[Kitty:]
Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?

[Marley:]
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn
[Kitty and Marley:]
and I dream of what I need

(Kitty & Marley)
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure and it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life, larger than life

[Marley and Kitty:]
Oh whoa!

[Marley:]
Oh!

[Kitty:]
Yeah!

[Marley and Kitty:]
Oh, oh!

[Marley:]
Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me

[Kitty:]
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat

[Marley and Kitty:]
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet? ([Marley:] Ooh!)

(Marley & Kitty)
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure and it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night

[Kitty:]
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Up where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear that there's someone somewhere watching me

[Marley:]
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood

[Marley and Kitty:]
Oh!
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure, he’s gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
