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 footprints on the moon
She's never made a solo hot air balloon ride
Around the world, no, she's just your everyday average girl (but)

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the cheerios
The voice that brings snow white to life
Bedtime stories every night
That smile lets her know
She somebody's hero

She didn't get a check every week like a nine to fiver
But she's been a waiter, and a cook and taxi driver
For 20 years, there at home, until the day her girl was grown
Giving all her love to her was her life's ambition
But now her baby's movin' on, and she'll soon be missin'
Her, but not today, those are tears of joy runnin' down her face

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her daughter in the wedding dress
She gave her wings to leave the nest
It hurts to let her baby go
Down the aisle she walks right by
Looks back into her mother's eyes
That smile lets her know
She somebody's hero

30 years have flown right past
Her daughter's starin' at all the photographs
Of her mother, and she wishes she could be like that
Oh, but she already is

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her mother in a rockin' chair
She runs a brush through her silver hair
The envy of the nursing home
She drops by every afternoon
Feeds her momma with a spoon
That smile lets her know
Her mother's smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero
