Tarzan wasn't a ladies' man He'd just come along and scoop 'em up under his arm Like that, quick as a cat in the jungle But Clark Kent, there was a real gent He would not be caught sittin' alone in no Junglescape, dumb as an ape doing nothing
Chorus: Superman never made any money For saving the world from Solomon Grundy And sometimes I despair the world will never see Another man like him
Hey Bob, he had a straight job Even though he could have smashed through any bank In the United States, he had the strength, but he wouldn't Folks said his family were all dead His planet crumbled but Superman made himself Carry on, forget Krypton, and keep going
Tarzan was king of the jungle and Lord over all the apes But he could hardly put four words together: "I Tarzan, You Jane."
Sometimes when he was stopping crimes I bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back On man, join Tarzan in the jungle But he stayed in the city, and kept on changing clothes In dirty old phonebooths till his job was through Nothing to do but go home
