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, touch 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, is what I am
Want to be a better man

Superman, superman, wish I could fly like superman
Superman, superman, want to be like superman
I want to be like superman
Superman, 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, bread strike
Got to be a superman to survive
Gas bills, rent bills, tax bills, phone bills
I? m such a wreck but I? m staying alive

Hey girl, we? ve got to get out of this place
There? s got to be something better than this
I need you but I hate to see you this way
And if I were superman then we? d fly 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

Superman, superman, I want to fly like superman
Superman, superman, wish I could fly like superman
Superman, superman, wish I could fly like superman
Superman, superman, I want to be like superman
Superman, superman, I want to fly like superman
