We're just a stone's throw
From burning hellfire
Does anybody know
Where did all the heroes go?

We've had our fill of
This gallery of scoundrels
The leaders of the world
Those power hungry liars

Rise up and sound the sirens
Send out the searching parties
All we need is a few good men

Send the S.O.S. and red alerts
All across the universe
Calling all honest men?

S.O.S. emergency
Sinking fast and getting worse
Where's your honest men?

In some village far away
Or in a little town pub
High on a mountain top
There must be an honest man
Calling all honest men

Throw out the tyrants
The aged fat cats
Outlived their usefulness
They have led us to this mess

Make them answer
Hold them to their promises
And throw them in the street
If they won't tell the truth

S.O.S. and red alert
All across the universe
Calling all honest men
(Calling all honest men)

S.O.S. emergency
Sinking fast and getting worse
Where's your honest men?
(Where's your honest men?)
To your stations
Man the ramparts
The barricades

We need new heroes urgently
We need a few good honest men
Calling all honest men
Calling all honest men

Call to him
He lives next door
Across the street
On the upper floor
It's our only hope we need him now

Send the S.O.S. and red alert
All across the universe
Calling all honest men
(Calling all honest men)

S.O.S. emergency
Sinking fast and getting worse
Where's your honest men
(Where's your honest men?)

Strike a blow, save the ship
We need a few good honest men
Calling all honest men
Calling all honest men

S.O.S. across the universe
Where's your honest
We need your honest
Calling all honest men

Calling out all over the world
(Sending out an S.O.S.)
Where's your honest men
Looking out all over the world
(Sending out to save the world)
We need your honest men

Calling out all over the world
(Sending out an S.O.S.)
Where's your honest men
Looking out all over the world
(Sending out to save the world)
We need your honest men

Honest men, ooh
Calling all honest men
Save the world, ooh
Calling all honest men

Honest men, ooh
Calling all honest men
Save the world, ooh
Calling all honest men

Ooh, calling all honest men
Ooh, calling all honest men
