The Lyrics

It only seemed natural to me that I do a parody of "The Tick" with the song "Man Of Lamancha." The Tick is very much like Don Quixote in that he rushes forth to try to right all the wrongs in the world he encounters. Here is the link to the lyrics I referred to: http://homepages.together.net/~donutrun/quix.htm#IAmI
I shall impersonateThe Tick,
Come, use that thing you call imagination, and see him:
Blue, muscle bound, eyes that tell you there is nobody home.
A true superhero with the mind of a small pea.
Still his mission is clear.
He bounds forth into the city, righting all wrongs!

Hear me now; I have something important to say!
Yo! Crimes a foot and I must crush it!
I fight for truth and justice, and I'm here to stay!
Woe! Too many words! Please stop it!

I am I, The Mighty Blue Tick,
Superhero extreme!
Destiny calls chum, and I say SPOON!
No mere mortal am II'm not really some crazy loon!
Not really some crazy loon?
Onward chum to Glory! SPOON!!!!

I Arthur, uh, I'm Arthur
I am the Tick's trustworthy sidekick
In my moth suit I'm dumpy
I am scaredHELP ME TICK!

Hear me evil doers, scoundrels, and foul villains!
For the swift hand of justice is swift!
Your dastardly doings are a pain!
So, do you now get my drift?

I am I, The Mighty Blue Tick,
Superhero extreme!
Destiny calls chum, and I say SPOON!
No mere mortal am II'm not really some crazy loon!
Not really some crazy loon?
Onward chum to Glory! SPOON!!!!

Well, I'm going to have to google "the Tick" to appreciate this, but you have a very confident, lyrical way with words, Kim - 555

Hi Stuart! Look up the animated series of The Tick, not the live action series. I absolutely refuse to acknowledge THE LIVE ACTION SERIES. Thank you very much for your votes of confidence. ^-^

I'd just like to apologize for my introduction; the OS is "La Mancha" not "Lamancha," just wanted to get that out of the way before someone points it out to me.
