He's the Man is a song from the episode Alone Again, Natura-Diddily. It is sung by the Christian rock band Kovenant, whose lead singer, Rachel Jordan is voiced by Shawn Colvin. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Ian Maxtone-Graham. It is the fourth track on the album The Simpsons: Testify. It is sung twice in said episode; Once by Rachel when she met Ned Flanders at the First Church of Springfield after the organist was on a much needed vacation, and another time during the end credits.

Lyrics

Reverend Lovejoy:
While our organist is on a much needed vacation, we thought we'd try something new. So get down and put your knees together for the Christian rock stylings of...Kovenant!
(rock band starts playing)
Lisa:
Hey, isn't that the bass player from Satanica?
This is supposed to refer to Stian Arnesen who worked as a bass player for the Swedish black metal band Dimmu Borgir and went over to The Kovenant.
Marge:
I think it is.
Flanders:
(gasps) Electric guitars in church? Oh, my gosh, the dropouts must've overpowered the Reverend.
Rachel Jordan:
This is a love song about a dude I met in a sleazy hotel. (Flanders gasps) A dude named God.
Flanders:
Oh.
Rachel Jordan:
In a motel room in Delacroix,
I was drinkin' like a Dartmouth boy,
And thinkin' 'bout the wrong turns that I took.
Well, I woke up on the puke-green floor,
And opened up a dresser drawer,
Lookin' for a bottle,
But instead I found a book.
Lenny:
She's talkin' about the bible.
Carl:
So? She's good-lookin', shut up.
Lenny:
You shut up.
Rachel Jordan:
A book about a man,
A book about the dude who lives above,
A book about a man,
Who drives a pickup full of sweet sweet love.
Now, if you think He doesn't care,
Or maybe that He isn't there,
It's not too late
To see how wrong you are.
So when your soul has gone astray,
Just let God be your Triple-A,
He'll tow you to salvation
And He'll overhaul your heart.
A book about a man,
A book about the dude who lives above,
A book about a man,
Who drives a pickup full of sweet sweet love.

Lyrics (End Credits Reprise)

It's a show about Ned;
about him losing his sweet wife.
She landed on her head;
but now it's time to get on with his life.
