Branson Song

Ode to Branson is an Emmy-nominated song from the episode "The Old Man and the Key". It takes place in a revue paying tribute to stars of yesteryear we haven't heard from in a long time. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Jon Vitti. It is the seventh track on the album The Simpsons: Testify. It was nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music and Lyrics in 2002. It lost to "You've Got a Lot to See" from its rival Family Guy.

On January 27, 2011, Charlie Callas passed away.

LyricsEdit

Cast:
Remember the stars
You loved yesterday?
Where did they go?
Did they all pass away?
Was it drugs or a car crash
Or face lift gone wrong?
No, they're right here in Branson,
And singing this song!
Charo:
My name is Charo, I shake my maracas.
Mr. T:
Remember me, fool, I was B.A. Baracus.ª
Cast:
We're the performers
You thought were dead
Like Bonnie Franklin
And Adrian Zmed.
Branson's the place
They can always be found
They took Nick at Nite
And made it a town.
Ray Jay Johnson:
You can call me "Ray,"
Or you can call me "Jay,"
Just don't call me "washed up,"
I do three shows a day!
Charlie Callas:
Charlie Callas doesn't sleep in the ground
Yes, I'm still alive, and I'm making my sounds.
(Callas makes crazy sound effects)
Cast:
So sit back, relax,
And watch our revue.
Yakov Smirnoff:
In Soviet Union,
Revue watches you!

ªOn the album, the lyric is just "Remember, fool, I was B.A. Baracus."
