One last hope

I won't say (I'm in love) Spä¯ Prologue

So, ya' wanna be a hero, kid?
Well, whoop-de-do!
I have been around the block before
With blockheads just like you.
Each and everyone a disappointment - 
Pain for which there ain't no ointment.
So much for excuses - Though a kid of Zeus'
is asking me to jump into the fray!
My answer is two words... O.K!
You win, Oh gods, Oy vay! 

I've given up hope that someone would come along.
A fellow who'd ring the bell for once, not the gong!
The king who wins trophies - Won't settle for low fees...
At least semi-pro fees, But NO! I get the greenhorn. 

I've been out to pasture pal, my ambition gone!
Content to spend lazy days and to graze my lawn.
But you need an advisor, A satyr, but wiser,
A good merchandiser, and oohh!
There goes my ulcer! 

I'm down to one last hope - and I HOPE it's you.
Though, kid, you're not exactly a dream come true.
I've trained enough turkeys who never came through.
You're my one last hope, so you'll have to do!
Demigods have faced the odds and ended up a mockery.
Don't believe the stories that you read on all the crockery.
To be a true hero, kid, is a dying art.
Like painting a masterpiece, it's a work of heart!
It takes more than sinew - comes down to what's in you,
You have to continue to grow... now that's more like it! 

I'm down to one last shot and my last high note
Before that blasted Underworld gets my goat.
My dreams are on you, kid - go make 'em come true!
Climb that uphill slope, keep pushin' that envelope!
You're my one last hope and kid it's up to you!
