The song was performed by Captain Hammer's actor Nathan Fillion, and a chorus as the homeless people.

Lyrics

It may not feel too classy
Begging just to eat
But you know who does that? Lassie.
And she always gets a treat
So you wonder what your part is
‘cause you’re homeless and depressed
But home is where the heart is
So your real home’s in your chest

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s got villains they must face
They’re not as cool as mine
But folks, you know it’s fine to know your place
Everyone’s a hero in their own way
In their own not-that-heroic way

So I thank my girlfriend, Penny
(Yeah, we totally had sex)
She showed me there’s so many
Different muscles I can flex
There’s the deltoids of compassion
There’s the abs of being kind
It’s not enough to bash in heads
you’ve got to bash in minds

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s got something they can do
Get up, go out and fly
Especially that guy – he smells like poo
Everyone’s a hero in their own way
You and you and mostly me and you

I’m poverty’s new sheriff
And I’m bashing in the slums
A hero doesn’t care
If you’re a bunch of scary alcoholic bums

Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone can blaze a hero’s trail
Don’t worry if it’s hard
If you’re not a friggin’ ‘tard you will prevail
Everyone’s a hero in their own way
Everyone’s a hero in their way

We’re heroes too
We’re just like you
We’re heroes too
