Los Simpson: el tema de Michael Jackson y Bryan Loren "Do the Bartman" alcanza los 38.500 $

Un comprador anónimo se hace con el tema "Do the Bartman" que pudimos escuchar en Los Simpson en 1990 por la friolera de... 38.500 dólares.

"Do the Bartman" es el tema hip hop que se lanzó al mercado el 20 de noviembre de 1990 escirta por Michael Jackson y Bryan Loren y realizada por Nancy Cartwright.

Jackson era un declarado fan de la serie y en concreto de Bart Simpson y le ofreció a los productores un single que pudiera lanzarse dentro de la popular serie de animación, aunque en ese momento no pudiera aparecer en los créditos debido a que tenía un contrato en exclusiva con Sony Music.

Ahora el tema musical ha salido a subasta y un postor anónimo se ha hecho con sus derechos por 38.500 dólares (unos 35.000 euros), la misma cifra que alcanzó, por ejemplo, un grabado de Picasso en 2013.

Loren por su parte ha mantenido siempre que Michael Jackson sólo participó en la canción al hacer los coros. “La historia de la canción y su creación ha sido una espina que he traído siempre. Pero, a pesar de las confesiones de Matt Groening, yo soy el único escritor de la canción. Michael Jackson trabajó conmigo en los coros y fue idea suya el nombre de la canción”. Este tema se popularizó tanto que estuvo en el número 1 en top 40 de charts en Reino Unido. 

Os dejo con el videoclip oficial de la canción y la letra:

Homer: Bart. Bart. Bart. *smash* BART!

Bart: I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything.

 

Bart: Yo! Hey, what's happening, dude?

I'm the guy with the rep for being rude.

Terrorizing people wherever I go,

It's not intentional, just keepin' the flow.

 

Fixin' test scores to get the best scores.

Droppin' banana peels all over the floor.

I'm the kid that made delinquency an art;

Last name Simpson, first name Bart.

 

I'm here today to introduce the next phase,

The next step in the big Bart craze.

I've got a dance real easy to do;

I learned it with no rhythm, and so can you.

 

So move your body if you've got the notion,

Front to back in a rock-like motion.

Now that you've got it, if you think you can,

Do it to the music -- that's the Bartman.

 

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart: Whoa!

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Bart: Shake it out, man!

Back: Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Bartman!

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Bart: Uh-huh.

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart:

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Bart: Whoa, mama!

Back: Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Whoa.

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

 

Bart: It wasn't long ago, just a couple of weeks,

I got in trouble, yeah, pretty deep.

Homer was yellin',

Homer: BART!

Bart: Mom was too,

Because I put mothballs in the beef stew.

 

Punishment time, in the air lurks gloom,

Sitting by myself, confined to my room.

When all else fails, nothin' else left to do,

I turn on the music, so I can feel the groove.

 

Back: Move your body, if you've got the notion.

Bart: Whoa, I'm feelin' the groove now, baby!

Back: Front to back in a rock-like motion.

Bart: Bring it back, whoa!

Back: Move you hips from side to side now.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

Back: Don't ya slip, let your feet glide now.

Bart: Whoa, Lisa. Ha!

Back: If ya got the groove, ya gotta use it.

Bart: Ha, ha ha!

Back: Light rhythm in time with the music.

Bart: Ha, haha. Check it out, man.

Back: You just might start a chain reaction.

Bart: If you can do the Bart, you're bad like Michael Jackson.

 

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart: Oh, yeah!

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Bart: Shake yo body!

Back: Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Huhp!

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Bart: Yeah, do the Bartman.

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart: Everybody, yeah, do the Bartman.

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Bart: Shake it out.

Back: Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Whoa, mama.

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Bart: I'm bad, I'm bad!

 

Back: Do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

Everybody back and forth, from side to side.

Back: Do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

Pick your feet up off the floor, let 'em glide!

Back: Do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

She can do it, he can do it, so can I.

Back: Do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

Now here's a dance beat that you can't deny.

 

Homer: Turn it down! Will you stop that infernal racket?!

Back: DO THE BARTMAN!!!

 

(Lisa plays saxophone)

 

Bart: Oh, my ears! Lisa! Put that saxophone away!

You can't touch this. *clatter*

I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything.

 

Oop!

 

Now I'm in the house, feeling good to be home,

Till Lisa starts blowing that damn saxophone.

And if it was mine, you know they'd take it away,

But still I'm feeling good, so that's okay.

 

I'm up in my room, just a singin' a song,

Listen to the kick drum, kickin' along.

Yeah Lisa likes jazz; she's their number one fan,

But I know I'm bad, 'cause I do the Bartman.

 

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart: Hey, everybody!

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Bart: Need I remind you?

Back: Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Ooh, I am Bart, Bart-man.

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Bart: Huh. Shake it out.

 

Back: Do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

Everybody back and forth, from side to side.

Back: Do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman!

She can do it, he can do it, so can I.

 

Back: Move your body, if you've got the notion.

Bart: Move it.

Back: Front to back in a rock-like motion.

Bart: Swing it!

Back: Move you hips from side to side now.

Don't ya slip, let your feet glide now.

If ya got the groove, ya gotta use it.

Bart: Dooby, dooby, dooby, dooby doo wop bop bop!

Back: Light rhythm in time with the music.

Bart: Dabba doo, dabba doo, dab it!

Back: You just might start a chain reaction.

Bart: Dabba dab doo dab

Hee, hee, hee. I'm a Bartman.

 

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart: Swing it, baby.

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Bart: Hoo-uh.

Back: Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Oh yeah. I'm bad. Real bad.

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Bart: Whoa, mama.

 

Back: Everybody, if you can, do the Bartman.

Bart: Do the Bartman.

Back: Shake your body, turn it out if you can, man.

Front to the back, to the side if you can, can.

Bart: Ha, ha!

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Bart: Oh yeah!

 

Back: Do the Bartman.

 

Back: Move your body, if you've got the notion.

Bart: You call that dancing? Ha!

Back: Front to back in a rock-like motion.

(Do the Bartman)

Bart: Watch this move.

Back: Move you hips from side to side now.

(Everybody in the house do the Bartman)

Bart: Ooh, uh uh, uh, ai ai. Yeah!

Back: Don't ya slip, let your feet glide now.

(Do the Bartman)

If ya got the groove, ya gotta use it.

Bart: Ha, ha ha! Swing it!

Back: Jack your body in time with the music.

You just might start a chain reaction.

Bart: Eat your heart out, Michael! Woop!

Back: Everybody in the house do the Bartman.

Homer: YOU'RE GROUNDED!!

Bart: Oh, wow, man.
