Late last night I got an s. o. s.The fairy tale girl’s in deep in distressShe says I don’t know where I amBut it’s near japanMy engine’s all burned outMy crew has all bailed outI don’t know where I amBut it’s somewhere near japanAnd she saidRescue meI’m somewhere in theChina seaI think I’m sinkin’ fastThis call is probably my lastI’m throwin’ out a life lineAnd I’m doin’ it for old time’s sakeThough I know you’re gonna break my heartOne more timeLate last night I got an s. o. s.The fairy tale girl’s in deep in distressShe says I don’t know where I amBut it’s near japanMy engine’s all burned outMy crew has all bailed outI don’t know where I amBut it’s somewhere near japanAnd she said thank you dearI think she sounded quite sincereAnd when she turned to goShe said I crave adventure don’t you knowAnd now she’s driftin’ on some chinese junkHer world is spinning and her hope has sunkSo I close my eyesAnd somewhere near japanThe spinning stopped and the world stood stillI broke her fall and I always willStrung out in no man’s landSomewhere near japanRescue me
