The Comicbook Song - new video from the Socks

Recorded live as part of Socks In Space at this month's Edinburgh Fringe. the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre perform the comicbook song, now with added pictures.

As the month progressed it was clear this song wasn't getting as many laughs as our other material. Partly this is because it goes very quickly without pauses for laughs. But mostly it's because, I think, hardly anybody had heard of most of the comic characters the Socks were naming. So now it's all clear, I hope this helps.

THE COMICBOOK SONG (lyrics by Kev F)

There's Superman and Spiderman and Iron Man & Wolverine
There's X Men and Avengers & there's Thor & Hulk and then there's Green
Lantern and Fantastic Four and Wonder Woman and Capting
Marvel & America and Battyman & Ro-obin

There's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,  Catwoman & Jonah Hex
And Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Ghost Rider and Luthor, Lex
There's Watchmen, Titans, Silver Surfer, Tank Girl and even better
There's Kick Ass, Daredevil, The Phantom and V For Vendetta

There's Black Canary, Yellowjacket, Green arrow, & Black Panther
There's one guy called The Question but there's not one called the Answer
In short if you want inspiration there's no further you need look
Than finding ideas in the pages of the nearest comic book

There's Doctors Strange & Fate & Doctor Doom who's from Latveria
And Mighty Thor who first appeared  in Journey into Mysteria
There's Punisher & Ultimates &  Venom who's a big black suit
Or Power Pack or Rocketeer or Black Widow or Sabertoot'

You're probably acquainted with The Justice League or JLA
And Doom Patrol & Guardians Of The Galaxy & Birds Of Prey
And 2 Face & the Penguin, The Sub Mariner & Collosus
The Human Torch, The Riddler, Nick Fury & Doctor Octopus

There's Supergirl & Spawn & Blade The Flash Joker & Marvel Mizz
And Dennis the Menace and Rodger The Dodger & Billy Whizz
That is a tiny fraction of the characters who have passed through
I could read all the rest but I simply can't be arsed to
