The Monorail is a song from the Simpsons episode "Marge vs. THe Monorail." In the song, Lyle Lanley persuades the people of Springfield to buy a monorail despite their original plan to fix Main Street prior to Marge's suggestion after she discovers Mr. Burns hiding nuclear waste in the park. Marge is appalled at this by the town's vote.
Lyle Lanley: Well, sir, there's nothing on earth like a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car Monorail! What'd I say? Flanders: Monorail! Lanley: What's it called? Patty & Selma: Monorail! Lanley: That's right! Monorail! [crowd chants 'Monorail']
Miss Hoover: I hear those things are awfully loud... Lanley: It glides as softly as a cloud Apu: Is there a chance the track could bend? Lanley: Not on your life, my Hindu friend.
Barney: What about us brain-dead slobs? Lanley: You'll be given cushy jobs Abe: Were you sent here by the devil? Lanley: No, good sir, I'm on the level.
Wiggum: The ring came off my pudding can Lanley: Take my pen knife, my good man I swear it's Springfield's only choice Throw up your hands and raise your voice! All: Monorail! Lanley: What's it called? All: Monorail! Lanley: Once again... All: Monorail!
Marge: But Main Street's still all cracked and broken... Bart: Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken! All: Monorail! Monorail! Monorail! [big finish] Monorail! Homer: Mono... D'oh!

- It is a parody of songs such as "Rock Island" and "Ya Got Trouble" from the musical Meredith Willson's The Music Man, where instead of lyrics being sung, they are spoken in a kind of crazy version of Gilbert-and-Sullivan-esque patter.
