"Save The Life Of My Child" lyrics

Save The Life Of My Child

"Good God! Don't jump!"
A boy sat on the ledge
And old man who had fainted was revived
He's all right
And everyone agreed
It would be a miracle indeed
If the boy survived
"Save the life of my child!"
Cried the desperate mother

The woman from the supermarket
Ran to call the cops
"He must be high on something" someone said
Thought it never made the New York Times
In the Daily News the caption read
"Save the life of my child!"
Cried the desperate mother

A patrol car passing by
Halted to a stop
Said officer MacDougal in dismay
"The force can't do a decent job
Cause the kids got no respect
For the law today"
And blah blah blah

"Save the life of my child!"
Cried the desperate mother
"Oh, what's becoming of the children?"
People asking each other

When darkness fell, excitement kissed the crowd
And it made them wild
In an atmosphere of freaky holiday
When the spotlight hit the boy
And the crowd began to cheer
He flew away

Oh my Grace
I got no hiding place
Oh my Grace
I got no hiding place
Oh my Grace
I got no hiding place
Oh my Grace
I got no hiding place
