The Lyrics

Narrator: Lois Lane. Which might lead some of you to think I should credit the most familiar feminine version of the song, by Donna Summer. But, in the words of the immortal Harry Chapin, "You don't want to mess with disco B.S., no matter what." Even Superman can't save us from that.
(instrumental opening)

"Spring, afraid it must wait for us, girl,"
he said as he flew off,
"To save us, here's my chance."

A guy brain-washed by Luthor, he's oppressed.
He's beaten by my guy
who wears blue tights, not pants.

My partner, Clark, he always makes his mark.
All those super-villians going down!
Someone thinks that bullets give him pain!
I don't think they're going to make it
'cause attacks like that, he'll shake it
and they'll never live outside a jail again!
Oh no!

I recall the radioactive mess
pounding us in waves
to bring us to our knees.

He crunched that satellite with his bare hands
defeating those mean wreckers
and their tragedies.

My partner, Clark, he always makes his mark.
All those super-villians going down!
Someone thinks that bullets give him pain!
I don't think they're going to make it
'cause attacks like that, he'll shake it
and they'll never live outside a jail again!
Oh no!

(instrumental break)

There will be another film for me.
It's about... Batman.
He is not the super-guy for me.
Oh, no, not that man.
Playboy drinking wine while it is warm
and then fights crime, but never in the sun.
And after all the times he's saved my life
oh, after all the times he's saved my life
Clark Kent's still the one.

He would take my life into his hands
and he would... save it.
Taken to Fortress of Solitude.
He will not 'cave it.
I give him the things he would desire
and our passion, it goes flying 'cross the sky!
And after all the times he's saved my life
oh, after all the times he's saved my life
I'll be thinking of him...

But now he must fly!

(Over Jimmy Webb's long, long instrumental break you hear
the opening from the 1952-57 TV series starring George Reeves...)

The Adventures of Superman!
Faster than a speeding bullet!
More powerful than a locomotive!
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!
"Look! Up in the sky!"
"It's a bird!"
"It's a plane!"
"It's Superman!"

Yes, it's Superman!
Strange visitor from another planet
who came to Earth with powers and abilities
far beyond those of mortal men!
Superman!
Who can change the course of mighty rivers!
Bend steel in his bare hands!
And, who, disguised as Clark Kent,
mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper,
fights a never-ending battle for
Truth! Justice! And the American Way!

(Lois)
My partner, Clark, he always makes his mark.
All those super-villians going down!
Someone thinks that bullets give him pain!
I don't think they're going to make it
'cause attacks like that, he'll shake it
and they'll never live outside a jail again!
Oh no!

Oh no!

(The Toyman)
No!
(The Prankster)
No!
(Braniac)
No!
(The Parasite)
No!
(Lex Luthor)
Noooooooooooooooo!

Wow... That was... superb! (You thought I was gonna say "super," didn't you?) ;) I loved the clever lyrics and the substitutions, and the song choice, too. Super job! 555

But he never parted the Red sea.

You obviously never saw Action Comics #294, the June 1975 issue.

WHOA! Awesomer than the awesomest awesome thing that ever were awesome, 5-5-5

Wow. I really struck a chord. Even Arwen doesn't give me approval like that. It's refreshing. And I was kidding about Superman parting the Red Sea. He's never done it -- as far as I know. Even if, unlike Cher, he did find (in the person of Chris Reeve, anyway) a way to turn back time.

All I can say is that the Charnster obviously hasn't read any of Michael's parodies about ME...=)...because they are SO much more awesome than this...; )
Michael Pacholek - July 12, 2006 - Report this comment
Well, I don't know if they're THAT much more awsome... I thought this one was pretty good.
Arwen - July 13, 2006 - Report this comment
Oh it's fabulous, Michael...but don't get me wrong...but come on. You know I'm a little bit biased...=)

fantastic, MP! I'm glad I caught this from Recent Comments - I loved that show when I was a kid (it sowed the seeds of a lifetime love of film noir for me) - and reading those intro words again gave me goosebumps - great wording and adaptaion to McArthur's Park too, and great title! - 555
