  • Well, I don't think I can handle this
    A cloudy day in Metropolis
    I think I'll talk to my analyst
    I got it so bad for this little journalist
    It drives me up the wall and through the roof
    Lois and Clark in a telephone booth
    I think I'm going out of my brain
    I got it so bad for little Miss Lois Lane

    Lois Lane please put me in your plan
    Yeah, Lois Lane you don't need no Superman
    Come on downtown and stay with me tonight
    I got a pocket full of kryptonite
    He's leaping buildings in a single bound
    I'm reading Shakespeare in my place downtown
    Come on downtown and make love to me
    I'm Jimmy Olsen not a titan, you see
    He's faster than a bullet, stronger than a train
    He's the one who got lucky, got his cape
    Around Miss Lois Lane
    I can't believe my dilemma is real
    I'm competing with the man of steel

  • Monti from Usa Loved the originality of the Spin Doctors from the first time I saw them perform on SNL. I think they’re downfall was this was their peak. I know surgery slowed em down but I still listen to Pocket Full Of Kryptonite
