Where have all the good men gone
Where's the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Late at night I toss
And I dream of what I need.
He's gotta be strong

I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light.
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life!
Somewhere after midnight

There's someone reaching back for me.

I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night.
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight.
He's gotta be sure

I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night.


Somewhere
Through the wind
And the rain
And the storm

I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night.

I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light.
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life.
