Going back to school now, boy, you’re a terror in disguise.
Bringing shrunken heads? I don’t think that’s very wise.
With a snake in your bed as you sleep through the night, you dream up mayhem quite diverse.
You know you’re something special, and I think it’s for the worse.
CHORUS: His name is Lio, and he’s one eccentric kid.
His main companion is a huge, land-dwelling squid.
He’s always doing things authorities forbid.
Oh, Lio, Lio, do you see what you just did?
I’ve seen you in a lab, and I’ve seen you out in space.
You lead kids to their deaths, if not the human race,
With the Reaper or a giant beast.
But then, I’m sure that your friends could use a feast.
Hey, now, woo, look at that; did young Eva shoot you down?
With the things you contrive to make her your wife,
You’re lucky you’re alive, alive, alive!
Don’t take that chance, ‘cause she won’t take your side
For nothing. I know what you’re thinkin’,
But she’d sooner go join your kitten in drinkin’.
His name is Lio, and it’s hard to guess his age.
He deals with characters across the comics page.
Most folks react to him with fear, disgust, or rage.
All of his friends belong within a tomb or cage.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo…
