The Man's a Hero

from Politics by Will Good and The Mattes



I’m gonna teach myself
I will be your hero
I will learn from the best
Watch movies and TV shows
You gotta be tough
Gotta show ‘em who’s boss
But most of all it seems to me
You gotta get cross

Fancy gun looks cool
And super power’s a help
Touch of magic comes in handy
And of course colossal wealth
But none of these will work
And no-one gives a toss
If you don’t stare intensely
And act as if you’re cross

So here I am I’ve armed myself
With all these hero’s skills
You don’t need to look no further
I’m the one who kills for you
I am your knight in shining armour
On a winged horse
And all will bow before me
When they see I’m very cross

I’ll charge around the neighbourhood
I’ll put on such a show
And everyone will look and see
That I am your hero
They’ll be impressed but if they’re not
They’ll find it to their cost
There’s no getting away from me
Cos now I’m very cross
