(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman

In the style of

The Kinks

Lyrics

woke up
this morning
started to sneeze
had a cigarette
and a cup of tea

i looked
in the mirror
what did i see
a nine-stone
weakling with
knobbly knees

i did my knees bend
press-ups
touched my toes
had another sneeze
and i blew my nose

i looked
in the mirror
at my pigeon chest
i had to put on
my clothes
because it
made me depressed

surely there must
be a way
for me to change
the shape i'm in
dissatisfied
with what i am
i wanna be a
better man

superman
superman
wish i could fly
like superman

superman
superman
i wanna be
like superman
ha

i wanna be
like superman
wish i could fly
like superman

woke up
this morning
what did i see
a big black cloud
hanging over me

i switched on
the radio
and nearly
dropped dead
the news was
so bad
that i fell out of bed

there was
a gas strike
oil strike
lorry strike
a bread strike
gotta be
a superman
to survive

gas bills
rent bills
tax bills
phone bills
i'm such a wreck
but i'm stayin' alive

hey girl
we've gotta
get outta this place

there's gotta be
somethin' better
than this

i need you
but i hate to
see you this way
if i were superman
then i'd fly you away

i'd really like
to change the world
and save it from
the mess it's in

i'm too weak
i'm so thin
i'd like to fly
but i can't even swim
oh

i wanna fly
like superman
superman
superman
wish i could fly
like superman

oh
wish i could fly
like superman
oh

i wanna be
like superman

superman
superman
i wanna fly
like superman
