Counting Crows Ordinary Superman

He’s unimaginative at his best but you know that’s all right

We like the way he sings

He’s unimaginative at his work but we say that that’s OK

He’s made for better things

He’s not intelligent, we like the way he dances, yeah

But you wanna talk about this, and talk about that

And everything he says is just impossibly fast

He’s never that bad, he’s never that good

He’s always just a little bit and over understood

And you say, “He’s un-American, a little bit.”

And you think that that’s so cool

You like a little bit, and if he’s un-American a little bit

Then you think that he’s no fool

Not matter if he is

So alternative, he likes to take our chances

And you wanna talk about this, talk about that

And everything he said is just impossibly crass

He’s never that bad, he’s never that good

He’s always just a little bit and over understood

And you say, “He’s not intelligent, we like the way he dances.”

He’s hearing voices he can’t attribute to the ordinary noise

What do you swallow to relax you ordinarily?

He’s looking forward to a little rest

But you know that he’s so tired

He’s fallen in a jar

And everybody’s sympathetic more or less even if he’s bombed or wired

It’s just the way we are

He’s so alternative, he likes the blue romances

But you wanna talk about this and talk about that

And everything he does is just impossibly fast

He’s never that bad, he’s never that good

He’s always just a little bit and over understood

And you say, “he’s so alternative, he like to take our chances.”

He’s hearing voices he can’t attribute to the ordinary noise

What do you swallow to relax you ordinarily?

Who’s gonna explain this mess to the mother of an ordinary boy?

Who was expected to act extra ordinarily

But you wanna talk about this, talk about that

And everything he says is just impossibly fast

He’s never that bad, he’s never that good

He’s always just a little bit ah ah ah ah

I don’t wanna talk about it, I don’t wanna talk about it

I don’t wanna talk about it, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna

I don’t wanna talk about it, I don’t wanna talk about it

I don’t wanna no no no no no no yeah
