The Lyrics

It's an angle that's been explored a few times before, but here's my take: what does Lex Luthor really think about Superman? Enjoy!
There's little need to introduce myself
I'm a business man of fame
Though I've worked hard in this town fo-or years
Then this "hero" shows up from space
I swear they think he's Jesu-us Christ
Just because the whole world he's saved
Lots of times, can't count them
Not the point I want to make

So-called "Big Blue"
Superman's his na-ame
A hero to you
But I just don't trust his ga-ame

Don't believe the lies you've heard
Yes, the Daily Planet's biased, I say
The Boy Scout's plans are sinister
Not some wrestling baby-face
Soon he will shank our town in the flank
And then who will save us? That Batman crank?

I don't like Supes
Think that point's been made, oh yeah
I don't trust him, true
With his spit-curl and red cape, oh yeah

I can't believe that you all can't see
This "hero" from space, he threatens our race
I mean, come on half of you work for me
But somehow you all trust this muscled freak
Mr. Luthor, just call me Lex
Metropolis, I will sa-ave
From this "super" Kryptonian
He'll regret ever coming our way

My words are true
Man of Steel's to blame, oh yeah
To be frank, we're screwed
If we let Superman reign, oh yeah, cause he's a menace

He'll turn on you
I know that's his game, oh yeah
No, I've no concrete proof
But Superman's surely to bla-ame, mmm-mmm-eh

He may put away lots of criminals
Doesn't make him a saint
You saw how that Zod man used his powers
He was from Krypton just the same
Someone believe me, we'll face tyranny
From this Superman soon, someday
His charity's a facade, yes
But mine isn't, I'm okay, mmm yeah

Just cause he blew
That Darkseid away, mm yeah
Therefore saving you
Like he does near ev'ry day, mmm taking crooks down
Oh yeah, take him down
Oh yeah

Oh yeah
He gets on my nerves each day
I can't figure out his long-term game
Cause he'll turn on us someday
Without some mind-control to blame
Not right, mmm
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
One of these days
I'm gonna take him right down in flames
I'm not crazy, he is to blame
Oh-oh-oh, yeah

Now that I think about it, this is basically Lex Luthor if he was J. Jonah Jameson. I want pictures! Pictures of Superman!
