A Man's Gotta Do (reprise)

A Man's Gotta Do is the fourth song of Act I of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, interpreted by Dr. Horrible, and Captain Hammer. It deals with Dr. Horrible's decision of following his plan, instead of following Penny, and Captain Hammer's choice to "save the day", although in a pompous way.


A man’s gotta do
What a man’s gotta do
Don’t plan the plan
If you can’t follow through

All that matters
Taking matters into your own hands
Soon I’ll control everything
My wish is your command

Stand back everyone,
Nothing here to see
Just imminent danger
In the middle of it, me

Yes, Captain Hammer’s here
Hair blowing in the breeze
The day needs my saving expertise

A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do
It seems destiny ends with me saving you
The only doom that’s looming is you loving me to death
So I’ll give you a sec to catch your breath
