The Ballad of Hercules

(To the tune of "The Ballad of Jed Clampett"; The Beverly Hillbillies)

Come and listen to my story about a guy named Herc
A decent Grecian fella no one would call a jerk
Out one day he was saving someone's life
When the Queen of the Gods barbecued his wife
Charbroiled her
And his kids

Well the first thing you know our Herc's a hero-man
Travels far and wide to lend a helping hand
Convinced his buddy Iolaus to join him on his quest
And now they roam the world fighting Hera's best
Villains, that is
Monsters, too
And warlords

Now we would like to thank you folks for kindly stopping by
To watch our hero Hercules--That man is quite a guy
You're all invited back each week to this locality
To see him stomp some more bad guys and other monstrosities!

Y'all take care now, ya hear
