lyrics

Can you laugh?
Can you cry?
Can you act like you don't care if you should die?
Can you speak with your eyes?
Can you curse all of your blessings in disguise?
Can you keep a straight face when you finally realize..
That it's a tough tough job but someone's gotta do it
Get there faster than a speeding bullet
Know it all ahead of time but you really don't know why
Mere mortals need not apply
I can see, I can sense,
I can kill you with this thing they call suspense
I can jump over joy
Want to be your superhero not another misfit toy
When you realize that every man is still a boy
And it's a tough tough job but someone's gotta do it
Get there faster than a speeding bullet
Know it all ahead of time but you really don't know why
Mere mortals need not apply
I keep my friends close but I'll keep you much closer
I keep my friends close but I'll keep you much closer
And it's a tough tough job but someone's gotta do it
You gotta get there faster than a speeding bullet
and it's a tough tough love but someone's got to show it
plant that seed now we've got to grow it
it's another minor miracle you and me can still survive
dead or alive
mere mortals need not apply
