The Lyrics

Ah, the classic heroic window entry...sometimes it gets the wrong reaction.

Well, I look into the room
They're stealin' hundred dollar bills
Lots of bills, they're my bills
And they're not the bank workers, can't sit still
Cause some other people may just cower down
Or call the police in this town, but me now?
I'll show 'em that this ain't a game

Can't just sit here like a dork
It's my job to save the city
My grapple-hook makes noise
But I have to keep it steady
Cause my mentor used to say
"Keep this in mind when you're savin' the day:
Save a door, break a window"
Yes, I live by this:
Save a door, break a window

Well, I'm now in the bank, I start punchin'
And kickin', they're fit-pitchin'
To the cops, I'm quippin' "Cuff 'em no-ow!"
But it seems like they're more annoyed
With the hole I made in the window "Payin' for that hole, mate"
I'm the only real sane one in this to-own

Cause I couldn't use the door
There's too many people flittin'
Inside the bank and out
So it makes sense I'd be pickin'
The less-harmful-to-crowds way
Done this a ton before, I always say:
Save a door, break a window
Yes, I live by this:
Save a door, break a window

I stop bad guys dead, know what I meant
But you're focusin' on this? You must be kiddin'
What the crud? This is ridiculous, though
I've been stoppin' crime all the time
You ping me for collateral, why? Thought you'd be knowin'
That there's laws for me and other heroes
So any compensation for damage to the foundations
Aren't pinned on the dude who's savin' all you clots
From the most villainous of plots
And your av'rage bank robber morons
Please excuse me, now I must be off, I've got a lot more dudes to punch

But I still won't use the door
Cause I know that I'll look silly
When the auto ones slide
Right on me as I get speechy
So I make sure when they break
That no-one's close enough to get sliced, mate
Save a door, break a window
Yes, I live by this:
Save a door, break a window
Yup, yup
Save a door, break a window
Yes, I live by this:
Save a door, break a window

Really, they should be glad it's just the occasional window, and not the whole damn un-evacuated city, cough Man of Steel cough.
