Lyrics

The work you chose has a practical vein

But I read much more into your name Lifeguard

Patrolling the length and the breadth of your pool I call your name from the vestibule Lifeguard

Lifeguard, save me from life Save me from life Save me from life Save from the ails and the ills And from other things

The center of the town is a dangerous zone Drenched in phlegm every time that I come home

Lifeguard, save me from life Save me from life Save me from life Save from the ails and the ills And from other things

Love me Oh help me, oh Oh help me, oh Help me, oh

Lifeguard, guard me from life Lifeguard, guard me from life

The last bus home is the dangerous one A baseball bat across the collarbone Lifeguard

Lifeguard, save me from life Save me from life Save me from life 'Cause it's the only life I'll ever have I'm always good, I'm never bad And I've always been so kind To the sick and to the partially blind

Save me from life
