  Asked you a question  I didn't need you to reply
A                    Bm            E
  Is it gettin' heavy  But they'll realize

  already as heavy as can be

That they should try to hold on the best they can

He hasn't dropped them  forgot them or anything
Bm            Dbm        Dmaj7       A          E  E  E    E   
It's just too heavy  for Superman to lift
