The Lyrics

Where have all the burgers gone?
And where are all the fries?
I haven't been this hungry since
The last Fourth of July

Wasn't there a hotdog upon a hotdog bun?
I know that they are just messin' cause they had to leave me some

I need a hero
I'm looking out for a hero with a nice tomato
It's covered with meat
And it's covered with cheese
And it's gotta be somewhere I know
I need a hero
I'm thinking I'd like a hero that's followed by pie
It's gotta be king
And it's gotta be kong
And it's gotta be cut with a knife
Cut with a knife

I reached for some egg salad
And macaroni and cheese
Both of them were empty though
Just where can all of this food be?

Lettuce and tomato are beckoning to me
But they're just pictures on a can not something I can eat

I need a hero
I'm really do need a hero I will pay any price
I've gotta have ham
And I've gotta have cheese
And I've gotta have soda with ice
I need a hero
I'm looking here for a hero that just can't be beat
It's gotta be fresh
And it's gotta be clean
And it's gotta be measured in feet
I need a hero
I'm looking out for a hero I can eat for my lunch

I could eat thousands if I could just find them
It feels like fighting inside me
I would swear that there's something in there
Eating me

Need to find the lettuce and the bread
And the cheese and cold cuts
I can feel my stomach
Just a pain in my gut

Just a pain in my gut
Just a pain in my gut
Just a pain in my gut
Just a pain in my gut

I need a hero
I'm hoping now for a hero I can eat for my lunch
It's gotta be long
And it's gotta be high
And it's gotta be ready to munch
I need a hero
I'm searching hard for a hero that's on white or wheat
It's gotta be good
And it's gotta be huge
And it's gotta be chock full of meat

I need a hero
If you can find me a hero I can eat it right now
I've waited too long
And I'm hungry enough
I could probably eat a whole cow
I need a hero
I'm hunting now for a hero that's properly dressed
With real mayonnaise
And with lots of lettuce
And it's gotta be one I like best
I need a hero
I'm waiting now for a hero, hurry up or I faint
