Greatest American Hero

Greatest American Hero, 1981-83
A teacher is given a special crime fighting suit by aliens. He was told by the aliens to liaison with the FBI. The suit grants him many abilities - flying, invisibility, telepathy, invulnerability, etc. Trouble is, he lost the instructions, so he’s always discovering new abilities. He can fly, but he generally crash lands.




Look at what’s happened to me
I can’t believe it myself
Suddenly I’m up on top of the world
It should have been somebody else


(We were REALLY desperate for heroes in the 80’s)

Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me



Just like the light of a new day
It hit me from out of the blue
Breaking me out of the spell I was in
Making all of my wishes come true


(The year she came in to our living rooms.
I think I was 12 ... the meme maker, not me!)

Just like the light of a new day
It hit me from out of the blue
Breaking me out of the spell I was in
Making all of my wishes come true



Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me



Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me
