When I was 39 years old, I found out that there were people among us who have superpowers, and these people are known as Supertasters! To a Supertaster, bitter foods taste far more bitter, and sweets taste far, far more sweet. Then, about a year ago, I met a real, live Supertaster named John Lee. And this, ladies and gentlemen of San Francisco, 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) 'Cause he's a Supertaster (Supertaster) Every flavor explodes (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 walks like a man (walks 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) 'Cause he's a Supertaster

John Lee Supertaster Tastes more than we know Everything has a flavor Some flavors must go Some flavors must go Some flavors must go
