I learned it with no rhythm and so can you [ooh!].
So move your body, if you got the notion
Front to back in a rock-like motion
Now that you got it if you think you can
Do it to the music - that's the Bart, man.
Background singer (chorus):
Everybody if you can, do the Bart, man
Shake your body turn it out, if you can, man
[obscured] ...to the side as you can can
Everybody in the house do the Bart, man.
It wasn't long ago, just a couple of weeks
I got in trouble - yeah, pretty deep.
Homer was yellin' [Bart!] Mom was too
Because I put mothballs in the beef stew.
Punishment time - in the air lurks gloom
Sittin' by myself confined to my room
When all else fails, nothin' else left to do
I turn on the music so I can feel the groove
Background singer (alternate chorus):
Move your body if you got the notion
Front to back in a rock like motion
Move your hips from side to side now
If you've got the groove, you gotta use it
Rock rhythim in time with the music
Just might start a chain reaction
If you can do the Bart, you're bad, like Michael Jackson
Do the Bart, man. Everybody back and forth, from side to side.
Do the Bart, man. Now here's a dance beat that you can't deny:
Turn it down! Will you stop that infernal racket!
Do the Bart, man!
Oh my ears! Lisa! Put that saxophone away! Ya can't touch this!
I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything.
Now I'm in the house feelin' good to be home
'Till Lisa starts blowin' that damn saxophone And if it was mine, you know they'd take it away. But still I'm feelin' good, so that's okay. I'm up in my room, just a-singin' a song Listen to the kick-drum kickin' along. Now Lisa like Jazz, she's [obs] number one fan But I know I'm bad, 'cause I do the Bart, man. chorus
Do the Bart, man. Everybody back and forth from side to side. Do the Bart, man! She can do it, he can do it, so can I.
