lyrics

You will never be seen on the movie screen or the evening news
The newspapers and websites will never be filled with the things you do
But that doesn't mean a thing, you see I've got my eye on you
I saw the way that you saved the day
Even though nobody else knew

You will never be famous or have medals pinned to you chest
No certificate is in the mail to say you passed the test
And no one thinks to raise your pay but that doesn't disturb your rest
You do the right thing anyway
Because you are the best

Yes you're a legend in your own lunchtime
You don't need to make the headlines
To be a legend in your own lunchtime
And if you're nobody's hero then you can be mine.

They wont throw you a party or a ticker tape parade
There's no table in the restaurant for you unless a reservation has been made
But you have never worried if they think you've made the grade
Your self respect is its own reward
And that you'd never trade

'Cos you're a legend in your own lunchtime
You don't need to be wined and dined
To be a legend in your own lunchtime
And if you're nobody's hero then you can be mine.

You don't have a theme tune or wear your underpants on the top
There's no comic books names after you or evil villains to stop
But if I needed a rescue I know you would everything drop
And you'd be braver than Batman, and the Avengers and Robocop
All put together

'Cos you're a legend in your own lunchtime
You don't need to be fighting crime
To be a legend in your own lunchtime
And if you're nobody's hero then you can be mine.
