Benedict Cumberbatch

by Insane Ian



This is a song about one of the hottest rising stars on both stage and screen, and I may or may not have gotten all the information for this song from Wikipedia.


Benedict Cumberbatch was born one English summer’s day.
In London, England he was raised by Wanda & Timothy.
Both were actors so he studied the dramatic arts
at Manchester University.

His first big breakthrough role was in 2004
when he portrayed the physicist Stephen Hawking.
Not too long after this he became a household name
when solving crimes as Sherlock was his thing.

With all his acting accolades, and numerous awards
he never faltered from his goals or the pitfalls of fame.
And though his name is so well known in mentioned households,
they struggle to correctly say his name.

Uhh…his name came up again when in Star Trek he played
The villain Khan who apparently was both Indian and white
The Hobbit films all feature him as the great dragon Smaug
‘cause he’s part dragon, wait that isn’t right…

His name is known throughout the land, heard both far and wide
as the true ruler of the Kingdom of the land of Oz
And soon he’ll play young Doctor Strange for the Marvel films
To bring more nerdy subjects to his cause

Wait…what’s going on here?
I’m just singing what i’m given, on this paper, how it’s written.
The one drawback to Cumberbatch: his Wiki page looks like it’s hacked.

He plays the Imitation Game when he is done with Chess
He’s such a War Horse when it comes to folding his laundry
They say he shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
And I hear tell his real name is Lee
