Somebody's Hero

She's never pulled anybody from a burning building. She's never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans screaming out her name. She's never hit a shot to win the game.

She's never left her foot prints on the moon. She's never made a solo, hot-air balloon ride around the world. No, she is just your everyday, average girl.

But she's somebody's hero. A hero to her baby with the skinned up knee. A little kiss is all he needs. The keeper of the Cheerios, the voice that brings Snow White to life, bed time stories every night. And that smile lets her know, she's somebody's hero.

She gets a check every other week, she's a nine-to-fiver. But she's also a waiter, a cook and a taxi driver there at home until her boy is grown. Givin all her love to him is her life's ambition and when her baby moves on she sure will miss him. But not today, those are tears of joy running down her face.

She's somebody's hero. She gave him wings to leave the nest. It hurts to let your baby go but as he looks back into his mother's eyes, his smile lets her know. She's somebody's hero.
