Superheroes are popular year-round, but it’s especially fun to sing about people in costumes in October.

We sang the simplified version of Spider-Man at a family singalong at my branch (all three verses, but no bridge), and it was so fun and nostalgic that more adults joined in than for any other song. If you plan to sing beyond the first verse, I encourage you to provide the lyrics to your audience, as a lot of folks only remember the beginning.

This song was written by Paul Francis Webster and Robert Harris for the 1967 Spider-Man TV show. To try alternate chords, or to read the full lyrics see Ukulele-Tabs (Dm/Gm/A7), Ukulele Boogaloo (Em/Am/B7), or Ultimate-Guitar (C/F/G7).


Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can

Spins a web, any size
Catches thieves just like flies
      D    C                    G

Look out! Here comes the Spider-Man

Is he strong? Listen, bud. He's got radioactive blood

Can he swing from a thread?

Take a look overhead
      D      C                    G

Hey there! There goes the Spider-Man
