The Lyrics

Not gone so much for comedy with this one, due to current World events - but we can each of us, all play our part. Stay well, all!
I
I will stay home
& you
should stay home, too

If nothing
else drives it away
We can beat this
One of these days

We can be heroes
One of these days

& you
wash your hands clean
For twenty
seconds at a time

Cos we're sufferers
Those of us who catch
Yes, we'll suffer
until we match

Though nothing
Can keep us together
Like lessons from time
For a new day

Think of our heroes
What they must have gone through

Emulate

I
I wish I could sing
Just for you
Alas, I can't sing

Though nothing,
nothing can stop us from wanting
We can beat this
Forever & ever

Oh, we can be heroes
One of these days

I
I will stay home
& you
should stay home, too

If nothing
else drives it away
We can be heroes
One of these days

If we can be honest
One of these days

I, I can remember
(I remember)
Shopping at the Mall
(at the Mall)

And the throngs
& the songs in my head (songs in my head)
When we kissed
Without a care in the World (care in the World)

And the shame
We're in lock down
Oh, we can beat this
Forever & ever

Then we could be heroes
One of these days

Wômen kêyî chéngwéi yingxióng (🇨🇳)*
Possiamo essere eroi (🇮🇹)
Nosotros podemos ser héroes (🇪🇸)
One of these days
We can be heroes (🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿)

We're nothing
& nothing can help us
Maybe care workers
If you're in for a stay

Couldn't be in safer
hands for these days
