|By: They Might Be Giants|
When I was 39 years old, I heard a story. I found out that there're people walking among us who have superpowers. These people are called Supertasters. To a Supertaster, bitter fruits taste far more bitter, and sweets far more sweet. Then, just a few months ago, I had the chance to meet a real, live Supertaster named John Lee. And this is his true story:
Nothing tastes the same (nothing tastes the same) To a Supertaster! (Supertaster) When he tastes a pear (tastes a pear) It's like a hundred pears! (it's like a million pears)
He's got superpowers! (superpowers) He is a Supertaster! (Supertaster) Every flavor explodes! (explodes and explodes) Explodes and explodes!
John Lee Supertaster Tastes more than we do Everything has a flavor Some flavors are too much
Can't shut his mouth (can't shut his mouth) 'Cause he's a Supertaster! (Supertaster) Though he looks like a man (talks like a man) He is a Supertaster! (Supertaster)
Can't drink coffee or beer (coffee or beer) 'Cause he's a Supertaster! (Supertaster) Loves ice cream and pie! (ice cream and pie) He is a Supertaster!
John Lee Supertaster Tastes more than we know Everything has a flavor Some flavors must go
