  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Music Lyrics Explained (1) And the first

  • one we're going to cover is the Spider-man Theme song. Okay. So I just have important

  • notes on the board and I'm actually going to read the lyrics and review it as

  • we go along. So let's start. Spider-man, Spider-man

  • does whatever a spider can. All right. So when you say, does whatever a spider can,

  • it means that he has the same skills and the same ability that a spider has.

  • All right. So I mean the first thing you could look at is his strength. We know that a

  • spider could hold up to a hundred and seventy times their weight. So his

  • strength was supposed to increase that much. So like for example if he was

  • really just like 150 pounds you know, he was a teenager. Say, he was that much then

  • he could hold over 25,000 pounds. That's what it would mean.

  • So first his strength. So he has the strength like a spider because a

  • spider can lift a lot more than their body weight. And well of course we all

  • know about the the spider web that he can shoot out of his wrist. Literally, so

  • of course these would be other skills or abilities that a spider has. So when we

  • say Spider-man, Spider-man does whatever a spider can. That's what they're talking

  • about. Another one that they don't often cover in the movies, this idea but

  • this idea was very true in the comic book. Like if you had read the comic book

  • as a kid and originally the cartoon that was the original very old cartoon that

  • was on the TV series. We often heard about spidey sense. That you know , just

  • like a spider may have a little bit of what they call like a sixth sense of

  • danger. I don't know I yeah and I do kind of remember this like as a kid when I

  • read Spider-man and sometimes I seen a spider and it does seem like a spider

  • does have a little bit. Like if you focus in on a spider,

  • sometimes this, it seems like the spider knows.

  • He kind of freezes and he stops and then if he thinks he's going to go after him.

  • Then he will run very, very quickly, but he does seem like he has some sort of a

  • sense. This ability. So that's why in the comic book you often hear about a spidey sense that they

  • don't, we don't. We didn't usually see this in the movies All right. So let's

  • let's continue along with the lyrics here. So Spider-man Spider-man does

  • whatever a spider can, spins a web. All right. Of course if we say spin just if

  • an insect spins, especially a spider. It makes a thread it produces from its body.

  • So that's what we say, we say that an insect could spin a thread or a web. So

  • spiders definitely spin a web. So yeah so spins a web any size , of course very,

  • very big. We see this. It is pretty amazing of course. If this were really

  • possible that somebody could be you know get DNA of a spider in them and they

  • could actually shoot webs from their wrists, boy ! They would have to eat a lot

  • to produce that much energy to produce that many webs. But anyway, that's what it

  • means. So spins a web anytime. Catches thieves just like flies. Yeah, well. This

  • is pretty good. This is pretty cool. This idea that he could you know, of course

  • he's supposed to be like a spider, so it's a spider web. Catches thieves just

  • like flies, very often he would put a web, spider web around especially regular

  • criminals like regular burglars or something like that. Of course in the

  • comic books he usually fights supervillains

  • too. So but anyway, that's what we mean. Catches thieves just like flies, look out

  • here comes the Spider-man. All right that's how the song goes.

  • Yes. Is he strong ? is he strong ? Is he powerful ? Well, we kind of covered that

  • already. Because he's supposed to have the ability of a spider. Is he strong

  • listen bud. All right this was part of the lyrics. Bud, bud as we say but is

  • actually short for buddy. Okay. So bud short for buddy often use

  • when talking to a man you do not know. Usually in an annoyed way.

  • It's not always very polite, like sometimes you say hey buddy that's my

  • seat. Hey hey buddy, can you move ? Kind of like that. It's not really offensive, but

  • it sounds like you might be a little annoyed at someone and they, we usually

  • use it with a man. But it's part of the song. It's kind of cool. It goes in with

  • the lyrics . Listen bud , he's got radioactive blood. Well, of course if

  • you've watched Spider-man movies or you seen the you know, you read the original

  • comic book, you know that's the origin of Spider-Man. He gets bitten by a

  • radioactive spider and that's how he eventually gets to have the powers of

  • like a spider mixed in with him. So he's got radioactive blood. Can he swing from a

  • thread. All right. Well just like we said here. With a spinning web. It's a thread, a

  • thread is like a long piece of something, especially a fiber like something you

  • make a material out of. So yeah, so he could spin a web so . Can he swing from

  • a thread ? Take a look overhead. So hey there, there goes the Spider-man. Right.

  • That's exactly how they use it. And then it goes into another chorus. In the chill

  • of night at the scene of a crime. So here of course if we say chill in this sense,

  • chill could have two meanings that both could apply here.

  • You could have chill meaning a feeling of fear. You know, Maybe it is scary being

  • out in the middle of the night or it could be a feeling of cold. We do know

  • the temperature actually does go down you know after midnight or late at night.

  • So that's what they say. So in the chill of night at the scene of a crime. Like a

  • streak of light, he arrives just in time. All right. So if we say streak, a streak

  • here is a line of something that is different in color. I remember when I

  • used to watch the old cartoon they actually almost had like a spotlight

  • come down like a police spotlight. So that would be like a streak of light. But

  • of course you could have other streaks. So we often see you know, women might

  • have a streak in the hair, for a special style or design. So this is what

  • we mean by streak. So in the chill of night at the scene of a crime. Like a streak of light

  • he arrives just in time. Spider-man, Spider-man. And then of course

  • they repeat the other chorus again. You know, does whatever a spider can. Yes

  • Arrives just in time. Oh, he arrives just the time. Spider-man, Spider-man friendly

  • neighborhood Spider-man. Oh wealth and fame he's ignored, action is his reward.

  • All right so if you say wealth and fame, he's ignored. Basically it's, it's showing

  • that Spider-man's not doing this for the money. He's not doing this to become

  • famous. He's not actually making money from it. He was just doing it out of his

  • sense of morality. Remember even in the first movie they kind of had that line

  • you know, that remember his Uncle Ben supposedly told him. You know with, with

  • great strength comes great responsibility. So he's actually doing it

  • out of his sense of responsibility. So he's he's not doing it for fame. He's not

  • doing it for wealth. So that's how it goes. Basically friendly neighborhood

  • Spider-man wealth and fame, he's ignored. I think means he has ignored it. He's

  • ignoring wealth and fame that's not what he's about. That's not what he's going

  • for. Action is his reward. Well maybe, maybe the accomplishment of

  • feeling like you're doing the right thing.

  • Action is his reward. To him life is a great big bang-up. All right .Bang-up. Yeah

  • this is I think it's a little bit it was it was more commonly used I think in the

  • 60s and 70s. A bang-up is an act of doing physical damage. You know, It's obviously

  • he's got a fight. So life is a great big bang-up. Whenever there's a hang-up.

  • All right. A hang up,, hang up I think was a kind of a common term . Aso around the

  • 60s and 70s When this song was originally written. If someone has a

  • hang-up. He or she has a feeling of anxiety or fear of something. All right.

  • So that's what they mean by that. To him, life is a great big bang-up. Whenever

  • there's a hang-up. You'll find the Spider-man. Well that's that's pretty much the way

  • it goes. Actually I think it's kind of a cool theme song for a superhero. One

  • of the best I've actually heard. So anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's

  • clear. I hope it was enjoyable for you. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
