Rescue Me Lyrics

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

Instrumental break

Rescue me, oh take me in your arms
Rescue me, I want your tender charm
‘Cause I’m lonely and I’m blue
I need you and your love too

Come on and rescue me, come on baby
Take me baby (take me baby)
Hold me baby (hold me baby)
Love me baby (love me baby)
Can’t you see that I need you baby
Can’t you see that I’m lonely

Rescue me, come on and take my hand
C’mon baby and be my man
‘Cause I love you, ’cause I want you
Can’t you see that I’m lonely

Mmm-hmm (mmm-hmm)
Mmm-hmm (mmm-hmm)
Take me baby (take me baby)
Love me baby (love me baby)
Need me baby (need me baby)
Mmm-hmm (mmm-hmm) Mmm-hmm
Can’t you see that I’m lonely
Rescue me
Rescue me
Mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm

Fontella Bass spent a large amount of her life chasing a royalty check she never received for her million-selling smash hit ‘Rescue Me’.

It took her 28 years until she got paid, but it wasn’t in royalties for writing the song. Instead, she managed to get $50.000 from a lawsuit against American Express, who used it in a TV ad.
