D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: The M.M.M.S. Is Here!

Not much I can say about this recording that isn’t apparent from just listening to it. I still get a lump in my throat when I hear those word “you belong.” Before I get all choked up and embarrass myself, let’s all listen to the Merry Marvel Marching Society March. Excuse me, I’ve got something in my eye.

Hey, let’s all sing along!

Stand a little straighter. Walk a little prouder. Be an innovator. Laugh a little louder. Grow forever greater. We can show you how to. And where will you be then? You’ll belong, you’ll belong, you’ll belong, you’ll belong to the Merry Marvel Marching Society. March along, march along, march along to the song of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. If you growl, if you groan with a down sour outlook, if you howl, if you moan, you can lose your sour grouse by keeping trim and in step with the vim and the pep of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. Be an early riser. Strive to be ambitious. Speak a little wiser. Try to be judicious. Be a good advisor, never ever vicious. And where will you be then?

Face front… Lift your head… You’re on the winning team… ‘NUFF SAID! You’ll belong, you’ll belong, you’ll belong, you’ll belong to the Merry Marvel Marching Society. March along, march along, march along to the song of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. If you growl, if you groan, and your star is nearly zero, do not howl, do not moan, you can be a superhero, marching right along to the fighting song of the Merry Marvel Marching Society. Stand a little straighter. Walk a little prouder. Be an innovator. Laugh a little louder. Grow forever greater. We can show you how to. And where will you be then…?

Next week, tune in for more comics tunes…

    To me, it sounds like:
    “…with a dour, sour outlook”
    “…you can lose your sauerkraut” (or maybe “sour pout”)
    “…and your score is nearly zero”

    Great memories. Thanks.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
