Hercules, Lillias White, Cheryl Freeman, LaChanze, Roz Ryan, Vaneese Thomas & Tawatha Agee
Zero to Hero
[CALLIOPE]
Oh, yeah
Bless my soul, Herc was on a roll

[THALIA]
Person of the week in every Greek opinion poll

[TERPSICHORE]
What a pro!

[CALLIOPE]
Herc could stop a show
Point him at a monster and you're talkin' SRO
He was a no one

[MUSES]
A zero, zero

[CALLIOPE]
Now he's a honcho

[MUSES]
He's a hero

[CALLIOPE]
Here was a kid with his act down pat
[MUSES]
From zero to hero in no time flat
Zero to hero

[CALLIOPE]
Just like that

[MUSES]
When he smiled, the girls went wild
With oohs and aahs

[THALIA]
And they slapped his face on every vase

[CLIO]
On every vase!

[MUSES]
From appearance fees and royalties
Our Herc had cash to burn
Now nouveau riche and famous

[CALLIOPE]
He could tell you what's a Grecian urn

[MUSES]
Say amen! There he goes again
[MELPOMENE]
Sweet and undefeated
And an awesome ten for ten

[MUSES]
Folks lined up just to watch him flex

[THALIA]
And this perfect package
Packed a pair of pretty pecs

[MUSES]
Hercie, he comes, he sees, he conquers
Honey, the crowds were goin' bonkers
He showed the moxie, brains, and spunk
From zero to hero

[THALIA]
A major hunk

[MUSES]
Zero to hero

[CALLIOPE]
And who'd have thunk?
Who put the "glad" in "gladiator"?

[MUSES]
Hercules!

[MELPOMENE]
Whose daring deeds are great theatre?

[MUSES]
Hercules!

[MELPOMENE]
Isn't he bold?

[MALE ENSEMBLE]
Nobody braver

[TERPSICHORE]
Is he sweet?

[MUSES]
Our favorite flavor!
Hercules, Hercules
Hercules, Hercules
Hercules, Hercules
Bless my soul, Herc was on a roll
Undefeated
Riding high

[CALLIOPE]
And the nicest guy!

[MUSES]
Not conceited
He was a nothin' (A zero, zero)
Now he's a honcho (He's our hero)
He hit the heights at breakneck speed
From zero to hero
Herc is a hero
Now he's a hero

[CALLIOPE]
Oh, yeah
Yes, indeed!
