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
