The Lyrics

When comic books live up to the "comic" part...
First just a sight gag in a Man-Thing plight
A Donald the Duck stand-in, right
Could've been it, but that's a lie
Steve Gerber loved characters so strange
And brought the duck back again
Once Disney gave him pants
Oh

This duck named Howard is so silly
Tears in my eyes from laughin' at this dork
It never takes itself seri-iously-y
But all Howard wants is just a normal life, nothin' more
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Not a real superhero, you heard right
Just a duck who, one strange ni-ight
Popped up in Cleveland mad as shite, oh
He tries to work a job from day to day
With Beverly, she's a ba-abe
The tension there is kinda strange
A-ba-da-boh

This duck named Howard can be grumpy
Heroic life is not what he asked for
But he still keeps gettin' dragged i-in, he's pee-eeved
Ain't too much too ask to have a normal life, nothin' more
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Doesn't have workin' wi-ings
No powers at all, sti-inks
This comic's out there and tha-a-at's fine (that's just fi-ine)
Oh, oh (that's just fi-ine)
Sometimes the super schti-ick
It gets borin' really qui-uick
And so what I do-o
Is check out this weird-ass comic book, won't you?

This duck named Howard, he works for me
Rollin' his eyes as if it was a cho-o-o-o-ore
To deal with cross-dimension no-onsense, gee-eez
But he's got no choice, just wants a normal life, nothin' more
This du-uck named Howard had a-a movie
And it was shite, most of the time a bo-o-o-o-ore
It plain la-acked the right kind of co-omic chee-eese
Not a good start for Marvel films, for su-oo-u-oo-u-u-ure
This duck named Howard, love his series (oh-oh, yeah, yeah-eah-eah)
Hope it's revived, it was far from a bo-o-o-o-ore (yeah-eah-eah-eah)
Maybe Guardians of the Ga-alaxy-y (fingers crossed, yeah, ah-ah)
Volume 2 will have another cameo, maybe more (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-eah-eah)

Why do you let it lick you like that? Gross. *sip* Ahh, it burns going down. Eugh. Weh.

the only exposure I've had to Howard The Duck, was through hearing about how horrible the movie was. never knew there was a comic book, that's interesting. 5s
P.S. thumbs up for song choice! I bloody love this song! although, after reading Adam Levine's comments about Donald Trump (NOT Duck! Trump I say, Trump!) I get the feeling that Levine's kind of an a-hole. a talented a-hole, but an a-hole nonetheless.

Jon, I wouldn't waste my time with the "Howard the Duck" movie. But the more adult "Duckman" series is great! Ran from 1994-1997. Wish some channel would rerun that series!

^ Thanks, Rob! I've been curious about this "Duckman" series. it was made by Klasky-Csupo, who also made "Rugrats" which I loved watching in the '90s! also, it starred Jason Alexander as the voice of the main character. that dude's almost always guaranteed comedy! I wonder if any episodes are on youtube...

Marvel has announced a new R-rated "Howard the Duck" movie to be filmed and for Howard to possibly appear in "Guardians of the Galaxy 2!" He was in the end credits stinger, last GoG! IIRC, the original "Howard the Duck" produced by Lucas in the '80s was the first Marvel film!

^ interesting. and thanks for the "Duckman" clip, someone in the comments of that video gave Jason Alexander props for not needing to take a breath during that rant. I'm with them, the guy IS talented!
