This page was made Song of the Month for March 2020.

"High to Be Loathed" is a song from the season twenty-four episode "Gorgeous Grampa" of the animated television series The Simpsons. It features Mr. Burns as he tries (and ends up succeeding) to convince Abe Simpson to return to wrestling and reusing his old Glamorous Godfrey persona, arguing that being hated is the greatest feeling in the whole world by using the popularity of various villains from different properties as examples.

The song was performed by Burns' voice actor Harry Shearer.

Lyrics

Don't really care for chasing women.
Never was keen on booze.
Don't take cocaine or "Mary-Jane",
No, I get drunk on boos!

[Eh, that's "b-o-o-s", not "z-e" as before.]

[Uh... We get it...!]

Because

You've got to love to be hated.
Find the good in being bad.
Oh, the crowd is full of gentlemen,
But they've paid to see the cad.
Yes it's a hoot, a kick, a gas,
When you're the villain of the show.
Once you wear black you never go back,
It's a high to be loathed.

ChuckyStalin, Megatron,
Eric Cartman, Donkey Kong,
Vader, Nader, Simon Legree,
Terminators 1, 2, and 3.

Iago, Joker, Voldemort,
McEnroe on center court,
Mr. Burns and Skeletor,
Keep your good guys, what a snore.

When it's your head they wanna sever,
And your blood they wanna shed,
You know you're gonna live forever,
If everybody wants you dead.

So listen up because I've given,
The best advice you'll ever know.
So feel the thrill, I know you will,
It's a high to be loathed!
