Soap Star Joe

Album: Exile In Guyville (1993)
  • He's just a hero
    In a long line of heroes
    Looking for something attractive to save
    They say he rode in
    On the back of a pickup
    And he won't leave town
    'Til you remember his name

    He's just a hero
    In a long line of heroes
    Looking for some lonely billboard to grace
    They say he sprung from the skull of Athena
    Think about your own head
    And the headache he gave

    He's just a hero
    In a long line of heroes
    Looking for action at a price he can pay
    They say he's famous
    But no one can prove it
    Make him an offer just to see what he'll say

    Check out the dashboard lights
    Glowing all green and white
    He feels safe in the dark
    He wears his bluejeans tight

    He's just a hero
    In a long line of heroes
    Looking for something attractive to save
    They say he rode in
    On the back of a pickup
    And he won't leave town
    'Til you remember his name

    Check out the thinning hair
    Check out the aftershave
    Check out America
    You're looking at it babe Writer/s: LIZ PHAIR
