I know I'm just a workin' man
Sometimes I need a helpin'hand
It's alright

They hardly ever notice me
They never raise my salary
It's alright

Maybe I don't seem so bright
And my future's lookin' dim
And I'm runnin'in a rat race
That I'm never gonna win

I may not be a soldier, in the army
And I don't have money, fortune or fame
And there's nobody out there, strokin' my ego
But when it comes to my woman
I'm a hero

Don't know technology
I'm not as smart as I wanna be
It's alright

But I know the recipe
And the terminology
For love
Sure enough

Maybe she'd be better off
With an educated man
But she's my inspiration
And I'm doin'the best I can

I may not be a soldier, in the army
And I don't have money, fortune or fame
And there's nobody out there, strokin' my ego
But when it comes to my woman
I'm a hero

My baby loves me
And she knows what I need
And when she holds me
I feel like a king
And if I ever lose her
Oh Lord what would I do?
I might go crazy

I may not be a soldier, in the army
And I don't have money, fortune or fame
And there's nobody out there, strokin' my ego
But when it comes to my woman
I may not be a soldier, in the army
And I don't have money, fortune or fame
And there's nobody out there, strokin' my ego
But when it comes to my woman
I'm a hero
I'm a hero

She thinks I'm alright, oh Lord
She believes I'm a hero
