The Lyrics

They say they want a "hero", but don't *ever* try and use a song like this as advice, just don't. So here it is from the would-be hero's point of view.
Where have all the good girls gone
And where are the goddesses?
All those book-smart Hermoines
With mouse-brown bangs and tresses?

Isn't there a sweet girl with an active mind?
I wonder sometimes if they've gone and all died out, her kind

I'll be a hero
Though I know that it's a bit passé
I'm not very strong
And I'm not very fast
But you know, at the end of the day -

I'll be a hero
I'll be whatever I can be, if she wants me to
(If she's good and she's pure)
Although I'm unsure
If there's a single useful thing I can do

Somewhere after lunchtime
In my boredest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my mind
There's someone reaching back for me

I know she wants a Superman to make her life anew
If I'm only Clark Kent, then I guess I'll have to do

I'll be a hero
Though I know that it's a bit passé
I'm not very strong
And I'm not very fast
But you know, at the end of the day -

I'll be a hero
I'll be whatever I can be, if she wants me to
(If she's good and she's pure)
Although I'm unsure
If there's a single useful thing I can do

I'll be a hero
Though I know that it's a bit passé

Up where the staircase meets the hallway above
Out near the door to Chem Lab Three
She asks straight out, "Hey, you,
Have you been watching me?"

Taking care always not to be seen
Staying light on my feet
She won't know I am there
Till at last we can meet

And at last we will meet
And at last we will meet
And at last we will meet
And at last we will meet

I'll be a hero
Though I know that it's a bit passé
I'm not very strong
And I'm not very fast
But you know, at the end of the day -

I'll be a hero
I'll be whatever I can be, if she wants me to
(If she's good and she's pure)
Although I'm unsure
If there's a single useful thing I can do

I'll be a hero
Though I know that it's a bit passé
I'm not very strong
And I'm not very fast
But you know, at the end of the day -

I'll be a hero
I'll be whatever I can be, if she wants me to
(If she's good and she's pure)
Although I'm unsure
If there's a single useful thing I can do

I'll be a hero
Though I know that it's a bit passé
