Super Strong words and music by Lloyd Miller (c) (p) 2016
LYRICS I don’t know if you know what it’s like to be super strong and I’m not talking bout dumbbells, let ‘em collect dust a little longer Let me tell you a story about a ballerina I know You know how much it hurt when she first tried to stand on her toes? Yeah, I know you guys know about pas de chat, relevé, and plié But you know real ballerinas don’t have much time to play They’re super strong and that’s the name of this song
I don’t know if you know what it’s like to be super strong and i’m not talking bout knocking people down, I’m not talking bout dropping bombs Let me tell you a story bout a schoolteacher I know She stood in front of the class for the first time all alone Yeah, I know now it seems like she knows everything but you know real schoolteachers don’t have much time to sleep They’re in their classrooms long after the students have gone and they’re super strong
I don’t know if you know what it’s like to be super strong and i’m not talking about those cool kids you know the ones who seem like they got no problems I wanna tell you a story bout a little girl I know She’s got a new liver and a kidney and her heart is not that strong She spent the whole summer in a hospital far from home You know i think about her when I don’t want to go on I’m not super strong Are you super strong?
A song about strength and the many forms it can take. Lloyd wrote the original draft of this song after talking about what it meant to be “strong” with a group of kids in a songwriting workshop.
