He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero.
'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones
And the people 'cross town don't know his name
But on Franklin Pike Circle he's king
1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

Well, at five thirty-five at the corner of Franklin and Walnut
A blue station wagon comes slidin' around the corner
And on down Franklin Pike Circle all you're seein' is a streak of blue
And pulls in the drive at the address of 1432

And he says "My head aches and my back hurts and I don't feel like talkin'"
"Don't wan' go the show to see Doctor Zhivago"
"Don't wanna take the dog out walkin'"
"I wanna sit right here in this easy chair, it's been a jungle all day, you know"
The 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero is home

He was out pitching ball with the kids in the neighborhood yesterday
And the ole major-leaguer had to quit 'cause he said he threw his arm away
And the kids all hid behind the hedge and laughed at him but wouldn't let it show
Because they love him so,
He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero
'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones
An', ya know, people 'cross town don't know his name
But on Franklin Pike Circle he's king
1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

Well , he won a little pony at the Hill High auction just the other day
And he di'n't mean to do it and he wanted to give the pony away
a-When they called out his name he tried not to claim it
But the kids started cryin' 'cause they'd already named it
And who's up ev'ry Saturday morning?
Saddling his new toy? You guessed it-
The 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Cowboy

He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero
'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones
Durin' Christmas took the kids down to see the floats
When he wanted t'stay home and watch the Baltimore Colts
1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

Well the ten-thirty news usually finds our hero is a sleepy head
And Peter's out somewhere wreckin' the car
And the rest 'the kids have gone to bed
So she takes his hand, they climb the stairs and he falls asleep
And she bends over him so tenderly to kiss his cheek
'cause she loves him so, and she's lucky, you know?
To be married to the 1432,
1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero
'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones

FADE
Christmas time he took 'em down to see the floats
When he wanted t'stay home and watch the Baltimore Colts
1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero
