	     A          F#7
	And here comes Superspade [US single: Superman]
	     Bm     E      A

	I make as much noise as I want
	And no one ever cares

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	There's Carl over there with his funny old hair
	And he's never sad at all
	And when I grow up I want to run
	As fast as my friend Paul

	There's the prettiest girl in the whole wide world
	And her name is Melody Mend
	And here comes Ma with Brother Tom
	Who's probably my best friend
	          Bb
	My best friend
