I wish I could play the blues better.

1-4-5 swing-blues -ish
I've never been bitten by a radioactive spider
If I did I'd probably get very sick and die
I'm pretty sure my mother never found me in a crater
Because I can't see through walls and I don't know how to fly
I'm a little claustrophobic and I'm not fond of the dark
I've not been struck by lightning or spied a magical light
I never went exploring to find ancient ring or ark
I have nothing to avenge, my folks are still alive.
I used to dream of racing into danger to save the day
Stopping disasters and meeting a nice girl along the way
I don't have super strength, I can't read minds or fly
But still I dream of tights and capes and taking to the sky
I never got an invitation delivered by an owl
I never took a ride with a doctor in a phone booth
I'm too chicken to hitchhike and I've mislaid my towel
My only secret weapons are three chords and the truth.
I don't have superpowers but that's alright by me
