With Great Power Comes Great Power Bills Lyrics (by Tom Smith)
[back on Earth....]
Right! Off to Scotland Yard, you lot!
Rr! We'd have won if not for that idiot with the syrup!
When you put on the uniform, pull on the tights,
Squeeze into costume, go out in the lights,
You know that you're going to get into fights,
And some of them you lose.
When you go for the action, there's always the chance
That you'll end up in traction from one deadly dance,
But we're of the faction that finds the romance
In the way of life we choose.
With great power comes great power bills,
Every day that we play, we must pay for the thrills,
But we're rewarded with curing society's ills,
At least as much as we can,
Don't underestimate the power of one man.
Without you, those evil cranks
Would have everyone enslaved
Let me be the first to express the thanks
Of the grateful world you've saved.
Endorsement contracts should fill your coffer,
And a TV appearance blitzkreig,
But I'm afraid that all we have to offer
Is membership in our League.
Whaddaya say... um... what's your code name, anyway?
... Well, actually...
Hold it right there! He's known as... The Waffle!
Honey! You said it!
Hey, if you can save the world, I can say the name.
GEORGE [turns to Maxicron, shrugs]
Hmmm. Waffle. "Making the world safe for breakfast!" We can work with this. Waffle, welcome to the Hero League!
[cheers and applause]
WAFFLE [feeling bold]
IT'S BATTERIN' TI-
Ummm... Baby steps.
... You're right, Gracie. Go for it, hero!
IT'S BATTERIN' TIME!
... We are so gonna regret this.
WAFFLE, MAXICRON, FENDERBENDER
You can feel the electricity down to your socks,
Don't try something illicit, or you're in for a shock,
We're all summa cum laude in the School of Hard Knocks,
So you better spread the news.
With great power comes a great power bill,
And we know that the program we go with can kill,
But we know we can win, and we know that we will,
We swear we'll make you proud
ALL THE HEROES
So sing it really loud.
Be a superhero, you just have to care,
And leave everyplace better than when you were first there,
Give yourself just one chance, and you'll take to the air,
And you're never gonna fall,
Inside every one of you is the greatest
Su... per... hero of them all!
[elsewhere: a cell door slamming shut]
This is not over, Waffle! Dr. Thaddeus Mallevo shall have his revenge!
Be quiet, you fool! The guards will hear!
Oh, rapture! It's Body Cavity Search Day....
