lyrics

Long ago and somewhere far away
Another time another place
There came a special man
A message in his hand
To save us in the end
Here he comes again
As fast as he can

So baby
Don't be a fool
Don't be afraid
He's come to stay
Mercury man

He's breaking the sound barrier, too
Mercury man

Across the universe
A world away
At the speed of light he came
Falling from the sky
Beyond the great divide
To show us all the way
Flew in from mercury
With wings upon his feet

So baby
Don't be a fool
Don't be afraid
He's come to stay
Mercury man

He's breaking the sound barrier, too
Mercury man

Deep in the quiet
The deafening silence
Floating all alone in space
See how he's crying
So tired of trying
Every time to save the day

Here he comes again
As fast as he can

So baby
Don't be a fool
Don't be afraid
He's come to stay
Mercury man

He's breaking the sound barrier, too
Mercury man
