Open the Door, Homer

Now, there's a certain thing

That I learned from Jim

That he'd always make sure I'd understand

And that is that there's a certain way

That a man must swim

If he expects to live off

Of the fat of the land.

Open the door, Homer,

I've heard it said before.

Open the door, Homer,

I've heard it said before

But I ain't gonna hear it said no more.

.

Now, there's a certain thing

That I learned from my friend, Mouse

A fella who always blushes

And that is that ev'ryone

Must always flush out his house

If he don't expect to be

Goin' 'round housing flushes.

Open the door, Homer,

I've heard it said before.

Open the door, Homer,

I've heard it said before

But I ain't gonna hear it said no more.

.

"Take care of all your memories"

Said my friend, Mick

"For you cannot relive them

And remember when you're out there

Tryin' to heal the sick

That you must always

First forgive them."

Open the door, Homer,

I've heard it said before.

Open the door, Homer,

I've heard it said before

But I ain't gonna hear it said no more.
