    A Hero ain't nothing but a sandwich
    Cold cuts, cheese and mayo on bread
    It just needs to taste good
    A Hero ain't a person alive or dead

    Heroes and role models
    People we don't even know
    Forced upon us by the media
    In newspapers, television and motion picture shows

    Athletes, entertainers
    Giving them real-side importance
    Indeed a joke
    I look up to plain old folk
    Honest and unpretentious
    Those who work hard at something everyday
    Those having heart-felt things to say

    A smile for a child
    A helping hand
    To all a friend
    Not on a high horse
    Being admired by weak-minded men

    Men seeking autographs
    Kissing another man's feet
    A Hero ain't nothing but a sandwich
    It's not to be adored
    It's just something to eat
