"Superman" as written by Timothy Bright, Chad Fischer, Christopher Link and Roy Hammond....
Out the door
Just in time
Head down the 4-0-5
Gotta meet the new boss by 8 am
The phone rings in the car
The wife is working hard
She's running late tonight again
Well I know what I've been told
You gotta work to feed the soul
But I can't do this all on my own
No I'm
I'm no superman
I'm no superman
And you've got your love online
You think you're doing fine
But you're just plugged into the wall
And that deck of tarot cards
Won't get you very far
There ain't no hand to break your fall
Well I know what I've been told
You gotta know just when to fold
But I can't do this all on my own
I know
I'm no superman
I'm no superman
(That's right)
You've crossed the finish line
Won the race but you lost your mind
Was it worth it after all?
I need you here with me
Cause love is all we need
Just take a hold of the hand that breaks the fall
Well I know what I've been told
Gotta break free to break the mold
But I can't do this all on my own
No I can't do this all on my own
I'm no
Then I'm no
Superman
I'm no superman
I'm no superman
Someday we'll be together
I'm no superman
Someday
Someday we'll be together
Someday
I'm no superman

    General CommentThis is a good song. I take it to mean that there is no end goal in life, so to speak, no matter how hard you work or how hard you try, there's no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (sorry for the horrible metaphor). You can't rely on fate or destiny or whatever to just suddenly make it easy for you- "that deck of tarot cards, won't get you very far, there ain't no hand to break your fall" , where hand means the hand of cards we're dealt in life, everyone dreams one day they'll just 'draw an ace' or what have you, that ends the game with you victorious (or drawing a card from a tarot deck that grants you wealth/happiness/etc). The only thing that's important is being there for people to rely on when things truly get difficult, or just enjoy being together as you go through life, because in the end, that's all there is, there's no "race" to win it all.

    Sorry for over-analyzing. Lots of other great songs on the scrubs soundtrack as well, as many people already mentioned.

    General CommentYes it is! I spent so long looking for the song. I think I actually found it by mistake. I added it so at least one place would have the lyrics and maybe someone else would come looking, and find it.

    General Commentyeah Scrubs is great and all but these guys have been around for a long time and I've loved them since I heard the first note and I suggest buying (not downloading becuase they need your financial support and it's really hard to find) thier first CD 11 Transistor it's forever times greater than the superman song although it very awesome too =) i'll add in some more Lazlo Bane lyrics for you guys

    General CommentScrubs is a very swank show! I'm in love with Zach Braff! But anyway...This is a really cool song, the lyrics are really good. It was knid of weird to hear it at first, because it's slwoer than on the theme song. But it's still gravy.

    General CommentYa know, it would be pimp if this song was about Jesus. I actually wondered if they were a Christian band? 'That deck of tarot cards won't get you very far' , 'Just take ahold of the hand that breaks the fall', sound like Christian ideals (is that the right word!? l.o.l.). And 'You've crossed the finish line
    Won the race but lost your mind
    Was it worth it, after all ' Remindsa me of a verse in the Bible about how we run a race in life, and how we shoul run for Jesus. Just something to think about.

    General CommentNot to pull hairs, but the title of this great song is just "Superman," not "I'm No Superman." It's track 3 on Lazlo Bane's 2002 album "All the Time in the World."

    General CommentNot to split hairs, but you 'split' hairs, not pull them when being obtuse. Still, you're right though, it is just 'Superman'!!!
