Volunteers. It’s one of the things that makes life special. There are many…..and even though they may never make any money saving the world, they possess heroic qualities for mere mortals….or are they?.

Here’s a eulogy to volunteerism. Use your powers to fight the evil sociopaths. Don’t let the dream die.
Remember these guys??

Superman’s Song – Crash Test Dummies 1991


Again, I was fooling around on my guitar and hit an F/C combinations and said to me I said: Sounds like that Superman song…..

Supermans Song (from chordie.com)

F C F C
Tar zan wasn’t a ladies man
F C F C Am G
He’d just come along and swoop ’em up un der his arm like that
Am G Dm G
Quick as a cat in the jungle
F C F C
But Clark Kent, now there was a real gent
F C F C Am G
He would not be caught sittin’ aro und in no jungle scape
Am G Dm G
Dumb as an ape doing nothing
Chorus
F G C F
Superman never made any money saving the world from Solomon Grundy
C F C F G
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him
F C F C
Hey Bob, Supe had a straight job
F F F C Am G
Even though he could have smashed through any bank in the United States
Am G Dm G
He had the strength but he would not
F C F C
Folks said his family were all dead
F C F C Am G
Their planet crumbled but Superman he forced himself to carry on
Am G Dm G
Forget Kry pton and keep going
Chorus
Am G Am G F C G
Tar zan was king of the jungle and lord over all the apes
Am G Am G F C F
But he could hardly string together four wo rds: “ I
C G
Tar zan, you Jane”
F C F C
Some times when Supe was stopping crimes
F C F C Am G
I’ll bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back on man
Am G Dm G
Join Tar zan in the forest
F C F C F C F
But he stayed in the city and kept changing clothes in dirty
C
old phonebooths
Am G Am G Dm G
Til his work was through and nothing to do but go on home
Chorus
