Save me!
Somebody save me
Save me!
Somebody save me, yeah

Promised myself after the first romance
I wouldn't give ya a second chance
Said you see, you're sure to find
Ah, but the closer I get to ya, baby
You drive me stone out, a, my, mind

Save me!
Oh, yeah, save me, yeah, yeah
Those who love always give the most
We're cryin' together from coast to coast
Love leaves us cold and hurt inside
Leaves tears of ours unjustified
Beggin' you to, save me!
Yeah, need somebody to
Save me, yeah, hey, hey, hey

Yeah, um hum, yeah, um hum hum

Your love said you needed me
You abused my love, set me free
You didn't need, you didn't want me
Somebody help me, this man wants to taunt me
I'm beggin you to, oh oh!

Save me, yeah, he hee, save me!
Call in the cape crusader, green hornet
Kado too
I'm in so much trouble I don't know what to do
If you're thinkin a thing about me
Save me, oh yeah, yea, c'mon
I just said
Save me, baby c'mon
Save me, woo ho, save me!

Oh
Whoa ho ho save me
