Script and Lyrics

  • (We open this music video with Ash's little sister Mary reading it)
  • Narrator: And now, it's time for Simpsons Songs on YTV, the part of the show where they come out and sing a Simpson song. Today, Ash is on a quest to go on strike, as he is ready to help Gary Oak and the whole mean crew of ladies.
  • Ash: Yo, Gary. I've heard about many messages saying that you're here and I'm a loser, eh?
  • Gary: That's right, Ash, and I have a feeling that we're holding a strike together.
  • Rabbit: Now, remember, don't get caught by any other student like Serena, Sam or Eddy.
  • Donkey Kong: They've been kicked out of class since they tried to interfere.
  • Ash and Gary: Okay.
  • Lexi: Looks like we're ready to help you.
  • Senora Zapata: Even though Puss in the Boots won't see me, we'll go on strike without him.
  • Ash: Right.
  • Gary: Let's do this!
  • (As Ash and his rival help the other mean ladies, Mel is at a corner, singing The Union Strike Folk Song with her guitar)
  • Mel: Come gather round students It's high time ye learned 'Bout a hero named Ash And a devil named Gary.We'll march 'till we drop The girls and the fellas. We'll fight 'till the death Or else fold like umbrellas. So we'll march day and night By the big cooling tower. They have the plant But we have the power.
  • Brittany: Now do "Classical Gas!"
  • (The School Strike Folk Song ends)
  • Ash:
