The Lyrics

I have often wished that "The Simpsons" and its outlandishly funny settings and characters were real so that I could be a Simpsons character, regardless of the fact that I'd have yellow skin and eyes that looked like Ping-Pong balls with dots. This parody is about what my experience with Kwik-E-Mart (Matt Groening's take on 7-Eleven, Circle K and other franchised convenience stores) would be like as told on a third-person basis, and one might notice that I wrote my name into a parody for the first time.
Kwik-E-Mart, Kwik-E
Oh, Kwik-E-Mart
The Simpsons’ favorite store
Kwik-E-Mart, Kwik-E
Oh, Kwik-E-Mart
The Simpsons’ favorite store

Snake Jailbird is robbing you
And El Barto’s tagging you too
You sell expired meat
From 1984
Andria keeps coming around
And buys every donut there

Oh, Kwik-E, Kwik-E
The Kwik-E-Mart
Springfield’s greatest store
Kwik-E-Mart, Kwik-E
Oh, Kwik-E-Mart
The Simpsons’ favorite store


Apu works in the store
Ninety-six hours a week
Now, my heart's a-givin’ out
From the donuts
Chutney Squishees, I’m cravin’
‘Spite the fact they make me sick

Kwik-E-Mart, Kwik-E
Oh, Kwik-E-Mart
The Simpsons’ favorite store
Kwik-E-Mart, Kwik-E
Oh, Kwik-E-Mart
The Simpsons’ favorite store


Need your donuts (To Kwik-E-Mart, gonna hurry back)
Need your Duff Beer (To Kwik-E-Mart, I’m gonna hurry back)

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

I wanna say
I'm not getting any thinner
I can't hold on very much longer,
Trying hard to lose weight
But, Kwik-E, that store’s a-makin’ me fat


Kwik-E-Mart, Kwik-E
Oh, Kwik-E-Mart
The Simpsons’ favorite store
Kwik-E, can't go back there, Kwik-E
To Kwik-E-Mart
I’m never comin’ back

Need your donuts (Goin’ back to Kwik-E-Mart)
Need your Squishees (From Kwik-E-Mart)
Goin’ back
Kwik-E-Mart
‘Spite the fact
Made me fat

The Kwik-E-Mart
They made me fat
Think I’ll sue
The Kwik-E-Mart

The Kwik-E-Mart
They made me fat
Yeah, I’ll sue
The Kwik-E-Mart


I do not own any of "The Simpsons" characters or locations. Those who do include Matt Groening, Fox Broadcasting Company and Gracie Films. I am just a fan with (some say) an overactive imagination and (without a doubt) lots of time on my hands.

Thanks Matthias... it was inspired to some degree by your project, but also by a trip to the 7-Eleven, thanks Mark, thanks Alvin... lol and those chutney Squishees sound gross in reality, and thanks Jason.

Cute!
Andria - April 28, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Tim. For those who are interested, I actually wrote my name into a parody once before, again on a third-person basis, in my self-attacking parody "She's a Pain", so the line in my prelude about my name appearing for the first time in any of my parodies should be regarded as a typo.

This gits it on...

Chutney, curry and pepper squishies would be apropos. You left out the part about Paul McCartney and the garden on the roof.

Thanks AFW, lol, and thanks 2Eagle... I didn't think about McCartney and the garden on the roof of the Kwik-E-Mart.
