[edit] Lyrics

{Children talking}

STRONG BAD: {talking} Okay, settle down, class. Settle down, uh, we gotta get this right, or nobody gets any chocolate milk, for the rest of th— of the term. I will be accompanied by Mr. Cheaterson on the piano, so would everyone please rise for the presentation of our national colors.

{piano plays}

{whispered} Shh! Hey, you zip it! Jerome! Jerome! Show some respect! Spit that gum out! Shut up! I'm gonna freakin' hit— {piano becomes more up-tempo}

Oh, yeah! Oh, I like that!

Come to the place where tropical breezes blow.
Come to the coolest place I know.

The pe-
The people are so great,
But really there's only me,
And that means I'm so great,
And also there's the Cheat.

Oh there's the Cheat
In the place where the tropical breezes blow
The Cheat in the coolest place I know

And the ones are always cold,
And the parties last all night,
And there's probably lots of chocolate,
And Population: Tire

Population... tiiiire.

STRONG BAD: {talking} That was pretty good. I'll tell you what: you guys can get low fat, sugar-free, chocolate skim milk from now on.

KIDS: Aww, man! I wanted milk!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go... go back to class.

[edit] Remarks

  • The "children" at the beginning sound like the The Brothers Chaps' normal speaking voices. Then during and after the song, they sound like small children.
  • At the end you can hear a small bit of canned laughter.

[edit] Inside References

  • The name "Jerome" is in reference to anything, where Homestar fills in and acts as if he's teaching a class. He refers to the person who sent the email as "Jerome".
  • This is another instance of Names ending in -erson.

[edit] Fast Forward
