The Lyrics

Riding a bike with no handlebars is nothing compared to some of the things this Greek Hero did.
I can start a fight with a Minotaur
a Minotaur
a Minotaur

I can win a fight with a Minotaur
a Minotaur
a Minotaur

Hercules,Hercules
More powerful than the god Ares
That's right
and I'm a mythic Hero
you can ask my brother,Iphicles
I can show you how I beat a foe
down with my fists just for the record
I can break apart anything I hold
'til no one can put it back together
I have the strength of a hundred men
I coined the term,"Olympian"
I know all the dudes from,"The Odyssey"
And I'm proud to be Athenian
I even took on a Hydra (Wuss!)
Homer wrote about it in his book
That fight,not long it took
I can do anything that I want,cuz-look:

Out of Zeus's kids,I'm number 1
I'm number 1
I'm number 1

When you mess with me,it's not much fun
It's not much fun
It's not much fun

Fight with Me?
Fight with me?
When you try that,you're lucky to be
ALIVE
close to critical,
when I am done,a doc you'll need

I can drink liquor like a drunken Centaur
I can keep Augeus' stables clean.
I can make a monster hit the floor
when I punch a Cyclops in the spleen.

I can survive all of Heras' tricks
I can make Hades give up (and fix!) Cerebus.
I know how to string an arrow
And then make an army wanna duck for cover.

Princesses,Queens and many others
Once were my foes,now they're my lovers.
I've defied Fates who control the future.
I can do anything my mind is put to.

I'm a better man than Bellerophon
Than Bellerophon
Than Bellerophon
I knock on Zues'door,they let me in
They let me in.
They let me in.

Hercules
Hercules
Power you cannot stop.
'Cuz I never tire from
watching jaws go drop

My legend's known
From shore to shore.
Nigh-unstoppable
Of that I'm sure.

My tale's written in the constellations
Of all my wars with the Centaur nations.
flip 'em off like the Birds Stymphalian.
I'm not Lion-I am part Nemean.

I can hurl a spear right 'cross the horizon
and make it come 'round back,and
I can do anything with no exception.
I am the strongest in all the land.

I slam mighty Titans just like little punks
Like little punks
Like little punks
and I can crush a boulder with a single grope
with a single grope
with a single grope
And I'll let the whole world know I am Hercules
I am Hercules
I am Hercules
I am Hercules
I am Hercules
I am Hercules

Strength personified,I am Hercules
I'm Hercules
I'm Hercules

"Til the day I die,I am Hercules
Not Heracles
But Hercules.

To quote Eddie Murphy from Nutty Professor: "Hercules, Hercules" (holds up arm to show muscles). You muscled your way out of this one! Superhuman powers are 555%!

That was a mighty heroic parody you did there. Nice. 555! I studied folklore and mythology when I was in college.
