The Lyrics

Another superhero themed song. Check out my "Batman" parody of "Meant to Live" by Switchfoot. This one I did while I was riding home from the dentist for the check up to make sure no problems happened from having my wisdom teeth removed. So, enjoy.
I'm a rich man, lots of money
A big house, and lots of cars too
I'm a rich man, richer than Elvis
But I'm bored now, think I'll go on a cruise

It's a bad day, got pushed overboard
I woke up, stranded on an isle
I'm hungry, got no way to get food
I'll make a bow, use that for a while

Now I'm Green, Green Arrow
Yeah I'm Green, Green Arrow

I fought crime, used lots of trick arrows
Lost my money, Speedy and Dinah too
Everybody, wond'ring what happened to Ollie
I went to, a monastery to start anew

And I'm Green, Green Arrow
Yeah I'm Green, Green Arrow
Green Arrow, punch-ing, glove arrow, now I'm
Green Arrow, punch-ing, glove arrow, now I'm

I wanna spend time with my son Connor
I wanna fly with Hal through the sky
Gotta die to save Superman's city
Gotta leave this world for a while

And I'm Green, Green Arrow
Yea I'm Green, Green Arrow
Next parody? Who knows. It probably won't be a comic book themed one, I don't want to be known as "the comic parody guy."

Quick thing a friend pointed out. What we called punching gloves where I grew up, it seems most people (or at least people in America) call boxing gloves. I guess it's just a regional thing like pop/soda/coke. (Who calls it coke, anyway? Especially when it's not Coca Cola)

Great song. Can't believe no one else has commented on it yet besides you. You do Green Arrow proud. PS, they call it punching gloves where I live too (South Africa)

not bad, pretty funny. The pacing is off a bit in a lot of places though.
