Late last night I got an S. O. S.
The fairy tale girl's in deep distress
She says, I don't know where I am
But it's near Japan

My engine's all burned out
My crew has all bailed out
I don't know where I am
But it's somewhere near Japan

And she said, "Rescue me
I'm somewhere in the China Sea
I think I'm sinkin' fast
This call is probably my last?

I'm throwin' out a life line
And I'm doin' it for old time's sake
Though I know you're gonna break my heart
One more time

Late last night I got an S. O. S.
The fairy tale girl's in deep in distress
She says, I don't know where I am
But it's near Japan

My engine's all burned out
My crew has all bailed out
I don't know where I am
But it's somewhere near Japan

And she said, "Thank you dear"
I think she sounded quite sincere
And when she turned to go
She said, "I crave adventure don't you know?"

And now she's driftin' on some Chinese junk
Her world is spinning and her hope has sunk
So I close my eyes and somewhere near Japan

The spinning stopped and the world stood still
I broke her fall and I always will
Strung out in no man's land, somewhere near Japan

Rescue me
