  • Rescue me
    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, 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 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
    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)
    Can't you see that I'm lonely
    Rescue me
    Rescue me

  • Steve from London,england.Original takess me straight back to the solo clubs of Liverpool,in the sixties!. (it wasn’t all merseybeat, you know what I mean, like.)
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 6th 1965, Fontella Bass performed "Rescue Me" on the ABC-TV program ‘Shindig!’...
    At the time the song was at #9 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; eight days later on November 14th, 1965 it peaked at #4 {for 1 week} and spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
    And on October 24th, 1965 the song reached #1 {for 4 week} on Billboard's R&B Singles chart...
    As a solo artist she had three other Top 100 records; "Recovery" {#37}, "I Surrender" {#78}, and "Safe and Sound" {#100}...
    She made the Top 100 two more times in duets with Bobby McClure; "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing" {#33} and "You'll Miss Me (When I'm Gone)' {#91}...
    May Ms. Bass R.I.P. {1940 - 2012}.
  • Rotunda from Tulsa, OkI'll always love this huge hit from '65 for Fontella. Until I read it here, I never realized so many future stars worked on this record back in '65. What a heritage this recording has! It's so sad that Fontella passed before her time. R.I.P. Fontella.
