Dum de dum

Tarzan wasn't a lady's man
He'd just come along and sweep them up under his arm like that,
quick as he could, in the jungle

But Clark Kent, now there was a real gent
He would not be caught sitting around in no junglescape
dumb as an ape, doing nothing

Superman never made any money saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him
Hey Bob Supe had a straight job
Even thought he could smash into any bank in the United States
He had the strength but he would not

Folks said his family were all dead
Planet crumbled but Superman he forced himself to carry on,
forget Krypton and keep going

Superman never made any money
saving the world from Solmon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him

Tarzan was King of the Jungle and Lord over all the apes
But he could hardly string together four words:
"I Tarzan you Jane"

Sometimes when Supe was stopping crimes
I'll bet he was tempted to just quit
And turn his back on man,
join Tarzan in the forest

But he stayed in the city
Kept on changing clothes in dirty old phone booths
till his work was through,
he had nothing to do but go home

Superman never made any money
saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him
