The Lyrics

I felt DC's epic maxi-series needed an epic song....hope you like it!
A long, long time ago
I can still remmeber when
The JSA and Earth 2 were intact
And once a year they'd get the chance
For the League and Society to cross paths
And a menace to both earths would be beaten back
But '85 it made me shiver
With every issue they delivered
I saw it on the cover
They'd just destroyed another
I can't remember who I blamed
Wished it was all Mxyzptlk's game
Gardner Fox hung his head in shame
The night the Crisis came

Bye, bye, to Earth Double I
One world would live, all the others would die
The guy who came up with this must've been high
Saying "'Hey, let's let the multiverse die"
"Hey, let's let the multiverse die"

Did you write the books each month
Without questioning it even once
Because the office told you so
And did you watch as worlds were killed
All so the editors could rebuild
And can you tell me what became of Mr. Zero?
Well, I knew the universe had changed
As I caught a Beam with Adam Strange
All worlds were gone but one
It wasn't even Earth-1
It was a crime the size of Tobias Whale
As all the heroes tried but failed
They couldn't find their holy grail
The night the Crisis came

I started saying....
Bye, bye, to Earth Double I
One world would live, all the others would die
The guy who came up with this must've been high
Saying "'Hey, let's let the multiverse die"
"Hey, let's let the multiverse die"

Eighteen years, Earth-1's been alone
Bizarro became a genetic clone
And Wonder Woman had not debuted
The Batman became all too grim
"Arthur Curry" would no longer swim
Say goodbyr to Kal-L of Eath-2
Where did all the answers lie?
Did Kara Zor-El have to die?
Was lost in this devil's game
Now no one knows her name!
We lost Katar Hol and a Flash
The end was near, a cosmic crash
Did I hear a faint "Hulk Samsh!"?
The night the Crisis came

We startied saying...
Bye, bye, to Earth Double I
One world would live, all the others would die
The guy who came up with this must've been high
Saying "'Hey, let's let the multiverse die"
"Hey, let's let the multiverse die"

I walked onto the Planet floor
Where Kal fought Luthor years before
But Luthor swore he'd never been in jail
And the answer didn't lie on Mars
Or out namong the Qwardian stars
When all the heroes had tried and failed
Well, it was DC's darkest night
New Generations came to write
I heard Stan Lee laughing with delight
The night the Crisis came

We all were mourning...
Bye, bye, to Earth Double I
One world would live, all the others would die
The guy who came up with this must've been high
Saying "'Hey, let's let the multiverse die"
"Hey, let's let the multiverse die"

Just my voice saying....
Bye, bye, to Earth Double I
One world would live, all the others would die
The guy who came up with this must've been high
Saying "'Hey, let's let the multiverse die"

Had to dock you a point for the second line in the chorus but I am pleased that you spelled "Mxyzptlk" right ;-)

Rest in peace, Barry Allen. (That's the second and best Flash, not the drummer for Def Leppard!)
