He can be anything that he wants 
He can be anything that he wants 
Gene Hackman, what a guy 
He can bring a tear to your eye 
Well is there anything he can't do 
Well is there anything he can't do 
Gene Hackman, versatile 
The leading actor by a country mile 
Gene Hackman, 
Gene Hackman 
He knows his lines and he hits his marks 
He knows his lines and he hits his marks 
Gene Hackman, what a pro 
Show the crap actors where to go 
Gene Hackman, Gene Hackman 
Gene musta made a thousand films 
He's kissed a thousand girls and 
Made a thousand kills 
A -------3---2--0------3-------2---3-5--5-- 
E ------------------3---------------------- 
And lets not forget he chilled out superman 
He's not a man to be trifled with 
He's not a man to be trifled with 
Gene Hackman don't mess around 
Poppa Joe will clean up this town 
Gene Hackman, Gene Hackman 
Come on Gene 
{solo} 
Gene Hackman, Gene Hackman 
Gene musta made a thousand films 
He's kissed a thousand girls and 
Made a thousand kills 
And lets not forget he chilled out superman 
He's won a couple of oscars too 
He's won a couple of oscars too 
Gene Hackman, take a bow 
You deserve it all anyhow 
Gene Hackman, Gene Hackman 
Gene Hackman, Gene
