Got a Jones
to be a superhero
Rise like a phoenix
Fight like DeNiro
Knock me down
like a party crashes
I’ll be back
rising from the ashes

Wham! Bam!Crack!Boom!
Slap! Punch!Kick!Oooo!
Bang clang whack pop
a city of crime to mop(stop)
super duper hero
I'm more than a zero
don't need to break my nose
cuz I'm seattle's own -
Phoenix Jones

I don’t need
my own professor X
To make my brain cells
or my muscles flex
need a villain
To be a superhero
Someone to show the world
I’m more than just a zero

Wham! Bam!Crack!Boom!
Slap! Punch!Kick!Oooo!
Bang clang whack pop
a city of crime to mop(stop)
super duper hero
I'm more than a zero
don't need to break my nose
cuz I'm seattle's own -
Phoenix Jones
dont need to be mr fantastic
dont have to be radioactive
Don’t need no super-power
Don’t even get paid by the hour

Wham! Bam!Crack!Boom!
Slap! Punch!Kick!Oooo!
Bang clang whack pop
a city of crime to mop(stop)

NOTES
“Got a Jones to be a superhero,
rise like a phoenix, fight like DeNiro,” begins the cheeky new anthem from
Seattle power-trio, and apparent Phoenix Jones supporters, Quickie. “We
have a real life superhero patrolling the streets of Seattle. Fighting
crime. How could we not write a song about that?” asks Quickie’s lead singer
Lou Trez. “Phoenix Jones has a suit, he’s got guts, an alter-ego and a
secret hideout. But every caped crusader needs their own signature song.”

Loaded with comic book references from Fantastic Four to the X-Men (“I don’t
need my own professor X to make my brain cells or my muscles flex,”) the
song brings to mind the old Spiderman and Batman TV themes, but with louder
guitars and a punk-rock attitude.

“The song is a sincere tribute to Phoenixn Jones.”says Trez.
