The Very Reason That I Live is a song sung mainly by Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer) in the episode "The Great Louse Detective". It is a parody of the song "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" from the musical My Fair Lady. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by John Frink and Don Payne. It is the third track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.

LyricsEdit

Bart:
Dad, I'm really glad you're still alive.
Homer:
Yeah, it's every parent's dream to outlive their children. Good night, son.
(Homer turns off the light, closes the door, but then Sideshow Bob appears.)
Sideshow Bob:
Hello, Bart.
(Bart screams and then searches for the buzzer.)
Sideshow Bob:
Looking for this? (holds the buzzer in his hand) Now I'm going to take some advice that was given to me by Lenny, and kill you without doing. One thrust and the deed is done. I....I can't do it.
Bart:
Huh? Why not?

Sideshow Bob:
Well, I guess I've—dear God—grown accustomed to your face!
I've grown accustomed to his face,
SideshowBobSinging3
And dreams of gouging out his eyes.
I've grown accustomed to my hate
My plans to lacerate,
To disembowel,
To hear him howl.
The very reason that I live
Is plotting how to watch him die.
Homer:
(banging on the door) Bart! Turn down that original cast recording and go to sleep!
Sideshow Bob:
SideshowBob4
I know this chubby scalawag
Has made my life a living hell
Surely, if I drank his blood,
I'd be at peace...
But well...
Bart:
You've grown accustomed to my face?
Sideshow Bob:
BartSinging
This isn't a duet.
Bart:
Sorry.
Sideshow Bob:
I've grown accustomed to your fear,
Accustomed to revenge,
Accustomed to your face.
We shall meet again, old friend. But now, I must steal away into the night.
