Recorded by Mark Rubel at Pogo Studio, 1996. Originally appeared in a Fox Kids public service announcement.


Trapped between the pages of a magazine
Stuck behind the glass of a TV screen
Those superheroes aren't going to save the day
If all of us turn and look the other way

You have the power, you have the strength
Believe in yourself, you know you are what you think
It's time to save the world, it's time to get real
You don't have to be a man or woman of steel

To be a superhero

There are people everywhere who need our help
Don't leave that job for others, do it yourself
We can make the world a better place
If we all get together now before it's too late

A teacher or a volunteer or activist
A doctor or a nurse or a scientist
A mother, father, sister, brother or best friend
Will make the biggest difference in the end

They're all superheroes
