightly,
He just smiles and nods politely,
Then goes home and worships nightly,
His Leftorium is an emporium of woe!
Lenny and Carl:
F-L-A,
Homer:
Don't yell at Ned!
Lenny and Carl:
D-E-R,
Homer:
His wife is dead!
Everybody hates that stupid jerk!
David Byrne:
Springfield rocks with Homer's joyous loathing,
Flanders3
Filling clubs with angry Valentinos.
You don't have to move your feet,
Just hate Flanders to the disco beat.
Homer and David Byrne:
He's your perky, peppy, nightmare neighborino!
Homer and David Byrne: (Ned Flanders also singing along to the radio in his car)
Flanders4
.
If you despise polite left-handers,
Then I doubt you'll like Ned Flanders
Or his creepy little offspring, Rod and Todd.
Rod and Todd: (sitting in the car listening to the song on the radio).
That's us!
Hooray!!!
Audience:
F-L-A!
Apu:
His name is Ned!
Audience:
E-R-S!
Apu:
He is so white bread!
Flanders5
Homer and Choir:
The smiling moustache geek who walks with God!
Reverend Lovejoy:
Mass dismissed.

Other versions Edit

William Shatner's cover Edit

"Sung" by William Shatner (guest voice Maurice LaMarche). This is a parody of Shatner's infamous interpretation of "Rocket Man."

DJ:
We're halfway through our Same Song Six-Pack! Now let's hear William Shatner's version of "Everybody Hates Ned Flanders!"
Marge:
Another cover?! My God, let it die!
William Shatner:

Everybody...
In the U.S...
A...
Hates...their...
Stupid...neighbor...
He's the Flanders...man...
The Flanders, man...
Flanders...
(Marge turns off the radio)
Marge:
I am so sick of that song!
Homer:
Ugh, me, too! I've come to hate my own creation! Now I know how God feels.

Extended salsa mix Edit

Homer:
This dude ranch is gonna be great. A whole week without hearing that stupid song.
David Byrne:
You won't think it's stupid when you hear the Extended Salsa Mix!
(gets out of the car and starts dancing on the hood)
¡No nos gusta Flanders!
Flander Song Again
¡Es un hombre estupido!
¡No nos gusta Flanders!
Marge:
Watch it, Mr. Byrne! You'll slip on the Simoniz!
David Byrne:
Simoniz?
(Byrne slips on the Simoniz and lands in Moe's car.)
Moe:
Woah. Woah!
David Byrne:
Can you take me to the hospital?
Moe:
Yeah, no problem.
(they pass the hospital)
David Byrne:
Wasn't that the hospital?
Moe:
Uh...did you ever see the movie Misery?
David Byrne:
Actually, no.
Moe:
Then this'll all be new to you.
