It may not feel too classy
Begging just to eat
But you know who does that? Lassie
And she always gets a treat

So you wonder what your part is
Because you’re homeless and depressed
But home is where the heart is
So your real home’s in your chest

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s got villains they must face
They’re not as cool as mine
But folks you know it’s fine to know your place

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
In their own not-that-heroic way

So I thank my girlfriend Penny
(Yeah, we totally had sex)
She showed me there’s so many
Different muscles I can flex

There’s the deltoids of compassion
There’s the abs of being kind
It’s not enough to bash in heads
You’ve got to bash in minds

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s got something they can do
Get up go out and fly
Especially that guy, he smells like poo

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
You and you and mostly me and you

I’m poverty’s new sherrif
And I’m bashing in the slums
A hero doesn’t care if you’re a bunch of scary
Alcoholic bums

(Everybody!)

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone can blaze a hero’s trail
Don’t worry if it’s hard,
If you’re not a friggin ‘tard you will prevail

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone a hero in their –

    General CommentI didn't like this one much the first few times, but now I really like it. Nathan is SO convincing as Captain Hammer.
