The Simpsons – Do The Bartman (1990 – singolo)

-

do the bartmanQuesto singolo è il primo reperto sonoro partorito dal microcosmo giallo dei Simpson (uso la dicitura italiana senza “s” anche se mi piace poco) nel lontano Novembre 1990 quando il cartoon creato da Matt Groening cominciava ad ottenere ampi consensi negli States, ma non era ancora trasmesso in Europa (se non via satellite).

Nonostante tutto questo “Do The Bartman” fu accolto in maniera eccellente in tutto il mondo e particolarmente in Inghilterra e Irlanda (non a caso paesi anglofoni) dove raggiunse il primo posto in classifica per settimane (posizione che raggiunse anche in Australia)!

Come tutto ciò che riguarda la famiglia di Springfield non c’è nulla di improvvisato ed il singolo lo dimostra essendo stato scritto a quattro mani da Michael Jackson (citato 2 volte nel testo – all’epoca ancora il re mida del pop) e Bryan Loren (che produrrà il milionario “Dangerous”) che si cimentano in un rap dalle tipiche sonorità primi anni ’90 (anche perché erano i primi anni ’90!).

La versione “album” della canzone la potete trovare nella raccolta “The Simpsons Sing the Blues”, mentre nel singolo potete trovare 4 mix differenti (il 45 giri ne ha solo 2).

Da segnalare che, pur essendo uno dei più memorabili spin-off della serie, viene citato molto raramente all’interno dello show (ad esempio quando Bart ha un attacco di cuore, oppure nel 1998 ma viene tacciato di essere troppo 1991!).

Do The Bartman

Yo! Hey, what’s happening, dude?
I’m the guy with the rep for being rude.
Terrorizing people wherever I go,
It’s not intentional, just keepin’ the flow.

Fixin’ test scores to get the best scores.
Droppin’ banana peels all over the floor.
I’m the kid that made delinquency an art,
Last name Simpson, first name Bart.

I’m here today to introduce the next phase,
The next step in the big Bart craze.
I’ve got a dance real easy to do;
I learned it with no rhythm, and so can you.

So move your body if you’ve got the notion,
Front to back in a rock-like motion.
Now that you’ve got it, if you think you can,
Do it to the music–that’s the Bartman.

Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Whoa!
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Shake it out, man!
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
Bartman!
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
Uh-huh.
Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Whoa, mama!
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
Whoa.
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

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,
Sitting 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.

Move your body, if you’ve got the notion.
Whoa, I’m feelin’ the groove now, baby!
Front to back in a rock-like motion.
Bring it back, whoa!
Move you hips from side to side now.
Do the Bartman!
Don’t ya slip, let your feet glide now.
Whoa, Lisa. Ha!
If ya got the groove, ya gotta use it.
Ha, ha, ha!
Light rhythm in time with the music.
Ha, ha, ha. Check it out, man.
You just might start a chain reaction.
If you can do the Bart, you’re bad like Michael Jackson.

Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Oh, yeah!
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Shake yo’ body!
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
Huh!
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
Yeah, do the Bartman.
Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Everybody, yeah, do the Bartman.
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Shake it out.
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
Whoa, mama.
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
I’m bad, I’m bad!

Do the Bartman.
Everybody back and forth, from side to side.
Do the Bartman.
Pick your feet up off the floor, let ‘em glide!
Do the Bartman.
She can do it, he can do it, so can I.
Do the Bartman.
Now here’s a dance beat that you can’t deny.

Turn it down! Will you stop that infernal racket?!
Do the Bartman!

Oh, my ears! Lisa! Put that saxophone away!
You can’t touch this.
I didn’t do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can’t prove anything.

Oops!

Now I’m in the house, feeling good to be home,
Till Lisa starts blowing that damn saxophone.
And if it was mine, you know they’d take it away,
But still I’m feeling good, so that’s okay.

I’m up in my room, just a singin’ a song,
Listen to the kick drum, kickin’ along.
Yeah, Lisa likes jazz; she’s their number one fan,
But I know I’m bad, ‘cause I do the Bartman.

Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Hey, everybody!
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Need I remind you?
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
I am Bart, Bart-man.
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
Shake it out.

Do the Bartman.
Everybody back and forth, from side to side.
Do the Bartman.
She can do it, he can do it, so can I.

Move your body, if you’ve got the notion.
Move it.
Front to back in a rock-like motion.
Swing it!
Move you hips from side to side now.
Don’t ya slip, let your feet glide now.
If ya got the groove, ya gotta use it.
Dooby, dooby, dooby, dooby, doo, wop, bop, bop!
Light rhythm in time with the music.
Dabba doo, dabba doo, dab it!
You just might start a chain reaction.
Dabba dab, doo dab
Hee, hee, hee. I’m a Bartman.

Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Swing it, baby.
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Hoo-uh.
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
Oh yeah. I’m bad. Real bad.
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
Whoa, mama.

Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.
Do the Bartman.
Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.
Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.
Ha, ha!
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
Oh yeah!

Move your body, if you’ve got the notion.
You call that dancing? Ha!
Front to back in a rock-like motion.
Watch this move.
Move you hips from side to side now.
(Everybody in the house do the Bartman)
Ooh, uh uh, uh, ai, ai. Yeah!
Don’t ya slip, let your feet glide now.
If ya got the groove, ya gotta use it.
Ha, ha, ha! Swing it!
Jack your body in time with the music.
You just might start a chain reaction.
Eat your heart out, Michael! Woop!
Everybody in the house do the Bartman.
