I, I would be queen.
And you, you would be king.
Oh, nothing will drive them away.
We can beat them, just for one day.
We can be heroes, just for one day.
And you, you can be mean.
And I, I'll drink all the time.
'Cause we're lovers and that is a fact.
Yes, we're lovers and that is that.
Oh, nothing will keep us together.
We could steal time just for one day.
We can be heroes forever and ever.
Whatta ya say?
I, I wish we could swim, like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim.
Oh, nothing will keep us together.
We can beat them, forever and ever.
We can be heroes just for one day.
I, I would be queen.
And you, you would be king.
Oh, nothing will drive them away.
We can be heroes, just for one day.
We can be us, just for one day.
I, I remember standing by the wall.
The guns shot above our heads, and we kissed as though nothing could fall.
And the shame was on the other side.
Oh we can beat them, forever and ever.
And we can be heroes just for one day.
We can be heroes, we can be heroes, we can be heroes, just for one day.
Just for one day.
Special thanks to Mr. Robert Fripp. Hey hey!
