Somebody's Hero Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

She's never pulled anyone from a burning building
She's never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans
Screaming out her name
She's never hit a shot to win the game

She's never left her footprints on the moon
She's never made a solo hot air balloon ride, around the world
No, she's just your everyday average girl
(But)

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the cheerios

The voice that brings Snow White to life
Bedtime stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero

She didn't get a check every week like a nine-to fiver
But she's been a waiter and a cook and a taxi driver
For twenty years, there at home until the day her girl was grown
Giving all her love to her was her life's ambition

But now her baby's movin' on and she'll soon be missin' her
But not today, those are tears of joy runnin' down her face

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her daughter in her wedding dress
She gave her wings to leave the nest
It hurts to let her baby go down the aisle she walks right by

Looks back into her mother's eyes
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero

Thirty years have flown right past
Her daughters' starin' at all the photographs
Of her mother and she wishes she could be like that
Oh, but she already is
She's somebody's hero

A hero to her mother in a rockin' chair
She runs a brush through her silver hair
The envy of the nursing home
She drops by every afternoon

Feeds her mama with a spoon
And that smile lets her know
Her mother's smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero
