Rescue Me – Fontella Bass!

Rescue me, take me in your arms.
Rescue me, I want your tender charm,
’cause I’m a lonely and I’m blue,
I need you and your love too.

Come on and rescue me,
come on baby and rescue me.
Come on baby and rescue me,
’cause I need you, by my side,
can’t you see that I’m lonely.

Rescue me, come on and take my heart,
take your love and conquer every part,
’cause I’m a lonely and I’m blue,
I need you and your love too.

Come on and rescue me,
come on baby and rescue me.
Come on baby and rescue me,
’cause I need you, by my side,
Can’t you see that I’m lonely.
