To The Rescue

Original version (5:16)

So many heartbreaks, so little time.
Too many tragedies, too many crimes. Too many crimes.
Put on your body armour, prepare your alibi, Put on your body armour, prepare your alibi,
‘Cause there is no one else gonna put it right. ‘Cause there is no one else.

To the rescue, To the rescue
Down the streets and alleyways,
Past the Chinese takeaways.
To the rescue
Through the wind and driving rain,
To the rescue.
To the rescue
When the world won’t understand
And government’s got other plans,
To the rescue
Take the law into your hands
To the rescue.

Got a vigilante sleeping in my bed. Sleeping in my bed
I looked for Marilyn, I got Che instead – yes I did. I looked for Marilyn, I got Che instead.
But I’ll march behind you wherever you may go, But I’ll march behind you wherever you may go,
And I’m more proud of you than you can ever know. And I’m more proud of you.

To the rescue, To the rescue
Through the snow and freezing rain,
Down deserted country lanes.
To the rescue
Round the world and back again,
To the rescue.
To the rescue
Taking the forgotten ones,
The big and small, the old and young. To the rescue
When nobody else will come,
They’ll come to the rescue,
To the rescue.
