The Lyrics


Jor-El, father of Kal-El (Superman), gets his own song as he tries to warn Krypton's elders of their planet's impending demise.

Our world's beginning to erode
My latest findings clearly showed
The core is starting to implode
It falls upon me to forebode

Krypton's days are counting down
What will we do when it explodes?

Our people share a heavy load
Our evolution has plateaued
The signs are easy to decode
A nasty fate we've been bestowed

Krypton's lost the final round
What will we do when it explodes?

Why must I beg, cajole, and goad
And be confined to my abode
While my advice you overrode
While our demise you've clearly sewed

Krypton's seed is heaven bound
That's what I'll do when it explodes

Another one of The Beatles pointless songs done masterly. This was pretty great and makes me want to watch the original Superman movie again. I have my own tribute to Superman coming tomorrow! I can't believe he hasn't been spoofed for this project yet!

Had to give you 555's even though it puts your song ahead of Batgirl

I'd rather be right next to Batgirl!

Yeah, excellently done considering the OS. Thanks for including the beginning of Superman Porf.
