Song Description

As rumors of Superman's return begin to surface, a poor little boy in a dirty neighborhood corner draws an S on his shirt - and dreams of his own glory someday. He thinks about life and love, and is inspired to prevail.

Story Behind the Song

I was moved by the story of a friend who lost his leg in a freak accident, and how he fought to endure. Then I also was moved by Christopher Reeve's story and death. Then images of Superman's return to the world (the new Superman-returns- movie was about

Lyrics

SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN
(Nkeng Alemanji)

(Intro)
I saw this little boy on a dirty street corner
Sadness in his eyes ? oh life
He?d drawn out in some dirt ? an ?S? on his shirt
He said I?m gonna be strong like Superman

(Verse 1)
Look to the sky ? yeah ? See who?s arriving
Up by a satellite ? it?s superman
Desire in his eyes glows as he returns
Returns for the love he left in dissonance

(Chorus)
Superman, Superman
You motivate me yeah honestly
Superman, Superman
On and on till you see her face
(Repeat chorus)

(The last time you saw her ? Oh yeah ? yeah yeah) (X2)

(Verse 2)
The last time you saw her was years ago winter
She wanted to come along ? you couldn?t decide
You left for the station ? she cried tears of frustration
You left behind the love of your life

(Chorus)

Oh yeah ? yeah, Oh yeah
Superman you motivate me, Superman go on go on (X2)

(Bridge)
And you will save her, save her, save her
You will save her, save her, save her

(Repeat bridge)

Look to the sky ? yeah (X2)
Look to the sky ? yeah ? See who?s arriving
Up by a satellite ? it?s superman
Desire in his eyes (love) glows as he returns
Returns for the love he left in dissonance

(Chorus)

Ta na na ? ta na na ? ta na na ta na na na na
