about

I originally wrote and performed this for my kids' fifth birthday party, which had a super-hero theme.

Chords are available from songbook.ukulelejim.net

lyrics

If I was a super-hero
I might have the power of flight
I'd run faster than a bullet
Round up evil everywhere
And deal justice with my might

You might never see
Someone as great as me
I'll make history
You might choose to be
The one who flies with me
High above the city
We could be a team
The best that's ever been
We will always win
We'll fight our enemies
If you'll agree to be
My sidekick

If I was a super-villain
Taking lots and lots of cash
I would have a secret hideout
Where I'd build my secret weapons
And my wicked plans would hatch

You might never see
Someone as bad as me
I'll make history
You might choose to be
The one who hides with me
Deep beneath the city
We could be a team
The worst that's ever been
We will sneer and grin
We'll fight our enemies
If you'll agree to be
My henchman

If I had some super powers
I would do what's right and fair
I would always use them justly
(Although a big flat-screen TV
would look so nice inside my lair...)

You might never see
Someone as great as me
I'll make history
You might choose to be
The one who flies with me
High above the city
We could be a team
The best that's ever been
We will always win
We'll fight our enemies
Together we can be
Heroes
