Sherry Bobbins: Alright, children, let's clean up this room.

Bart: Aw, man...

Lisa: Do we have to?

Sherry: Now, now. I know a little secret that will make the job go twice as fast.

If there's a task that must be done,
Don't turn your tail and run,
Don't pout, don't sob,
Just do a half-assed job.

If you cut every corner,
It is really not so bad.
Everybody does it,
Even mom and dad.
If nobody sees it,
Then nobody gets mad.

Bart: It's the American way!

Sherry: The policeman on the street
Needs some time to rest his feet.

Chief Wiggum: Fighting crime is not my cup of tea!

Sherry: And the clerk who runs the store
Can charge a little more
For meat

Apu: For meat!

Sherry: And milk

Apu: And milk!

Sherry & Apu: From 1984!

Sherry: If you cut every corner,
You'll have more time for play!

All: It's the American way!
