Our local picture house was showing a Batman movie
You see this guy fly up in the sky, thought to myself, 'Why shouldn't I?'
So I bought a pair of wings, went up upon a wall
I was about to jump into the air when a guy from the street called
He said, 'Hey wait a minute! Don't you realize the danger?
What do you think you are, some kind of angel?'

I considered for a minute, realized he spoke the truth.
For the barbells on my eyelids only emphasized my youth
And the sawdust in my plimsolls means the same to him as me
But that's neither here nor further, so I spoke considerately
Now if you understand just what I'm trying to say,
Whatever you do, don't grin, you'll give the game away!'

By now a crowd had gathered and it seemed that all was lost
