Lyrics

Bless my soul
Herc was on a roll
Person of the week in every Greek opinion poll
What a pro
Herc could stop a show
Point him at a monster and you're talking 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 every vase (on every "vahse")

From appearance fees and royalties
Our Herc had cash to burn
Now nouveau riche and 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?
Hercules!
Whose daring deeds are great theater?
Hercules!
Is he bold?
No one braver
Is he sweet?
Our favorite flavor

Hercules
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules

Bless my soul
Herc was on a roll
Undefeated
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!

Who put the glad in gladiator?
Hercules!
Whose daring deeds are great theater?
Hercules!
Is he bold?
No one braver
Is he sweet?
Our favorite flavor
 
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules
Hercules 

No one's fool!
Now the boy's in school!
He's in training!
Smart and shy
And the nicest guy
Girl complaining 
He was a no one
A zero, zero
Give him a quick shot
He's our hero
He's almost likely to succeed

From zero to hero
Herc is a hero
He'll be a hero!
Wait and see
