"Three Minute Hero" as written by and Neol Davies....
They asked you if you're alright,
You say yes,
But all the time you know,
It's a mess,
It's 5 pm and you're on your way home,
Just another day with that endless grey drone.

Three minute hero,
I want to be, a three minute hero,
I want to be, a three minute hero,
I want to be, a three minute hero,

Drag yourself along the road,
Sit on the bus,
Switch on your transistor,
Cause a fuss,
It's 11 pm and you're on your way home,
Just another night with that endless grey drone.

(Chorus)

I want to be, I want to be, I want to be,
A three minute hero,

(Chorus):
A three minute hero, I want to be,
A three minute hero, I want to be,
A three minute hero, I want to be,
A three minute hero,

It's too early in the morning,
Stupid job,
Don't want to eat, can't think straight,
Same as yesterday,
It's 7 am and you're leaving home,
Just another day with that endless grey drone,

(Chorus):
A three minute hero, I want to be,
(Repeat to fade)

    General CommentI always took it to mean basically being able to reach people through music. Not necessarily in a really deep way, just being able to make people feel good for, well, 3 minutes while they listen to a good song in the middle of a not-so-good day.

    General CommentI heard of them! I bought a cassette of their album "Too Much Pressure" in 1980, while I was passing through Germany. I enjoyed it immensely. I never quite understood what the 3 minute hero business was, although I had a mistaken idea from what I thought the words were near the end - "It's too early in the morning, (you) stupid JOCK!" hahaha. That could have solved it for me. Any other ideas?
