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.
