"Promethean Ditty" is a song performed by Mr. Parentheses in Hercules: The Animated Series from the episode "Hercules and the Prometheus Affair".

Lyrics

Prometheus! The Most Enlightened-

Was the brightest of the Titans

Saw us stumbling in the night--

Decided that we needed Light!

Incurred the god's revengeful ire-

By stealing their great secret Fire

Up to Heaven one fine day-

Lit a torch from the Sun and ran away!

He gave this gift so me and you -

Could enjoy a summer barbecue

So food is not a dreadful bore-

We'd eat it cooked instead of raw!

He gave us Fire which did inspire-

Us all to seek for something higher

We learned to read and write and speak-

In poetry and books and Greek!

To build the City -

Found the State-To calculate and cogitate-

Invent philosophy and mirth-

Explore both corners of the Earth!

To pluck the harp and twang the lyre-

And found the world's first Grecian choir

Map out the heavens-study math-

Come home and have a nice hot bath!

Our forefathers were overjoyed -

The gods were fearsomely annoyed

Guess what they then went and did-

To this prominent Promethean kid?

The punishment was grim and dire- -

For stealing this great gift of fire-

They chained him to a rock -Absurd!!

Pecked at by a giant bird!

Henpecked for all Eternity-Prometheus alone

Nailed to a rock for all to see-

He is no "rolling stone"

How could this kindly Titan Giver-

Live without his precious liver?

Every night- despite the pain-

His liver would grow back again!

And every dawn of every morn

That eagle would return to pluck

His organ out and eat it up-

Oh Yuck o Yuck! What rotten luck!

Hail this noble Titan loner-he's the world's first Liver Donor!!!!!
