The Lyrics

Batman's mom was killed when he was still small
and Spiderman was bit by something that crawled
Wolverine has no emotion at all
A Vigilant Hero is so tough to be
A Vigilant Hero is on my T.V.

Some wear little masks and use fancy tools
They don't play things nicely or follow cops' rules
They never seem lazy and most make girls drool
A Vigilant Hero's what I want to be
They get all the girls, the guys and idol'try

Sure they're tortured and feared in the bad guys huge lairs
but they always get out and their lives are all spared
Some even have sidekicks who stay with them for years
A Masked-Super Hero's the job that's for me
I could be Storm, Cyclops or shoot at zombies

They have such long lists of friends and enemies
Just look at Superman, his tights are so itchy
Can't tell how they hide cause they sure don't fool me
Perhaps this hero things not what I should be
Don't want to be hunted by Poison Ivy

They're strong and they fly and they try not to kill
Some have a dark side, but we all like them still
They live in big cities where bad guys are ill
A Vigilant Hero must get so angry
Living in secret can't be so happy
They won't get a job doing delivery
A Caped-masked-bulk hero must be hell to be
A Vigilant Hero is cool but scary
A Vigilant Hero is not what to be

If you want to be a hero, You should go get seen
By a doctor, physician, just go get help please

Add another one to your list Green Dave. I think I'm going to start calling you that from now on. This was great with a bunch of my favorite superheroes except for Superman, I always hated that guy.

I don't know what superheroes get the guys.... Can't recall any gay superheroes unless I'm mistaken because I'm sure there are some. I mean Batman and Robin had some undertones but I thought they were just good buddies.

Nothing below average about this parody Below Average Dave. In fact it's way above average! 5,5,5! Wish I had the same luck you have with my songs, I've voted & commented for a lot of you people, but the favor is not returned. Pretty soon I will have no choice but to stop commenting and voting until I start receiving some V's and/or C's for my songs... :-(

Thank you Matty, UKV, and Wild Child JIN

Wild Child: I don't believe I'd seen a comment before and hadn't seen your name, your song choices are very interesting, love that you took on Walking Contradiction--a Green Day song that never got the attention it deserved by radio outlets--I left a comment there, thank you for your comment, and I'm very sorry to hear about your struggles with getting commentary, because you are pretty creative from what I read in the one parody I had a chance to read. . .you have one new fan today!

Very nice work on this Lennon cover (GD did it better). Too bad SuperDave is already taken as a superhero name. ;-)

Thank you Ant, And I fully agree on Green Day's version over Lennon's

ABC (UV)- Not a huge fan of superheroes...(maybe it's just me), but I love Green Day's cover of this song and your parody fit it well!

Interesting how this parody works with the recent release of "Kick Ass", much in the same frame of mind.

What can I say 'cept very heroic. Well done BAD. You had some really great word play to the OS. I like this. Not too funny but great work just the same.

(ABC5) A little iffy on the pacing, but maybe that's just my version of the song (it's an "amended album version" whatever that means). Still, great parody, great message, just...all around greatness. To the 555-Cave!
