about

Recorded Live at The 16th Avenue Cafe in Nashville, TN on September 26, 1997.

I wrote this tune while I still lived in California. I performed it at Western Beat in California, and at songwriter nights when I first came to Nashville. Then, later, my friend Debbie Allen and I rewrote it.

This album consists of live recordings of Jeffrey Scott Stewart and the Big Dogs, recorded in 1997-1998 in Nashville.

lyrics

(I WANNA BE) SUPERMAN

I wanna be Superman . . . super tough
Xray vision and all that stuff . . . I wanna be Superman
I wanna be Superman . . . man of steel
Hey, what a kick, if I could be a real Superman

I want Lois Lane to call my name if she gets in a jam
I want outlaws all around the land to fear me for
who I am

I wanna be Superman
I wanna be Superman

I wanna be Superman . . . in a single bound
Nail the crooks and save the town . . . I wanna be
Superman
I wanna be Superman . . . then I could fly
I could change the world if I was Superman

I want Lois Lane to call my name if she gets in a jam
I want outlaws all around the land to fear me for
who I am

I wanna be Superman
I wanna be Superman

I seem like an ordinary guy for all you know
But underneath it all I have big plans I don't show
Someday soon I'll share the dreams that I've
been dreaming
'Cause I can't go on quietly, while inside I keep
screaming

I wanna be Superman
I wanna be Superman

I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be
Superman

I wanna be Superman . . . big and strong
Make things right when things go wrong . . . I wanna
be Superman
I wanna be Superman with all my might
But love sure feels like Kryptonite . . . I wanna be
Superman

I want Lois Lane to call my name if she gets in a
jam
I want outlaws all around the land to fear me for
who I am

I wanna be Superman
I wanna be Superman
I wanna be Superman
