Provided you have your hearing, you will enjoy listening to the actual song much more than reading the lyrics. And even if you don't know how to play MP3s, your computer does. C'mon, give it a try. It’s just 2 MB, about 7 minutes on a 56K modem.

Just 7 minutes—microwave popcorn takes longer than that, if you take your popcorn black.

Last chance to download the MP3!

Oh, all right. Scroll down for the lyrics.












"A Little Prayer (Wolverine’s Theme)"
from "X-Men"
Lyrics by John Aboud

Cold shiny claws
Pop out from my paws
To slay the evil mutants,
But they can’t stop
Anti-mutant laws
Which spread with such virulence.

Normal humans suspect
They’ll be crushed like insects
Sometime in the near future.
Professor X
Calmly interjects
Our wise but crippled tutor.

My mutant chromosomes
And the strong metal in my bones
Help me fight Sentinel robot drones
And I heal very quickly.

We’re special, see,
Born differently
The children of the Atom
Senator Kelly
Calls me "mutie"
He’ll taste my adamantium.

Cut you down to size
Cream and murderize
Sabertooth like so much spinach.
Rays from Cyclops’s eyes
Will finalize
Big fights I can not finish.

My mutant chromosomes
And the
Strong metal in my bones
Help me
Fight Sentinel robot drones
And I heal very quickly.
