This is a great song, but the structure is a bit complicated, so in the interest 
of space I called the part that's the same (musically) every time the "verse," and 
the part that's different the "chorus."

two dashes = 16th note

Lyrics

	Verse 1

If I could be a superhero,
I would be awesome man.
I’d fly around the world fighting crime,
According to my awesome plan.

	Chorus 1

And if I saw criminals trying to lie,
Hurting other people and making them cry,
I’d haul them off to jail in my awesome van,
'Cause I would be awesome man.

	Pre-Verse 2

Now some criminals want you to be a criminal, and they offer you things like drugs, and alcohol. But we know what to do kids! We just say "no!"

	Verse 2

If I could be a superhero,
I would be drug-free boy.
Telling the world of the evils of drugs,
and all of the lives they destroy.

	Chorus 2

Well I’d take all the junkies - he's getting so high,
With their needles and bongs and their sticks made of tie,
As I burned them alive I would squeal with joy,
'Cause I would be drug-free boy.

	Pre-verse 3

(Whistle) (Really Badly)

	Verse 3

If I could be a superhero,
I’d be immigration dude.
I’d send all the foreigners back to their homes,
For eating up all of our food.

	Chorus 3
	
And taking all our wellfare and best jobs to boot,
Like landscaping, dishwashing, and picking our fruit.
I’d pass a lot of laws to get rid of their brood,
'Cause I’d be immigration dude.

	Pre-Verse 4

Now kids, you could make up your very own superhero. If you could, who would it be?

	Verse 4

If you could be a superhero,
Would you be justice guy?
Make sure people get what they deserve,
Especially women who lie.

	Chorus 4

Like if a wife left her husband with three kids and no job,
to run off to fking Hawaii with a doctor named Bob,
You could skin them and drain them of blood so they'd die...especially Bob,
Then you would be justice guy.

Or, you could be subtle,
No, I didn’t mean to be vague,
Give her the mad cow disease, let him die of the plague,
As long as they suffer for their terrible lie...especially Bob,
Then you would be justice guy.

	Outro

Yes, then you would be, a superhero, like me.
