Men of Steel

CHORUS:

 

Men of Steel, Men of Steel

No matter how tired and old you feel

Get on your feet – this life is real

So take your lead from Men of Steel

 

A taxi driver named them

With his approval seal

“If you can walk those many miles,

You must be Men of Steel”

Their packs that he found heavy

To them were no big deal

When hefted on their shoulders

For they are Men of Steel

 

They’ve munched on buns and croissants

Between each hearty meal

And they don’t count the calories

For they are Men of Steel

They’ve sometimes suffered blisters

On ball of foot and heel

But that won’t stop their rambling

For they are Men of Steel

 

They might meet rams and big bulls

But that won’t make them squeal

They’ll vault a fence quite sprightly

For they are Men of Steel.

When oozing mud confronts them
They stay on even keel
Two sticks make them sure-footed
For they are Men of Steel

 

At dawn they’re up and booted

And quietly off they steal

The morn’s not made for lazing

For they are Men of Steel

While some like malls and shopping

For them there’s no appeal

In trudging down some High Street

For they are Men of Steel

 

They won’t just dine on travel films

That’s boredom reel to reel

And weather never stops them

For they are Men of Steel

They mean to keep on going

Not end in chairs on wheel

And who knows they might do so

For they are Men of Steel.

 

CHORUS:

 

Men of Steel, Men of Steel

No matter how tired and old you feel

Get on your feet – this life is real -

And step out like those Men of Steel
