The Lyrics

He's got vision that is X-ray
and heated like a pepper sprout.
Of course, I'm talking 'bout... Brandon.
Introducing Mr. Routh.

He's super, Brandon.
His film's come around.
He's super, Brandon.
He's gonna save your town.

Well, the first Superman was Bud Collyer
in Forties radio.
Today, he's remembered much better
for hosting early TV game shows.

Now, we've got Brandon
with the S-curled hair.
Yeah, we've got Brandon.
Up in the air.

The next Superman was Kirk Alyn
fighting in a war so cold.
Fighting spies atomic but
he's Superman, he's much more bold.

Now, we've got Brandon.
in Clark's blue coat.
Yeah, we've got Brandon.
Good reviews, critics wrote.

George Reeves could leap tall buildings
in the Fifties with a single bound.
Special effects were cheesy
and so was the track of sound.

Now, we've got Brandon
in this Super-flick.
Yeah, we've got Brandon.
Director Bryan Singer's pick.

Well, Christopher Reeve was the next one.
I did believe a man could fly.
Beat Hackman playing Luthor
and even some Kryptonian guys.

Now, we've got Brandon.
Let's see what he's got.
Yeah, we've got Brandon.
He's gonna make a pot.

Well, Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher
played it for laughs on TV.
Every now and then he'd catch her
so real and spectacularly.

Now, we've got Brandon.
Lots to live up to.
Yeah, we've got Brandon.
Mr. Routh, good luck to you!

Well, "Smallville" gives us Tom Welling.
Troubles of a super-teen.
Wait until he takes on bigger, badder
guys who are even more mean.

Now, we've got Brandon.
Powered by yellow sun.
His enemy's Spacey.
He's not the only one.

Well, he's got vision that's X-ray
and heated like a pepper sprout.
Bullets, yeah, they bounce... off him.
His weakness? Sure, it's Lois Lane's pout!

Now, we've got Brandon.
His film's come around.
Tough task for Brandon:
Saving Hollywood town!

Mmmm...
He's got vision that's X-ray...
and heated like a pepper sprout...
Yes, plenty of us guys with super-powers have pouty women as a weakness.

I loved this almost as much as I loved the movie! Excellent, Mr. Pacholek...and what a fine post script, too...; )

I just submitted one on this OS, so thought I'd look at yours. At first I had to scratch my brain for Brandon Routh, but then the penny dropped. Yeah, he did a great job. I read somewhere he was chosen because he looked like Christopher Reeve, who had just died the previous year, and the movie was a tribute to him.

I can still recite the old 'Faster than a speeding bullet' routine without pausing for breath. I have to say George Reeves's Clark was one of the least mild-mannered reporters I've encountered, but he's a pussy compared to some of those TV anchors nowadays.

I recall in that movie Supe got a kryptonite dagger through the heart, fell thousands of miles to earth without powers beyond mortal men, and then got up and socked it to Spacey. Kinda rough on the suspended disbelief faculties.

Oh, your parody? Super 555s of course, and a 14-day all-expenses-paid guided tour of Kandor.
