DISNEY DOES HERCULES


From the Disney movie “Hercules” (1997) comes the song “Long Ago” by Alan Menken (music) and David Zippel (lyrics). “Go the Distance” was the big song from the movie though–it won both the Oscar (R) and Golden Globe (R) for Best Original Song that year.

LONG AGO

[Narrator:]
Long ago, in the far away land of ancient Greece
there was a golden age of powerful gods extraordinary heroes
and greatest and strongest of all these Heroes was the mighty
Hercules.
But what is the measure of a true hero? Now, that is what our
story …

[Muses:]
Will you listen to him?
He’s making the story sound like some Greek tragedy.
Lighten up, dude.
We’ll take it from here, darling.

[Narrator:]
You go, girls …

[Muses:] We are the muses.
Goddesses of the arts
and proclaimers of heroes.
Heroes like Hercules.
Honey, you mean Hunkules!
I’d like to make some sweet music of it
Our story actually begins long before Hercules
Many Aeons ago …

[Hal Leonard/Walt Disney Music Publishing]
