Tarzan wasn't a ladies' man
He'd just come along and scoop 'em up under his arm like that
Quick as a cat in the jungle

Clark Kent, now there was a real gent
He would not be caught sitting around in no junglescape
Dumb as an ape, doing nothing

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
Sometimes I despair the world will never see
Another man like him

Hey Bob, Supe had a straight job
Even though he could have smashed through any bank in the United States
He had the strength but he would not

Folks said his family were all dead
The planet crumbled but Superman, he forced himself to carry on
Forget Krypton and keep going

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
Sometimes I despair the world will never see
Another man like him

Tarzan was king of the jungle and lord over all of the apes
But he could hardly string together four words
I Tarzan, you Jane

Sometimes when Supe was stopping crimes
I'll bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back on man
Join Tarzan in the forest

But he stayed in the city
Kept on changing clothes in dirty old phone booths
'Til his work was through
And nothing to do but go on home

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
Sometimes I despair the world will never see
Another man like him
