Lyrics

Good evening all you gentlemen, mobsters, creeps and crooks
Men in tights come after you, and still you’re off the hook
For those who scare and terrorize, it’s the dawn of a brand new day
You scum can just simply call us, the one and only Birds of Prey

Green Lantern has his special ring (pretty strong that little thing)
Blue Beetle’s deeds are really swell (but who will bring him out of his shell?)
Flash’s foes, they finish last, too bad sometimes he’s just too fast

While all the boys can always save the day
No one does it better than the Birds of Prey (the one and only Birds of Prey)
While all the boys can always save the day
No one does it better, no one does it better than the Birds of Prey

Green Arrow has heroic traits, that is when he’s shooting straight (Hey!) (I’m just saying.)
Aquaman’s always courageous, his little fish, less outrageous
Plastic Man can expand, becomes putty in our hands

While all the boys can keep you punks at bay No one does it better than the Birds of Prey (the one and only Birds of Prey)
While all the boys can always save the day
No one does it better, no one does it better than the Birds of Prey

Batman throws his bat-a-rang, what a weapon, what a bang
Check out that utility belt, sure can make a girl’s heart melt
He’s always right there for the save, I’d like to see his secret cave

While Batman does things in his special way
He do it better with the Birds of Prey (the one and only Birds of Prey)
While Batman always seems to save the day
No one does it better, no one does it better than the Birds of Prey
Birds of Prey

(...Meow.)

Reception

While fan reception to the song has mostly been positive, many moral guardians and parents protested due to the lyrics and nature of the song. As the episode aired in Australia before coming to the U.S, WB was forced to change at least one supposedly 'racy' shot in the musical number.
