Motivate them

Motivate Them is a song sung by Lisa in the episode Yokel Chords. It is a parody of the title song from the musical The Sound of Music, while Lisa's performance of it is more of a parody of Julie Andrews' version of it from the movie. The music was written by Alf Clausen and the lyrics by Michael Price. It is part of the thirty-seventh track on the album The Simpsons: Testify.

Lyrics

Lisa:
You asked to see me?
Seymour Skinner:
Lisa, would you consider tutoring Cletus's children?
Superintendent Chalmers:
You'll be happy, they'll be happy, and I can go home and enjoy some delicious fondue.
Seymour Skinner:
Made with...fondue set I bought you for Christmas?
Superintendent Chalmers:
No. So what do you say, Lisa?
Lisa:
Me? A tutor.
The hillbilly tykes
Will become my tutees.
(slips and falls)
Cletus:
Hey, kids, the plow mule done burst a girl critter!
