When I was 39 years old, I heard a story
I found out that they're people walking among us who have superpowers
These people are called Supertasters
To a Supertaster, bitter fruits taste far more bitter
And sweets far more sweet
Then, just a few months ago, I had the chance to meet a real live Supertaster named John Lee
And this is his true story

Nothing tastes the same
(Nothing tastes the same)
To a Supertaster
(Supertaster)
When he tastes a pear
(Tastes a pear)
It's like a hundred pears
(It's like a million pears)

He's got superpowers
(Superpowers)
He is a Supertaster
(Supertaster)
Every flavor explodes
(Explodes and explodes)
Explodes and explodes

John Lee Supertaster
Tastes more than we do
Everything has a flavor
Some flavors are too much

Can't shut his mouth
(Can't shut his mouth)
'Cause he's a Supertaster
(Supertaster)
Though he looks like a man
(Talks like a man)
He is a Supertaster
(Supertaster)

Can't drink coffee or beer
(Coffee or beer)
'Cause he's a Supertaster
(Supertaster)
Loves ice-cream and pie
(Ice-cream and pie)
He is a Supertaster

John Lee Supertaster
Tastes more than we know
Everything has a flavor
Some flavors must go
