It's a Desperate Criminal is one of the wraparound songs that the Simpsons sing to help introduce clips in the episode "All Singing, All Dancing". The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Steve O'Donnell.


It's a desperate criminal
On the run from the law!
Please spare my children!
And their damp-trousered pa!
A singing family, it's worse than I feared.
For hostage purposes, you're just too weird.
See? All this singing scared him away.
If we just talked like normal he'd probably stay.
Many people in this town sing like we do:
There's Mr. Burns, there's Krusty, and even Apu.
