Superman's Song -- Crash Test Dummies

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

But Clark Kent, now there was a real gent
He would not be caught sittin' around
In no jungle scape
Dumb as an ape
Doin' nothin

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man
Like him

Hey Bob, Supe had a straight jo
Even thought 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
His 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
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man
Like him

Tarzan, was King of the Jungle and Lord over all the Apes
But he could hardly string together four words
"ITarzanYouJane"

Sometimes, when Supe was stopping crimes
I'll bet that he was tempted to just quit
And turn his back on man
And join Tarzan
In the forest

But he, stayed in the city
And kept on changing clothes in dirty old phone booths
Till his work was through
And nothing to do
But go on home

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man
Like him
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man
Like him

--From the album, "The Ghosts that Haunt Me"
