Notes

The fun and quirky song that appears in the episode "Prequels of Love", I Love Pork Rinds, is a strange song indeed. In the end, the man in the song actually leaves his girlfriend for his favorite crunchy, heart-clogging snack food. It was composed especially for this scene, the idea being that pork rinds are something that Bart and Doris have in common. According to Marshal Younger, the lyrics were composed in an hour during a team meeting. The music was composed by John Campbell, who also sang the song.

Lyrics

Baby, you tried to clean-up my whole cluttered life.
Maybe, just maybe, you could've been my wife.
I thought you were my type, we got along great.
Until you saw that pork rinds was all that I ate.
I gave up potato chips, just like you said.
And then I tried your food that tasted like cardboard instead.
I put down the toilet seat, and I bought you a ring, honey.
But I can't give up pork rinds, and baby that's the thing.
Can't give up my pork rinds, no matter what you say.
Can't give up my pork rinds, just to have you stay.
You gave me an ultimatum -- a girl is so easy to find.
I guess I'll have to pack your bags, cause I just love pork rinds.
You just don't compare with them morsels of pork.
The spicy kind just has a lot more torque.
I love you babe, you were the best at the time,
But I just won't give up my rinds.
Can't give up my pork rinds, no matter what you say.
Can't give up my pork rinds, just to have you stay.
You gave me an ultimatum -- a girl is so easy to find.
You're outta here, honey, cause I love my pork rinds!

Deleted Verse

They're a part of me, girl, the most major piece.
Like air, or water, or fleeing police.
Red meat and Pepsi are a crude triple crown
Without those sweet pork rinds, to wash it all down.

Trivia

  • Outside of "Adventures in Odyssey"; the song can be heard in the Season 2 finale of the Up TV series "Bringing Up Bates", titled "Hello Dollywood" where aspiring singer Lawson Bates - one of the 19 children in the Bates family - having been egged on by sister Carlin, can be seen singing part of the song.
