Workers:
So they say Captain Hammer’s become a crusader
Political, he’s cleaning up the streets
(About time)

Hammer Fans:
So they say that it’s real love
So romantic
(He signed this)

Penny:
So they say we’ll have blankets and beds
We can open by Monday thanks to you
(Thanks to me)

Newsanchors:
It’s the perfect story
So they say, a hero leading the way
Hammer’s called to glory
Let’s all be our best
(Next up, who’s gay?)

Hammer Fans:
So they say he saved her life
They say she works with the homeless
And doesn’t eat meat
We have a problem with her
(This is his hair)

Hammer:
This is so nice
I just might sleep with the same girl twice
They say it’s better the second time
They say you get to do the weird stuff
(We do the weird stuff)

Penny:
This is perfect for me, so they say
I guess he’s pretty ok
After years of stormy
Sailing have I finally found the bay?

Moist:
( "He’s still not picking up")

Horrible:
There’s no happy ending
So they say
Not for me anyway
Should I stop pretending

Horrible:
Stop pretending, take the chance to build a brand new day

Penny:
Or is this a brand new day

Hammer Fans:
This is his dry cleaning bill
Four sweater vests

    General CommentIt's so hard to pick favorites in the Dr. Horrible songs, but I think this might just be my favorite song.
    I love the "hammerettes" especially the last line. "Four sweater vests!" They're great singers.
    And then I just love how one verse can be so meaningful (penny/dr. horrible's about happy endings) and another verse from the same song can be so silly (captain hammer's)

    "We do the weird stuff!"

    General CommentI love the line "This is perfect for me, so they say, I guess he's pretty okay."

    General CommentHorrible:

    Most powerful line in the song, especially since it's said at the same time as Penny asking if she should stop pretending, almost as if he's answering her...

    oh, and the fact that she's sitting there alone with 2 yogurts when she's singing in the actual movie... it's so subtle but so powerful...
