The Lyrics

Would it really be all that cool to be "Batman"? I mean, really...those clothes, the poles, "Boy Wonder" hanging around all the time...anyway - I saw no one had done Jethro Tull's "Fat Man" on this site so...
(Instrumental Intro)

Don't want to be that Batman
People would wonder what I do with Robin
"What do they do at home, hmmm?
Is his trip anything like Michael Jackson?"
These tights are bad enough without a glove
These jerks think Robin and I are in love
Those damn tabloids have a field day; think I've had enough

(Instrumental break)

And then there is that mask, damn!
Wearing that every day makes me feel dumb
Grown weary of that task, and
all those lame sound effects like "WHAM" and "BAM"
It's all so silly; I feel like a stooge
Humiliation grows, it's become huge
And the women think I'm gay 'cause with a boy I cruise

(Instrumentals out to end)
