The Lyrics

Writes for Daily Planet
Changes in a phone booth
Gotham's caped crusader
Whose mild manner cloaks the truth
Yeah Clark is from planet Krypton
A doomed world that's seen better days
JOR-EL had to save his son from death
From exploding in space

A life of crime fighting
Evil villains plunder
Flyin' with the wind
A yellow sun he's under
Yeah Clark will combat Lex Luther
Save the world from his evil ways
Thwart all of the goons on Earth
That invade from deep space

While a strong, Smallville child
He was raised, raised to be mild
He can leap so high
Is he ever gonna die?

Born to be KAL-EL
Born to be KAL-EL

Facts to Note:
Jor-El is Superman's father.
Kal-El is Superman's birthname.
Superman's powers are enhanced by earth's yellow sun unlike Planet Krypton's red sun so I take it.
