The Lyrics

I absolutely hated this show in the '80s!!!
Look at what's happened to ABC,
They should have put this show right on the shelf
Suddenly, William Katt is Ralph Hinkley
It should've been somebody else

Bullshit or not,
This show got on the air
I never thought it would make it to Season Three
Getting by on a wing and a prayer
Who could the viewers be?
Ratings or not, it wasn’t me!!!

The alien red suit looked really Gay,
And the special powers were nothing new
It was just another “Superman” spin,
No wonder DC Comics sued…

Bullshit or not,
This show got on the air
I never thought it would make it to Season Three
Getting by on a wing and a prayer
Who could the viewers be?
Ratings or not, it wasn’t me!!!

I thought this was going to be another anti-Ke$ha parody.

I didn't get to watch much TV in the 80's. I remember I sort of liked the theme song to this one. I keep seeing ads for TV shows I thought would have been canceled years ago, but are still around. Yet a great show like "Jericho" gets sabotaged.

Yep, a lot of "fly" boys want to take Superman on for a "spin" off, ;-D Excellent work! 555! :-)
