INTRO

 

When a lady so fine,

 

Sits all alone.

 

That's truly a crime.

 

Which I cannot condone.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

* * * * *.* ***

While I may not be a graduate,

Some say I should be a fireman.

 

*.* * * *.***

Of the police a.cademy.

 

But heat and heights would limit me.

 

** * * * *** ***

What I feel for you is far from counterfeit,

Given mouth to mouth is a requirement,

 

* ** * * * *.***

I offer more than mere camaraderie.

The better path for me is EMT.

 

 

CHORUS

 

It would be lots of fun,

 

To keep you up nights.

 

So let me be the one,

 

Who reads you your rights.

 

To time, and yes it would be nice,

 

If they weren't staring into a device.

 

To lovin', and I mean when you need it,

 

Not just when they find it convenient.

 

And, of course, the right to poetry.

 

Granted, the least important of the three.

 

Here's a chance you shouldn't squander,

 

Because I'm a true first responder.

 

Yeah, a first responder of love.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

OK, my uniform isn't nicely pressed.

 

And I might not be able to show,

 

A badge or an ID card.

 

 

But, by the way you are dressed.

 

Defining 'sexy', from head to toe.

 

Pinning down your 'intent' isn't hard.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

* * * * *.* ***

While I may not be a graduate,

Some say I should be a fireman.

 

*.* * * *.***

Of the police a.cademy.

 

But heat and heights would limit me.

 

** * * * *** ***

What I feel for you is far from counterfeit,

Given mouth to mouth is a requirement,

 

* ** * * * *.***

I offer more than mere camaraderie.

The better path for me is EMT.

 

 

CHORUS

 

It would be lots of fun,

 

To keep you up nights.

 

So let me be the one,

 

Who reads you your rights.

 

To time, and yes it would be nice,

 

If they weren't staring into a device.

 

To lovin', and I mean when you need it,

 

Not just when they find it convenient.

 

And, of course, the right to poetry.

 

Granted, the least important of the three.

 

Here's a chance you shouldn't squander,

 

Because I'm a true first responder.

 

Yeah, a first responder of love.
