Just Wanna Be in the Justice League

Jimmy Olsen + Tom Petty (Refugee)

I’ve had powers I’ve had costumes
Off and on I’ve been a hero
Cub reporter for the Planet
But the League thinks I’m a zero

Listen
I could join as Mr. Action
But I don’t think I will get satisfaction
See I just want to be in the Justice League
(he just wants to be in the Justice League)

Robots, villains, aliens
All of them have been members
Giant Turtle Olsen is all anyone remembers

Don’t care what my super-powers may be
Don’t want no watch that just goes zee-zee-zee
You see I just want to be in the Justice League
(he just wants to be in the Justice League)
Yeah baby I just want to be in the Justice League

Hey, I’m Superman’s pal
Couldn’t be closer unless I was a gal
I think the Leaguers all must be nuts
They let Snapper Carr in, baby, that guy’s a putz

Darkseid, Cadmus, Lex Luthor, I’ve been there for the big ones
But still the Justice League ignores me
Don’t think I’ll ever be one of the big guns

Honey I could be Elastic Lad
Even Porcupine Olsen wouldn’t be too bad
‘Cause see I just want to be in the Justice League
(he just wants to be in the Justice League)
The red-headed Beatle of 1000 B.C.
Flamebird, gorilla, werewolf, Viking, why not me?
