Intro Riff: |A D A D A D A A|G G G G A A G A|

intro riff
Woke up this morning, started to sneeze 

G                       A
I had a cigarette and a cup of tea 

intro riff
I looked in the mirror what did I see 

G                          A
A nine stone weakling with knobbly knees 

intro riff
I did my knees bend press ups touch my toes 

G                          A 
I had another sneeze and I blew my nose 

intro riff
I looked in the mirror at my pigeon chest 

G                                  A
I had to put on my clothes because it made me depressed 

D                 C
Surely there must be a way 

G                    A
For me to change the shape I'm in 

D               C 
Dissatisfied is what I am

G              A
I want to be a better man 


A (*)            G                 A                 (*) (intro riff can be played also)

Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman 


Woke up this morning, what did I see 
A big black cloud hanging over me 
I switched on the radio and nearly dropped dead 
The news was so bad that I fell out of bed 
There was a gas strike, oil strike, lorry strike, bread strike 
Got to be a Superman to survive 
Gas bills, rent bills, tax bills, phone bills 
I'm such a wreck but I'm staying alive 

[Look in the paper, what do I see, 
Robbery, violence, insanity.] 

Hey girl we've got to get out of this place 
There's got to be something better than this 
I need you, but I hate to see you this way 
If I were Superman then we'd fly away 
I'd really like to change the world 
And save it from the mess it's in 
I'm too weak, I'm so thin 
I'd like to fly but I can't even swim 

Superman Superman I want to fly like Superman 
Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman 
Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman 
Superman Superman I want to be like Superman 
Superman Superman I want to fly like Superman

About the artist behind I Wish I Could Fly Like Superman Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
