    "Time Loves a Hero" by Little Feat

    Well they say time loves a hero
    But only time will tell
    If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
    If he ain't he was sent here from hell

    Hear me well, seein' ain't always believin'
    Just make sure it's the truth that you're seein'
    Eyes sometimes lie, eyes sometimes lie
    They can be real deceiving'

    I got an uncle in Puerto Rico
    Spends his days in the sun
    And his nights in the casinos
    He left the States many years ago

    Took a fishin' boat to Puerto Rico
    Now my aunt, she is sad and lonely
    She'll never know that she drove him away
    As a coward I admire his courageous ways

    Well they say time loves a hero
    But only time will tell
    If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
    But if he ain't he was sent here from hell

    Some say my uncle, that he's a zero
    His life is as a shell, he left it back at Stateside
    I'd say he's doin' well, without his shell
    Bumming 'round the beaches of Puerto Rico

    The beauty of the sunrise and sunset
    To his friends he wish he could tell
    They're at home still runnin' for bells
    Better San Juan than his blue collar hell

    Well they say time loves a hero
    But only time will tell
    But if he's real, he's a legend from heaven
    But if he ain't he was sent here from hell

    Time loves a hero
    Well they say time loves a hero
