Superman said I am weary
Superman said let’s go home
The trees were strung with crosses and with ribbons
All the towns and churches had been bombed
Superman stood out in the rain
Leaning up against a crumbling wall
Still around were mostly cats and lepers
Birds no longer soared in the sky
Would you come away with me
Would you come away with me
Some fine day

Superman ducked into a phone booth
Made a call to Lois Lane
He said I will always love you
But it might just be too late in the day
Would you come away with me…

(lyrics: Dan Bern)
