I don't want to be like old George Reeves
I've got a long way to go in my career
That I had to be a Superman
Verse 1
As far as the planets in space.
Some changes are bound to take place.
Though gravity constantly weighs on my travels
Though I can be strong when my power unravels

I know I can fly when my plane hits the sky
But when I'm alone with the bed and the phone

Lay shot on the bedroom floor
But it can't crucify me no more."

"I'm red white and blue, I've got justice to do
But I'm an alien man from an alien land
I once ruled the world and when flags were unfurled
I performed for you live not on tape.
As you see by the blood on my cape."
Verse 4
"Well I never was real or stronger than steel.
And the video screen is a psychotic scene

I soon will be pulled from the air.
That a Superman still will be there!"
