I saw superman
Sitting with his head in his hands
I offered my help very nicely
At first he declined politely
I persisted superman
Why are you crying?
What can there be to be so sad about,
When you're so good at flying?

He said...
Oh peggy sue,
I don't know what to do,
I keep being played by all these different actors,
some of them are great, and some of them are wankers,
I've been wearing the same outfit since the 30's,
Everyone else gets to change there clothes,
I still have to wear these...
Everyone thinks it's so great being Superman,
I'll tell you its a sham, I tell you its a sham,
Everyone thinks it's so great,
Everyone thinks its super duper,
I don't feel that much like a superman,
I feel more like a super loser.

I said
Superman,
lift you head up from your hands
I must admit you're I really think you're looking at this all the wrong way.
I know plenty of guys who would give their right foot and probably their left foot too,
just to be you.

He said,
Oh Peggy Sue,
I get so very blue,
You see I'm in love with Lois Lane,
and she doesn't even know my real name!
And all I really want is to have the right to wear my pants underneath my tights,
Everyone thinks its so great being so great,
being superman,
I tell you its a sham
