Daddy was superman 
when I was seven
There was nothing he couldn't do,
No boo boo he couldn't fix 
No monster he couldn't scare away.

Daddy was superman
When I was seven
Lifting me high in the air
Holding me close on his lap
Giving me all the pennies from his pocket.

Mama came home one night
Told me he was gone - forever.
I hugged my cat and hid
Under grandma's lilacs to cry.
I know he flew up to heaven. He could, you see

Because daddy was superman.
