Superhero
Yeah....

will B ur superhero
But U must understand
If 'm 2 B ur superhero (Yeah yeah)
U must give me half a chance
Listen 2 my band

am born un2 poverty & fear
am scorned yet hold back my tears
There's so much can & will & want 2 do
But cannot until get thru 2 U

will B ur superhero
But U must understand
If 'm 2 B ur superhero (Yeah yeah)
U must give me half a chance

am lucky if learn 2 read & write
Where live, U must 1st learn 2 stand & fight
'm the product of the system, 'm aware
What's my name? Don't matter, nobody cares

But U must understand (Want U 2 understand)
If 'm 2 B ur superhero (Well...)
U must give me half a chance (Yeah)
Listen 2 my band

{scatting}
Ooh yeah well

Understand U need me if U ever go 2 war
But don't understand if buy the goods
Y can't own the store?
Don't tell me that am not worthy
After 400 years overtime

If it's urs then tell me Y can't it B mine?
am just as good as U or any kind
There's so much can & will & want 2 do
But cannot until get thru 2 U

will B ur superhero
But U must understand (Please understand)
If 'm 2 B ur superhero
U must give me half a chance (2 give me half a chance)
Listen 2 my band
{scatting}

Give us what U give ur brothers
Then U'll understand (Yeah)

Until U give us all U can now! (Oh yeah)
Yeah... (Now!)

But U must understand
If 'm 2 B ur superhero ( wanna B ur superhero, yeah)
U must give me half a chance
will B ur superhero
But U must understand (Please understand)
If 'm 2 B ur superhero ( will B ur superhero)
U must give me half a chance (Yeah...)
Listen 2 my band (Ow)

will B ur superhero (Yeah...) {repeat}
