Richard O'Brien - Return of Captain Invincible: 3 song lyrics        4,994 views

The Return of Captain Invincible (1983) (a.k.a. "Legend in Leotards") is a relatively unknown Australian movie for which the creative team of Richard O'Brien and Richard Hartley wrote three songs. All lyrics transcribed by ear, and some were then verified by Richard O'Brien himself (thanks to Q).

Who is the one true friend of America?
Friend of her people from farmer to Senator
Keeping America safe from the predator
So that the weak and the meek shall inherit her
Who in the fight for our rights always wins them all
Wielding justice from above!
Who stands for me and for you and for principle
Captain Invincible, that's who!

A wop bop pow!
And a right!
Put up a fight
And put out your lights
Wham bam splat!
And you K.O.
You are America's dream!
America
I'm wrapped
I'm trapped
I've been sapped
'Till I'm insensible
I'm trapped
I'm wrapped
In Captain Invincible

A wop bop pow!
And a right!
Put up a fight
And put out your lights
Wham bam splat!
And you K.O.
You are America's dream!
America
I'm wrapped
I'm trapped
I've been sapped
'Till I'm insensible
I'm trapped
I'm wrapped
In Captain Invincible
Invincible, Invincible
Invincible, Invincible

Captain Invincible

I had chums in the Wall Street crash
Who made a hash of their sums
And burned their mothers for cash
They turned into bums in a flash
I've known monkeys who were doing OK
Who met flunkies that would blow you away
They were junkies in less than a day
There are pushers and hoodlums of great dedication
That without hesitation supply medication
One minute you're a looker that looked
And the next you're a hooker that's hooked

Mr. Midnight

Long before the great Big Bang
There was evil in the Void
Long before the first bird sang
Evil was enjoyed

Captain Invincible

Long before the dawn of man
There was born an evil plan
Believe me when I say that
There's no other side to Midnight

Hold on, sit tight
You never ever did right
Roll on Midnight
You're spoiling for the big fight
Mr. Evil Midnight

Mr. Midnight

Long before the sands of time
There was evil doing well
Long before the birth of crime
There was evil building Hell

Captain Invincible

Long before the Age of Reason
Evil waged unholy treason
Believe me that no mother
Ever cried for Midnight

Chorus

He's a creature of a thousand disguises

Captain Invincible

But the man behind the mask
Remains the same

Chorus

If he's really who you think he is,
You're in for some surprises.
What a ???. What a ???.
What a ??? ??? ??? ???.

Mr. Midnight

Long before the crack of doom
There was evil in the air
Long before we left the womb
There was evil everywhere

Captain Invincible

Long before the troupe was found
Evil used to cruise around
Believe me, it's a one-way
Ride for Midnight

Captain Invincible and Chorus

Hold on, sit tight
You never ever did right
Roll on Midnight
You're spoiling for the big fight
Mr. Evil Midnight

Captain Invincible

Now I'm gonna keep my grip tight

Mr. Midnight

I'm going to take a big bite

Captain Invincible

Gonna get a big fight
Mr. Evil Midnight

Chorus

Mr. Evil Midnight

Mr. Midnight

Mai Tai say that I'm Old-Fashioned
Tres Vin Ordinaire
That I want a fresh Manhattan
With white anglo-saxons everywhere?
A Black Russian's
No Pink Lady
Give her the Singapore Sling
And Moscow Mule is not your baby
So Highball the Vodka and name your sting
Be a big shot, with a Bullshot
Be a Schwein mit der Wein
Have a short, or a Port, or a snort, of any sort
Asti Spumante, Uno Chianti

Are divine!

I got some economic Hocks
A Gin and Tonic on the rocks
Where angels fear to tread, I say
Choose your booze! Let's hit the Red-Eye!
Think of young Deanna Durbin
And how she sung on Rum and Bourbon
Or enhance your luncheon hour
With a Planter's Punch and a Whiskey Sour
If you feel like a wreck try a Horse's Neck
Or a Sherry with a cherry in the new fun size

If you don't name your poison
I'll have to get the boys in
The spirit of adventure opens one's eyes
If you don't name your poison
I'll have to get the boys in
And you'll never see another Tequila Sunrise

Live happily ever after
With a Chablis and some laughter
Between The Sheets is lovely
With a dizzy blonde and a popular bubbly
There's nothing sicker in society
Than a lack of liquor and sobriety
So, down the hatch
Here's mud in your eye
Take a bracer with a chaser
Wash it down with Rye!
Bottoms up. Stir a cup.
It'll put you in the pink
And all you have to do is
Drink Drink Drink Drink Driiiink
Drink Drink Drink Drink Driiiink
Drink Drink Drink Drink Driiiink
Drink Drink Drink Drink Driiiink
Driiiink, Driiiink
