(Sung to "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious")

Supererogationisticextraobligation!
A consequence of moral theories fraught with complication!
Doing right can only lead to failure and frustration!
Supererogationisticextraobligation!

Try to universalize a lie and you will see
a side of Kant that just detests the contradictory,
to tell the truth is thus incumbent on us all the time
and if you can't remember that then say this catchy rhyme--

Supererogationisticextraobligation!
A consequence of moral theories fraught with complication!
Doing right can only lead to failure and frustration!
Supererogationisticextraobligation!

Mill around and you will find a nice morality
that's based on feeling good for all of you (and not just me),
but if you need it and your "you" is greatly pluralized
then my feelings aren't so good when they're cut down to size—

Supererogationisticextraobligation!
A consequence of moral theories fraught with complication!
Doing right can only lead to failure and frustration!
Supererogationisticextraobligation!
