Daryle Singletary – Ordinary Heroes lyrics

Took a look at this morning's paper same old story as before
Headline read some crazy dictator trying to start another war
I can't wait for the day when the bad guys finally lose
And ordinary heroes make the news

Extra extra read all about it mother of four takes a part-time job
Does the shopping folds the laundry
When her man works late she keeps his dinner hot
Don't you know if it were up to me I'd give credit where credit is due
And let ordinary heroes make the news

I'd turn on the tube but what's the use I know what I will see
Another madman's on the loose and we're the ones who set him free
I wish someone could talk some sense into those tv crews
And let ordinary heroes make the news

Eye-witness report tune in at ten man gets up and goes to work again
Slaves all day to cover them bills
Don't want to pay his taxes but you know he will
If I had a camera and a satellite I'd give the world a better point of view
And let ordinary heroes make the news
[ guitar ]
We oughta fill the front pages and the tv screens with folks just like you
And let ordinary heroes make the news
Yeah let ordinary heroes make the news
