"Zero to Hero" as written by David Zippel and Alan Menken....
Bless my soul
Herc was on a roll
Person of the week in ev'ry Greek opinion poll
What a pro
Herc could stop a show
Point him at a monster
And you're talkin' S.R.O.
He was a no one
A zero, zero
Now he's a honcho
He's a hero
Here was a kid with his act down pat
From zero to hero--
In no time flat
Zero to hero--
Just like that
When he smiled
The girls went wild
With oohs and aahs
And they slapped his face
On ev'ry vase
(On ev'ry "vahse")
From appearance fees and royalties
Out Herc had cash to burn
Now nouveau riche an' famous
He could tell you
What's a Grecian urn?
Say amen
There he goes again
Sweet and undefeated
And an awesome 10 for 10
Folks lined up
Just to watch him flex
And this perfect package
Packed a pair of pretty pecs
Hercie, he comes, he sees, he conquers
Honey, the crowds were going bonkers
He showed the moxie brains and spunk
From zero to hero--
A major hunk
Zero to hero--
And who'da thunk?
Who put the glad in gladiator?
Whose daring deeds are great the-a-ter?
Is he bold?
No one braver
Is he sweet?
Our fav'rite flavor
Hercules, Hercules
Bless my soul
Herc was on a roll
Riding high
And the nicest guy
Not conceited
He was a nothin'
A zero, zero
Now he's a honcho
He's a hero
He hit the heights at breakneck speed
From zero to hero
Herc is a hero
Now he's a hero
Yes indeed!

    General CommentWhy has no one commented on this song?!?!?!? It rocks!! Maybe that's just because I like the gospel aspect to it.

    Does anyone else find it funny that this song is sung by GOSPEL singers??? GOSPEL singers. When this story takes place a couple thousand years B.C. ....BEFORE Christ.... Weird choice of genre.
