HEMANTIS

from by Letter Seventeen

lyrics

Raised in the Ozarks in witness protection, his parents turned on the mob

As a boy, he loved "We Are the World," now saving it is his job

A master of mystery, even he's not allowed to know his own name

He wants to live forever, in the eighties he landed a role in the movie "Fame"



Plaid shirt singing showtunes, when he has you at gunpoint, he'll say "yous guys"

Hillbilly ex-Mafia anti-nuke theatrical international spy



Master of gadgets, modern-day James Bond, like Batman in plaid shirts and clogs

Likes to say danger's his middle name, at least according to his mom

It all sounds surreal, this modern-day hero, but every word of this is true

You may laugh now, but when the tables are turned, you'll be glad he's here to save you



And then there's the part where the hero gets the girl

Our man, he always gets the girl

By hook or by crook, the hero gets the girl

And you know HEMANTIS will always get the girl

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
